27. prosince 2011 15:53I'm trying to setup the remote access for my WHS. I have setup my domain name thru TZO, but when I try to configure the remote access, the wizard tells me that it cannot verify remote access to my website from the internet. My router is a Cisco E3000. I have also checked to see if my router is blocking port 80 (it's not). I can back my computer up to the server and access the shared folder on my computer, but I cannot access it via the internet. Also, the transfer speed from my computer to the server is incredibly slow (164 kb/second) I don't know if this is normal or not. I would primarily like to use this to store/stream movies, music, and pics. I'm not super computer/router savvy, so if you have any suggestions for me they would be greatly appreciated, even more appreciated if they're broken down into lame-man's terms. Thanks for any help.

Which Version of Windows Home Server are you using?
WHS1 requires Ports 80 443 and 4125 to be forwarded to your Server.
WHS 2011 requires Port 443 (https://) only - (Port 80 is optional for http:// access although your router may complain you should still be able to access your site via https://)
Use ShieldsUp at www.grc.com to confirm the Ports are actually forwarded correctly (you may need to disable UPnP and forward manually) - they should show up as RED and "Open".
60MB/sec on a GB LAN is the sort of transfer speed you should expect.
