UK Sky Broadband Users trying Remote Access over Internet on WHS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    Is there anyone from the UK here who uses Sky Broadband? I have a Netrear Sky provided router. I have accessed the routers web page and opened all the ports 80, 443 & 4125. I have even set the DMZ to the routers IP address but as yet I cannot access the WHS over the internet using the assigned HPhome.com name. I can access the web page if I type in the IP address on a networked computer but when I try the hphome.com address I get a black screen with red writting saying unauthorized access. 

    Has any one else come accross this problem? What have you been able to do to remedy it?  DOes WHS remote access work on Sky Broadband?

  • You may have to try from an external address, as your router may not support internal loopback
    You can use the many port checker sites to see whether those ports are open
