accessing an internal site outside of the server network RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all

    I can access the Moodle and Sharepoint sites with the internal IP:port number, but can't access them outside my network.  I try using fieldway.homeserver:987 for my sharepoint site and homeserver:45880 for my Moodle site.

    I installed WHS 20011 and within in it I installed the Microsoft Webmatrix and create a Moodle site with the port number been assign automative.  Also I installed SharePoint Foundation 2010 onWindows Home Server 2011 from instruction from  http://www.scribd.com/doc/51951290/Installing-SharePoint-Foundation-2010-on-Windows-Home-Server-2011

    I did the following:
    1. Forward the ports on my Router
    2. Created Inbound Rules on the “Windows Firewall with local advanced security on local computer”.
    3. “On the Internet Information Services 7”, under the Servername/Sites I add the sites and bindings the correct port.

    Anybody got any ideas

  • Hi Fieldway, after checking the issue, it seems this is a general SharePoint 2010 foundation accessing related issue. As this forum focuses on WHS specific issues, this inquiry would best be posted to SharePoint forum:


    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us.  Thank you for your understanding.
