  • Probably your router doesn't support NAT loopback (or it's disabled). To access server web page from LAN go to http://yourservername. If you don't like this there's a number of ways to solve this

  • so i retested  now considering i have 4 different websites including the WHS website they all point to port 80    now  if i type in http://servername then i can access it locally but that takes me to the home page of the whs  but i wanna be able to access the others as i tried the other stuff and got confused with the first section in the article.  but i even did http://servername:1234  and added an extra port in for the wesbsite  of 1234  but that didnt work either   so i stumped

  • now things really messed up i see it didnt show 

    but i had my server on a dmz   now i figured thats the problem maybe its outside the network stuff so i put it in and put virtual and port forwarding to the server at port 80

    yet now  i cant access my website either internally or externtally from remote computers  gets worse lol

  • ok finnally got it to work in the end  even though i had entered them in  u had to click the check box, but i did that before but what i found is u cant click the check box beside the port forwarding u did u had to create the port forwarding to my server and port 80 click save wait 15 seconds while it reboots and saves the router then go back check off the check box and then click save again   found it by acident  then the check box stays checked and what not

    thanks for the help
