connect my EX495 to my network instead of default workgroup RRS feed

  • Question

  • My home network name is "NET" and the WHS connects to the default "workgroup"  how do I change it to "NET" ????   Why doesn't the WHS software have a control panel system properties area so I can change the workgroup to my "NET" instead of the defaul  "workgroup" ???

  • You can log in to your server using Remote Desktop; use the user name Administrator and the password you set for the console. Note that this is unsupported; there are tools you could access through the desktop that are capable of causing serious issues with your server. As long as all you're doing is changing the workgroup your server belongs to, though, there's little risk.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • Do you have any experience using tversity?    Twonky is useless and won't work and tversity looks good but I'm new to all of this and having trouble understanding how to install it on the WHS.

    I appreciate any help I can get.

  • thanks for the reply.  I was able to get my network renamed so all computers and WHS have the same name.
