i can not remote access my windows home server (2011), through domain ......homeserver.com RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there;

    it is the first time i am setting up a windows home server 2011; everything went fine, except that i can not remote access my server;

    OPerating system is windows 7 ultimate and browser is IE 9; my modem is model : Starbridge Lynx - L526; i thought maybe it is a firewall or modem issue; i enabled upnp and i also could  not do the port forwarding in my modem (ports 80 443 and 4125);

    do i have to change the modem ? or is there any solution for this problem; somebody know any solution or idea  on how to solve this problem; thnks a lot  . decubamd

  • First, you only need to forward ports 80 and 443 to your server; 4125 was used by V1 but isn't needed by the current version.

    Have you tried to access your server from someplace other than the location your server is in? Can you tell us what error you see when you try to access your server from afar?

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
