  • I assume this from within your internal network rather than via remote access from the Internet? If you have set up remote access, your certificates will refer to your xxx.homeserver.com domain rather than the internal name. Try accessing via xxx.homeserver.com either from an external or internally if your router supports loopback.

  • Yes, if I use my domain xxx.homeserver.com/connect I get a server error "

    Server Error

    <fieldset>

    404 - File or directory not found.

    The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable."

  • What happens if you choose "Continue to this website (not recommended)."?

    Also, have you tried pinging your server, to see if you get the correct ip address back?

  • Yes, continue to website results in Server Error 404 and ping results as follows:

  • Yes, the ping test results in correct IP returned. The Server Error 404 only results from the local network attempts to access server and indicates a certificate issue? See following:

  • Have you installed anything on the server recently?

  • Isn't the issue the certificate is issued for elad1.homeserver.com and the machine being addressed is whs2011/connect (on the internal network)?

  • Have you tried HTTP not HTTPS (since I get the same thing trying to connect secure)

    http://whs2011/connect

    or

    http://whs2011:65510/connect/


    edit or

    https://whs2011:65515/connect (for secure)

  • @Phil: No, http://server/connect should work, if the server's name is "server", and should redirect to https://server/connect, which should also work.

    @Doug: look at the image in the OP, where the URL starts with http://...

  • Ken

    It does not work like that on either of my two servers. No problem with external access but  have had to add security exceptions when accessing that way on my local network.

  • @Ken: OP has http://whs2011/?connect and I get the same "There is a problem with this website's security certificate.", but clicking continue redirects to login screen not connect download page.  His other screenshots show https://whs2011/connect and I can replicate his exact issue.

     

    But if I use format list above all is well.

  • @both... :)

    Interesting, because I tested that on a computer not joined to my server. I didn't get a certificate error, even though I have xxx.remotewebaccess.com as a vanity URL (and it's working fine). So I'm going to stand by "It should work." What should happen when you type http://server/connect into your browser's address bar is a redirect to https://server/connect, which will be the page from which you download and install the connector software. You shouldn't really have to mess around with ports.

    I wonder if there's something going on with name resolution?

  • When I type http://whs2011/connect it redirects to http://whs2011:65510/connect/ (machine not joined to whs2011).  The OP has a ? in his url that gave the first  cert error.  And https doesn't redirect, gives cert error, then 404 unless port 65515 is added.
