Small firewall port request RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys.


    I have had a little problem that I would like to see addressed.


    when trying to connect to a remote pc from WHS my firewall blocked the attempt.

    I would like some way of being advised to add " port 12345" to my allow list in my firewall settings.

    This will save good old "mum " hours of hassle, as microsoft are pitching this as " easy ya mum could use it !! "

  • If you enable the webpage for remote connections using the gears on the WHS console, part of the process opens ports on your router using upnp. Once that is done you can connect remotely to your server using the web login interface in IE.
