Windows home server 2 and error 403. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have purchased windows home server 2.  I have installed the software, run windows update for the patches.

    Next I set the server up for remote access.

    Slategrey252.homeserver.com.  Homeserver does its stuff then verifies that the server is now available. 

    I try to connect to it and it tells me that it cannot connect error 403.  It then tells me there is a certification error

    everything else works. I just cannot get to https://slategrey252.homeserver.com

    Frankly I'm stuck.

    Any help ?

    Apparently you have a Netgear device in front of your WHS 2011 computer that has a long expired certificate on it:

    You'll need to check your Netgear documentation and resolve this issue first. This, by the way, is not a WHS 2011 issue.
