    You need to use a user account (not the Administrator account) that has already been set up to allow Remote Access.  If you don't have any user accounts configured for that, there is no way to access the server remotely until you get home and create/change one that allows it.

  • If you're talking about remote desktop comunication then you should do this from a remote host in the START > RUN command prompt: mstsc /v:servername /admin

    If the /admin switch doesn't work then do /console

    The username would normally be administrator and the password is whatever you set during installation.

    To protect the security of your home network, you cannot log on remotely by using the Administrator user account. To administer your home network remotely, log on with your own user account. Then click the Console button on the Computers tab to connect to the Windows Home Server Console.
