Remote Access Question RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to set up remote access for WHS. Everytime I click on Turn Web Sites ON, WHS thinks for a minute and then shutsdown the console. I can RDP into the machine as well as go to http://severnamehere, and access the server. So should I be concerned that WHS acts this way?

    Thanks,
    Catanbri

  • Hi,
    do you have the Windows Firewall on Windows Home Server disabled? This, together with an installed WHS Toolkit 1.1, may cause the console crash after clicking on Settings. The resulting event looks similar from what I remember. If this is the case:
    Enable the Windows Firewall Service on the server again (Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services) again and start the Windows Firewall to fix this behavior.

  • Hi,
    this is strange.
    Is the server up to date (all updates for WHS installed)?
    Did you install any 3rd party software or Add-Ins, which could cause the issue?
    Can you login locally into your server and check the event log for relevant error messages?

  • Yes the server is up to date. I haven't yet had time to try any add-in's. I am able to login locally. Which event log should I be looking at?

  • There are not too many event logs - crashes can be recorded in the application log or in the system log, access problems may also be logged in the security log.
    So each of them (or none) might contain the info we are searching for.

  • Could you please submit a bug report on Connect? Be sure to include logs collected/uploaded using the Windows Home Server toolkit.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • I don't know how the Windows Firewall got turned off, but that was the problem.
    Thanks So Much Olaf.
