Using WHS 2011 Media player over the internet RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm attempting to configure my home server to support Windows Media Player to allow network access using Linked IDs.  I have done this succesfully on nornal Win 7 machines but on the server when I click on Link an Online ID the dialog flickers but nothing happens. In Win 7 a dialog box pops up allowing me to link my Live ID to my account.

    Why can't I do this with WHS 2011? It sort of contradicts the term "server".


    I tried downloading and installing an ID provider from http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/online-id-providers but it made no difference.
