Operating systems and windows home server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just installed a new computer running Windows 7 Home Premium and it tells me, when I tried to do a remote access that the operating system is not supported.   So what operating systems are supported with WHS?    I also have two computers that are turned on and running and which backup routinely with WHS - and it tells me that the connection for both of those machines is "disabled."   what does that mean?  thanks for any help or insight you can give.

  • From the product guide you can find on the Windows Home Server support website:

    Your home computer must be running a version of Windows that supports Remote Desktop connections, such as: Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2 (SP2), Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, Windows Vista Ultimate, Windows Vista Business, Windows Vista Enterprise, Windows 7 Professional  and Windows 7 Ultimate.

    Disabled generally means remote desktop to the client machine is not allowed (setting on the client machine). To change on the client machine press Windows Key and Pause/Break key together, this open system properties window, select external connections tab and change appropriate setting.
