    If you're referring to the Windows Home Server password, then you'll need to reset it using the help files.  However, if you're talking about a local user, then the "Remote" access would be "Administrator" for the username and your WHS password for the password.

    http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/whssoftware/thread/466a60a9-2c4c-433b-8504-e666f938c719  may provide you with some clues (I would try the loginrecovery first, if you can).  If you're able to log in with a Console (connector) you can change any password through the settings tab (or the properties of the user account).

    Hope this helps, and have a great day:)

    Not remotely.  You need to open the Console (from a client within your LAN that has the Connector software installed) and change the password for your user name from there.

    There is no supported way to change/reset the server (a.k.a. Administrator) password without first knowing/using the current server password.  You can change the server password if you already have the Console open, but since you would need to know the current server password in order to have the Console open in the first place, that won't help much.  :)  If you forget your server password, you have to reinstall WHS.

    However, if you're talking about a local user, then the "Remote" access would be "Administrator" for the username and your WHS password for the password.

    You cannot logon through the Remote Access website using the Administrator username/password.  It must be a user account on the server (that has previously been granted Remote Access).
