  • Default website access in a browser is through http.

    This has been disabled for Windows Home Server (and SBS) to increase security (i.e. to ensure sensitive stuff like passwords are no longer going in plain text through the connection and can easily be read by a man in the middle attacker).

    Slight inconvenience... you could overcome it with a shortcut on your desktop or a favorite in your browser.
