    I have read many threads about getting this to work, but I still can't access my WHS remotely. 

     

    What I have done:

     

    1) I can access http://<server>/home

    2) I have forwarded ports 80, 443, and 4125 to my servers IP (did it manually though my routers web interface)

    3) When I go to http://<domainname>.homeserver.com a login box pops up with the following: "The server <domainname>.homeserver.com at MTA-1 requires a username and password."  Note this is not the WHS login screen, but a login window.

    4) When I go to https://<domainname>.homeserver.com I cannot connect.

    5) I spoke with my ISP and they told me that port 80 is not being blocked on my account.

     

     

    Please help me get this figured out. 

     

    Thanks

  • I figured out my problem.  I had forgotten that my digital phone adapter was installed in betwen the modem and router.  I took that out and it worked.  Now I guess I have to install the digital phone behind the router, right?

    I think thats your Router setup page thats coming up. give me you Home Server domain name, I will test from here out side your network http://<domainname>.homeserver.com .

    I think it will work from outside your network.

  • the domain is ferbers.homeserver.com .

     

    I asked a friend to try it and he couldn't see it. 

     

    Another thing:  I went to this "Shields Up"  page http://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?rh1dkyd2 and it says all my ports are in "stealth".

    Sounds to me like your ISP is blocking them after all (or something is wrong with your router/server configuration).  Are you sure you forwarded the ports to the correct IP address?  Is your server set with a static IP?
