Domain access RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have setup a Windows Live domain in the Windows Home Server. I can use my WAN address (https://x.x.x.x) to login to the home server but not the domain (https://xxxx.homeserver.com) that setup by Windows Live??

    Thank you

  • Please test from some location other than your home network. Many routers cope poorly with looping back to an internal machine through the WAN address.

  • I was using my friend's home connection to log back into the home server

    Did you try it without the s?  Does everything show up with a green check mark in the Router and Domain Name tabs?  If not, which ones don't?

  • In the Windows Home Server console, what do you see when you click Settings → Remote Access → Details... (under Router)? What is shown under Domain Name on that same page? What about when you click Details... under Domain Name?

  • It is possible that your router is not set properly, even when UPnP should be working. You may need to go to your router's configuration and manually forward ports to your WHS machine.

  • I have forwarded ports 80, 443 and 4125 to the WHS already.

    You can try going to Shields Up! and check those ports to see what it shows the status of those are.

  • I have done the shields up test and all 1056 ports are stealth. Is it a good thing?? But I have forward port 80, 443 and 4125, so I expected those 3 ports are shown as opened.....

    Is it something to do woth my router???

  • If the ports that Windows Home Server uses are reported as STEALTH by Shields Up!, then your ISP is blocking them. You'll have to contact your ISP to find out what you can do about it.

  • Please correct me if I'm wrong, but he said that he could connect fine by using his WAN IP, only when he tried his xxx.homeserver.com domain it failed, so it sounds like a DNS issue to me and not a problem with the port-forwarding Wink
