2011 home server, cannot activate remote access RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have just re-installed Windows 2011 home server. All seems reasonable except I can't activate the remote access on it. The box ect. is grayed out.

    In the original install of 2011 everything operated fine. I've not knowingly done anything different on the clean install nor my network.

  • I am assuming you are trying to:

    - Access the server through Remote Web Access; and,
    - Press the Connect button to the Server?

    If so, is the user allowed to? I *think* you should check:

    Dashboard -> Users -> Select one -> View the account properties -> Remote Web Access -> check Server Dashboard.

    Edit: Ah, no, if that check is not there then you would not even see the Server on the webpage. What *exactly* are you doing?
