  • Have you tried http://<Server IP address>/Connect? Can you ping the Server from your Client?

  • You did put your server "name" in place of the word "server"?   In other words, 

    http://SERVER NAME/connect

  • yes, the server name is server

     

    so http://server/connect or http://<ip address>/connect

  • Has this ever worked or is it a new installation? Try this:

    To connect your computer to the server

    1. Log on to the computer that you want to connect to the server.

    2. Open an Internet browser, and in the address bar, type http://<servername>/Connect, where <servername> is the name of the server, and then press ENTER.

      Alternately, click Start, click Computer, double-click Network, and then double-click the server name in the Other Devices section.

  • Try my suggestion above and then this:

    Microsoft - Find My Server
