Problme connecting to WHS Webpage RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Forgive me in advance if I am asking a dumb question.  I have a WHS and running W7 64bit on my main PC which is set up and works fine with access to shared folders, backups etc.  I also have set up remote access desktop and webpage.  When setting up the webpage as a subdomain of homserver.com my WHS runs all the tests   e.g   checking it is able to connect from internet and they all pass ok.  I can connect to remote desktop using other PC' e.g. at work but not from my main PC at home. When i connect my laptop to my home LAN it won’t connect to my webpage but when I connect my laptop to internet via a broadband sim it will connect fine.
    The reason I need this is I a running Xmarks BYOS and can't synchronise.
    Windows 7 network diagnostics fails.WHS Toolkit says all is fine as does the checks around port forwarding etc when I have rebooted my PC.  SO I figure there is a problem with my network configuration but don’t know how to track it down. Can anyone help steer me to a relatively easy to understand and free network analysis tool? I don’t want the answers just where to get the right tools to find out for myself.

    Many Thanks

  • If it works (through the http://xxx.homeserver.com vanity URL) from outside your home, but not inside your home, then when you're at home you can try connecting using http://servername instead (replacing servername with the name of your server). Many consumer routers have problems "looping back" from inside their network to the external IP address.

    As for "Xmarks BYOS", you would need to contact the ISV for specific support there. It's not a Microsoft product and I'm pretty sure that it's not going to be supported on Windows Home Server...
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
