WHS attempts to setup Remote Access but fails on "Verifying that your remote Web site is available from the internet" RRS feed

  • Question

  • From internally on the network, I have attempted to connect to my homeserver and it asks for a password for the router.  It is almost like the router is not forwarding ports 80 and 443 to my homeserver.  Although I found the document online that takes you through all setups of the specific routers and I have it done exactly as it says.  TCP ports 80, 443, and 4125 are all forwarding to the IP of the homeserver.  I am not sure what else to do.  Please help!

    Don't try from inside your LAN.  Some routers have problems with loopback requests.  Try it from outside your house (friend's house, coffee shop, etc).
