Other Computers in network not showing under "Computers & backup" RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I open "WHS Console" and look at the Computers & backup tab, no computers would show up. I have since installed and set a hard drive up under server storage for backing up. Now the server shows up under the Computers & Backup tab, but no other computers show up.

    I have 2 windows 7 boxes, and 3 XP Pro SP3 boxes. How can I get these to show up in the Computers & Backup tab?

  • You will need to install the Windows Home Server connector on your home computers. This isn't (can't be) done automatically. The easiest way to do this is to open a web browser on each computer and type in the address http://server:55000 (substitute the name you gave your server for "server"). Then follow directions.

    You should also read over the help files in the Windows Home Server console; there is a great deal of useful information.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
