  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have set up remote web access on the server but when I try to remote login to the sever I get told "This page can't be displayed" and to check TLS and SSL are enabled which I have done. I then set the troubleshooter running and it tells me The device or resource (mysever.homeserver.com) is not set up to accept connections on port "https. I have tried to find this but cannot, what have I missed or forgotten to do?

  • Have you checked to make sure that ports were forwarded correctly from your router to your server (if you're using UPnP this should have been done automatically,otherwise you will have to do it by hand) and have you tested from a location off your local network, such as a coffee shop or the library?

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • Thanks Ken. As I setup remote web access microsoft said it had set up port forwarding the relevant ports so I believed them. However, checking my router I found no ports were forwarded. I have now set up ports 80, 443 and 4125 but as my router does not have the loopback facility I cannot check if the remote web access is working from a local pc. I will have to ask family to check out via the homerserver.com address. Out of curiosity, would they be presented with a default web page or the RDP screen I get when I try from a pc on the network? I have to use https://192.168.xx.xxx/remote.

    They will be presented with a login screen first, and if you create an account for them to login in too, then once logged in, they would see the same thing you see when you click 'remote web access' from your connector panel.
