Cannot see "Computers" Option on remote web access, only Shared files??? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey guys, im new to these forums and new to WHS too and so far the info on here has helped me vastly so many thanks in advance!

    Something is just baffling me though;

    I Have the 120 day trial version and have settup remote access accounts. When logging into these remotely I only get the option to view Shared files, and no option to access computers. Am I missing something obvious???

    Thanks in advance for any help provided

  • Please use Internet Explorer instead of Firefox/Mozilla, Opera, Chrome, etc. Or if you're using Firefox, there's an add-on for it called IE Tab which allows you to host Internet Explorer within Firefox.

  • Hi,
    do you use Internet Explorer or another browser?
    Since the WHS Remote Access features rely on ActiveX, other browsers will not work out of the box.
