Remote Connection Issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to configure my WHS to do remote connection.  I'm running XP Media Center Edition.  I have a Linksys WRT310N Router with a hub.  Server is plugged into the hub.  Here's what I have done so far:
    1.  Set up a password in my user account and turned remote connection on in XP.
    2.  Called Cox (ISP).  They've told me to contact Linksys.
    3.  Called Linksys.  They said to go to and go the Port Triggering.  I entered Ports 80 and 443.

    Still not able to verify that remote website (now, I haven't set that up yet, but it's not prompting me to.  Should I?) is available from the internet.

    What am I doing wrong?

  • You don't want to use "port triggering", you want to use "port forwarding". You should take a look at portforward.com for more details; they have guides for configuring almost every router.

    And yes, you should set up remote access on your server. Until you do so, it won't work.

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