WHS remote access goes to my Router's IP address (setup log-in page) rather than the WHS web page. RRS feed

  • Hi,

    WHS remote access goes to my Router's IP address (setup log-in page) rather than the WHS web page.

    If I am using a computer on the network I can type the WHS IP address (192.168.1.7) and get to the webpage, but when I type in mydomain.homeserver.com it just routes me to the router's setup page. (192.168.1.1).

    I have setup port forwarding in the router (and that seems to be working as I'd expect).

    I am using a D-Link G604T router. The support page for the router is here:

    Any suggestions?
    Cheers,

    If you're inside your LAN, it's probably because your router can't handle the loopback request.  (In any event, it doesn't matter internally as long as it works from outside your LAN.)

    If it's happening from outside your LAN, make sure the remote management function of your router is disabled.

    Thanks for the help,  Much appreciated.
