windows home server remote acces 2 routers RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi, i have tried to use the windows home server console to enable remote acces.
    every time i try it cannot vertify that my server has remote acces

    ISP router, speedtouch 510 (10.0.0.138) (ports 80 443 and 4125 to 10.0.0.1)
    |
     ==  (10.0.0.1)DrayTek Vigor2910 (192.168.1.254) ports 80 443 and 4125 forwarded to 192.168.1.13
         |
         == access point
         == access point
         == computer
         == switch
              |
              == computer
              == computer
              == windows home server (192.168.1.13) ip-mac bind

    i have already tried to have the server in front of the switch, but it doesnt seem to make any difference.
    im really out of ideas, so any idea is apreciated

    It should be 80, 443, and 4125, not 4123.

  • it is 4125 my bad. i just typed it wrong here, it is correct in both routers

    also when using a proxy, i am unable to load the homepage
    when checking with http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ ports 80 and 443 are reported as open, but 4125 isnt

  • First, test remote access from off your own network.

    Second, I would check and see if either the ISP's broadband modem or your own router can be put in "passthrough" or "bridge" mode. In this mode it will not do any routing, it will effectively be a switch (and in the case of the ISP's device, a translator for your connection). You will not have to forward ports on multiple devices. This will simplify your networking environment.

    As for which ports are shown as "open", "closed" etc. by a testing service, it's normal for 4125 to be closed when tested.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
