WHS 2011 remote web connection problems RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everybody.

    I'm having some trouble setting up my remote web access on my server.

    I've set up my router and the domain name(xxxxxx.homeserver.com) but I cant get any connection with HTTPS://, I get the error "Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED): The server refused the connection."

    But when I try HTTP:// I get a log in screen that says "server says: DSL router" which then logs me into my router settings page???

    my router is a Sagem F@st2504 and I have forwarded port 80,443 and 4125 to my server IP.

    Any help would be great

    Cheers Dave.

  • Probably your router doesn't support loopback connections; try testing from somewhere other than your home.

    It's also possible that you have remote administration turned on in your router; if this is the case I recommend in the strongest possible terms that you turn it off immediately, as it's a gaping security hole in any router where it's turned on.

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