Remote Access claims that my web site is not available from the Internet even though it is RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to enable remote access but whenever I run the Wizard or try to repair it, it claims that my web site is not available from the Internet. However, it IS availble, I successfully connected to my http://<myserver> and https://<myserver> URLs, not just from my ISP but also from another ISP. So I know it's accessible, but why does WHS keep failing that check and refuses to enable it? I manually forwarded ports 80, 443 and 4125 on my router to do this, as UPNP wasn't doing it. Bottom-line: it works, how do I force WHS to admit it and enable the feature?

  • By the way, I tested with and while 80 and 443 show "Success", 4125 shows "Connection Refused". Is that normal, since Remote Access is not yet enabled, or is that a problem?

  • If you can access your server remotely, Remote Access is enabled. In some situations, though, Windows Home Server can't determine that that's the case.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • I found the problem, it was working, but I wasn't seeing the Remote Access tab because I wasn't using IE.
