Logging into xxx.homeserver.com - "Server Error in '/Home' Application" displays RRS feed

  • Question

  • I picked up a retired Dell PowerEdge 650 from work recently and built it up as a WHS.
    All critical Microsoft updates have been applied, and NO third party software has been installed at all. It's pure WHS out of the box.

    I use Comcast and had to configure non-standard ports for http and https. After updating the default website, firewall, and router, I can now access my new homeserver remotely via https://xxx.homeserver.com:xxxx

    The problem is that when I browse to this address, I get an error:

    Server Error in '/Home' Application.
    The resource cannot be found.
    Description: HTTP 404. The resource you are looking for could have been removed, name changed, unavailable, etc.. Please review the following URL and make sure that it is spelled correctly.
    Requested URL: /home/home/default.aspx

    If I manually modify the URL to /home/default.aspx (removing one of the '/home' strings) it works great.

    Can you help?

  • I think you've incorrectly modified something in your remote access configuration. Did you change the local path for the Home web application? It should be c:\inetpub\home .
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • Where did you direct the no-standard port?  You indicated using https://xxx.homeserver.com:xxxx where xxxx might perhaps be 8080??  You need to configure your router to send that external access to the normal port number on your WHS.  I can't tell you exactly how to do that because it's router dependent.
