  • Question

  • I am trying to setup Remote Access for my WHS. Port 80 is blocked by my ISP. Ports 443 and 4125 are not. Is there a work around for port 80 being blocked or am I out of luck in regards to Remote Access

    Thanks

  • You just don't use port 80. You can connect remotely by using a URL of the form https://myserver.homeserver.com instead of http://...

    Note: if your ISP blocks port 80, presumably making a server available on your internet connection is against your terms of service/acceptable use policy. You should be careful; failure to follow your ISP's policies can result in loss of your internet connection or significant expense, if your ISP decides to bill you at a higher (usually business) rate because of the server.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
