I have built a WHS 2011 server. All was well except my Win 10 PC would not back up to it. Installing the KB281721 hotfix was done on the server and part of the process was to reinstall the connector on the PC. I uninstalled from control panel. I then had a ton of problems connecting to WHS 2011 connect webpage. This turned out to be being blocked by the server windows firewall, which started working ok when I disabled the private firewall.
Now the connector web page comes up and initiates the install. Connect a computer wizard starts up and asks me for the server name or IP.
Neither work. Whether I enter the server name or the IP it says the server could not be located.
If I open the remote access web page from any device inside or outside LAN, I can connect to the server and carry out all you would expect. I can connect via RDP, I can ping the LAN IP, I can ping the FQDN and WAN IP.
The server is showing in Network and all shares are browse-able.
I installed the find my server wizard and that failed to find it even using the command line switch with the <servername>
So how do I get the server connector up and running.
I have added theses ports to the router
3389 disabled at the moment until I can secure it better
I found 3 copies of windows home server in the listed devices and have removed all of them.
I am at a loss as to what to do next. Hoping some experienced WHS 2011 server people know what to do next.......
My 5 or 6-year-old HP desktop is experiencing some severe hardware issues with the hard drive. I've decided that it might be best to keep the basic machine but replace the old platter hard drive with an SSD drive. I've currently got Windows 10 Professional, which I upgraded from Windows 8.* Pro. Bottom line is I have a valid Windows 10 Pro license. So, there's a few questions I want to ask, in preparation for doing this.
First question is how do I transfer my Windows 10 Pro license from one old hard drive (a platter drive) to a new SSD drive? I've heard that Microsoft has made this easier, but I still don't know what the steps are.
And how about the data from the apps that we're using? I've got Office 365 Home Edition and have 6 Windows Profiles currently on this machine. What's the best way to migrate them off this old HD to the new SSD?

my windows 7 laptop is in the domain of my server, client connector installed, and backup etc working.
when i am at my office, or connected via a hotspot of my iphone, i want to make a vpn connection.
everytime i start this, i see shortly that username and login are checked, but that is it, connection stops.
i know i am overlooking something, but as allways, the longer you look, less change of finding it.
any suggestions?. No need to hurry, i can only test this again on saturday.😩😏. Have to work tomorrow.
any help is appreciated
A recent change in my ISP setup forced me to deal with an issue I have been keeping on the back burner. A while back, I had to change to a new VPN client for work. I had difficulty connecting as it told me a firewall must be blocking IPSEC or UDP. Blaming it on the router I had circled thru several with some initial success but ultimately failure. Having no choice now, I have narrowed it down to my network switch. the VPN is IPsec to a cisco vpn server (port 4500 and all).
Bottom line, with switches like GS108Tv2 and GS-1100-5 between my work pc and router (currently Sophos UTM 9) no problem. But my fancy tplink t1600g-28ts, no go. it validates the password ok but can't connect the vpn itself.
Any seasoned veterans out there have an idea how this switch could be messing it up?
thanks in advance!
I'm new around here, looked for the presentation thread but haven't found any!
Anyway I hope to be able to contribute (as far as my newbie's knowledge will be useful )....
Speaking about what I'm trying to do, I have this amazing microserver gen8, on which I have 2 3tb wd red as storage and an ocz 125gb ssd on 5° port.. Installed a couple of days ago mr. PROXMOX (I'm a complete newbie to it too ) and configured the xpenology 6.0 that runs amazingly!
Now.. I'm just wondering which is the best option to configure a vpn (possibily openvpn) and from my inexperience I found a couple of options:
- try a container with turnkey debian 8 OpenVPN
- install ubuntu on a VM and setup openvpn
- try the vpn server on xpenology
or the least pleasurable
- install openvpn on my windows 10 pc and leave it turned on in way to access the microserver through vpn..
What do you think is better to do? Considering that I am a real noob and will need some guide or some tutorial (already googled something and Have found a lot of material on the openvpn site.. but honestly can't find so much about proxmox and vpn)
PS: sorry for my english, but I'm italian and I'm still learning!
thanks a lot!
