Win 10 Connector Problem

Recommended Posts

MoonGlum

Hi All,

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

65510 

3389  disabled at the moment until I can secure it better

4125

443

80

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.......

By the way, the connector was working fine up until yesterday, dashboard and all links etc working fine too.

Posting the above in Experts Exchange too to see if there's any luck there

      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?

      Hi, hoping for a bit of guidance on what todo with my N40L box.  I have it sat in the living room connected to the TV.  Its running Windows 10 with Kodi, sabnzb, torrents, and a bunch of discs with all my files and media.  I would like to have a solid setup that can be used to access my data,, share game ISOs, download NZBs, do backups, etc.
       
      I'm going with WHS 2011, is this the best option considering the other HS OS's available such XPEnology, FreeNas, etc? 
       
      Specs:
       
      N40L:
      8GB ATI GPU BIOS Hack 128GB SSD (OS sitting in DVD Bay) 1.5TB HD 200gb HD 200 gb HD2 I have a 750GB SSD - not sure what to use this for?  
      Thanks for your help!

      Hi folks,
       
      I have had my install of WHS2011 for some time and with a static IP have been able to use remote access by switching on that service albeit not using microsoft's domain name registration.
       
      The system has worked for about 5 years but is now grumbling about certificates when I login either remote or using one of my PCs on the local home network using mstsc.   The error message is attached.    Clearly if I click yes and ignore the error I can continue as I can when accessing the server using the static IP.  
       
      I have looked at various posts about certificates and buying certificates for domain names etc. most of which the responses go over my head.
       
      Any assistance that could help me address this would be gratefully received.
       
      Boogie.

      I used to run a Win Home Server V1, then an Amahi Home Server and now I have built a Home Server based on Win 10 Pro.
       
      I have got everything running really well except for the VPN for remote access.  For some weird reason, I can connect remotely to my Home Server by VPN and it gives me an IP address on the home network ok, but I can't see, access or ping the Home Server itself - yet I can access every other piece of kit connected to the home network (printer, router, other PCs, etc.) through the VPN by entering their IP address into my browser or by pinging them through the command line Ping command with their IP address.
       
      It's as though, by providing access the the rest of the network, the Home Server has become invisible to itself and so I can't access anything on it.
       
      I have used the built-in Windows VPN on Win 10 Pro, rather than using a third party package.  I have been using Terry Walsh's "How to Build a Windows 10 Pro Home Server" e-book which has been excellent so far, except that on this, it tells you how to set up the VPN and then just says - go ahead and connect to your remote Home Server - but doesn't address any potential problems - like this one.
       
      Is this something anyone has seen before?  Any ideas what the problem could be?

      I have my WHS 2011 client PC database on its own dedicated drive. This drive is now showing errors, and the client pc backups are now not completing. I have a replacement drive and a backup of the client PC database made before the failure. How can I replace the client PC backup drive, restore the client PC database, AND have WHS 2011 continue to use the restored client PC database?
