WHS 2011 Connector issues

Recommended Posts

Pullin my hair out....

 

Cant get connector software to see server.

 

http://homeserver:65510/connect/

or by IP http://192.168.2.7:65510/connect/

connector downloads then the unexpected error message.

 

Used the "find my server" tool same deal except I get the connect to server dialog

with fields for "Name of Server & IP address" still no luck.

 

I Can Ping it

I can see shares on clients

server see's client's

server can ping client's

 

This is a issue on my workstation (Win7 Ultimate) & 3 laptop's running (Win7 Home Premium)........ or seemingly any Win7 pc I try to install connector on for that matter.

 

I have previously succefully installed connector on my mediacenter & a previous iteration of my workstation & both have successfully backed up.

 

I have tried reconfiguring my router several times, dhcp on/off assigned ip's to server & clients.

My PCs are all named with asci characters.

My server & clients are all synced to correct time & zone

I have tried turning off firewall on servers & clients.

I have tried the .Net uninstall & used the clean up tool.

 

No love! Any help would be greatly appreciated:/

Do you by chance have NET.4.0 beta installed? If so, remove and install NET.4.0 RC.

Hi Analog,

 

No Beta on Workstation was a clean install, on one of laptops I yanked all .Net stuff Client & Extended still no luck on that comp. Problems seems to be consistent on all PC's which leads me to believe my problems are group or network related. All my PC are joined to the "home Network".

I can remember having to reset the workgroup on one of my PC's to home & reboot to get it installed initially.

 

Thanks

Are you using HomeGroups? If so, I would ditch that and stick with a normal workgroup environment.

Verify that "Remote Desktop" is enabled on the client.

 

Thanks Analog & jmwills

 

I changed to WorkGroup for both server & client....no luck

 

remote desktop is working & I am able access server with it.....

 

I have tried the Media center Services fix http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2520547

no luck.

 

I have tried every connector solution that I have come across.

 

It's a Mystery wrapped inside of a enigma :/

Wondering if my server's connector software is corrupted....doesnt seem like that could be the issue since it has successfully installed in the past.

Check the date and time and Time zone to see if they match the server.

 

Hey Diehard,

 

Yup Date time & zone all match.
