Cannot find server WHS 2011 with connector

Recommended Posts

Hello all!!

 

 

I have a win7 ultimate.

I am experiencing a similar issue. However, I can install the connector software, and open it initially. Once I restart the machine, it will never connect again.

 

I have also tried....

 

 

Netbios is in place on both server and PC

I can see the server on my network,

I can browse to the Shares on my home server

I can RDP into my homeserver

I can ping its IP address from my PC

I can ping my PC from my homeserver (whilst RDP'd in)

Tried Find My Server (It was a shot)

Tried disabling Firewall

Tried Disabling MS Security Essentials

 

Any Suggestions??

Make sure you .Net Software is current....WHS looks for a specific version,which is 3.5 I think. You must have the correct version (v 4.0 is not 3.5)

as jmwills said, .NET is very important to proper functioning of the connector. You may even have to uninstall all versions of .NET and reinstall 3.5 only.

Yes, most of this found this out with Windows 8. 4.0 came with the first round of Windows updates and we had to go back and install 3.5. Both can co-exist.
