Mine was leary of the hobbie until she was able watch her soaps from the web page while at work. Then it benifitted her.

 

Watching soaps at work? Hmmm, wonder what her employer thinks of that?

You may be having a port conflict on your router. Try forwarding port 8080 on you WAN port to port 80 on your WHS, and port 80443 on your WAN port to port 443 on your WHS.

 

From outside your LAN, you would type http://<myserver>.homeserver.com:8080 and https://<myserver>.homeserver.com:80443. This will ensure you're not using any ports that your router may be using for itself.

 

could you share the details with how to do?

I can't really get too specific because the way this is done is different on every router.

 

In general, what you look for on the router is something called Port Forwarding, or something similar. In that area there should be a way to specify the port number for the Source Port. This is the port number you would use from outside your LAN. You would set that to something like 8080. Then there should be another place for the Destination Port. In there you would enter 80. Finally, you specify the IP of the computer you want the packets forwarded to.

 

What happens is the router simply looks for port 8080 on your WAN port. When it finds a packet with that port number it modifies the port number in the packet to the one you want for the destination computer, and then sends the packet to the IP you specified in Port Forwarding.

Think of a house with different keys for every door.  If you match the key to the door, you can get in and be directed to where you need to go.
