Can't gain access to remote web access

Recommended Posts

This is exactly the problem I was alluding to earlier. It's often the case that you can't connect inside your LAN using the MS URL, but you can almost always connect using the IP. The problem is caused by DNS issues. Your client PC can't connect to the server because it can't resolve the URL to your outside/internet address. There is no single cause of this. It could be that your router doesn't permit looping back from LAN IP to your internet IP. It's not really an issue. You can simply use the IP address. You can also, if you like, add the name and IP of your server to the hosts file of your client PC. You should then be able to connect using the URL. I'm not recommending it, but it's possible.

 

eagle63 makes an excellent point. If you don't give Remote Access rights to the User ID to want to login with, it won't work. What we confirmed is that your server and router are correctly resolving your location.

I have given remote access to a user see screen shot :)

No problems here. This should match yout WAN address:

 

Non-authoritative answer:

Name: commandcenter.homeserver.com

Address: 173.160.132.81

 

Did we ever determine the router type and model. Why not just use the built-in Remote Desktop Connection Manager in Windows?

Well, since we can get to the login window, I expect if we had a valid ID we would also be able to log in (that's not a hint BTW; I'm just saying). I can't see any reason why you would not be able log in remotely right now (ir you were away from your house that is :) ).

 

Why not create an account for a friend ask them to try logging in.

MAD4TECH - if you are willing to give it a try, as Ikon suggests, set up a user for a friend. You might consider setting up one of us (like Ikon) and then send him the user name and password you created using the personal message function on our boards. The message will only go to ikon and then he could try to login into your system. Then we could determine if remote access is actually working. Once he confirms (or not) you can always remove that user name from the system (or change the password) and ikon would no longer have access rights.

MAD4TECH, I tried the credentials you gave me, but I can't log on. Perhaps you forgot to give that ID remote web access?

 

As far as your g/f goes, I'm not sure why she can't get the login page. This may seem silly but, just to be sure, your g/f tried your outside internet address, right, not your server's IP?

 

Have you gotten her to try to ping your URL? I get 173.160.132.81 when I ping commandcenter.homeserver.com.

Your IP Address would have to be the WAN IP Address plus the port number of 443. so to use the IP address, you would use the following:

 

https://173.160.132.81:443

 

But there is no reason to do this, since we know it is resolving in DNS.

When I go to commandcenter.homeserver.com it doesn't use https. It seems to be a port 80 web page.

Unless his g/f has some DNS config issue at her end.
