Router won't UPnP for WHS 2011 Remote Web Access


Recommended Posts

LOL, no criticism intended. We just want to be sure you have the best configuration possible. Trust me, no one here is perfect. We have all made these mistakes; that's why we can point them out to others. :D

4125 isn't needed .... despite what people may say.   As for port 80, I have Cox as well. They DEFINITELY block port 80 by default. You can get around this by buying the business package...... And

Yes, WPA2 Personal + AES -> that's the ticket.   And, yes, use https://. It's more secure. Gradually, web sites are migrating to https anyway. Http is just too vulnerable.

My feeling is that, today, everyone should use https everywhere they can.

I'm not sure why you can't connect to your server using RWA by using the IP address — you should be able to.

 

That is what I'm told to believe.

Not perfect.....but I've jumped onto enough unsecured wireless networks to know that about 50% of people don't chneg the credentials.  What level of encryption are you using?  Please don't say WPA.

 

Or TKIP. Ideally, it should be WPA2 with AES.

The Authentication Method is WPA-Auto-Personal and the WPA Encryption Method is AES.  Are you going to yell at me again, lol  :P

WPA is OK, but it's been superseded by WPA2. WPA was a little bit of a kludge; not terrible you understand, it's just that WPA2 cleaned up a number of the rough edges. And, I didn't yell at you, Jmwills did :D

All the choices I have are:

 

  1. Open System
  2. WPA2-Personal
  3. WPA-Open-Personal (default that I have set)
  4. WPA2-Enterprise
  5. WPA-Auto-Enterprise

Choices for Encryption:

 

 

  1. AES
  2. TKIP+AES

 

 

I meant WEP, my bad.

Hey you have brain farts too?  I could yell at you but I won't  :P

 

Have since changed the modem to WPA2 Personal / AES  or wait was that the router...  LOL

Probe port 4125:

 

Port |Status | Protocol and Application

4125 | Stealth | Unknown Protocol for this port

 

Probe of port 443:

 

Port | Status | Protocol and Application

443 | OPEN! | https

 

Probe of port 80:

 

Port | Status | Protocol and Application

80 | Stealth | http

 

What would be the work around since my ISP (cox.net) blocks inbound on port 80?

As for port 80, I have Cox as well. They DEFINITELY block port 80 by default.

You can get around this by buying the business package...... And that's the only way.

 

Otherwise, just remember to always use "https://"

I was told to open 4125 at the beginning of this thread.  So I can close that one too?  If not, I should close it.
