since 4 weeks my server WHS 2001 is no longer updating the IP on the GoDaddy domain.
The wizard set up and the repair function state that the account or the password are incorrect ( indeed they are the right one and I can access my account on GoDaddy).
I tried to reset even the registry but no result so far and checked online forum but no workaround succeded
Thanks or any ideas or suggestion
I setup my WHS system in 2013 as an upgrade from an old SharePoint server. The system was used for backups and media archival. All my usage was from my home networked attached computers and everything worked as expected. I am now trying to connect to this network remotely. Specifically to remotely connect to 2 computers attached to the WHS.
I followed several postings and the basic setup seems ok. On remotely connecting to the WHS site I get a certification error: "Security certificate presented to this website was issued for a different Websites address". On remote access, I can ignore this error and sign in to my WHS. After sign in on my HomePage I see on the local computers and the WHS server with all the correct status on each. When trying to connect to any computer I get a get an error, " Remote Gateway Server address and the certificate subject name do not match".
Any ideas on how to fix this and what I did incorrectly in the setup?
Note my configuration will be primarily:
Remote computers running Windows 8.1
Local computers running Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate
I also tried connecting between computers when all computers are on the local network. The windows 8 machine will allow not me to login. I get the same mismatch address error.
I appear to have stepped into it once again. For a reason that doesn't deserve explaining, I disabled the "Administrator" account on my WHS box (using cmd "net user Administrator \active:no"). Now, I can't get into the server with Remote Desktop Connection (when I try to connect to the server, it won't let me log into the administrator account (well, duh, that's what I disabled) and, because the guest account is disabled, there appears to be NO way to get into the server. Jeez, the Home Server Dashboard doesn't even get into the server. Help! Does anybody know how I can re-enable the administrator account? Obviously, if I could get into the administrator account, I could run the elevated command "net user administrator \active:yes," but unfortunately, I can't get into the account to do that. Sometimes I amaze even myself! Ed
I have an acer H340 upgraded to win 2011. I got a better router and lost the ability to use remote access. The router is a Hawking Tech HD45R.
I am not what I would call network saavy but have computer skills so I did a lot of googling and tried a lot of settings to no avail. If anyone has experience with these routers, I could use some assistance.
Thanks in advance,
Having a strange error. I set up my brother as a user so he can access some things for our business. His login works fine on any of my machines, on his iPad or on his laptop using Firefox or Chrome. However, using IE (he has 11 with the most recent update) on the laptop, he can log in, he briefly sees the screen where you see the folders, PC's, etc., then it flashes to a 404 error.
I can't replicate this on any other machine. I have the exact same version of IE running on two machines (I checked the extended version number) and it doesn't happen. I had him clear everything out of IE (using the delete history screen), didn't fix anything.
I googled the probem and found this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2885314 but I already have the update it talks about installed.
Anyone else ever had this issue? It wouldn't be that big of a problem except that we are using the RemoteApp for Quickbooks and unfortunately that requires IE.
