ATT Uverse Router

5 posts in this topic

It took me a while to figure out how to set up WHS with uverse and decided I would post my steps in case other people had the same trouble. I have the 3800HGV-B Gateway. I could not get the uverse gateway or my d-link (in DMZ behind UG) router to work with upnp. Currently I have the UG setup for DHCP with a switch and extra wifi AP connected to the UG. All computers and server are connected to the switch.

1) Go to the home network tab.

2) Click edit firewall settings next to your servers name (or IP)

3) Click add new user defined application

4) Name it (WHS or something similar)

5) Enter the following TCP ports clicking add definition after each (also set the default TCP protocol timeout)

80 (for website)

443 (for HTTPS)

3389 (for console and RDP)

4125 (for remote access to files)

6) If it does not do so automatically, make sure that you add you new "application" and select "allow individual applications" for your sever.

7) When you return to the home network page, it should say hosting - WHS (or whatever you named your application)

NOTES:

IMPORTANT! Do not panic! You can only access your http://***.homeserver.com from outside you home network. To access you website inside your home network, go to //SERVER (or similar). (I do not know why)

You server may give you a warning that say verifying port forwarding failed; you can ignore this as long as the remote access tab in settings says that your site is accessible from the internet. This was done in PP2

I do not know if Windows Live Custom domains will update automatically if your external IP address changed. Anybody know?

This should work even if you have the sever plugged directly into the gateway, or anyway the UG assigns the server its IP

Did anybody have success with router behind router (I have DIR-615). I tried plugging this WAN port on Dlink into computer port on UG and putting it in DMZ to no avail.

Hope this helps anyone having trouble.

I had just the opposite experience, I am using router behind router setup with UVerse because I HAD to.

I have my Netgear RangeMax router behind my UVerse router, and all home computers and WHS computer is connected to the Netgear router. Only thing connected to my Uverse router is the STB.

Previously, I tried to have my WHS computer connected directly to the UVerse router, however it would only let me do remote access via web, but I could not see the computer in my network (which meant no local share and no local remote desktop), because the UVerse router gives it a public IP, so it no longer has a LAN ip, and thus not considered to be part of the internal network where all the other home computers are. So, I plugged everything into the Netgear router, and in the UVerser router I told it that the Netgear router was the DMZ, so all traffic can be handled by the Netgear router rather than the UVerse router.

I wish I could hook it up directly to the UVerse router, because the wireless signal on the UVerse router is about 2x as strong as the Netgear router. So you might say, "well just use the wireless from the UIverse router instead of the Netgear" - well that would put me in the same situation I was before where the home computers would all be on the UVerse network, and my WHS computer on the internal Netgear network, so local shares and RDP would not work then either

*Sigh*

This has been such a pain, but it is at least functioning now, even though I have really LOW/SLOW internal wireless strength now :(

Would you happen to know how to enable WakeOnLAN through the router? This approach would not work since the server needs to be on in order to have an ip address and the "Magic packet" needs to be sent to all computers in the local area network. I've read several guides for other routers but could not find any way to do it with the 3800HGV-B router.

I have not tried WakeOnLan.

However, if you are trying to do this on your local LAN, I do not see why the router would matter. If you are trying to do this remotely, I would love to know what you are using as it could prove helpful for me.

For this question - your router needs to support this loopback. A lot of the consumer routers don't.

    • So I currently have Windows Server 2012 Essentials (running in a Hyper-V VM) and am thinking about migrating to a Windows 10 server. I have 12 disks or so on the server all configured via Storage spaces. Can I simply connect these disks up to a Windows 10 install and have all the files appear? From what I have read the storage space info is all on the disks and it should work, but has anyone here actually tried it and succeeded. I have 10+ TB of data and the easiest way to get it to the new server would be to just connect the disks up.   Thanks, -Bill
    • Did you try CC cleaner or a disk clean up program? It seems to me that old files merged or not are still existing, do you have external storage that you could export the known good files to while you reformat and clean the 6TB?
    • Hello Is it possible to clone an external HDD containing the server backup to another external HDD? The external HDD doesn't have a drive letter, so how can I clone the drive?  I have two external drives in a Dual Dockingstation (2 drives), which has a button to clone from A to B, but I don't trust that solution too much..
    • I have a whs 2011 server, which has been running fine for years, however since I have updated the client pc's to windows 10 anniversary edition I am constantly getting a services not running error on clients, having checked the services, all are in the correct state, I have tried restarting some of the obvious ones, but with no success. if I select the fix option in the alert list for the error, it clears, but then returns after 20 mins or so. Not sure what to do next to solve this.
    • well it took a great deal of time but the repair made it possible for the cleanup to go pass the 14% strange however is that even though I told it to delete all the bad backups and merge the good ones it did not clear up any of the disk space. And adding all the good merge backup sizes together shows there should be the normal 6Tb free available. So the failed backups are gone the good backups are all merged but the disk space remains at 212 Mb. not sure how to tackle this I am going to look at it again this next weekend to see if I missed something.
