0Hi all


I can access the Moodle and Sharepoint sites with the internal IP:port number, but can't access them outside my network.  I try using fieldway.homeserver:987 for my sharepoint site and homeserver:45880 for my Moodle site.


I installed WHS 20011 and within in it I installed the Microsoft Webmatrix and create a Moodle site with the port number been assign automative.  Also I installed SharePoint Foundation 2010 onWindows Home Server 2011 from instruction from  http://www.scribd.com/doc/51951290/Installing-SharePoint-Foundation-2010-on-Windows-Home-Server-2011

I did the following:
1. Forward the ports on my Router
2. Created Inbound Rules on the “Windows Firewall with local advanced security on local computer”.
3. “On the Internet Information Services 7”, under the Servername/Sites I add the sites and bindings the correct port.

Anybody got any ideas

Thanks

Those are internal network/computer names that won't be reachable from outside your network.

You need to use one of the following to access the from outside:
- The public ip address of the connection (modem/router), go to http://www.whatsmyip.org/ from inside
- A domain name pointing to your public ip address
- Dynamic dns eg: no-ip, dyndns etc

If you do not have a static ip address from your ISP your public ip address may change everytime your modem/router reconnects.

Dynamic dns is probably easiest to setup quickly for the above reason.

You get that for free if you set up Remote Access? You can get a <something>.homeserver.com address that you can use...
