      Whs 2011 remote web access brings up router homepage why?

      Web access was working until recently on all browsers except IE.

      Today my WHS 2011 would not connect to my Microsoft domain - licence problem.

      Being unable to resolve this I set up a new Microsoft domain via Live.

      Obviously the servers remote web access wizard has rerun the plug and play router setup (I do not have a router configuration backup file from previously).

      Now, when I try to log onto the server via the web I get my Sky Homehub 2 router homepage.

      The good news is obviously that the system is largely working but pointing at the wrong webpage. It seems that just a small value neds changing in the router somewhere but have spent several hours to no avail. Have turned remote access off in the interim so no one can access my router.

      Please help/advise. Thanks.

      Mike.

      Re: Whs 2011 remote web access brings up router homepage why?

      Ah! After struggling for hours and even getting the router homepage when remote access was off, which was very worrying, I tried logging on with my phone with wifi off therefore using my phone data and got the server homepage. This is a bit confusing since I used to be able to check the function from home although, obviously, I don't need to access my router from home over the internet! Seem to have read about this before when it was a problem others encountered not me. Seem to recollect it was to do with some loop or another?? Please someone explain!

      Mike.

      I'm no expert, but apparently you need to set something called hairpin NAT or split DNS.
