As discussed in the previous two news items here and here. Tom Ziegmann from the Windows Home Server Team has posted a resolution that may help those of you still having issues getting your PCs connected to the server via the connector/console software.
The client connector uses a web service that resides on the Windows Home Server. If you are having issues with client join, this could be a problem with the way that your Internet Explorer proxy settings are configured. Most home environments do not use proxy servers, so the best method to resolve the client join issue, is to disable proxies in Internet Explorer. To do this, follow the steps outlined below.
- Open Internet Explorer
- Click on Tools -> Internet Options
- Click on the Connection Tab
- Click on the LAN Settings button
- Uncheck the box labelled “Automatically detect proxy settings”
- Click OK twice
- Close IE
Attempt to reinstall connector.
