Cannot connect to client computers via <servername>/connect. Site times out.


  • Hello, 

    First I'll start by saying that I'm a beginner with regard to Windows Server. We had our server installed and now I'm trying to connect some computers that aren't in the domain. Since they're on Windows 7 home edition I'm unable to join them from the control panel. I basically have two questions. 

    1) When trying to connect to network computers via <servername>/connect it times out when attempting to connect. When I try it on the server, the page loads just fine. Any suggestions on what this might be?

    2) I have two computers already connected to the domain (Windows 7 Professional) and they appear in AD, however, they're not appearing in the Server Essentials dashboard. I'm trying to get them to appear so that I can setup backups for them. 

    Any help would be much appreciated!
