I am trying to setup Anywhere Access on Server 2012 R2 Essentials and get the message “Anywhere Access to your Server is blocked” which seems to be a fairly common problem. UPnP does not seem to work when implemented on the Surf Solo Mk3, so I’ve tried opening up Ports 80 and 443 by creating “Services” in Advanced>Port Forwarding that directs TCP to the Server’s LAN IP address. This seems pretty straightforward. However, when I go to Status>UPnP/NAT-PMP it shows no ports as forwarded. Furthermore going to CanYouSeeMe.org and checking access to both ports results in a “Connection Refused” response. Needless to say trying to access XXX.remotewebaccess.com does not work and just times out.
I have a feeling I’m just doing something wrong in setting up the router. Any suggestions?
