Does your home server respond to there from the plaz from were you are trying to access your site.

1. Telnet IP 80t
2. telnet IP 443
3.Ping IP -t

** Any Firewall or Local AV scannerws in any of the PC source or destination. ?
** If you need to access the system for file transfer then you can use tools like..

PCanywere, TeamViewer 2.x ( Secured ) Etc...

If the above is not the case then you can try this ..

****  DynDns

Plz try these multiple options and you would find them usefull in future if not now..Let me know if you got some sol from my reply...

I got the same result directly on the server when trying to open the URLs..  Have Trend Micro WFBS 5.0 on the server (AV).  Scheduled scan not enabled.  Windows Firewall has ports open and verified.  What does DynDns have to do with this?  I have/use static IPs.  My ISP is SpeakEasy.  Now planning to reinstall/restore which will probably be much quicker and provide better results.  I was hoping there might be a Windows Home Server expert around here.  Thanks for trying.

Is there something missing from the last post?  I see nothing after 'You would get solution here...'  I'm a Granny (of 3) and don't understand your point in the last post.  Maybe you're back referencing the reinstall/restore and then again maybe you're referencing DynDNS.
