    Hi all,
    I've just installed an evaluation copy of Windows Home Server, and it looks great! Slight problem though; When using the connecter (either through the CD or through the shared space) it gives the error:
    Unable to connect to your home server
    The following issues may cause this problem:
    -Your home server is not powered on
    -A firewall on this computer is blocking the connection
    -A proxy server is configured on this computer for the network connection

    -My WHS is powered on
    -I have tried disabling AVG
    -I never have used a proxy, and don't see the need to.

    I have tried this on two computers, both Laptops, Samsungs (one X50, one X60), running Vista Home Premium.
    UPDATE: I can also confirm it didn't work for my XP laptop either (Samsung Q35)
