    im trying to get remote potato running on my server but its giving me hell. ive got the server installed, configured and running. ive got ports 9080-9083 forwarded to my servers static IP in my router. ive got inbound and outbound exceptions for all 4 ports for the program in windows firewall. every time i try to connect to either my servers local IP or my DNS (which is functioning), the connection fails with no reason given. ive tried with chrome and IE. ive tried from my main box and from the server itself.

    i probed the ports in question using "shields up" (ive never used this service before so i dont know how reliable it is), and it says they are all still stealthed. "shields up" correctly reports the ports i have open for VNC as open, but it also reports the port i have open for vent as stealthed and vent works...so this may be meaningless.

    this is driving me mad. ive spent the last two evenings trying to get this working and i just want to punch things....help me!

    anyone have any ideas? im still stuck not being able to get this to work.

    failing that, what other free programs allow remote access to files via a browser?

    Have you tried temporarily disabling the Windows firewall?

    badders, yes i tried disabling windows firewall. i even tried placing the server in DMZ thinking it was a port forwarding problem. neither helped.

    flibblebot, i looked into mollify, but i dont have a full on web server running on my home server ATM. this machine is running on an atom CPU and is also my HTPC so needs to be able to stream 1080p clearly. im trying not to load it down too much. although i dont have any experience with web servers so i dont know how much load it would actually create.

    after more messing around tonight ive discovered the remote potato server isnt initiating correctly even though it appears to be running normally. i made a post on the RP forums to try and get some specialized help there, but if anyone here is good at debugging, heres the error log:

    windows 8 release preview evaluation copy build 8400

    I am having the same issue with running remote potato 1.1.1 tech preview on windows 8 RP. I would have thought by now someone would know a work around to media center guide issue, is there anyone with an answer?

    here is my debug log snippet with the issue:

    Could not load file or assembly 'mcstoredb, Version=6.1.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format..
