  • Cannot acces virtual server administration website

    Hello,

    I am having problem opening virtual server administration website. When I click on it, a window pops up that requires authentication, asking for user name and password. I am running XP Pro SP2 with administrator account. I didn't have password set, but since I couldn't log on, I created it, thinking I need to have one, but still no success.

    Can someone tell me what do I need to type as user name and password. I installed Virtual server because I think it can help me in learning windows server, and how to do basic tasks in it. Is this the right tool for learning? I still want to have access to WinXP, sine when I install fresh windows server together with XP (dual boot), I often need to restart to use something in XP which I cannot install in win2003. So I thought having them both at the same time will be easier to handle.

    Thanks,
    Goran

    If you open IE and check TOOLS -> INTERNET OPTIONS -> SECURITY TAB -> CUSTOM LEVEL -> Scroll down to the very botton under the "Logon" label and make sure it's "Automatically logon with current username and password"

    Let us know how you get on

        I tried (Briefly) to get Firefox to work with Virtual Server but never could.

        Why not look at installing VMRCPlus. It's a much better way of managing and controlling VM's:

        I use it instead of IE and can definately recommend it.

            It's not the browser asking for the password it's the application.

            If you want to use Firefox and still use your VSAdmin website, get a Firefox add-in called "IETab". This allows you (a) to open tabs using the IE engine within a Firefox window, and (b) to set certain websites which ALWAYS open with the IE engine. It also has a nice feature where you can "switch" to the other engine while already on a website; handy for checking how a site you're building displays in the two different browsers.

            I should be clear; although you're using Firefox's front end to browse with, the website in an IE Tab is being displayed using Internet Explorer IN FULL. So - if you have proxies etc you must open IE to set it corrently before you can use IE tabs to browse the 'net.
