    Anyone heard any information from OEM's that are going to be offering WSSE? I am setting up my server and wanted to Mod the bios for my MB with the correct SLIC 2.1 entries. Just trying to prep for the upcoming release of keys.:smilie1:

    Yeah I know. I was more cuious if any OEM's had released any info as to if they would be offering this. I usually use the same SLIC info and cert as the key that is used in Win7. I know it isn't mandatory but it gives me a (probably false) feeling that I am at least trying to make it a little more difficult for MS to catch on to the "testing" of their activation tech.

    Most likely it will be Dell or HP or maybe Fujitsu

    @ippytattoo,
    Dell have them up for order, but I don't think they ship till the end of the month.
    I haven't seen anything from HP but as Sebus says they must be offering them.

    @ReelFiles,
    This is the third or fourth time i've seen you promoting Chew.
    Have you got shares with them ??? :p

    LOL, no, but I keep seeing people ask what works, and it works for me :)

    Anybody getting repeated Dashboard warning messages that the "Windows Server Network Helper Service" is not running and that the Server restarted even though it didn't? Not sure if this is affecting anything, since I am still rebuilding my RAID10 array, but if it keeps it up I'll switch back to WHS2011.

    I re-armed mine and now it got about 25 days left again for activation :) So I guess I'll just have to patiently wait :)

    I put it on my NAS and it performs quite well so far :)

    I am sure eveyone is going to get tired of all the questions but... Does anyone know how many concurrent remote connections (i.e through personal website) WSSE supports? Is it like WHS and only allows 3 (2 RDP and 1 guest)? I have searched for what seems to be an eternity but all I can find is statements that it is "limited in the number of concurrent connections". When I get back to my house and get it setup I am going to test it and let everyone know but I just have not gotten there yet. I will be able to test it with 5 remote connections. Any info would be welcomed.

    Most likely it will be limited (you sure do not expect M$ to give you unlimited Terminal Services?).
    2 RDP would be what I would expect

    I was able to test connections last night and I was able to connect 5 PC's through the website (**********.remotewebaccess.com) and 2 through the dashboard. Maybe I will be able to get some of my family members to help test and see how many I can get all total. Would be interesting to see how many is possible. I wasn't able to test the streaming of media since I don't have anything on the server yet but that will be sometime before next weekend.


    My server specs are:
    GA_870A-UD3
    Phenom II 1055T
    8GB DDR3-1333
    4x1TB RAID 10

    I was curious if anyone has played around with remote media streaming in this yet. I have tried but I am not having much luck. I assumed it would be the same as WHS 2011 (which I have not tested yet) but when trying to stream music or videos (AVI format) the files do not play. With music it pulls up the player but never plays the song, with the vids I get an error. If anyone has tested this and gotten it to work please let me know if it is a codec that needs to be installed or what I am doing wrong. Thankx.
