Blind user needs help, please

Recommended Posts

Hey, all,

I am a blind/visually impaired user. I'm trying to set up a small server on a home network that is running wired and wireless. I am using a NetGear DGN 2200. The laptop I want to set up the server on is wireless and using Windows Vista 64 bit and has Vipre Security which includes AntiVirus and Firewall.

I want to be able to access the server from other computers - laptops and desktops - that are connected via a LAN, two are connected by wire, the other two are wireless.

What do I need to do to my router and my laptop to make this work?

 

I've read through the forum posts, the wiki and the documentation - for Uniform Server and for my Router without anything I can figure out.

Since I'm using a Screen Reader, can you please let me know what the difficulty of doing this is. My wife is sighted, but due to her work schedule isn't able to help immediately.

 

Thanks in advance for any and all help,

Flip

It's not because you are blind. It's because this forum is half-dead. I mean near zero active users.

 

I think you have to open the port 80 and 443 in the windows firewall on the server.

Traxxus,

thanks for your reply. I'll have to see if I can figure out how to open those ports on my firewall and then I'll post back.

 

thanks again,

Flip
