Cannot log into 3949B using Server but can any other PC?

Do I need to set a security setting beyond default in Internet Explorer or something?

It let's me enter username and password but just hangs at "logging in..."

Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials. Set static internal ip (and primary dns) of 10.1.10.2, gw 10.1.10.1

Works fine on client local machines...no Active Directory yet.

Router direct connect to server and tried through switch.

Re: Cannot log into 3949B using Server but can any other PC?

I know it's not wise to use Internet Explorer on the server to browse / access web pages...  so was just using it strictly to access only the router page 10.1.10.1 for setup reasons.

 

Does it sound about right that Internet Explorer on a server defaults to not allow this for security protection?  That is probably why I cannot access the page?  maybe protection since it's .php?

Re: Cannot log into 3949B using Server but can any other PC?

Hello timd1971,

 

You can ONLY log into any Comcast Gateway (CG) but connecting a computer/taptop via an ethernet cable to any of the LanPports 1-4. Then bring up a browswer and enter 10.1.10.1 in the address field, then use username=cusadmin / password=highspeed. This is the ONLY means by which you can log into a CG.

 

Hope this helps you out.

Re: Cannot log into 3949B using Server but can any other PC?

That's what i did. Works on any pc but the server.

 

I'm thinking it's something to do with Internet Explorer security or subnet?  But subnet is 255.255.255.0.  Set server from static ip to dhcp temporarily and still it just says "logging user in..."

 

 

Is it even POSSIBLE to log into 10.1.10.1 from the WIndows Server 2012 R@ Essentials (direct ethernet connection to PORT 1 of router)?  Or does WIndows Server PREVENT this for security reasons or something?  It just will not go any firther than "logging in..." I can enter cusadmin and highspeed on the first screen though...but further than that.  ANy other device can log in I can even do this from a WIFI android phone  browser..but SERVER cannot.
