Use With Dynamic IP?


I would like to purchase your application so I can access a Windows 2016 server I have installed in my home. I currently only have a dynamic IP address there. Will it be possible to use your product?

Windows Server Essentials works just fine with a dynamic IP address as long as you have its Anywhere Access/Remote Web Access feature configured correctly. As for our products, they use the server’s built-in Remote Web Access functionality in order to remotely connect to your server, and so as long as Remote Web Access is properly configured on your server, then they will also work just fine with a dynamic IP address.

Your best bet here is to configure Remote Web Access on your server using the Microsoft personalized domain name offering seeing as the domain name, the trusted SSL certificate, and the dynamic DNS functionality (which keeps your Internet domain name properly synced up to your server’s dynamic IP address) are then automatically setup and managed for you completely free of charge and hassle.
