I've installed Team Foundation Server 2010 on my WHS (in 'Basic' configuration, no Sharepoint or Server Proxy or Build Automation) and have enabled port forwarding on my router. If I use http:// localhost:8080/tfs/web or http:// foobar:8080/tfs/web I can log in using username.

However, attempting to log in via http:// will not let me log in. After a couple of attempts with different variations on the username, I get a 403 error, with access denied. I've tried\username, foobar\username and just username, but to no avail.

Any ideas? I've checked that there are no IP restrictions within ISS.

"It will not let me log in" - in what way? Are you getting an error page before or after you try to log in? – Richard Oct 28 '10 at 8:19
You're right, I should have been clearer (I'll update the question). I get 403 after trying to login a couple of times, as though it's an incorrect username or password - but if I use the internal URLs, I can log in with username. – StormPooper Oct 28 '10 at 12:47

I believe that you need to configure alternate access mappings in Sharepoint. Doing this should be relatively the same in all editions of Sharepoint.

Thanks, but the server does not have Sharepoint installed, only TFS basic. – StormPooper Oct 28 '10 at 12:48

For anyone who was interested, I hadn't configured my user to use Web Access specifically, as I was able to log in with the Administrator account I had installed TFS with.
