If you're connected to Virtual Server over a Terminal Services or Remote Desktop connection, you'll get a "Page cannot be displayed" error if you try to launch the Administration Website from the shortcut on the Start menu. Instead, you can provide this URL in Internet Explorer: http://server_IP_address:VS_port, where server_IP_address is the IP address of the computer running Virtual Server and VS_port is the port number assigned to Virtual Server, 1024 by default.

Alternatively, you can remote into the computer running Virtual Server and access the Administration Website in one step. To do this, click Start > Run, and then type: mstsc /v:server_IP_address /console.
