Admin-console access fails FMS13

Your post

Can't seem to find the combination of settings that will allow the Admin-Console login screen to display from a remote workstation. Filemaker Support won't provide guidance. The documentation that I have found thus far is no help. Can anyone here provide some help?

1st- Windows Server 2008 R2- on a Virtual Machine

2nd- Local Machine is Win 7. 

I know the IP address of the server. I have attempted to open ports 80, 443, 5003, 16000, and 16001. Not sure if I did that right. If anyone could explain in a lot of specific detail how that is done, I'm all ears.

     I go over to my local machine, start up a browser and enter http://IP-address-of-server:16000/admin-console

     Then I wait , and wait only to get "Oops, Chrome could not connect to IP-Addres:16000"

     I am struggling to find anyone who will give me anything more than, "are your ports open?"
