Hello All, I am learning all I can about networking and I am beginning college next month for studies in just that. In the meantime, I'm trying to learn all I can on my own, as well as apply as much as possible to a hands on experience. Today I configured Windows Server 2008 R2 for Active Directory, DHCP, DNS, and File Services roles within my home network of 3 machines, two devices; successfully too....... What I'm curious about is how to use the server to allow certain shares to be accessed by certain users from outside the home. Is this possible, or even a good idea, while maintaining the required security? Is 2008 R2 Enterprise the OS that should be used? Can it be done via file services? The files would be primarily media. This is providing Time Warner allows port usage on a residential account. Won't know that till I try I suppose. Thanks in advance!!!
