If you’re wondering how to setup a file server at home so that you can access your documents & music from anywhere in the house, AuphanOnline has some tips for ya (if you’re using Windows, that is).
"If you live in a home with multiple computer users, then you may find some benefits to having a file server, printer server, or an internet connection sharing (ICS) server. If your occupation consists of working with important computer files then a file server will come in handy. If you want to lock out certain files from the rest of your house hold, then a file server can easily serve this purpose. If you share files between work and home, then having a FTP or VPN (more secure than FTP) file server will allow easy access to those files."
