Transform digital chaos into a well-organized home network

When was the last time you backed up your home computer? If your household is a hodge-podge of unconnected laptops, desktops, and printers, it’s time to bring order and peace of mind by creating your own secure home network with Windows Home Server (WHS) and this comprehensive guide. From protecting your data against hardware failures to organizing all of your family’s digital media onto one central hub, this practical reference covers all the techniques and step-by-step instruction you need to succeed.

  • Choose the out-of-the-box WHS solution or repurpose a spare PC
  • Go wired or wireless, run Ethernet cable, and configure a router
  • Walk through installation and get up to speed on the WHS Console
  • Establish user accounts, set up shared folders, and create a print server
  • Schedule backups for PCs or Macs and recover from crashes
  • Build a media hub and stream to computers, Xboxes, and PlayStations
  • Monitor your home remotely with a webcam

Excerpts of the book are available here, here and here. By the looks of it, there’s a couple of pages featuring your favourite WHS website too.
