Remote locations RRS feed

  • Question

  • OK I want to install whs as a file server at my location in Salem along with 2 PC's at that shop. Setting up the connector seems rather easy but I also have to other locations in different cities, 1 in Eugene, and one in Tigard. Can I use the connector disc to install in the PC's in the other cities? I wonder about this since the connector seems to search out and need to see the server on my network. Or if there is another way please let me know. I have a dynamic IP and would like to avoid paying to a static ip if possible. Thanks.

  • Windows Home Server doesn't support use over a WAN; it's designed to work on the local LAN only. It sounds like you need either a server in each location, or a permanent VPN connection between your locations so that they effectively are all on one LAN.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
