    It's not designed for that.  However, a simple router can handle that no problem...

  • As said, WHS isn't designed for ICS. If you think about it a little, do you really want all your personal files and important information stored on a machine which is directly connected to the internet?

    First of all I think kariy21 and Colin are right. Also please read the post from Ken Warren and others in Re: Is ICS supported on WHS?
