  • Hi,
    using any Windows components on Windows Home Server, which are not already installed or enabled, is not only unsupported and may eventually break Windows Home Server, but in many cases also violates against the printed EULA, which should be part of your package.
    This being said, using the normal Remote Desktop client works fine (you only need to forward port 3389 in the router and change the scope of Windows Firewall to allow connections from all networks), but the above statement includes this feature as well and is a violation as soon as it is not used solely for Administrative purposes. (Usually all interaction with WHS should happen via Console or the supplied Web interface.)

  • I would recommend against the installation of the FTP component of IIS. FTP is, by definition, an insecure protocol: user id and password are passed through unencrypted telnet. In addition, it is likely to be at least a technical violation of the EULA.

    If I might ask, what is it that you're trying to do that you can't do through the built-in remote access web site?

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
