I don't have much skill in the networking field so I need
your help. Alright I am trying to set up a home server
using Windows Server 2008 R2. The machine is
already built and it ready to go.
Information about current network set up:
Comcast Modem connected to a DLink router. On
client connected wired to router. Powerline connects
another client in a different room. A Xbox and various
laptops are connected through wireless.
What the server needs to do:
Backup all PCs and Laptops
Act as a file share/media storage
Act as a print server
Also RDP and outside internet access needed.
So now the question:
How do I set this up? What roles do I need? Difference
between DNS and DHCP...Am I using both? What do I
do about security(not looking for new hardware)?
If you have links to tutorials or other help please
