sharing online with a server

Specs: Windows server 2008
i'm very new to server operating systems, i am running windows server 2008 X64.

i want to share all my music, videos, programs.... everything... to any computer or smartphone, preferably with a login, that allows read only. so this way it's just me connecting to my server, from any internet connected device...

as of right now i do have my server semi setup, as i'm test running everything before actually using it. i can share locally using the server manager, but i'm not sure what i need to be able to type in a URL and have a login appear and jump right into my shared folders.

sorry for my horrible typing skills.

"be able to type in a URL and have a login appear "

You would need to bring up a web page to do this.

Be warned. Putting your server on the internet without properly protecting it will make it hacked and part of a bot net.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
