      Remote access to Windows Home Server

      I知 planning on getting a server to backup my three PCs and enable remote access to my files on the server. I知 looking at a Tranquil PC SQA-5H running Windows Home Server but haven稚 done anything like this before and not sure how I would set my Sky router (new style dark grey Netgear) up particularly for the remote access side of things. The notes I have from WHS web site say the router should be UPnP certified, whatever that means! I would welcome any tip or advice from network savvy guys out there.

      There is no reason why you should not be able to use a Home Server, all Sky routers support UPnP, so you have nothing to worry about there.
