    Home server set-up

    Hi All,

    Picked up one of the threads through google and found the responses to be very informative. Wondered if anyone would be willing to help me out and educate me a little along the way

    I've got three PC's and one laptop at home, brief breakdown is:

    PC - Windows Server 2003
    PC - Windows XP
    PC - Windows Vista
    Laptop - Windows 2000

    There wasnt previously a server and everything went through a safecom router I have with direct access to the internet but I'm wondering if it's possible to set it up a different way. I'm looking to have a USB moden on the server set-up for the internet access and use the router to direct the other PC's through to the server for access to the net? Easy or waste of time?

    Main reason is no matter what port forwading is put in place on the router or the level of security set at I cant get a few applications to run where as with the appropriate settings on the server they run fine. Also handy having the server to learn a few more things to apply to work.

    Any assistance would be most appreciated.

    You might want to check Terms of Service for your ISP. A lot of them prohibit running a server on a non business account.

    Thanks YeOldeStonecat for the prompt reply that guide is great, all done and working a treat.

    I see on one of your screenshots you have teamspeak, quick question if you dont mind. I've read loads of forums etc over the internet about running a teamspeak server and still hitting problems. It runs fine for anyone joining locally on the network but like everyone else on the net hitting problems for people joining external. I have the latest IP each time with it changing, but it always fails to connect.

    Any ideas? Now running it on the 2003 server PC, would anything need changed that would be stopping it being available external there? or still just to do with the port forwarding on my router? (Set it up to allow the port through)
    I've been getting a friend to test the connection, it worked fine when I had the USB modem in but not now I'm back to the router.

    Any thoughts would be most appreciated.

    Which ports do you have open/forwarded on the router for Teamspeak?

    Sorry for not getting back so quick been busy with work.

    Used portforward.com as my guide having not set-up any port forwarding in the past, it advised to set-up:

    Protocol: TCP
    Port: 14534

    Protocol: TCP
    Port: 51234

    Protocol: UDP
    Port: 8767
