Home Networking, Windows Server 2012 Essentials, Lights Out, the HP N40L, N54L and the Deal with NASA Interns – HT108
Jim (@jcollison) is joined this week by Andrew (@unrealshots) and Christian for Show 108! We were all about Christian (and Gary’s) Home Networking setup to include an in depth look at Windows Server 2012 Essentials, SharePoint and Active Directory! How to do it, how not to and how to get it done with what you have! We also talked about Lights Out, a Windows Server Addin, The HP Microserver N40L and N54L as well as Christian’s Intern experience at NASA. Join us for the show live each Thursday at 8pmC/9E at Listen Mobile: No LIVE show for the next two weeks – Jim is in Germany. Follow all the pics I take at Congrats to the Drobo Winner Jay Shridharani Server 2012 Essentials: I. Overview What makes Server 2012 Essentials different from Server 2011? Why should I pay $300 more for Server 2012 Essentials when WHS 2011 is $50 bucks? Big Features: Why it’s great for home users Why it’s great for geeks II. Let’s Dig In: TeamViewer Screen Sharing Session Microsoft brag features Data Protection, continued. Windows Server 2012 Essentials can perform complete system backups and bare-metal restores of the server itself as well as the client computers connected to the network—now with support for volumes larger than 2 terabytes. New with Windows Server 2012, the Microsoft Online Backup can be used to protect files and folders in a cloud-based storage service that is managed by Microsoft. Windows Server 2012 Essentials also centrally manages and configures the new File History feature of Windows 8 clients, helping users to recover from accidently deleted or overwritten files without requiring administrator assistance. Anywhere Access. Remote Web Access provides a stream-lined, touch-friendly browser experience for accessing applications and data from virtually anywhere they have an Internet connection using almost any device. Windows Server 2012 Essentials also provides an updated Windows Phone app and a new Metro app for Windows 8 clients, allowing users to intuitively connect to, search across, and access files and folders on the server; files are also automatically cached for offline access and synchronized when a connection to the server becomes available. Windows Server 2012 Essentials turns setting up virtual private networking (VPN) into a painless wizard-driven process of just a few clicks, and simplifies the management of VPN access for users. Client computers can leverage a VPN connection to remotely join the Essentials environment without the need to come into the office. Workload Flexibility. Windows Server 2012 Essentials has been designed to allow customers the flexibility to choose which applications and services run on-premises and which run in the cloud. In previous versions, Windows Small Business Server Standard included Exchange Server as a component product, which added expense and complexity for customers who wished to leverage cloud-based messaging and collaboration services. With Windows Server 2012 Essentials, customers can take advantage of the same integrated management experience whether they choose to run an on-premises copy of Exchange Server, subscribe to a hosted Exchange service, or subscribe to Office 365. Extensibility. Windows Server 2012 Essentials builds on the extensibility model of Windows SBS 2011 Essentials, which allows other software vendors to add capabilities and features to the core product, and adds a new set of Web Services APIs. It also maintains compatibility with the existing software development kit (SDK) and Add-Ins created for Windows SBS 2011 Essentials.

Many firmware upgrades also done for various reasons over the years, with mixed success, and tales to tell. ______________________________________________________________________________ Paul Braren, continued… shownotes: forgot to mention how variable routers are when it comes to interruption of service, such as changing port forwarding, on some routers, you have to reboot for that simple change to take effect, which bumps network access for everybody in the house, not acceptable! Also forgot to mention to use Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012 Task Manager to monitor live bandwidth usage, see examples here: how to do WOL for a WiFi only Yoga 13? coming soon to Hardware mentions: More about John Stutsman 2001 vintage D-Link DGL-4500: Cisco-Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Router, also 2001: popular for OpenWrt and Tomato firmware D-Link DIR-655, 2003: Cisco/Linksys E4200 Jan 2011: ASUS RT-N56U ASUS is the Next Big Thing in Wireless New is faster and better than , paving the way for high-performance wireless HD.

Why could that be? upgrades At this point, I think I have too many cascading switches in switches to get wired connections to various areas of the house, will that cause networking problems? don’t really think I can run more cable in walls.

I’m going to have to think through that idea. PM Nathaniel: like a 4 port NIC? PM Renny: Lot more cable to run PM ben: I have used lanspeed and used it to proove a switch was being saturated PM CanadianGeek: well you may have to check the pci slots on the pfscense box to see what it can support.
