    Can anyone see any issues with me using a Mac Mini as a home server serving out a Filemaker Pro database (and also acting as a shared file and folder repository).

    I have an 'always-on' broadband connection and the data will be mostly small files like Word documents.

    I know nothing about Mac networking I'm afraid!

    We currently have a Mac pro, a PC laptop and a Macbook that will need to access the files.

    Where will the other computers be? Connected to the same router? Also, what OS do you have?

    The others will be connecting via the Internet, and the OS on the Macs is leopard and the PC is Vista Home Premium.
