Hi! I hope this is the right forum category, or else, please move the thread! Well, I have just built a server-computer out of "old" hardware laying around. My idea is to use this computer as a Torrent-server, a NAS, and possibly a Time Machine server. The server must be able to connect to a PPTP-VPN, and share files to Macs. Now to my problem, which operating system would you guys use? As I read around the net, I guess I will need to use either SMB or AFP. (To share files to a Mac.) Will Windows (XP/7) be able to share files with decent speed to a Mac? (And is it even possible to use the server for TimeMachine storage?) I have tried Ubuntu, which seemed pretty decent. It is however very hard for me to configure it, as I have very little knowledge of Linux. I appreciate your help.
