Hi all, I am trying to set up a home network but I am a bit of a novice in this area and wanted to check with you guys that I am doing this correctly or could be doing this better. In my household there are 3 Macs: 1 Macbook Air (mine), 1 white Macbook (my partner's), and a 2010 iMac for the both of us (though mostly used by me). The iMac is always on and our Brother laser printer is plugged into it as a shared printer. Though I have to wake it up from deep sleep by pressing the on button in order to start printing, print jobs do queue on the iMac so that's not a big problem (since I have to get up to collect the printed materials anyway). Time Machine. I would like to set up a networked Time Machine to do backups for these 3 machines. I have a 2TB Lacie Rugged Triple (USB 3.0 / FW800) on the way which I got a good deal on, which I intend to plug into the iMac using the FW800 port. I understand that the easiest and most reliable way to set this up is using OS X Server for £15 - is this correct?. I also will use it to cache software updates (since all Macs are using El Capitan). Also, can OS X server automatically back up an iPhone? I use an Android but by partner is on iPhone. Shared media drive. I also want to use an exFAT partition in the Lacie drive to serve as storage for a Plex Server and make it shared, so that media can be accessed from all computers but mostly so that it can stream to our Samsung Smart TV. this should work right? is there a better way to do this than Plex? VPN. I am also interested in a couple of other things. Setting up a VPN could be useful to access the files on the drive remotely, and when using unsecured connections. I am just in the process of changing ISPS (from Sky UK to Virgin Media) but I don't think I get a static IP. As far as I understand, I need to get a dynamic DNS service (there are a few free ones, no?), and OS X Server should help me set up the rest, correct? User accounts. This is not that important but I wonder if there is a reliable way to share user accounts on the network? It would be good to get the same user account (ie to access the Documents folder etc) when using the iMac and the MBA, but I assume this needs the device to be connected onto the same network at all times? Is there a good way to do this? It might be that using the iCloud Drive folder as the Documents folder is the best way to do this, but any thoughts? At this point, you probably have a good idea of what sort of user I am. Any other things (for home use) that I could do with OS X Server? Thanks a lot!
