I have a 2011 mac mini server with Lion Server. I've played a little bit with the "Server" application mainly for fun but as I'm the only user of the machine, and am the only person in my household, I haven't had a real pressing need for the features of Lion Server. I own an iPod Touch but don't really see the need/point of remote managing it since it's just the one device that I always use. I also have a MBP laptop that runs Snow Leopard right now but I will probably upgrade it to Lion this summer. I was thinking maybe it would be cool to get a network-based user system up so I can have the same experience on my desktop and laptop, but wonder how effective that would be if I used my laptop for travel purposes? I guess I'm still not totally familiar with what Lion Server can actually do for someone like me. What functionality is there in Lion Server that I might be able to take advantage of? One thing I know I am interested in is the VPN server. Right now I'm a student and my school provides a VPN server that I can use wherever I am, giving me a secure connection whenever I am on travel. I'm supposed to graduate relatively soon, however, and presumably will lose access to this great VPN service. Perhaps I can create my own using Lion Server though? I don't have a website or domain. But maybe in the future I'd like to set one up, again since I will be soon losing my university provided web services. Basically if I want to set up my own VPN I'd need to get myself a domain name? And then I can start setting up some services like the VPN server? What other uses for Lion Server do you guys find useful, particularly if you're in just a single user environment? Or am I really just trying to make a square peg fit in a round hole, and whatever I'm doing now is the best approach to my situation?
