JANUARY 10, 2007 | Microsoft’s upcoming Windows Home Server software will include security features taken from its enterprise-grade Windows Server 2003 software, but will not work as a central distributor for patches to PCs on the home network, a Microsoft executive said Wednesday.
The one comment I have about this wonderful product, I hope to be able to beta test is, instead of being behind the router, why not have it be the firewall with a Home based ISA 2006 Firewall? Have two NIC’s one for the Internet and one for the home LAN. The home LAN NIC gets plugged into a switch.
Another one I thought of is, why not have built in WSUS for Home Server, and update the AU client on the PC if WSUS is not available, go to Microsoft’s servers for updates? Or connect over the net to the HS to check and install updates?
