This does require a windows live id, but it is a dynamic DNS service so even if your router's IP address changes, your subdomain will be updated to point to the new address. (Windows Home Server periodically polls the router for its current IP address and sends that address to the dynamic DNS server on homeserver.com. The server then updates its DNS database with the current IP address of your router.) and Walha....you can get there from anywhere.

You could also use a pay for Dynamic DNS service but why pay for what is freely provided with your WHS.

For detailed how to information related to WHS I highly recommend the book "Microsoft Windows Home Server Unleashed". Great book.
Thanks. I can set all that up, and it makes sense (which is always nice).

That is because it is a separate OS...used to make a desktop into a family server that can do backups/stream/protect...all kinds of stuff...I wish I had connect and could grab it from there

Not quite....WHS is as Zidane said....on a separate PC andall Power Pack 3 does is to enhance the feature set to work a lot closer with Windows 7. You now can get a quick view from Media Centre at your WHS etc.
Have a read of the blog....there is good info there.

You can join Connect....and get yourself a 120 day Evaluation of WHS as well as try the PP3 Beta. It doesn't cost you anything.
The retail version of WHS PP1 is on Technet with keys etc if you have a Technet subscription.

Okay I didn't realize I could get a trial...I will test it out and (more than likely) buy it...I have a free technet account and never bothered to search for it

+1 on the ability to connect remotely. The built in features of WHS makes all that possible without the need for third party assistance. However, if you feel you must, you can get a free dynamic dns from www.dyndns.com; I have one, and it works like a champ. One thing to remember, do not set the dynamic dns settings in your router, use the tool from dyndns. The wizard in WHS will help you set up the remote access. You can even host a website from the WHS. Make use of the various plugins.
