Windows 7: Homegroup and emby server?

Homegroup and emby server?

Hi all,

Been a while since I last logged in,

I have recently wanted to setup a media server on my windows 7 machine as I have backups of old videos and family photos etc on their. For this I have used emby media server and set it up.

I have disabled remote access. As I only want to access the content via Lan or WiFi on Android based devices while at home.
To enable direct share I have had to create a homegroup in Windows 7 and put the network path in the emby media server library to allow direct share.

Question I do have is. How secure is this? Can it be accessed by someone who is not on our local network for example? The router has a wpa wpa2/psk password set.
I have the homegroup share thing setup for local network

Thanks in advance

If you are behind a nat router using IP in the 192.168 range it can't generally be accessed from the internet unless you have forwarded ports
