    New to ubuntu and thinking of creating a server

    So I am thinking of creating a server. More than likely a media server. Is there a way I could set this up in my house and do the following. I am kinda new to this but am confident I can figure it out.

    So I will be setting this up at my parents house. We have multiple laptops and smartphones.

    1. Could I set it up so one person (me) has control over the server, while everyone else can just access it.
    2. We also have an xbox. Could I set it up so the xbox can access it.
    3. Lastly, I do not live at home, so would I be able to access the server remotely?

    I have little experience with this but I know we have my brothers old laptop laying around. I believe the reason he quit using it was because the screen went out. So I will probably use this to make the server after restoring it.
