November 23rd, 2010, 02:24 PM
hows it going everyone. What i want to be able to do is set up a personal server. I want to put music, pictures, videos, documents on to my p4 and be able to access it on my home network and when im away at the campus or visiting family out of state.
I have the p4 loaded with ubuntu and all my files i want are on it. I can view and transfer if files are "shared" in the network folder in the places menu. its kinda slow though. any suggestiongs on how i could speed this up and how i could connect from work or school to pull a document i saved or even listen to a song? thanks in advance.

As far as sharing beyond your local network, set up port forwarding in your router to point your external IP to that computer. You'll probably need some sort of dynamic DNS service to keep track of your IP.
