[ubuntu] Building an Ubuntu based home file server

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi everyone. I've got an issue: as the thread name suggests, I want to build a home file server running Ubuntu desktop. The server will have my internet router connected to it, and it will share internet with my main workstation via LAN. I want to be able to control files on the server via my main workstation (it runs on windows 7, I'm a gamer) with remote desktop (I believe in Ubuntu that is VNC), and also via my notebook (also windows 7) via wifi (router has wifi). Can you please explain what software I should use to make this dream a reality, and how to also make this little network secu (Hardware)
