As an administrator, you get early warning of problems on client PCs connected to the server. These messages include alerts about missing or outdated antivirus and antispyware software, disabled firewalls, missing backups, and hard drive problems on the server itself.
Microsoft's OEM release of Windows Home Server includes support for free subdomains at liveserver.com. HP adds support for subdomains that use TZO.com (free for the first year). Either option allows remote access to the home server over the Internet; the TZO options also support email-based notifications.
This uncluttered landing page for remote logins is another HP-only addition. The big buttons provide access to shared photo albums, shared folders, and computers that have remote access enabled. In all cases, access uses Secure HTTP.
