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.
I'm browsing these shared folders on the MediaSmart server from a hotel room more than a thousand miles from home. Each folder in this list is protected by individual access restrictions (enforced by NTFS permissions) and is assigned on a per-account basis unless the Guest account is enabled.
