To make setup and administration easier, HP's developers added a custom tab to the standard Home Server console. The text at the bottom of this dialog box appears only during initial setup and walks you through the process of configuring the most common server options.
This dialog box, which appears when you first add a user account, wasn't in the original release of Windows Home Server but was added in a September update. The idea (reportedly inspired by feedback to Microsoft from HP) was to give users more advice on this potentially confusing topic
The single most complicated setup task for Home Server is to enable outside access through a broadband router. If the router supports UPnP, the process should be automatic; on this older non-UPnP router I had to perform some manual configuration.
