I am looking to build a freenas server to replace my windows home server. I am looking for some feedback as to what to build. I want it to do everything that my windows home server does. It will mainly be used for data storage and streaming videos and pictures to other devices. I know it should have ECC memory but pcpartpicker does not have any ECC memory I was thinking about putting in 32 GBs of memory in it which would max out the board. Here is what I am looking at from pcpartpicker. Thoughts and suggestions would be nice. Fell free to edit the list just let me know why you edited it if you do. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Mr_Cool59/saved/VMGwrH
hey guys, I have an old tower that I'd like to turn into a file server (both over the network and online). I also wanted to use it as a print server, and to stream music and videos over my network (also possibly over the internet). I wanted to know if freeNAS was up to these jobs? Or should I look into something else. Or, will I have to run a few applications on the tower at once? The tower is an old Pentium 3, 256mb ram, and a 10GB HDD, though I am going to throw more HDD's inside, and possibly connect an external USB drive as well. Oh, and I'll be connecting to this using Windows and Linux machines, and hopefully through my Android as well. Can you guys make any suggestions or where I should begin? Thanks, Valt
