Hello, first time poster here! I wanted to share my experience with Android and WHS. I just got the HTC EVO 4G, and have been putting it through the wringer.
Have you ever wanted to setup a Simple Free SSL VPN Gateway? If you answered yes then Adito is the answer. Adito is an open source VPN based on SSL-Explorer. Because it works over HTTPS you can access your files securely from almost anywhere. I setup Adito on an Ubuntu 8.03 JeOS LAMP appliance.
A while back I used this VPN software on my home computer called “SSL Explorer”, it was easy to install and use and was relatively reliable. Unfortunately SSL Explorer has been discontinued, however the community decided that they would use the source from the last SSL Explorer and fork it creating Adito, the Open-Source SSL VPN ( Adito ). I have been using and testing it on many different platforms since I have found it however it is not the most reliable of software out there, even though it is one of the only free Web VPN Solutions. So far I have encountered the following bugs: Windows Server 2003 (will not run, at all… Period). Windows XP (Service Unreliable sometimes) Linux, tries Linux Mint, Ubuntu Desktop and Server (Service runs, but cannot login using any username and password).
NOTICE: making anything visible outside your network can open security issues, so you are doing this at your own risk. Some apps are more secure than others, but there is nothing ultimately secure. Best is to use the VPN to login back home. To access the HDA itself from outside the network using VPN, check out the OpenVPN ALS application, available to install through the HDA.
OpenVPN Application Layer Software (ALS) , formerly know as Adito, is a web-based SSL VPN server written in Java. It has a browser-based AJAX UI which allows easy access to intranet services. Once installed and configured correctly, you will be able to access all your server files and the HDA (to include applications) using the FREE dynamic DNS provided by Amahi.
Sometimes, Vista and Windows 7 don't resolve the host-only Amahi uses Here's a possible fix that worked for me on Vista/Windows 7 For Windows Vista From the menu, select Control Panel then Network Connections Right click your ethernet card (or similar) and select properties Select Internet Protocol Version 4 and press the properties button Click the "Advanced" button Select the DNS tab Press the "Append these DNS suffixes (in order)" button Add your home server's domain name (eg. home.com) Press the required OKs, apply, close ...

I have 2 brand new laptops that have windows 7. Neither one of them will connect wirelessly to the windows home server. When I'm installing the connector software, it doesn't find the server. I tried using http://server:5500 or 5600 and that didn't work either.
Beginning tomorrow, January 9th, you will be able to download Windows 7 from the Windows 7 page on Microsoft.com. It will be an ISO image that will have to burn to a DVD using something like Roxio or Nero. Let's say you decide to take the plunge.
Subsonic is a free, web-based media streamer, providing ubiquitous access to your music. Use it to share your music with friends, or to listen to your own music while at work. You can stream to multiple players simultaneously, for instance to one player in your kitchen and another in your living room. Subsonic is designed to handle very large music collections (hundreds of gigabytes). Although optimized for MP3 streaming, it works for any audio or video format that can stream over HTTP, for instance AAC and OGG. By using transcoder plug-ins , Subsonic supports on-the-fly conversion and streaming of virtually any audio format, including WMA, FLAC, APE, Musepack, WavPack and Shorten.
A while back, Damien published a great article on How To Install And Setup Jinzora Media Server In Ubuntu . Jinzora is a great and powerful way to stream your music over the internet, but getting it set up can be somewhat complicated. Today, I thought I’d cover some of the other options that are a little easier to set up, and may work on other platforms.

Member Joined: 10/28/2009 As anyone who has read my previous posts knows, I'm a BIG fan of Subsonic for media streaming on WHS. It's much easier to set up, has no glitches, like Twonky, doesn't hog CPU, doesn't create indexes that demand disk activity, and just works great. If that weren't enough of a recommendation, I just set up Subsonic for Android on my EVO 4G!
We give a lot of attention to XBMC here, and with just cause. It's an open-source, cross-platform, highly-customizable media center solution that outperforms just about every commercial option out there. Here's how you can make it even better. If you've played around with any commercial media centers or extenders, you've probably quickly realized how clunky and inelegant the user interface and experience is.
You won't find a better media center than the open-source XBMC , but most people don't have the space or desire to plug a noisy PC into their TV. Instead, I converted a cheap nettop into a standalone XBMC set-top box. Here's how. In the spirit of our Winter Upgrades theme this week, this guide details how to turn a cheapo nettop (think netbook for the desktop) into a killer settop box running XBMC.
We love XBMC media centers for watching movies and TV, but if you like video games, they can do so much more. With a simple plug-in, some configuration, and a USB gamepad, you can play video games straight from your set-top box. As if your media center wasn't cool enough on its own, you can turn it into an all-in-one game console with just a bit of tweaking.
Stream your digital media to all devices in your network, with the DLNA server app or with the AmahiTunes app or any of several others. Stream to iTunes , the iPhone/iPad/iPod, connected TVs, Set-top boxes, Rhythmbox clients and other SW and HW clients.
