  • Finish the initial configuration from a home computer. This is the recommended method. When you use this option, you connect to the server from a home computer. For instructions, see To configure your server from a home computer.

To configure your server at the server

  1. Follow the instructions in the wizard to complete the initial configuration of Windows Home Server 2011.

  2. Connect each of your home computers to the server by installing the Windows Home Server 2011 Connector Software. Windows Home Server 2011 should be remotely administered.
