ATM I like the idea of it but I don't want to take the risk so I'm pretty much backing away from it.
I can view something like Tonido being good for my usage as I can grab my android APKs and music files from my home server from school etc, and I would only want one specific folder to be accessed, and only for my personal usage.
I know nothing is 100% safe and secure but is a setup like that safe and secure enough?
My home server has most ports locked off, I manually open them for the home server itself through my router and enable those applications and ports from within the firewall itself.
SubSonic (MadSonic fork)
Minecraft Bukkit Server for close friends
DynamicDNS (NO-IP ATM) - Made a new account and host name the other day, only my close friends who play on my Minecraft server are aware of which is like 4 people.
Was considering a VPN, not sure that will be a good idea for a home server, I do not wish to host any websites whatsoever, however Plex, SubSonic and McMyAdmin I use for my Bukkit Server sort of have remote web-based setups.
I'm pretty new to the home server scene, please excuse my noobness lol
Any help would be appreciated.
