Not sure if this is the right place for this question.
I have a friend that owns a small business running 3 local machines, that are connected to the internet, and a server that each local machine connects to.
He has recently bought a newer server, and by server I mean a Windows Vista box. He wants to use this purely to store data that the 3 local machines can access, kind of like a glorified external hard drive.
Im suggesting to fore-go the server option and simply setup sharing on the 'server' box. Interested in hearing any suggestions as to whether the server idea is preferable?
