“A few days ago I mentioned that I would be starting a video series on how to set up your Mac to act as a server. These will all be done using the Mac OS X client (not Mac OS X Server) so it won’t cost any more than an inexpensive Mac mini to be up and going,” Brian Stucki writes for FreeMacBlog.com.
Stucki writes, “Here is the first video in that series. It is titled ‘Initial Setup Of Your Mac Server.’ A few of the points will be obvious to some, but it is important that we start out simple so that we are all on the same page for the future settings. Plus, missing any of these changes may cause some problems with your server later on. This is based on the experience I have setting up hundreds of minis at Macminicolo.net.”
