IMac Mini As A Home Server

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

I have an iMac Mini lying in my closet that I don't use often so I got an Idea.

Can I use iMac mini to be either a home server?

The only advantage I know is that it consumes less than conventional desktops.

What are the things I should know before I can set it up as a Home Server?

IMac Mini As A Home Server


Hi dude,

Obviously you can use your existing iMac mini to create a home server. By put on some configuration to it you can able to make a home file server with it and able to access it files wirelessly from anywhere of your wireless network. So why so late? Just follow the instruction-

For doing this perfectly, you have need two things specially.

1. A  Mac running OS X

2. An Ethernet Jack or Airport card (original Ethernet card was built in 1999, but iMac is more older than that).

3. Now you need a cable to connect with your spare iMac

Now you got to go.

Hope you will enjoy your new iMac home file server.
