can an OLD PC be a server ?
hello, here is something I have been thinking about for a while but have not been able to figure out completely. ....
... I have a very old and low powered computer in my room, and I have a laptop and will be getting another extra (but very old) laptop soon. ...... The router and modem for our apartment is in the Living Room area but I have an extra router in my room which is connected to the router in the living room(router1) by a cable, and in turn my router(router2) also has cables going out of it to my PC and laptop.
Is there any way I can turn my PC into a server so that every time I save my files on my laptop or PC, I dont have to go into the specific machine but can access them from any machine on my apartment?
--I want to do this mostly for easy file-sharing between my machines as I do not want to lug around a Harddrive and connect and disconnect everytime.
---and would this be a web-server or do I still have to be connected via cable to the second router?
My laptops OS is Vista
PC OS is XP
-thanks for help if anyone knows.
