Earlier this month the first hardware offerings preloaded with Microsoft’s Windows Home Server platform started to emerge in the US, and already Microsoft is preparing a second update to the platform.

The update will improve the remote access experience for Windows Home Server users by providing them with a ‘trusted SSL certificate’ for their home servers. That means customers will be able to access their home server from a remote location without any security warnings. It also adds a 'Delete All' button to remove all home computer backups shared on a WHS system and adds some Shared Folder and Server Storage enhancements.

The first update for Windows Home Server was issued in September and fixed a few issues with home network router / firewall and broadband providers’ software. Microsoft will make the second update available on Tuesday November 27 through its Windows Update service.
