Microsoft prepares second update for Windows Home Server

By on
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.
