WHS (power pack 3??) by ChaoticRhythm
Hi, please can you confirm that that product is WHS including power pack 3.
I'm not sure if it's on the disk, but the power pack 3 is available for free via Windows Update once installed anyway.
Windows Home Server & IIS 7 by Techgirl1966
I am wanting to host my own website and was interested to know if this version would run IIS7?
No it doesn't unforunately.
Server Numbers? by Joe
I've noticed this says nothing about CAL's (Computer Access Licenses) or how many servers it can be used on.
Other sites, for example Scan, say that it is limited to 1 server and has 10 CAL's.
I'm planning to make on for me, and my friend, so need two different servers and was wondering if this product had a limit.
This product can only be installed on one server.

Good Software by Twomonkey38
I'm not hugely technical but this has been straight forward to set up and get running. The features are easy to use and work as you would expect them to. The server is connected to two printers which were easy to set up and are shared between four p.c.s. Power Pack 1 is useful and I would recommend it's installation. The only drawback is the limited power management options (which can be partly overcome using free add-ins. All in all I think this is good piece of kit!630 of 1166 people rated this review as helpful
