So I've cobbled together some old PC bits together in the garage as a server. I had an unused Windows 8 license that I've used to install Windows 10 with. My plan is to use this to store media files on and play around with plex, probably do my crashplan backups to, and use it in the garage to stream/play music and look up stuff.
I've had a little look around the web but couldn't find much about using Windows 10 in this sort of capacity, I guess it will work fine for my uses. What I'm wanting to know is what software is best to use to control the PC remotely from within my network, ie the PC(s) (also Windows 10) in the house. Can I use the remote desktop Connection built into Windows for this? Does it go via the local network?
Any other handy tips/hints I should look at and try?
