Windows® Phone 7 Connector for Windows® Home Server 2011
Remotely access Windows Home Server 2011 from Windows Phone 7
Just a few days ago, we saw the release of the much anticipated Windows Phone 7 Connector for Microsoft Windows Home Server 2011. The Windows Phone 7 Connector can easily help you to link-up your Windows Home Server 2011 and Windows Phone 7 devices. To get this app, you have to deploy a server add-in from Microsoft and then search for the app in the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace.
Once downloaded from the Windows Marketplace and installed on a Windows Phone 7 device, you can easily control the functions related with Windows Home Server 2011. These functions include file sharing, streaming media content, managing backup, and resolving server related problems. Earlier, it was not possible for users to identify the problems or updates associated with Windows Home Server 2011. However, with this app, you can constantly get alerts on your Windows Phone.
In addition to this, you would be able to manage all the users’ devices that are connected on the same server. If users are encountering any issues then you can take the charge to fix those problems by establishing a remote connection.
Windows Phone 7 Connector also gives you an advantage to access photos, which are stored on Windows Server. Not just this much, you can also stream and play videos on your Windows Phone 7 device. At times in case your Windows Phone 7 did not play a video file, do not panic. All you have to do is check the format, bit rate, and the resolution, which are supported by your Windows Phone 7 device.
The purpose of this app is to enable Remote Server Management tasks and relay Media Streams, such as Music, Video and Picture shares. This app also allows you to view the devices and users associated with the home server. Apart from this, it supports the count and type of network health alerts, percentage of storage use of your main disk, and server name sending this information.
