Hi everyone, forgive me if I ask anything thats been covered elsewhere, ive looked around and havent seen anything specific, and have some rather unique questions/ideas.
1. I am running the plain basic file server, can I upgrade that to the torrent server with out having to do a re-install?
2. this can go a couple of different ways, but here goes my idea and maybe someone can chime in and tell me what i need to do...I would like to be able to access the file server externally. ive already forwarded the ports and set a static IP, but what I want to know, is there any way I can make the server periodically send an email with the external ip address? or some other method for me to know the external ip address with out having to be physically at the house? or anyway to install a remote desktop/remote assistance type application (thinking this would need a GUI to work properly though) for the purpose of obtaining my external ip address?
