Im considering building a dedicated server to share files with some buddies and maybe host games like soldier of fortune double helix, cod 4, halo combat evolved etc.. i dont really have any knowledge about doing this so can someone walk me through this?

Trying to do it at home or host it somewhere?

If at home, build a machine, slap windows on it, install your game servers, forward the right ports in your router.

Your going to open your box and your network to plenty of bots and/or attackers for easy picking if you so that.

For simple file sharing, use a SSH server and your friends can use a SSH client to connect to it.
