I was thinking its not secure but going through my old screenys they all appear to be secure, it use to be accessible w/o having to log on though.
Here is my old WHS page before they gave out the home server.com URLs.

This is similar to what I wanting to setup again.
It'll take some work but probably can be done.

Need to start w/ the Log on window to a button instead.

I think it is under "Setup remote access" where you can change the background of the login webpage, but I don't know what kind of image it will take, I have tried jpg and it didn't work

I now see what you are into :shocked:

I just bugged the UGLY vertical line in the middle of the page leftover from the WHS logon spaces.

Yes yours looks nice and clean, how did you get rid of the lines and how did you position your picture, I didn't see anywhere to do that.

Thanks Daniel :yesnod:

I used the layout tip & found a picture that was light in the middle, then resized it to 800 pix. wide, it ended up 472 pix. high which is close to what they recommend (800x500).

I wonder what would happen if one tried using a 900x600 picture, just get rejected?

My RA to the Main Rig desktop looks a bit like safe mode w/ the black back ground & the desktop icons rearranged.

I shut down the WHS machine so here is what my WHS Vail home page looks like.

One can also change the logo & add links here according to the Customize choices.
