  1. Best answer
    Yes you can, you will need to setup shared folders to allow other devices to access the shared files over your network.
  2. So I can set it up as a standard windows 7 and just make sure all the files and folders I want to access is shared with the network as we do on a lan

    In other words just make all folders public that I want on the server and never switch it off
