    QNAP Appliances

    Do all that already along with email server, web server, ftp server, bittorrent client and a half dozen other things that are all accessible from anywhere I have connectivity.

    NOTE: I am not an employee or agent of QNAP, nor am I receiving anything for this. I am a very happy owner though.
