I work at a biological research station with a total of about 20 computers. Currently the town I am in has no quality internet offerings (only dial-up), so we have installed a wifi antenna in a house in another town some 10 miles across a bay, installed a 600kbps adsl line there (that's the best they have to offer) and another antenna here that is connected to a hub and sharing the conection with all the PC's. A technichian that came the other day recommended we put in a server but couldn't seem to explain what there is to gain from having one. Our website and email are both run through university servers on the main campus. There is a very small amount of file sharing between the PC's, probably on the order of a few MB/day that up to now have been easily done through windows network or carrying the data around in a USB drive. So my question is what would the benefits be of installing server?
