Feedsource for Windows Home Server Now Available


- Advertisement -

Back in December we talked about Sam Wood’s new Windows Home Server add-in Feedsource, which at the time was in beta. Sam has just been in touch to say its now finished and out there.

What is Feedsource?

Feedsource is a Windows Home Server Add-In that publishes secure Really Simple Syndication (“RSS”) feeds for Shared Folders through the Remote Access web site.

Authorized users access Feedsource RSS feeds from inside or outside the home network to view new and changed files in Shared Folders using any RSS reader that supports authenticated feeds.


  • Authenticated RSS feeds for Shared Folders that show create, delete, rename, and change events for files and directories
  • Granular control to enable or disable RSS feeds for each Shared Folder
  • Automatic integration with the Remote Access web site to view feeds from outside your network with no extra port-forwarding or configuration
  • Simple setup through the Windows Home Server Console
  • Secure authentication and authorization using SSL and existing Windows Home Server access controls
  • RSS 2.0 and Atom support

Getting Started

For information on getting started with Feedsource, see the Feedsource help file in the Windows Home Server Console. Simply navigate to the Feedsource tab in the Windows Home Server Console Settings dialog and click the “Help” button.

You can also check out our original article which contains a step-by-step guide to installing and configuring Feedsource.

The add-in costs $10 (which I think is reasonable) and you can also download a 30 day trial edition.

You can learn more about Feedsource from the Tentacle Software website.

Review: DREDGE

DREDGE is a peaceful and beautiful fishing simulator that's occasionally broken up by eldritch abominations from the deep. Thoroughly enjoyable!
