The PPC server is still a mystery to me, Genton. The PPC client works with older Plex servers for sure. The servers can run on Intel Macs, Windows as far back as XP (unsupported) and Linux. I haven't tried the iOS and Android Plex servers since those are not very powerful. Any other servers, i.e., NAS servers, etc., may work, again with older Plex servers.

Sorry I don't have a lot of info on Plex servers, but the forums should have plenty of server setup guides. The media library part entails having your media files named in a certain way and collected within folders to separate them by groups. You can create an account there to get the whole 411 and get Plex-specific help.
