Is it legal to share music and movies where you live ?
If not then you are going to get into trouble with the authorities.
Personally I don't object to it, but by being the admin of such a file sharing server, giving a password to people and basically broadcasting that you are doing it by sharing things at school, you are making it very likely that you will get caught.
The school won't like it being accessed from their network, and will hand you over to the law as soon as they find out.
Set up your server, by all means, but don't access it from school, (unless you go through a proxy) and don't tell loads of people.
You guys are definitely right, especially in a school setting. That really wouldn't be a good idea. Maybe I will still set it up though for use for my hall to store files on anyhow, i/e pictures or video.
