To use it just enter the IP address, click on the SSH (secure shell login) button - you can save your settings.
Then click 'Open', you will be presented with a window and login prompt, enter 'root' as the user and the password you created during installation and you will be presented with the Linux command line interface (CLI)
(The first time you login you will be asked to accept the SSH Key, just accept this.)

dBpoweramp is probably the best CD ripper currently available, it will rip MP3 / FLAC / ACC / etc... , download album art and tags, and includes Accuraterip that ensures all your rips are perfect. It's not free (currently $36 for the Reference edition) but is worth it.
You can download and install dBpoweramp from here: http://www.dbpoweramp.com/
To easily change the embedded tags within FLAC and MP3 music files, I use this tool that scans your music directory and allows you to modify the tags of either single of multiple files.
You can download and install MP3tag from here: http://www.mp3tag.de/en/
I use this tool to simply back up my personnel files, photos and music between my PC and the network server. You can define 'profiles' with specific rule to ensure only the new and modified files are transferred.
You can download and install SyncBack from here: http://www.2brightsparks.com/syncback/
(Make sure you get the freeware one rather than the proprietary SyncBack SE)
