yes you can have a machine the runs a number of services though I would not
use a firewall to share files. A machine that is serving up files should
only server files. Also note that the more you ask a machine to do the more
it will suck at what your asking it to do.
If your machine has enough resources you might want to think about running
it as a VM server.
