firewall win2k3

Discussion in 'Server Security' started by Christopher Brandsdal, Aug 22, 2004.

  1. Hi!

    I have just set up 2 servers. one Unix and one win2k3.

    The windows server is a 2003 web edition.

    I have set it up with Norton Antivirus, but I think I need to set up a
    firewall for it.
    This server is going to be used as a webserver for all my customers..
    probobly 100-200 domains.

    Any recomandations on firewall?? since it is a web edition server it does
    not have the built-in firewall...
    I want this server to be secure!

    This server runs iis, dns and ftp

  2. Sounds like you have a lot of customers you want to keep happy. I suggest a real
    hardware firewall such as something from Netscreen or SonicWall. They have entry
    level devices that allow ten IP address outbound from your network or you can spend
    more for unlimited. They start at around $400. In the mean time Sygate Pro is a
    decent software firewall. --- Steve

  3. It's highly recommended you consider filtering outbound connections as well
    as inbound. It may be wise to hire a professional and/or read a book on the
    subject such as Building Internet Firewalls if you have no firewall
    experience. [On the other hand, professionals sometimes do shoddy work
    too.]

    For a hardware firewall, I use SonicWall DMZ, been going strong for like 5
    years.

    If you must go with a software solution, try ISS Black Ice Server
