  • How to Secure a Windows 2003 server used for Windows media and FTP Services

    I am looking for a good way to secure a Windows 2003 Server. The Server is not behind any kind of firewall and is running Windows Media Services and FTP. The machine is physically attached to the rest of our office network and my concern it that the machine could easily be hacked and access to the rest of our network easily granted.

    Any comments or sugestions would be great?

    I would immediately unplug the network cable and then start the builtin firewall at least.

      agree with biggles77!!!
      unplug it asap, and install a firewall first.

        Well let me add to my previous post. After some testing using the Sheilds Up scanner on www.grc.com from the machine the test come back as Stealth but im still not totally satisfied the machine is secure. The installed Firewall/VPN device is a CyberGuard SG series unit.
