    Re: opened ports

    67 posts and you still haven't learnt to provide us with sufficient information in your question.

    For all we know at present, your 2003R2 server could be sitting in the middle of the room making moves on a very attractive coffee table.

    Try again with the required info about your present setup. Thank you.

      The windows firewall isn't that safe.
      Personally place a dedicated firewall, like ISA, Check Point, Cicso Pix, Smoothwall, Netscreen, Sonicwall etcetc...

        My apologies to Kinalas but I am going to go slightly but I believe the following question may enhance any information Kinalas is after.

        Marcel, what is your preference for a firewall and where in your list would you include a router that has an SPI "firewall"? Sorry, not an easy question due to the various factors involved like price and ease of configuration.

        Kinalas to check your open port state. Shields Up. Have a look round this site as it is a goldmine of info. (Personal View)

          Well it's quite personal, but it depends on what you need and you're budget.
          How sensative is you're data? How important is easy management/configuration. What is you're average throughput? What have you currently running etc.

          Personally, if you can afford it, i would choose for Check Point. Very secure and fast. Can run on Windows, Secureplatform, Nokia and Sun. Great logging and reporting modules, Supports also Application Layer filtering, what's quite important these days, esspecially you host you're own website for example. Also there is not very much maintenace for Checkpoint (When running on windows, test all you're pactches witch checkpoint!!!) However Checkpoint is quite expensive.

          As an alternative, you can use ISA2004/2006. Works quite the same als Checkpoint, but in my point of view, it's slow. Reporting will be done into an MSDE database (default). Much more maintanace needed then checkpoint, however, it supports Application Layer filtering.

          PIX, i'm not very aware of pix. I've colleague for that
          Afaik it's not very expensive, supports SPI and thats it... Could be nice in front of an ISA server.... But maybe that daviddavis can aswer this.

          Smoothwall. Free, and nice for very small business. It's an open source firewall, and a nice option for at home.

          I've no experience with netgear and sonicwall. However I heard some great stories about netgear.
