I have a windows 2003 enterprise (180 day demo) server.
I'm using it to host game servers (and i lighthttpd webserver).
I'm using Deerpark Visnetic Firewall (no hardware router), NOD32, Spybot S&D, a keylogger and Process Guardian.
I want maximum security.
I've already done some registry hacks to prevent some DDOS attacks and ive read about running services under another account, i've created the account and added access for it to run all the system services (via GPO). My problem is that when the computer is rebooted, none of the services start, even though i put the username, password and gave the account full control of the service.
Aside from this, any other tips on maximizing security?
Im also using WinSSH to secure remote desktop and FTP.
Am using Windows 2003 server with IIS6.0 and SMTP.I tried to send mail using ASP.net C# code through SMTP service.But my mails are getting queued in C:InetpubmailrootQueue.
What could be the problem??I've done many trouble shooting steps but no luck.I changed the Relay settings.Since I am in a LAN connection, i've tested the relay setting using both the 'localhost'and 'MyDomainIP'but everything in vain.
Anyone know a good program to let me put passwords from opening the hard drives via My Computer or especific folders, shortcuts, programs etc?
Lets per say someone got a hold of my Administrator password to have those important confidential files not to be seen a program like this would help. I am also going to set up that the server is only accessed from 2 secure locations just in case.
Does anyone know of any virus protection software that will work with Cpanel. Actually it probably doesn't have to work with Cpanel.. but here is my situation..
I have a lot of people uploading PDF’s and Word docs to our MySQL database, for other people to download. So far I have been downloading the files to my computer first and scanning them, then approving them. it would be nice if I can automate this check some how. I'm wondering of anyone out there does this sort of thing with the dedicated servers they run. Maybe just putting virus software on the server is good enough.
How do I lock down my Windows 2003 server so NO ONE can terminal service in UNLESS they are connected through the PRIVATE network? The server is hosted with Softlayer which allows a private network.
Basically, I want to connect to the SL private network and then terminal service in to get in.
When I connect to the private network, my primary IP/network is STILL my ISP's network. If I goto ipchicken.com, I see my ISP's ip. However, if I do an ipconfig listing, I see the SL private network ip listed as well (it's just not primary). Hopefully, that won't restrict me from terminal servcing in when I lock down the server.
Our customer wants some type of DDOS protection for their e-commerce website.
I'm trying to decide between 20mbps or 100mbps DDOS server protection (proxy shield) Do you think that 20mbs DDOS server protection is worthy? It costs >$1000 and it seems to handle only low attacks...?
They have a limited budget so... I will go for 100mbps (>$2000) protection only if I have to...
With Windows 2003 server, there are comprehensive lists of what you need to do to secure the server before use. For Windows 2008, I wonder is there such a list? Or is it true as what I heard from Microsoft that it is already secured out of the box?
Anyone has any resources on the hardening or preparation of 2008 for server hosting uses?
Has any body had experience with the different solutions available for protection your video/audio stream hosted on windows media server. We are planning on launching Media hosting services and are currently considering Video quota to protect clients streams. If there is any other solution,
For months ive been battling spam and other crappy stuff so i made a jump for a IronPort C10 (yea yea its the bottom of the barrel) but this thing works great for my needs and my users (family and friends).
My old load on my mail server was .8 all the time or higher now shes around .2
This is my first dedicated and I am plugging away at it.I am running windows server 2003 web edition and I have my database, website, and ftp setup and everything is working so far. Now if you go to 22.214.171.124 my site that I'm working on will show up. My question is my domain and site that I am in the process of moving is hosted on a shared server on 1and1. Now I need that domain to point to that ip. Do I need to set up name servers on the server? If so can someone point me in th right direction.
We have two Windows Server 2003 machines as active directory controllers and DNS servers for our in-house operations. For our purposes, let's say the domain name is example.com.
Both servers have DNS, and example.com is stored in Active Directory to allow us to use the benefits this provides. Our issue is probably simple, but I'm not sure how to fix it.
Let's call server one EX1, and server two EX2. These have local IPs of 192.168.1.111 and 192.168.1.112, respectively.
We want example.com to be resolved to an external IP address (for web hosting), let's say 126.96.36.199. The problem is, the two domain controllers keep registering example.com with their internal IP addresses .111 and .112, so the DNS round-robins between 188.8.131.52 and the two internal servers, which aren't web servers.
Is there a way we can get those DNS controllers to stop registering their internal IPs as example.com?
i am starting up a buisness running my own web servers and the licensing system for windows Server 2003 standard is really confusing and i was wondering if someone could give a simple explaination if possible.
