I am trying to find a firewall for windows 2003 64 bit edition. So far I have tried Visnetic, which doesn't work, and comodo will not even have a beta version out until May. Anyone know of another that will work on 64 bit windows?
First of all, I am from Australia. Some people might know here dedicated servers cost a lot coz bandwidth is extremely expensive. I am hiring a box to put dedicated game servers on them (Counter Strike Source). I am looking for a Windows Firewall and Anti Virus. I am also wondering what version of Windows 2003 server should I get. Do I need to get real time protection and email scanner? And also, is it wise to download and browse TRUSTED sites on the server?
can anyone recommend firewall software for Windows 2003 Server. I'm aware it has a firewall on board, but this one doesn't allow me to specific access to specific IP address on the server, which are configured on a single adapter.
Also, I've looked into IPsec, which is my backup solution if I cannot find a decent firewall. Unfortunately, IPsec is kind of restrictive and not particularly stateful.
I'm looking for a simple firewall, which is not too expensive. This is only for one simple server.
good software firewall solution that will allow me to block certain IP addresses from all ports.
The problem is that, the only way I have access to the server is via remote desktop. I found when you install almost all software firewall solutions, that it requires a restart. The problem here is that after the restart I probably wont have access to the server via remote desktop because it will be blocked by default by the new software firewall.
What is the solution? How do I install a firewall solution but have access to the machine via remote desktop by default?
Recently, there have been brute force attacks to try and compromise my sa password (MSSQL) and root password (MYSQL).
I would like to block certain ip addresses, but looking in the built in firewall in windows I don't see a way to do this. Is this possible with the built in tools/firewall that comes with windows 2003?
If not, can anybody recommend a simple firewall solution that will allow me to block ip addresses? I don't want something that is bloated and blocks popups, viruses, adware, etc. I just want a solution that will allow me to block ip addresses and prevent brute force attacks.
I've found a dedicated server at a great price and plan to stick with it, my first ( already have 2 vps accounts ). I don't have the money for a hardware firewall. However, I do have a chance to renew a Kerio WinRoute Firewall license from way back.
Does anyone think this would be better than the default windows 2003 firewall?
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?
I'm making a reasonably uninformed comparison here. Since Windows Vista is noted to be more resource intensive and slower than Win XP, are we right in assuming that Windows 2008 is slower than Windows 2003?
For instance, with two boxes with an identical hardware setup but the two different server OSes, will the same application like, say MySQL run slower on the Win 2008 machine?
on the server I have ASP access sites and ASP with SQL server sites.
When I load the sites they are fast, but then after a random period of time, I click a link but the page just sits there saying waiting for host, I can refresh but no difference, then all of a sudden the site will start working again and be fast until the next time.
Does anyone know why the site can be fast then sort of just hang for a while and if so, any suggestions on fixing this would be brilliant.
I am running a server with Windows Enterprise 2003 installed, it has 32GB RAM installed but in control panel I can only see 15.5GB RAM, I understand graphics cards etc will take some of the RAM so I suspect Windows is only seeing 16GB, instead of the installed 32GB, anyone any idea as to why I do not see all 32GB.
i wanted to buy a dedicated server and when i had questions about 2003 web, i talked to hivelocity live support and i think it was dave who told me that Windows 2003 web has a restriction for mysql which was 512 KB. I myself is planning to own a gameserver that uses java and mysql and i know for sure uses much much more space than 512 KB. Is this true that 2003 restricts the size of your DB and when your DB reaches 512 kb, it can no longer be used? Also, is the windows 2008 web licensing fee the same as windows 2003 web?
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 184.108.40.206 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 220.127.116.11. 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 18.104.22.168 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?
