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?
Do you recommend a software firewall when behind a hardware firewall?
All of our servers are behind Cisco ASA 5505 firewalls which we rent from Liquidweb. All are being managed correctly and setup to there optimal levels. With hardware firewalls firmly in place, do you still recommend a software firewall such as APF or IPTables (we're talking linux); in our opinion we see it as an extra administration overhead. If this is however untrue, we will change out thinking.

is it just me or does windows firewall in Win2K3 randomly decide to block SNMP ports?... i have over 30 servers runnng Win2K3 and out of the blue yonder today 3 stopped reporting snmp data ...... the windows firewall was turned off and ICS services were not running but still ports 161 and 162 were being randomly blocked ... so now i add ports 161 & 162 to the FW and it all works but when i disable the services to be free of windows firewall ports 161 and 162 get blocked again and snmp is down [back to square 1]... so simple solution is to leave windows firewall enabled & ports 161/162 enabled rite?

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?
I have set up a Plesk Windows server behind a CISCO PIX 501 firewall and since then am not able to upgrade Plesk to the latest version. It cannot connect to the Plesk Update server. which port do I need to open and whether it will be inbound or outbound?
It looks like a change was made to the firewall settings (I think this was done by .net microsoft patch).I have manually added mysql-nt to the firewall ruleset, and this has allowed MySql to talk to the application. (Wordpress websites are now working)I still get the same error when i try to log in to the control panel.
ERROR: PleskMainDBException MySQL server has gone away
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.
