Firewall, External Box

Jan 30, 2007

I have reach another decision. I never considered an external firewall for my server. It sounds like this would be beneficial to me to protect my interest.

Are all external firewalls the same?

What recommendations do you have for one, like name and where I can get one?

Do You Recommend A Software Firewall When Behind A Hardware Firewall

Dec 17, 2008

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.

Firewall - Kerio Or Windows Firewall

Jun 13, 2008

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?

Host Myself, Or External

Apr 17, 2009

I am an IT manager at a small company. Currently we host an based web application (on an IIS server) that we do most of our business on. It was grown in house and uses our MS SQL server. We are looking at expanding this application within the next few months, and I need it to be "bulletproof", as in almost zero downtime.

The website also references and pulls up scanned documents that we have on a NAS server. Currently it is around 300 gig worth of documents, but expanding around 200 gig a year.

Ultimately, I would like this to be hosted someplace where there is a constant backup of the SQL and website. And someplace I don't have to worry about the hardware, because I am a one man operation and don't have all the needed experience to deal with the web application.

would it be beneficial for me to host the scanned documents onsite, and have a hosted solution reference them back at our HQ? I could put them in a DMZ or something like that.

External Processing

Jun 13, 2008

I have a hosting provider who cannot provide enough ram to run my one time PHP script (gallery2) (and has a automatic background program kill my task)

So I would like to use processing and ram outside of that server.. via one of my other web servers.. (Dual 1 Ghz, 1 gb of ram) the thing is that the servers got plenty of power but not as much space..

So the ideal solution.. would be to utilize it's power while having it access the hard drive/data remotely and processing it remotely... using the internet/ssh to do this..

Does anyone first off know that this is possible?

2ndly what would be some of the commands?

External DNS Service

Apr 13, 2008

We are hosting multiple servers for a site, web, db, media etc and all of them are in the same DC. I am getting worried that incase a server goes down, it would take DNS down along with and will also take emails out.

I was looking to use a good and reliable DNS service which would ensure that we are reliable and emails don't go out incase of an outage.

External Links

Sep 15, 2007

have a few different list of links in my link section for eg one page i give people links to about 20 or so games company where they can buy from. another has a small list of forums people can join eg, another list of places that i shop at.i do not have any reciprocal links with any of them and only included them cos i thought it would be handy for my readers. now can i leave the links or should i take it all off because all these external links would not help in my pr? there seems to be so many conflicting opinions

how many external links can you have in a page before it's bad for you.

idea to just use robots.txt on all these pages to be on the safe side?

Does A External Mysql Use A Lot Of Bandwidth?

Does a external mysql use a lot of bandwidth?

On one of my sites, mysql uses most of the resources of the dedicated server. I'm thinking of putting multiple mysql servers at home and the rest in the data centre. Having mysql servers at home does not require much bandwidth does it? would a dsl line work ok?

Traffic From External Subnets

Mar 19, 2008

I've got a few colocated servers hooked up to a 3COM switch. When I looked at the MRTG for the ports, I noticed that all the ports had a similar inbound traffic graphing. Thinking that something was amiss, I sniffed the port and found that I was seeing a lot of traffic from different subnets (could even see pop3 passwords!).

Now, I contacted the IDC and they said that this was normal, and that that was how their network was configured (I did tell them that other IDCs didn't have this issue). I think something's not right somewhere. And assuming that the IDC won't fix this issue, I don't want to have constant 1Mbps of inbound traffic that I don't even use.

Best Setting For Nameserver External

Apr 7, 2008

I have 1 dedicated where is + +

ns1 and ns2 is setting on namecheap and on WHM

Now must set 6 new server and set nameserver from ns3 to and hostname from s1 to

It's right to set this only under dns as
s1 14400 IN a IP_NEW_SERVER
ns3 14400 IN a IP_NEW_SERVER
ns4 14400 IN a IP_NEW_SERVER

OR we must also add 14400 IN NS 14400 IN NS

OR/AND is better to setting this also into namecheap "nameserver registration"?

Starting Up OS From External Drive...

May 18, 2008

A few months ago i was playing around with ubuntu server and desktop version , i installed it on my external drive.

The external harddrive is Seagate 320 GB , connected via USB 2.0

I tried this about 20 times , every time i could not get it to boot to the harddrive. It would just not show up , i changed the bios settings and everything. It never worked , so i gave up.

Now i want to try again , is there a program i can use to test if my external drive is boot able? I was thinking it was my motherboard causing the problem, but i did set it to boot via USB , i tried every boot device.

External Mail Server

Jun 27, 2007

On a CPanel server, I have one account where mx records are configured to route all the e-mails to external mail server. Everything works great, except when the e-mail is from another account on the same CPanel server, it doesn't reach external mail server, I think it goes to e-mail box on CPanel server.

Is there a way to fix it? (How to send e-mails from the CPanel server to external mail server?)

External Mail Server

Jan 2, 2007

I have a web server and two DB servers. I use a third party DNS solutions. I would like to move mail to a totally separate server.

My question is... How exactly would I do this? I assume that I install something like exim and then use the PHP mail function like normal except configuring it to send via the new servers IP address.

Then I suppose I would create a record for pointing to the new server and then create an mx record to use mail.mydomain when receiving mail from

Server With Multiple External IP Addresses

May 20, 2009

We require a server with 10+ IP addresses (Each one with a separate OS and external IP Address, i.e

This is to be used as an added security level for our employees logging into our system from outside the office. Our system monitors the IP Address and we need to restrict access to certain items depending on the IP. We basically would like to set up multiple VPS on one server.

Can you confirm how this would work?I know we can buy a Windows VPS for around 15, but we need multiple of these (10-20)and figure our own server might be the way forward.
