I have set up my machine up as a webserver and was wondering how I could make it secure so that I am not open to attack. I am running of a network through a rooter, but am concerned about security, hope someone can help.

Thanks

It depends on what kind of webserver - who makes it and what version?

Also, you're going to have to bump up the points on this question to get a decent answer - it's more complicated than "less than easy".

Okay, for 20 points, I don't mind pointing you to an article which specifically answers your question :-)  (this is a non-trivial question that you ask... no matter what, you will have to do some reading.)

If it's IIS 5.0, you can install the free edition of SecureIIS.
