Protecting Server on a LAN with DSL connection
Posted on 2005-03-17
Windows 2003 LAN, DSL connection, Linksys router, DSL router, Dlink switch. Of course the server has the role of DNS and DHCP and they(server&wks) all have private IP address.
If my server is plugged into one of the switch ports is it secure?
Dan I simply rely on the built in firewall on the Linksys Router?
On a seperate note, how can I restrict internet access to certain workstations in a DSL enviornment? From my research, I can point the internet excluded wks to point to invalid proxy address? Any other suggestions?
Can you point me to a link that explains how to setup a proxy server for the above enviornment?
What type of software firewall do you recommend to protect the server?
