Best Firewall for Remote Server
Posted on 2005-04-28
My company has a couple of remotely hosted servers, one is Windows 2000 Server. I am in need of a good firewall that can be install and configured through Terminal Services / Remote Desktop. I am also concerned that once I install one that I will be locked out of terminal services with the default settings. I do not have any physical access to the computer, and to get someone to work at the console will cost me.
One of our tech guys tried Norton which really wasn't made for this and it immediately locked out remote access because the user has o click the little popup window to allow access.
I tried Tiny Firewall, but it was completely do it yourself, and I am not a security expert.
I have been considering ISS as a solution, but I am under the impression that it i quite expensive.
Any Suggestions would be appreciated. This is a production server running 8 websites, one full time FTP server, and about 10 ASP and .NET based apps; MySQL and MSSQL; and IMail POP / Webmail.
