I've taken on an old client of mine from 15 years ago back on board. They have extremely good luck, thus have never really had the lessons of security failures teaching them to invest in things like firewalls, antivirus, etc. I am building a new server to replace their 6 year old P3 system and they have chosen to use Windows 2000 server again.
I've not worked in this sort of environment before ( normally one would have a hardware firewall, AV, Webroot or something similar, IDS perhaps... ) and had a couple of questions :
1: How can I tell if W2K Server is currently being used as a firewall? ( I recall this was possible but have never
tried it out )
2: How can I tell if W2K Server is currently being used as a proxy?
3: Wasn't there some form of web accelleration capability in W2K Server?
I'm fairly certain these folks will not wish to invest in any hardware or software for the time being. I've advised them of the risks of doing so but still wish to do what I can to 'secure' them with W2K Server. ( I'll be checking the ADSL router to see if it has any firewall capabilities )
Thank you for any insights.
