I'm hosting a 2000 server for a friend on my network and I need some simple recommendations on security.

The server is being hosted on the optional port of a sonicwalll tz170.  The only way they are accessing it is via RDP, which is the only port allowed through the firewall.  I have disabled the guest account and turned off file and print sharing.

Any other recommendations?

Thanks,
Matt

There is a setting that would force a certain level of encryption on RDP/Terminal Services, I would probably bump it up.
MS has a link at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306561/EN-US/ I have also seen the setting in Group Policy, but can't confirm it's exact location where I am now.

I would also set the subnet broadcast settings so it doesn't try to talk to the other computers on your network, just the router. Is your firewall limiting connections from just the outside, or is it limiting connections from the rest of your network to this guest machine as well?
