Securing Network Devices
Posted on 2006-11-15
I am getting quite confused with securing one of the computers on my network, so I will try and explain my set up, 2 of the computers run Vista RC1 and the other one is Win XP.
So here goes
BT HomeHub Router With Wireless turned on using WPA-PSK security.
Win XP Comp - Wired through switch to Router
Win Vista RC1 Comp 2 - Wired through switch to Router
Win Vista RC1 Comp 3 - Connected Wirelessly to router.
When I connect Comp 3 to the wireless router I have to enter a passkey, however my question is, what is stopping people from accessing Comp 3 remotely? I never set up security for that device, so I am concerned their is nothing stopping people from accessing Comp 3 and accessing the system. Is their anything I need to turn on for Comp 3 at all or am I just confused regarding wireless security?
