How secure are my ports that I've forwarded?
Posted on 2007-07-21
This is a somewhat general question. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I have a few PC's in my network that their remote desktop port number is forwarded to a router. Thus allowing me and/or others with the correct credentials access to them from the outside world. The device we are using for a router is very robust to include a firewall. My question is, how safe is it that I've done the above, meaning, obviously now that port is exposed to the rest of the world but someone would have to have the password, time and ability to gain access and cause havoc, right? Thanks in advance.
