Hi

I'm looking into a virtual server to host about 30 websites
The host doesn't offer a firewall, so i'm stuck with windows firewall

My questions is, can it be locked down enough to protect the public facing internet, or am i asking for trouble?

My other server sit behind a sonicwall 2040 pro which is great, however, i need to know if win 2003 server firewall can be locked down enough.
