Windows 2008 - Server Security

Hello Experts,

I have a Windows 2008 server that serves web pages to around 30 users throughout a normal day.

I am looking for a little advice on securing my server. I noticed that there is often attempts to connect to my server using RDC. Is there any software that can block these attempts or maybe limit the RDC to an IP Range?

My experience is very limited when it comes to Windows servers, so any security advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you,


David

Example of how to configure Windows Firewall rule from command line (alternatively access WinFW seetings via Administrative Tools):

>netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=”RDP Test” dir=in action=allow remoteport=3389 enable=yes remoteip=157.60.0.0/16,LocalSubnet profile=domain
