Setting up a os x 10.8.1 as a small WEB intranet server on a test / development network. My first WEB os x server setup....
The test network is part of a larger network and is protected by a hardware fire wall.
What is the best way to isolate the test network? What are the best sources of information to configure the WEB server, Apple docs don't appear to have a lot of information.
Is it best to use the hardware firewall and prevent server access to the public internet? (and periodically allow access for software update?).
Main goal is to have a WEB server to store data and develop applications without too many worries about the thing being under constant attack treats.
Is there a way to configure the web server so that it is available on the intranet but not on the internet? There is no DNS on this intranet so access is always by IP (NAT - fixed) or "localhost"
thank you for any suggestions and comments.
