How do I set Firewall rules on a Windows 2008 Server that only a particular server can establish SSH connection.
I don't know much about setting up an SSH server, but I've been tasked to do so. I am a Jr SysAdmin, and want to learn as much as I can.
1. Install SSH server on Windows Server 2008 R2. I will be working with a developer who will install FreeSSH on this server.
2. My part will be to implement firewall rules on the Windows 2008 Server. That is where I do not have much knowledge as I am still learning. How do I setup firewall rules on this server so that only a particular server (an Unbuntu server) can establish an SSH connection? Can you explain step by step? I know we have to allow port 22. Do we create inbound and outbound rules or just inbound? Please provide detailed steps.
As an example, lets say the IP for the Unbuntu server is 10.1.2.56. Can you instruct me step-by-step in setting up the firewall rules so this server can establish an SSH connection? Thank you.
