The other two machines will have XP or possibly Vista on them (provided I can convince myself I can trust the new launch). All machines are connected through a router which is connected to my broadband line.
So questions I have. Firstly are there any vulnerabilities I need to be wary of with Server 2003? Are there any holes that need closing? I still need to load a firewall onto it, can anyone suggest a good free one I can load onto it, likewise with Antivirus?
Vista, what do you think? Is it worth loading on now? Thought it may be worthwhile as I am redoing all the machines and I have copies of it (originals of course). Has anyone experienced any major problems with it.
Any other thoughts and suggestions would be good to hear.
Hey I am enjoying and gaining lot of knowledge about security and processed management around 9 windows 2003 servers and 150 XpSP2/2000 Pro and everything will be OK always. And as much I experienced Quick Heal is working great on my Network.
