Configuring my Windows VPS

Recommended Posts

whitebread    54

I have a Windows Server 2008 RS (64-bit) virtual private server. Can you guys give me some suggestions on how I can lock it down? I want it so the only things that can be accessed remotely are Remote Desktop, HTTP/HTTPS traffic, and FTP traffic.

Well configure your firewall that way then.. What host are you with, I would assume they have a firewall configuration to your vps. Or just use the 2k8 built in firewall.

RDP is 3389, you know there is bug currently, with demo code in the wild to exploit this.. So patch it right away. I would lock down the firewall to only allow access from YOUR IP(s) btw as well.

HTTP/HTTPS is ports 80/443 and ftp is 21

There you go these are the only ports that should be open in the firewall..
