Hi all,
Remember the Dell PowerEdge T110 server I've been talking about getting at my house? well it's coming with an estimated delivery date of March 7, 2011 with Windows server 2008 R2 foundation installed. My friend from NH is going to be there to help with setup, and he said that I should definitely have some security measures in place, but the real question is, what? It will be a multipurpose server serving as web, mail, database with SQL Express 2008 R2, print server for internal use, file server role will be enabled as well, and finally FTP with the folders available as FTP also available on the LAN through the file server role. I'm having only one because my users are so small of a community at the moment. for all of these multiple roles, how can I set things up as the most secure of configurations. I have no extra routers, no switches or anything else like that on the network. With limited resources as such, what in your opinion is good? Thanks.

So in short, will this server need access from the outside?

Yes for both FTP and HTTP, but not all LAN-available folders will be available by FTP.

Then you will need a firewall to facilitate requests from the outside. I would suggest getting a router to help with that aspect.

We have a router already, but we don't have any additional ones. That's what I meant by that.

Then you need to port forward 21 to the server IP from the outside, and ask your ISP if they allow servers.

I really don't think that verizon cares a darn despite what their print says.
