That is one way of doing it.  It will take more work, but rather than using
IPSEC just to filter use it to authenticate your PC and encrypt the traffic.
To do this your PC will need to be in the same domain as the web server or
you will need to use certificates.

Hi list,

I have a server out at a Web host that I access via Terminal Services.
I could also have it so that I could map drives to it and everything
else if I really wanted to.  With this server sitting out there running
TS just waiting for anyone in the world to connect to it and try to
guess my password, I am of course, a little uncomfortable with that.

I was thinking about buying ISA server, but that may be overkill.  But
then I thought that I could use IP security policies to block on
non-port 80 traffic from everywhere but my computer at home.  Is the
IPSec reliable?  Secure?  Do I even understand what IP Sec is?

I know that some people will say "get Zone Alarm" or something like
that.  I don't want to run third party apps...  It's either some
built-in solution or ISA Server.

Thanks a lot,

Ray at home
