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
