Thank you for bringing this up. I am concerned about exposing the network to external known and unknown users.
- The Apache website can be set up with simple HTTP passwords.
- The Firewall/router only opens access to port 80
- The machine with webserver and other machines gets NAT ip adresses so no direct exposure to the internet
What else is there to do to secure the network? Ofcourse always havin Windows up to date also .. :-)
Is there any way for outsiders to gain access to the Windows file sharing?
