I'm working on setting up an ISDN internet connection for a small
stand-alone LAN of Windows for Workgroups and NT based machines. I've
reviewed "Improving Security On Your Unix System" and much of the general
discussion here but haven't seen much pertaining to protection of non-unix
I'm curious as to how important firewall protection is for a non TCP/IP LAN
connected to the internet via NTs routing capabilities and additionally, how
it might be implemented with a minimum of expense and hassle.
For this installation, it's important to be able to support as many of the
current sexy client interfaces (WWW, Gopher, FTP WAIS) as possible for
internal Windows users as well as present a relatively friendly interface to
the outside world.
Any thoughts, ideas or feedback appreciated.
