Looking better ^^

I should be posting this on the other account, but whatever. Things are looking much much better as far as Tamotsu's security is concerned. Nobody ever got in, but I was getting a lot of IPs connecting from Asia. I had been just short of ripping my hair out trying to get my hardware firewall working. But after some research I found that Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows 7 can be successfully used on Server 2008 R2; antivirus, check. I have tightened up the rules on SSH/SFTP connections (though if DoS issues ever arise, I will need to re-configure these). I give up on ClearOS as a firewall OS; it WILL NOT WORK. I'm sure it is just a detail I entered wrong in the piles of networking crap, but I couldn't find it. I installed Untangle on the drive instead, and it seems to be able to connect. The reason I gave up on Untangle before is because the actual installation wouldn't export the GUI to the VGA port; but I struggled through the install blind, using a YouTube video as a roadmap and cleaned the drive in Lucid Puppy Linux to avoid having to navigate a partition manager blind. Things are looking good. I just need to install a ton of updates, and swap the CAT5 for CAT6 once it's ready (I don't have enough CAT6 to waste it on testing devices I'm playing with).

Sounds fun. You always hear statistics about how long it takes a PC with no AV/firewall or NAT to get infected once connected to the Internet, but there's no better way to learn firsthand than to run a public-facing server and peek at the connection logs.

I've had Chinese-originating IP addresses knock on my SSH as well.

Update: Expect some down time. I've hit a snag in the networking configuration. :/ Sorry.
