This exercise demonstrates how to configure IP filtering on a Windows 2000 Server using the Local Security Settings MMC console. Windows 2000 has built-in security controls that can help restrict certain traffic from entering the server or the network segment it is servicing. This should not be used as an alternative to hardware firewalls, but the idea is similar.
The following assumptions are made in this exercise: The server is a member or a standalone box, there is a DMZ segment, the server was built to host the company Web site, and HTTP is not being used.
