I need to run a Windows Vista Instance (Ultimate) on a dedicated Server with a dedicated public IP and the Remote Desktop Protocoll enabled. Vista will server as a "small windows" server to run a program via RemoteDesktop only for authenticated users.
What do I have to do, to secure this Vista Installation (after installing it on the server). Is Windows (after doing the updates and having autoupdates enabled) more or less secure by default? What do I have to tweak to make it secure?
It would be kind if you can list the steps I need to do (for example: disable this service and that service, enable the firewall under XYZ...)
Thank you very much! Tim
