comment Taking ownership of folder does not give full access
Thanks @Evan - I believe my account had full control thanks to its inclusion in the local Administrators group. However, the client has just (in the last few minutes) given my account specific Full Control of the inetpub folder structure, which has given me all the permission I need!

comment Taking ownership of folder does not give full access
Thanks @Alex - I want ownership so I have easy control over the files in there. Despite rigorous testing, live sites always need tweaking for a couple of weeks, and so having permission into the directory is exceedingly useful (I admit not actually "needed", but makes my life easier)! And I think you're right, I was coming to the same conclusion on the inetpub folder

comment Remote Desktop *from* Windows 2008 R2 Server
It's a good question @Chris, and it's simply because it comes already configured on the instance provided by 1and1 when you "reimage" the server. As I said in my question, I am not a network guru (I'm a programmer in a very very small company, and know more about networks that anybody else), and therefore assumed as it was already on the box it needed to be left on the box. Would you consider it "safe" to disable IPSec completely?
