comment Is a wildcard DNS record bad practice?
@ChrisLively you see it a lot because it was MS Best practices for a long time. From when Windows 2000 and AD came out till at least just before 2008R0. It is no longer considered good practice to do this.

@Duncan just to make sure you understand (and i know this is a bit of a tangent) Mainline support (normal people) has ended as of April 2009, Extended support (Corporations with MS Support contracts) doesn't end till April 8, 2014.

comment Securing network: Windows XP 64 bit Professional
You're running an OS that is no longer supported (unless you have a corporate support contract) by Microsoft - No updates security or otherwise. Having file sharing ports open for a server that is sharing files should be the least of your worries.
