    na?ve questions: Web server security


    by mattsdad ·


    Well here come some na?ve questions about Web server security and data transfer.

    I am considering making available a private Web page on my intranet so that remote users can access the most widely used data on my servers. The would largely be editing and reviewing documents.

    This network is a workgroup with W2K servers with XPPro and W2KPro workstations with 15 hosts.

    I would like to fully implement this page on an XPPro machine that is currently a ?spare?.

    There will be no domain name. Users will have to know the exact Ip address.

    I have implemented a non standard port which users will also have to know.

    I have a Watchguard Fire wall that?s is set up to forward HTTP requests on the non standard port to the XP machine

    Also I want to use Windows Integrated Authentication. Users would have to have an account on the specific machine.

    No more than 5 users would be accessing this page at a time.

    What do you think of this setup in terms of Security: both of the Web Server itself and the data being intercepted, not mention the Network Itself?

    Any comments or suggestion? My budgest is $0

    Thanks in advance!!
