What kind of network?

by seanferd In reply to networking

What operating systems?
Wired/ wireless?
How many users?
Open to the public?

Best things in general are to run anti virus, do not run as administrator for normal use, disable wireless or enable encryption, change default passwords, use strong passwords.

Keep software and OS patched up to date.

No tresspassing signs and contact the local game warden.

That should at least help with keeping the hikers out. As far as the viruses, look for one of the good anti-virus apps or suites.

'Hikers' was too easy. I leave such cheap, meager fodder for those of you who need the practice.

Thank you

That's a generous gesture as we approach the holiday season.

Think nothing of it.

If you'll excuse me, I'll reascend my pedestal. It's so much easier to observe the lower orders from there without having to actually interact with you.
