NT/2000 Web Admin Tools

By Aaron_Wurthmann ·
Okay so I am considering enabling the NT/2000 web admin tools as I am coverting my workstaion over to Linux and I still need to be a NT admin. Are any of you using these tools and if so how secure can you make them? Meaning: Is the session in clear text? Are you using HTTPS? Is there a tool for Exchange over the web? Basially how can lock this baby down so that it isn't as exploitable? Or is it exploitable?
(PLEASE DON'T RELPY WITH.. WHY LINUX OR YOU SHOULD BE RUNNING THE SAME OS AS YOUR CLIENTS, OR USE A VIRTUAL MACHINE INSTEAD OF THE WEB TOOLS)

Well the reason is that I have two workstations, one is dual boot Windows 2000/Windows 98, that is what my clients are runing. The other is going to be Linux. The idea here is that there is only one way to learn an OS through and through.. live in it and don't give yourself any other options.

I use the admin and utilize SSL and I have found that to be secure (non-clear text) There may be a 3rd party web based admin tool for exchange. Hopefully Microsoft will release a web based tool with Exchange 2000. Another option is to install terminal server on your 2000 server in admin mode and administer your servers with terminal server client

it doesn't have to be either or. add a drive and install linux on the other drive.
I found using a boot disk to be the safest approach to booting into Linux. I have had linux corrupt the mbr. using a boot disk avoids the problems of dual boot relilo.

I prefer native tools. A good alternative is the terminal server option mentioned previously. Assuming there is a linux client.

Huh? Who's question are you answering here? Mine? I didn't ask for HOW to run Linux I asked for how administrate NT from Linux. AND that is the reason why I have two workstations, one is dual boot Windows 2000/Windows 98, that is what my clients areruning. The other is going to be Linux. The idea here is that there is only one way to learn an OS through and through.. live in it and don't give yourself any other options.
