A quick scan

by jdclyde In reply to what are steps to secure ...

find a program that will scan your network. Netinfo is one, but there are many out there.

Scan the systems to see what is open, and then compare that to what SHOULD/NEEDS to be open.

Depending on your OS, it will have a built in firewall, or you can use a third party package like ZoneAlarm. Turn the firewall on, run all of your applications that hit the network, allowing them access through your firewall.

Rescan the systems.

Is there something specific you are looking for?

What is the size of your network?
