    What Services Do I Need?

    Locked

    by rob.jones2 ·

    I was wondering if anyone could help me? I set up a standalone Win2k file server for use by my department of 29 users. It will server as a file server and FTP server. No IIS. What services can I safely shut off? What services SHOULD I shut off for security purposes? Any suggestions??

      Here is my opinion on this. Let these services run:
      Alerter
      COM+
      DTC
      DNS Client
      Event Log
      IPSec
      Logical Disk Manager
      Messenger
      Net Logon
      Network Connections
      NT LM Security
      P&P
      Protected Storage
      RPC
      Removable Storage
      RunAs
      SAM
      Server
      System Event
      Task Scheduler
      TCP/IP NetBIOS
      Telephony
      all WMI services
      Workstation

      Everything else can be shut off safely.

        Oh, and any application-level services too. Your FTP software, for example, probably sets up a service. But that is a given.

      since you are going to run only ftp, you might also try using 3rd party ftp such as serv-u or warftp. IIS ftp is little limited.
