    I'm wondering if anyone knows of a good resource for a step by step of hardening windows 2000. Most just skim the surface...
    Disable any service or protocol your not using.

    I'd like to know the minimal services you can run on 2k w/o recieving massive log errors and still provide network services to clients.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    There's an excellent step-by-step at http://grc.com/su-bondage.htm just for Win2K. I'm not sur if Win2K is inbcluded. I'd recommend you get a software firewall that is compatible with Win2K. Maybe free Zone Alarm from http://www.zonelabs.com (not the demo)

    The basic jist of it is Unbinding/Rebinding (Client For Microsoft Networks, Microsoft Family Logon and Client for /netware Networks) from TCP/IP and Dial-up Networking.

    In the Network control panel you'd double click TCP/IP; click the Bindings tab; Uncheck Client For Microsoft Networks, Microsoft Family Logon or Client for Netware Networks); Repeat for Dial-up Adapter. NETBEUI must be added for Win9x.

    Please go to the above mentioned URL to get specifics about Win2K! The above was just a general overview for Win9x and Me.

    Test your ports after unbinding at http://www.grc.com Shields Up site.
