Windows 2000 Server
  Posted by  Earl Key  on Monday, January 07, 2002 at 4:33:07 AM (EST)
A small business network (Win2k Server on Fast Ethernet), we just got cable into the building. While I've used other proxy servers, I'm relatively new to 602Pro LAN Suite.

Prior to installing 602Pro, I installed a firewall, ZoneAlarm, with which I am reasonably well familiar. No apparent problems there.

After installing and doing my best to configure 602Pro (note to the folks who make this product, there's an awful lot of extraneous stuff that isn't used for a normal configuration), I have not been able to get WWW (or any other!) connectivity between the 2000 server and any of the workstations.

In fact, after trying to configure 602Pro for the workstations, I lost the connection to the cable for the server! Soooo ... I tried to uninstall 602Pro and go with MS Internet Connection Sharing, which sets up easily enough, but does not give me a connection either. Also uninstalled the firewall AND 602Pro, and am still lacking ANY connectivity to the cable network (cable modem checks good, as does both network cards and cables, to dispense with the obvious).

I'm wondering first, if 602Pro is compatible with Win2K server, and second, if 602Pro overwrites some critical networking files.

Any ideas out there?

I have never felt the need to run ZoneAlarm or any other firewall in conjuntion with LANSuite; the proxy keeps the bad people out, and at least at this point, nobody's hacked a 602 server. I've also never had any problem running LANSuite on Win2k, Pro or Server.

As long as your network is segregated (one network card in the internet server connected to your broadband connection, another network card in the server connected to the other machines on your local network), your internal network is safe. As long as all internet traffic goes through LS, your server is safe.

We've done installs on 95, 98, 2k Pro and 2k Server for small (1 to 5) and larger (25+) sites and honestly never had a -lick- of problem with security or stability. It's pretty cool to see LS respond to some of those "buffer overflow" hack probes with "sorry, we can't help you. go find an IIS installation to pick on..."

First: W2k Server has IIS onboard. This option must not be installed.
IIS use the same ports as 602 even it isn't be configured for use. Remove IIS.
Second: The firewall program is blocking your lan. If you want use a firewall program, then take one who as the option to guard two or more NIC's. Conseal Firewall is so program.
Note: 602 has a good working IP-Fliter but it is only good working for 602. Firewall program extra use is something i advice. Your W2k is open for the rest of the world.
So, get lost of IIS and get your firewall good. mean let lan traffic trough. Visite the site of conseal.
