Security and ports

Post by STom » Wed, 29 Aug 2001 05:39:16

I have a BizTalk server setup behind a firewall and DMZ. Outside of the DMZ,
I have an application that needs to send an XML document through the
firewall to get to my directory for a file receive function.

The firewall operators will not allow the machine ports necessary to drop
this file to be open for security reasons.

What is the best way to get around this issue?

Do they allow HTTP post to an ASP page?  If so, then you can have the ASP
page write to a local directory.

I was thinking more along the lines of having them drop
the file into a message queue.

I could then use a message queue receive function.

I believe that if they sent it into the message queue,
that would keep people from being able to hack in and
enumerate the machine drives.

I'm not sure whats involved though in writing script code
on one machine to open a queue on another machine. It
sounds just as much as security risk.

1. ports ports and more ports

I have a sbs2000 that is configured in a standard 2 nic setup. I am using
term services, exchange for email, ftp, and vpn. I ran netstat -an and found
there were alot of ports that were listening that make me very nervous.
Could someone help identify what these ports are used for? Here are just a
few tcp ports that came up as active but had no Local or destination ip
assigned ( to them:

This server was configured using internet connection wiz. But It seems like
there are way to many ports open. Which ports can I close???
