Security Recommendations for the Web Edition Server

Use the following precautions to help ensure security on the system running the Reflection for Secure IT Server and the Reflection for Secure IT Web Transfer Server:

  • Do not join the server to a Windows domain.
  • Do not run non-essential services on the server that might provide user access, such as Telnet servers, FTP servers, and SQL servers.
  • In the Reflection for Secure IT Server console, on the Web Edition Users pane leave Restrict Web Edition users to file transfer sessions selected. This default setting helps minimize external user access to your system. Also, disable port forwarding for all users. To do this, clear both port forwarding options on the Permissions pane under Tunneling.
  • Configure firewalls that limit access to ports on your servers.
