Default Re: Firewall

what do you mean by fine tuning?

If this is a public-facing host, I'd consider using a physical firewall device, rather than just relying on the windows host.

I tend to have firewalls lowered within environments, and control the edge.

for Server 2008 Advanced Firewall
http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en...meta=&aq=f&oq=
About 7 million possible results -- the first two look good

Concur re additional firewall, but I leave the Windows one up as a defence of last resort
