I am wondering what other schools have worked out in terms of setting
up winnebago library card catalog access over the web.
we are running winnebago/webcat on a win2000 server and I managed to
configure access across my firewall on port 80 to the internal fixed ip
of the win2000 server.
I should have trusted my gut and been more wary as it took only a week
for some port scanning hacker to wreak some havoc with my network.
The network is somewhat stabilized now but I am very hesitant to open
any ports or services on or to an older win2000 server. I suspect that
moving to win2003 server would be a logical first step. I told My
librarian I would put out a request for advice to see how other schools
might be serving their card catalogs to home users while maintaining
some security control...
