Ix2 Security

Post by indnajns » Thu Jul 18, 2013 8:30 pm

FINALLY! After six months, I have our ix2 working correctly! Until now, security hasn't been an issue, since no one on the planet could make remote access work, but now I have actually logged in from the outside world and seen my stuff in its folders, right there on the drive. Cool! So, how do I keep the rest of the world from doing the same? I have security turned on and have created logins for the three or four users we'll have on this thing, but passwords are easy to crack. Isn't there anything else between my files and the rest of the world? There's a router with a firewall, but Iomega has you open ports 80, 443, and 50500-50599 and anybody who stumbles upon the correct IP address is going to be presented with the ix2's front page and asked to login. How do I keep the hackers at bay?

find out the source ip addresses those people will be coming in from and setup a firewall rule to exclude all except those ip's.. if their ip's are going to change.. well.. you have a problem..
