Whats a good way to check the security of a server on the internet? Ive
tried several differant companies software, and so far, am not impressed.
Anyone have any suggestions on testing the security of a server?

Post a message from your server in alt.hackers.malicious requesting a
penetration test. You will quickly become familiar with how insecure
it is.

Most security professionals charge for pen-testing, but there's a few
people in there that will probably help you out for free.

One more thing, you may want to have a backup image handy.

Doesn't Microsoft's Baseline Security Analyzer run in Server 2003?

Microsoft has some info here, including a pointer to a new Threats and
Countermeasures Guide for WinXP and Server 2003:

Here is a list you might want to check out:

That's pretty funny. Letting Micro$loth analyze it's own products.
LMAO!
