    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:

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