Running a server

To run a server requiring access from external clients you need:

  • CiCS approval
  • to be granted firewall exemption

To apply for a firewall exemption ensure:

  • the server machine has a static IP address
  • you’re running secure services, or do not provide access to privileged information
  • you’re running up-to-date, secure versions of the software

Fill out the online Firewall Exemption Application form below and submit it.

CiCS will test your computer to ensure correct configuration – which is done without a personal visit.
