Running a server
To run a server requiring access from external clients you need:
- IT Services 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.
IT Services will test your computer to ensure correct configuration – which is done without a personal visit.
