    Default Server Security Help

    I have IIS 4.0 installed on an NT Server and FrontPage Server Extensions 2002 installed on this server as well. SQL is installed on another server and I am building an ASP application.<BR><BR>I have lost my web server twice now and each time I struggle unnecessarily with security. I would like to KNOW how to set it up without having to research Microsoft&#039;s knowledge base for each error I come across...and none of the texts I own really covers the issue of getting each server to talk to each other...and to then allow the clients to view the data as well.<BR><BR>Does anyone know a good resource for "ground-up" security help?<BR><BR>Thanks,<BR><BR>Tammi
