What are the possible threats (if any) if I host this service on an intranet? If the service is hosted locally, is there any real security threat from the outside internet?
I’‘m testing the service with the Pandion client but I’'m not finding it easy to tell if either the service or client communicates to the outside world in any way.
My test is on a Windows XP box but the final install would likely reside on Windows 2003 Server using the embedded database.
Any information or “best practices” for internally hosted services would be greatly appreciated.
