SEP test on win 2003 server -- Server freezing
I have installed unmanaged SEP on windows 2003 standard server.
I was testing its ability to handle attacks.
I have network threat protection enabled.
After installing SEP on windows 2003 server (A) i was able to login and access a share through system B(XP desktop)
I took system C and attacked windows 2003 server A by using the following commands.
1) nessus with all plug-ins enabled and scanning 1-65535 ports
2) nmap -P0 -v -p '1-65535' <ip-address of windows 2003 server A)
Once both these commands are running , after sometime both my share and remote-desktop conneciton from system B whiich was not attacking lost connections to server A and i couldnot even ping server A anymore.
What doesnot make sence is when i am attacking from system C, SEP should just block communications from system C but apparently SEP is stopping all networking functionality on the server 2003 system there by denying access to everybody and i had to reboot the serve or wait for an hour or 2 before SEP relenables all networking functionality.
When i disable Network threat protection and do the scanning the server is ok.
Ayy ideas to keep network threat protectio nenabled and stop server freezing.
