Configuring Web servers

Normally, what precautions should one take while configuring a Web server under Windows NT4.0 and Windows 2000 server? Default configuration of these OSs might open some security holes. What resources would you recommend for learning more about this?

Best bet is to consult an NT or 2000 security book. There are a number on the market. Or use a product like CyberCop to test the vulnerability of your system. Then turn off ALL network services you don't need.

Searchsecurity's sister site SearchWin2000.com also offers some good resource pointers.
