Least Security Vulnerable Type of Server
I'm trying to install the new (and free) VMWare Server for virtual machines. It turns out that it must be installed on a Linux server (which type isn't specified) rather than a workstation as I have now.
Of the types of servers (web, ftp, etc.), is there one that is less of a security vulnerability than others or can I just close their ports and be safe? I do have my machine set up as a samba server but I'm not sure if that is enough.
Thanks for any advice you can provide.
