In order to enhance safety we recommend:
  • In any case protect your computer with the Firewall gate:
    • Whether it has or not a public IP address
    • Whether it does contain or not important information
    because such an unsecured computer may become attackers' stepping stone to attack more computers
  • The RAC system has got enough of security features and using combination of these features you may exclude the risk of unauthorized misuse of your computer.
    For safe control of your remote computer we recommend:
    • Set your password using 8 characters minimally
    • Combine your password using letters and digits or possibly in capitals
    • Use Logging with authorization key
    • Use Locking Accounts or at least Message Sending to the e-mail address regarding RAC Server events
    • With the user accounts use the administrator properties for possible option of disconnecting unauthorized users
    • Use DNS or IP filter in case that you log on from static places
    • Enable the Computer Shutdown service in case that your computer is attacked by an unauthorized person or by an electronic attack etc. because in such a case the best solution is to switch the computer off and remove the cause of the breakthrough locally without any physical connection of the computer to the Internet/Intranet network
