Re: [gopher] gopher server security. WAS: gopher hosting
Long time lurker here. Though I do appreciate the work you all do to keep gopher going.
I am thinking of running a gopher server on a VPS I have with Linode.
I wanted to gauge all your guy's opinions about how secure it would be to host a gopher server on a VPS that also had web sites. What I am getting at is do you think modern gopher servers are secure enough or should I isolate it to its own VPS? I understand nothings truly secure, I have a firewall set up, I monitor traffic and the like. Just general thoughts you might want to share.
