I am having several Anonymous Logon entries in my security log in Windows 2K
Server. Please answer the following questions if possible.

1. How can I track down to see exactly what the Anonymous logon client is
accessing?

2. How can I determine where or how the Anonymous logon client is accessing
from?

3. Does the system have to have Anonymous Logon, and if not can I disable
it?

Thanks for your help.

Most likely it's IIS. If you don't use IIS remove it. If you don't
want anonymous web access, remove anonymous access from the web site
in IIS.

Anonymous logons [null sessions] are common with Windows networking and
mostly used by browse list maintenance for My Network Places. If you disable
netbios over tcp/ip or file and print sharing on a computer the anonymous
logons can be greatly reduced or eliminated. They are not a problem if you
have a firewall protecting your network, enforce the use of complex
passwords for your network, and monitor for unusual activity for failed
logon attempts.. --- Steve

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=246261 --- explanation of null sessions
and how to restrict them IF compatible with your network configuration.
