      The Windows Server® 2008 operating system includes a variety of technologies that communicate with the Internet to provide increased ease-of-use and functionality. Browser and e-mail technologies are obvious examples, but there are also technologies such as automatic updating that help you obtain the latest software and product information, including bug fixes and security patches. These technologies provide many benefits, but they also involve communication with Internet sites, which administrators might want to control. This white paper provides information about the communication that flows between features in Windows Server 2008 and sites on the Internet, and describes steps to take to limit, control, or prevent that communication in an organization with many users. This white paper is designed to assist you, the administrator, in planning strategies for deploying and maintaining Windows Server 2008 in a way that helps provide an appropriate level of security and privacy for your organization’s networked assets.
