This is a double post as I asked questions in server/security

post=http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...72#post3905372


My main question: Can I secure a web server running a myth backend? I dont want multiple 24/7 machines running. This will not be mythbuntu but ubuntu 6.06 server no window manager, am I correct x-windows need to be forwarded?

Can I install a Mythbuntu front end only and configure for the backend later? If the backend isn't finished yet?
