Remote Alert is a Windows Home Server add-in that provides remote access notification, additional security layers and remote access activity logging.
- Real time logon activity status (successful / failed) alerts
- Real time network activity traffic monitor
- Real time connected session and resources overview
- Remote access activity history overview (basic client info: IP address & browser type)
- IP Security for IP address or entire network range blacklisting
- Powerful brute-force protection (cannot be fooled via proxies & suspends remote access but does not kill any legit sessions)
- Man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack and ARP poisoning detection
- Remote access availability scheduler (i.e. suspend remote access during nighttime, does not affect HP Webshare or additional websites)
- Smart IIS Web logs parser
- Build-in self-checking update notification
Remote Alert IP Security
You can import bulk sets of IP address and network listings to deny access to your Windows Home Server over the internet. The following Remote Alert IP Security blocklists / blacklist / IP deny lists are provided without any warranty whatsoever. No blocklist will ever be perfect – it may contain a number of false positives and false negatives.
You can create your own Remote Alert compatible deny lists by creating a text file with *.ra extension in the netmask format (IP Address, Netmask). Example:
# China deny list example
