Question About The Safety of Port Forwarding

Post by NightGuardianAngel » Mon Dec 20, 2010 8:05 am

I just set up my first unrealircd server and I forwarded port 6667 on the windows firewall and on my dsl router in order to allow public connections to my server I am using a home dsl service and I thought about keeping the server available 24 hours a day for public use. Does anyone know if it is still safe for the PC in which I have my unrealircd server running on and for my LAN to open port 6667 while the server is running and listening in on that port?
