Hello Allan and Benedict,

Thank you for a steady stream of BSD-goodness 

In the near future I plan to deploy 2 HP microservers as offsite backup servers for my private FreeNAS and backup servers.
My plan is to persuade a family member and a friend to host one of them each on their networks - and use FreeNAS for easy administration and maybe offer them access to some services.

From my viewpoint the NAS-servers will be on hostile networks - as I don't control the networks and their users are not as security conscious as I am.
Will it be necessary to harden FreeNAS or do you think I should set up my own FreeBSD-servers from scratch?
What are the pro's and con's for both scenarios?
