Submission + - Wireless connection to your Windows Server 2003?

blh42 writes: I just browsed the newly released service pack 2 for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 when I read a disturbing fact. The release notes at Cert describes the following security enhancements:
* The ability to simplify the creation and maintenance of the Internet Protocol security (IPsec) policy
* Group Policy support for non-broadcasting networks and Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) settings to allow Windows wireless client configuration
* Windows wireless client support for WPA2 with the following features:
— Non-broadcast network profiles are now marked with a flag to improve the security of the Windows wireless client.
— Windows will not automatically connect to a peer-to-peer network, even if it has been automatically saved in the preferred network list.


Now, I'm wondering how many that would actually consider setting up a server room that only supports wireless networks? Why would anyone even consider using the wireless client on a Windows Server 2003?

You scratch my tape, and I'll scratch yours.
