One of the systems is used as the attacker system for testing the network security. Results are obtained when the attacker system tries to access the internal network, along with attack analysis information are then documented. These results are considered in one scenario. In this scenario, the results of testing the network before configuring the firewall and applying security measures in server configurations are explained, and are compared with the results after configuring
