    Yeah go to https://filter.education.btlsl.co.uk/ and login with the head/itcoord or bursar MyLFGL account. Since my primaries still use the exchange mail from OCL we just log in as itcoord@school.lancs.sch.uk

    Would you believe it today we get a post on the portal telling us that we are next in line to get the filtering. Reading further down the page it states they have changed the filtering for the school to the new lightspeed filtering for the staff admin network already, and that on Monday 03 march at 08:00hrs we will be changing the students curriculum network on to the lightspeed filtering. you would think no problem that's workable.

    Except the filtering is not working correctly got social networking blocked on the old netsweeper system (using the admin network for the guest wireless access and the BYOD access) not blocked on the new system. Changes made without first sending us access rights to the new filtering admin console. Phoned them to be told your not due to get access until your live date of 14 march. So come Monday morning 1300 students potentially having access to the world with no way of controlling who sees what.

    What a shower you think the logical thing to do is send out all the admin rights first then change the admin filtering to allow you to have a play them change the curriculum filtering not BTLSL same sh-t different name

    Looking on the Lightspeed webui it appears there's an option to add users within that system to allow an override to websites. So, you could define a staff account there so that when/if they come across a site that is blocked they enter their username/password to get through it.
    Not tested it but did see that as a thing when adding a few urls to the student allow list.

    I had a conversation with one of the Lightspeed team at OCL earlier today and was told that AD filtering is coming in the next couple of weeks.

    Apparently they are very close but needed to get the roll out started to be done it time.

    I've asked to be notified when it is available and as soon as I know I will post here and let you all know.

    I've been informed and confirmed that the parent proxy on the NED is now lightspeed (if you have been swapped over) so for now you can get AD filtering the old way.

    Just got info through for my first school (simple primary - no ad needed/used)
    I'm confused as it seems with no proxy setting - I can get on T'internet
    And with PAC file settings I can get on the internet

    Whats the advantage of using the PAC file?

    we used to use lightspeed and at the time their AD filtering depended on a user agent that had to be pushed out to the client...let me say this was a huge PAIN IN THE ASS because it never worked. We switched to iBoss about 3 years ago. Their AD filtering is done with a plugin that is installed on your DC's (kind of like every other filter out their except STUPID LIGHTSPEED). Works great...haven't looked back.

    anyone have any issues with emails from outside providers/suppliers we have had two calls this morning from people reporting that when sending emails to us, they are getting a response back saying their IP address is blocked as spam.

    @SimpleSi The pac file just contains one line saying go direct so its a bit useless. Last time I spoke to them about it they said it was "just incase they changed the settings in the future" but as I pointed out to them if they are saying we can use no proxy a change in settings would have to be slowly rolled out in the future so we still have time to change anyway.

    Apparently we need to fill in a form to state that we have changed over. Have been told its on the posts on the school portal anyone seen it on any of the post about light speed. I have checked but cant find it or am I going blind
