    Edugeek gets more hits than the BBC and Yahoo? I highly doubt it somehow (no disrespect to Edugeek). I'm surprised Sophos is in there too.

    I expected sophos. As an LEA we all use it so every pc and laptop auto updates from there.

    Surely your workstations (within your network) update from a server within your network? And laptops update (more than likely) from a LA hosted server and not Sophos directly.

    Sophos would have absolutely huge bandwidth costs if everyone updated from their servers.

    In Birmingham for example, they have a central Sophos server which updates a server within every school LAN. These servers then supply updates to workstations within each school LAN.
    For laptops used at home, Birmingham provide a server for updating laptops directly over the web.

    In practice, it means that Birmingham LA only download updates from Sophos once then pass on updates to schools.

    There is now a central server as of the end of March, but before that it was a direct connection to sophos.
    Of course in-house we had an enterprise server but every school is not set up like that.

    Our top ten is highly dubious, due to the fact that all of the kids go through a home built squid proxy, then onto a "RM smart" (read dumb) Cache.

    My browsing does not.

    @Elky: My bad, school boy error, chalk one on the board - I'll buy the bacon sarnies on Friday.

    @Everyone: To save my own embarrasment at being a blind idiot, please ignore my other post. In fact, just ignore everything I say - It'll be for the best!

    windowsupdate is easy to explain seems 90% of our laptops decided it was good time to ignore our GPO for wsus.
    symantec surprised me though as we should only have 3 Parent servers for updates.

    You can see how much actual work gets done here, and only the teachers are allowed on youtube by the filter. Oh and before anyone asks Miniclip was enabled because of staff moaning directly to the principal and a subsequent directive from him.
