    You could consider Adito but without knowing why you 'cant' use Easylink its hard to give you a solution.

    Ah ok, that's fine then, consider Adito, or do you have a VLE on site?

    We are currently deploying Sun Global Desktop. Expensive but it will do the job.

    An alternative is available for any of your users who get E-Mail through Exchange. Do you support any users like this?

    Also - we use the SMB Web Client Block through our Moodle VLE....but the Moodle needs to run on Linux.

    Another vote for adito, I still use the older windows version of it when it was called SSL-Explorer: Community Edition

    Link to the old SSL-Explorer windows installer

    Could anyone give me some advice on how the one is setup at Leicester Uni, as i think it's a good solution.

    I'm having trouble with the security settings.
