    I meant awful just because of who they are, I don't actually have experience of them :-/ Mean of me I know. We are now with Virgin Media.

    Am on with the AVCO thing now, finally got a call back!! Apparently we should still be using the AVCO Anycomms software, the Globalscape EFT has been so much hassle they are shelving it for 6 months (sent back to developers to make an easier install). Will let you all know if it works..... for the sake of it

    Yes you should be continuing with AVCO and the address will remain Avco.leedslearning.net:323. The leedslearning.net domain doesn't expire until dec 2014 and it's controlled by the LCC so it makes sense to leave it where it is, and leave one less thing for schools to change.

    Eft is a custom cuteftp install which requires a certificate at both ends. A couple of schools have got it running, but due to the fact there have been so many issues, nobody at LCC is using it yet. So they took the decision to extend the Avco licence for six months. We will all be using eft once that expires.

    Schools who can't get either working can use ad hock eft (a session via a website is opened for a week) or schools2schools.

    Data Management are the best people to speak to regarding installing and configuring any of the above.

    I've managed to get my AVCO instance working YEY!!

    It turned out that although my AVCO settings and firewall settings were correct, we use a custom IPsec policy on our Admin servers which was blocking it! I just needed to modify the policy to allow communication to the new AVCO IP address.

    ICT4Leeds is the new rebranded LLN. In reality it's the councils ICT department. I think it's been designed in conjunction with the YHGfL, and their new commercial arm ICT4Collaboration (but happy to be corrected on this).

    It is based on the Yorkshire and Humber Public Services Network contract. Connections are supplied by Virgin business, filter/firewall is smoothwall and Office365 for communication.

    ICT4Leeds retained around 60 of their previous 260 schools across the city. Most who wanted to keep their current VoIP telephone infrastructure. The remaining 200 schools have pretty much ended up with two local commercial companies.

    I'm pleased for you. We must be one of the only schools that managed to get EFT working then. I've not had any complaints for DMT asking me to set AVCO up again. Yet...

    Well done!

    At a meeting a couple of weeks ago I was talking to another NM who has it working (I've not had the files or instructions yet), but he said that nobody within the council departments knows how to use it, so nothing ever comes through it. Not the case for you then?

    No, we get our files through it as far as i know it's working all okay.

    I'll double check to make sure AVCO isn't still running...

    No, AVCO isn't running anymore and i received files through EFT on the 18/02/2014.

    Possibly a good place to put or maybe not, but whats the chances of having a Leeds NM meet up during the easter holidays?

    To discus How people are getting on post LLN or how ICT4Leeds is actually performing.

    Nothing too in-depth and maybe a drink or 2 afterwards?

    I know Schools ICT Services are looking to host something after Easter for customers and non customers. Not to say your idea isn't a good one though... Anyone central able to host? :-)

    I'd be up for that.
    Is anyone still using Sophos? Any issues getting updates from from YHGfL instead of LLN?

    Sorry, we switched to ESET anti-virus. I assume you're still with LLN/ICT4Leeds then? Have they provided any new URL's to point the software at?

    Do you bank with HSBC or Barcleys? If so you were probably sent a little digital device at some point for using internet banking. Along with your username and password the device generates a unique code which rotates every couple of minutes or so! This is the same as the Vasco tokens

    Nope, we went with Exa-Networks. I overlooked Sophos. I'd included it in my budget but forgot to place an order-doh! I was just trying to pre-empt any problems.
