    at a guess it will be the "ntl box" that in most of my schools went in a 1 u rack with 3 holes 1 used that the fibre went in and rj45 came out and went to the cisco a labelled shuk iirc

    I've been tempted many times before! Its switched off now, of course, but it does bug me. I'll see if I can resist drilling the lock for a few more days. Its not doing any harm there, but I am curious.
    I did wonder if any of the 2950 units would end up on ebay but I suppose they are pretty useless without the admin password which most schools (including mine) don't seem to have. I do have a console cable though...

    We left LLN last year and went with Exa-Networks with GApps for Education emails and ESET for AV. Was so glad to see the back of LLN (and SOPHOS)! Oddly though I got a phone call from the council organising to come and collect our cisco router the week before LLN were supposed to disconnect us?! Would have considered that being on the ball had the router not actually belonged to us and not them. No change in their ability to organise the proverbial in a brewery then.

    Just an update to the 2950 situation... A council network team representative has just confirmed to me that they have no interest in reclaiming the switches. Feel free to wipe the password and do what you will with them...

    Cisco Catalyst Fixed Configuration Layer 2 and Layer 3 Switches - Cisco

    When looking at ours we found the first 8 ports were configured for both our Admin and VoIP VLAN. In the past, this would have been useful to know. Some of our smaller primaries only had a few devices on their admin networks, but we maintained a small switch to get them running. Anyone else care to share any surprises?!
