    RIP LLN

    So the day has almost come when we can say goodbye to Leeds Learning Network forever.
    Does anyone want to say a few last words?

    Anyone got any tales of woe or other stories that can be passed down to the next generation of techs?

    We've just two computers and one phone hanging on for dear life. The computers will be sorted tomorrow, and I'm going to leave the phone plugged in and see what time we're actually cut off on Monday.

    Do you think they'll send a box for the 2950 on Tuesday morning?

    Shall we hold a post LLN shutdown party?

    A party at the end of LLN?

    I was hoping to keep hold of the 2950 I think it'll cost them more to collect them all than it's worth!

    Also i wonder if i'll still be getting the downtime text messages once they do actually close...

    lln is dead but how did their replacement get a double digit number of schools (and locked them into a 4 year contract) lol

    got some admin servers still got a 2nd nic connected but thats it as atm they havnt said what they arre doing about fms or avco in non lln schools.

    I love the fact they have said they wont send emails to schools that left who use office 365 as they arnt secure yet hey will send to schools where they have set up office 365 and one thats stayed but ive set up office 365 so they cant get the school over a barrell again over email addresses

    best thing is as soon as its turned off i can remove the switches from cabs and tidy them up

    Avco already works from any internet connection - the server was moved a few weeks ago.

    FMS (as in FMS Leeds/FAB?) You should have had an email (or your main contact at school) to have your free Vasco tokens assigned. If you have't, PM me your email address and I'll forward the information.

    I'd already bought tokens as we left before the switch off date as suggested. I cannot however get this refunded

    BYE BYE LLN!!!!! We've had the connection unplugged for nearly a month now, all FAB/vasco token systems up and running.

    I AM however having issues with AVCO not working. Namely... I can't make it work! Anybody know what settings I'm supposed to use with it? I've had nothing from Leeds about this despite me hassling them. I even tried following the setup guide for Globalscape, but when that didn't work I was told "oh we are having issues with that".

    HA!

    As per usual the instructions provided didn't work for me either... I made some tweaks to the script that runs and it works fine for me now and has been for about 3 months now.
    I can't remember precisely what i changed but it might not work for your anyway.

    One thing that i have found is that i need to have the user which controls the scheduled task needs to remain logged in at all times.

    ICT4Leeds - still awful though.

    @Marshall_IT - am I running the correct AVCO program? Because stored in the settings of mine was a connection to avco.leedslearning.net:323 ???

    EFT?? Looks like another support call then! Oh the joy. Surely this must be a simple thing? @IrritableTech - do you know what AVCO stuff is in use?
