    Is there anything getting blocked as Citrixdoes have ports like 2598 and 1494 (think these are right) that it uses.

    There's a check-box somewhere in Lightspeed's settings to enable / disable filtering of peer-to-peer traffic, with filtering enabled by default. If you disable that it might solve the problem - there's no indication of what ports / protocols Lightspeed is actually filtering there, it might be affecting Citrix's connection.

    do an internal ignore rule for the specific IP address of that machine. It should then be allowed through as no rules will be applied to it. This is not a filtering allow all rule but an internal ignore rule that's in a different place

    I'm sure this end-user is trustworthy and so on, but that solution does remove all web filtering for their machine.

    Thanks for all your replies
    MatthewL i wouldn't of thought it would be a port issue, as it worked fine before we changed to lightspeed (and only the filtering has changed) ...but i may ring OCL and ask them...
    dhicks i looked for a peer2peer section in the lightspeed rocket and could only see the one in general, and that was disabled (by default)
    SchoolsBroadband ill look into adding her ip into the ignore rule, if it does take all the filtering off ill have to perhaps look into another way...also shes not in school everyday so after the default 8 days her ip would get changed, and i don't really want to give her laptop a static as she works in various schools...

    thanks again...

    A DHCP reservation would sort that - her machine would still get an IP address via DHCP, it would just alway gets the same address.
