    Sophos Web Filtering

    I'm moving to a new school in the next few weeks and currently it looks like we may be using a Sophos web filtering system as that's whats been specced. Personally I'm a big fan of Smoothwall, but I wanted to see what users of the Sophos solution thought?

    Have any of you got macs bound to both AD/OD and how are you finding browsing via the macs? Ideally I'd like full integration, but I'm not sure if the sophos solution is able to deliver that.

    Why not have a word with the support team? I always found them very helpful when we used them

    If there's anything we can do to help sophos get unspecced, do shout

    Ah well he's ended up with Gav looking after that area, the lucky devil. I'm glad someone we know got the job in the end, at least we're sure Mr. Fish has his head screwed on right - dread to think what could happen at a new build like that with the wrong sort of guy at the helm. And we get to keep you nearby in yorkshire john, also a bonus
