(smothwall) I've had it with cachepilot
Ok here is the story so far
we were one of the first schools in stockton to my knowledge to integrate cachpilot with server 2008 AD. unfortunately to my horror Equiinet had not relaesed an update to allow a cachepilot box to do this so we had to settle with people logging into the cachepilot everytime they went to use the internet.
It took Equiinet just over a month to send me an update to allow me to integrate the cachepilot box in to server 2008. :mad:
It worked fine for about a month until 3 days ago I started to goet angry staff and students at my door saying the internet was down. On closer look in to the problem It required a reboot of the cachepilot box. this help for a whole 20 minutes, then I would have to reboot the box again.. and again and again. I Phoned easynet to report the problem and they still haven't got back to me with a solution.
I need to come up with a solution that is becta approved and noticed everyone is starting to use smoothwall. plenty of good reports, so I'm really impressed with the product.
I have a spare pc here with plenty of ram, hdd, and cpu power. How much will it cost me to moth over to this?
any help would be much appreciated, I would like to set this up tomorrow and take the box into work to finish off on monday and have it installed
