    I bought a new server, so click that, but technically as we built it and it was built from computer parts and not server parts, maybe I should of selected workstation.

    Our does 700 students and 50 staff, and its a 2.4ghz AMD, with 2 gb RAM. So nothing special and it does the job, its been going for 3 years now and we have never had a problem with it.

    This runs our proxy server, which includes, dansguardian, squid, asset/help centre and multimedia programs.

    We run Censornet on an old Workstation. As long as it has plenty RAM it seems work without any problems. This is for 1350 Users and 370 workstations.

    Compared to you lot, I need to move out of the Dark Ages... running a Celeron 600 over here with a mere 128mb of PC100!!!

    Works adequately provided that the users are restricted to 256k speed limit in a class of 28max, otherwise at 512, this number of users simultaneously downloading videos will overload it.

    Sounds pretty bad but I've not had any complaints since dumping Packet Dynamics 2 years ago! Surprisingly, speed isn't actually that much different for users.

    @Mark - you need to select SMP in the "setup" (login as root, run setup if you want to do it after the fact) to use >1 processor.

    How's the speed looking now - admittedly 80-odd schools is quite a bunch to go through one box, and its one of our largest UK installs (we've a few more big ones in the US).
