Is this mandatory for SEGfL?
About 10 minutes to smashing it with a hammer.

I might have to see whether we can upgrade, I was told by the last IT manager it'd be upgraded to a Sophos product but no sign of that happening yet, can't be mandatory then!
can't you get shot of it and use smoothwall?
I want to, have got one of my staff to go through a demo with one of the nice ladies @ smoothwall - budget is very slim this year but i had budgeted for a beefy server to replace the old proxy server we have... currently, the setup is MS Proxy Server forwarding to the CachePilot (causes issues with Ajax heavy sites)... wasn't my idea but they did it to keep the cachepilot on it's own subnet so kids/staff couldn't bypass the default gateway and forward requests although they could have done it a different way!
I really, really want SmoothWall or at worst, WebMarshal - finding it difficult to justify out of my tiny bucket of funds :-(
iv heard that you should be getting your sophos box this summer. give david a ring to find out whats happening. also i think beachwood school are using smooth wall might be worth giving steve a call. cachepiliots are not needed as they are not used in windsor and maindenhead.
We just put in the Sophos box, it's working perfectly now... hooray.
are you still running that proxy server? hows it all going at baylis?
We had to put Sophos on the 10.13 range and forward to the easynet range, everything is ok at the moment except we have 170 more laptops to deal with and more students. Just getting everything ready for upcoming term now... fun.
What are you doing at the moment?
im working in gloucestorshire do IT support for the schools. we have about 300 schools to look after and is kinda fun driving all over the county seeing differnet villages and stuff.
that natting was a pain.
hope all is going well and say hi to the lads
Both off today... will tell them you said hello.
IT Support across many schools, Gloucestershire is huge though and hilly isn't it?
Beats sitting in the office all day, enjoy!
we had a cachepilot gave to us by our lea, stupid thing had a memory hole in it so would crash after 24 hours, but our lea gave us smoothwall now 100 times better
*cough* *cough* - may I be of assistance, sir? Seriously - if you want to know about what we can do - get in touch. I'm always lurking - or the phone/email below!
Thanks, I think I've convinced the LEA to upgrade our cacepilot hardware boxes with smoothwall
