    Quick question for portsmouth schools

    Hi,

    Do any other schools in Portsmouth use Insight to give parents reports online.

    If so where is your Webserver held and do you have any extra security?

    We currently have our Insight webserver in a DMZ in our school with smoothwall acting as a barrier between it and our network. PCC say we do not need to do this as their firewall will protect us but it was put in as an extra layer of security.

    I like that we have extra control of the internet for students with smoothwall but with our license running out this year I need to see how others are handling the issue to see if I could use the money in other areas. Also alot of people were unhappy with the performance of our smoothwall for a while although it has been running well for a while now.

    Thanks in advance for any feedback.

    We did use Insight for about 2 years, but now we have SIMS integration through Moodle, all we did was notify PCC that the server needed an external IP so people could access it and let their firewall protect it, we do use TMG 2010 on the curriculum network but only to add an extra layer of content filtering .
