    I'm not in the SWGFL but there appears to be some guides on their site. Have you tried these?

    It shouldn't be a problem at all, we are SEGfL but they opened our ports for us at SWGfL. You need to open a change control request, stating the ip of the server you want the firewall exception opened to and the port (80).

    They will (should) also make the DNS change for you. When I'm back home, I'll pm you my contact in the firewall change/DNS change dept who delt with me :-)

    You will need to complete a change request form with you can get from them. On it will need to put the IP address of your website and also the name you want your sub-domain set up as. Email them on support@swgfl.org.ukand they should be able to help you.

    I've been involved in things like that before with SWGfL when the school I was at in Devon wanted to make ePortal available from home.

    Cheers,
    Steve
