    Flat networks in Wales - Who has one?

    Just wondering if any Primary/Secondary schools in Wales have flat networks, out LA has issues with having Sims accessible from the curriculum side.

    Really? Even through a firewall between the networks? Our LA doesnt like it either and this is their solution. It works OK but is a pain to set up as every laptop has to have two reserved IPs - one for wired and one for wireless

    Some have VLANs, some don't. No VLANS = sims, VLANS = no sims.

    Yeah our network is flat, while some from the LA said we shouldn't be running like that it was the LEA that set it up in the first place. Teachers logon to the curriculum server and have access to SIMS.

    Times change, kit gets better, permissions get stronger.

    Think of the time before solid NTFS permissions, keep the two separate or you'll have unwanted access in your MIS/administration documents. These days it's just down to dull users not understanding what a complex password is which is easily guessable...
