    What's the real-world advantage of Sharepoint Portal Server over Sharepoint Services (which is free)?

    Yep - had to buy the amount of CALS based on devices in school. However, after some very hard questioning of MS licensing and some very confused answers at times, we were told that that was sufficient and that we could publish externally and allow domain users to connect.
    It works out about right - if you licence say 200 pcs under the school agreement you'll have to order 200 CALS. For that sort of number of pcs you'll probably have up to about 800 users. I would expect no more than 50 or so concurrent external connections from that sort of setup...

    The full story is here: http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;EN-US;830320

    But in short Portal Server has these additional features...

    Automatic categorization
    Audiences
    Topic areas
    News
    Personal sites
    Shared services
    Single sign-on
    Site directory
    User profiles

    Too early in my deployment to give a real life example though...

    What happens when Google crawls your Sharepoint Portal then?

    in brief, sharepoint services sites exist as islands. sharepoint portal brings them all together by allowing content from 'island' sites to be pull together and targeted towards 'audiences' <- groups of users. It also allows full text searching of all the 'island' sites.

All you need to be able to access is the website from within the school (the Local Authority may block it; proxy avoidance) and have port 443 access (for SSL).

    I recommend logmein - which works well and is free

    https://secure.logmein.com

    Re: sharepoint what's it for?

    Thanks spuffmonkey I'd also recommend www.logmein.com.

    The only differences between the pay per use and the free ones seems to be in the extra functionality: file transfers between local and remote workstations, remote printing and so on.

    I personally used www.gotomypc.com for just over 2 years, its a pay per use, but its really quick and you can even use it on a pocket PC. It also lets you resize the window and the remote desktop shrinks, looks very cool.

    www.gotoassist.com and www.gotomeeting.com are also worth a look. I should get shares...
