    sharepoint what's it for?

    a guy from who was giving us a quote on something else told me that schools are installing sharepoint server and a non-county-controlled dsl line to allow pupils access to files from home. anyone here actually doing that?

    can u do the same thing with sharepoint services? is it as secure?

    I was just thinking the same thing. I think NGfL wouldn't be too chuffed about you running an 'unsecured' second line into the school.

    Besides, it'll just be cheaper to wait till the remote access trials are done and then set up a Linux box to allow authenticated remote access.

    Thats rather unfair.

    I tried to get RM (segfl) to send me the forms for change request but they haven't. I wonder if its because I asked for a completely unfiltered ip address. They just go on and on about how its a bad idea and that it will let stuff in and out. I know that, thats the WHOLE POINT!

    I'm quite capable of firewalling off an ipaddress and I don't need to be treated like a madman or a child when I ask 8O

    I have a 10Mb lan etension, still have a 2Mb line that no one seems to be bothered about (replaced by the 10). They took my router away for that anyway. I could always use the 2 isdn lines in the server cabinet I guess.

    indeed. i was wondering more about sharepoint than actual method of entry.
    We havent got the skills to do anything with critical with linux plus our network manager doesnt like linux either.

    If all you want to do is grant access to users to there home directories or shared areas you don't need sharepoint.

    All you require is something like wexlite and a front end page with a reverse proxy from your LEA.

    Not quite as simple as that as a little scripting and knowledge of AD & GPO is required. We (should I say my tecchie) set it all up in house at no cost other than manhours.

    Ours gives access to Home Directories, Shared Areas, Room Booking, Email, School forums and even ECDL training. All secured with SSL.

    If you want to know more I'll pm his contact No.

    Serious note Geoff. Don't get caught being naughty. There have been a few breaches in the past due to schools running second lines and opening up CLEO
    through them. These schools got jumped up and down on. Big time. It is in the
    schools agreement that they should not fit second lines. You know we are doing remote access trials and with the new web storage array in place pupils will soon have access to online folders which are accessable from home. Just ask the web team.

    I know all about that. This DSL line I'm thinking of was in before I got here. Not my problem/decision basically. We do have another line elsewhere but thats off the main site and was because CLEO refused to give us a connection there.

    Yeah I know. We're on the reverse proxy trial and VPN here at Carr Hill remember.

    Part of it. It had been hindered due to lack of storage. this has now been addressed by this installation of the web storage array.
