    Seriously I use logmein and it's really useful. Means I can upgrade SIMS from home at 10pm so I can be sure evey bugger is out! Deep Joy!
    I'm a heavy user of LogMeIn also, brilliant freebie!

    Maniac. I’m very impressed with SSL explorer. What restrictions are in the Community version?

    There's no restrictions as such, it's a fully functional product. The enterprise edition has extra security measures included including multi-factor authentication, and integration into systems such as RADIUS etc.

    For basic username/password authentication and active directory integration the community edition is adequate.

    My SSL explorer home page is https://www.nbc.medway.sch.uk:49302 If you'd like to have a look round inside a working SSL explorer installation then PM me with a contact phone number, and I'll ring you and give you a temporary login so you can have a look.

    Mike.

    Thanks for the offer but I’ve got the idea how it works from the flash movies on the SSL Explorer home page.

    I see your using a non standard port for SSL tunnelling. Did this present any problems for your users as my browser displayed an HTTP 502 proxy error when I tried to view your page? Probably because I’m behind our ISA server and it’s not configured to allow HTTPS access on port 49302

    Secure FTP?

    You could use secure FTP for handling access?

    We are using Web Dav to connect to our documents from home, logging into the website and then the intranet to their my documents.
    The problem we have is that some students do not have MS office on their pc at home which causes the 'my documents' link to point at their home pc 'my documents' folder.
    Has anyone got a fix for this rather than asking parents to fork out 40?

    We use terminal web services.

    Very easy to setup on the server and the user simply goes to a web page and has direct control of a school PC remote desktop.

    Is MS Office still licensed by device only, i.e. if you want to let users use MS Office at home their computer has to be licensed for it? This might have changed with Office 2010, or it might now be covered under the terms of an external connector license or similar. Use a web-based system capable of importing / editing MS Office documents?

    We want them to access their documents from home but not using remote desktop, they can copy and paste into their home pc, work on them and copy them back.
