    Re: ISA and...?

    The problems we used to have with the logon box popping up for the users going on the Internet were a) students banned from using the internet could use someone else's credentials in this box and b) teachers got confused with 2 authentication boxes when trying to access our LEA Extranet (even though one said "Bishop Barrington Proxy" (which needed their local username nad password) and another that said "Durhamlea schools extranet" which needed the global username and password for the LEA site.

    We solved all this though with IPCop

    "I'm not having them login twice
    In a way it could be quite a good thing to have them log on twice, it makes users *think* about what they are doing, using a web-browser, accessing the internet and that the authentication will mean that their actions are being monitored. It sounds dumb to us but for your average yr7/teacher its an important thing to know.

    2 authentication boxes when trying to access our LEA Extranet

    bypass your authentication in your proxyconfig, its an extranet site.

    We didn't think of that at the time, but like I said.. we don't have the logon popup now we moved to IPCop, yet everything is still logged

    See, now I agree with all the views here - I personally think that two logins is a damn fine idea... although the kids here don't take their passwords seriously at all and allow them to be used left right and centre...

    NM has now got onto the LEA / our provider and has put the onus on them to start blocking by keyword as well (a block of the keyword 'proxy' would solve 98% of my problems here!)

    Now, if I can get the time to play, play with Censornet / IPCop / etc, I will...

    .... if the NM didn't lump the KS3 testing on me, that is... (his idea of a handover was to show me the installation book and install it on one workstation in the room behind us...)
