    Re: Dirty internet access line

    We have a no to staff and teachers hooking up random laptops. We have supplied 'dirty' lines to a few places, including one to our office so we can clean dodgy pcs and laptops. Rather a botch job in that we have taken the patch points straight into a mini hub which hooks into a smoothwall box that has two cards, with the second card hooking into the network with the Soothwall box pointed directly to the gateway. Ropey but works, mini network is on completely different ip range.

    Eventually we are going to look into rigging it into a VPN so we can choose any point around the school to be 'dirty' (ohhh, dirty line sir? Suits you) without jerry rigging spaghetti between cabs. But until then in it works.

    Re: Dirty internet access line

    We have a VLAN called guest, and an ACL (Access Control List) applied to that VLAN that ONLY ALLOWS DNS, DHCP, HTTP and HTTPS traffic. It then blocks all traffic to internal adresses apart from the firewall, and allows any other adress, so providing a website doesnt start with 10.0, they can access it, and not have any access at all to internal printers, servers etc...

    Works very well.
