Firewall Problems and Solutions

Tony Karrer

I would love to hear back from people on this as I received a question around firewall problems and solutions that I've not heard as much in the past couple of years. Their issue is that they are running into customers who are tightening their firewall settings and it causes some of their content to not work. Are you finding issues with firewalls these days? Anyone having issues with Windows Media and firewalls? If so, how do they avoid problems with firewalls and other security systems designed to strip out potentially malicious code? are gone.

Blogging Inside or Outside the Corporate Firewall

Tony Karrer

I did suggest that they would either use a Wiki behind the firewall or use a password protected Wiki - because that's where the work product goes. If it's captured in a system inside the corporate firewall, it won't go outside. Stephen Downes commented on my recent post - Personal Work and Learning Environments (PWLE) - More Discussion and said - I am opposed to the trend coming from the corporate learning side of the house to treat PLEs as work tools. It is an interesting issue. There's a side benefit of doing this in that you can keep the content beyond your current job.

Upside Learning

Adding to this dilemma is another level of decision making – whether to go for an OnDemand / SaaS / Hosted LMS service, or for a behind-the-firewall LMS deployment.

Report – LMS Trends 2015: Is it time for something different?


Nearly one-third of organizations have their LMS installed behind a firewall, but that number is dropping as companies become more comfortable with cloud technology.

RSS: The new intranet protocol? Learning2.0 behind the firewall

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

It's not necessary when IT departments are deploying the informal learning tools behind the firewall. From ZDNet is the article RSS: The new intranet protocol? RSS is the LMS killer! Because it looks like LMS providers have been wanting to become all things to all people by trying to add KM, eLearning, ILT management, learning2.0, all into one package. An LMS should simply track usage stats for the small amount of remaining courses and then somehow try to get a data collection point around the informal learning that is occuring. Also, I really do not like Sharepoint. I do not use it.

When Does a Cloud-based LMS Make Sense?

Living in Learning

There was something about having my own staff running my own servers behind my own firewall that provided a sense of security and control. To an extent it did, and the IT staff would be the first to man the ramparts to fight off having anything living outside the firewall – much less allowing anyone outside to get into our systems. I feel their concern, and I respect the need to protect the network and data resources behind the firewall. A few years ago, I am quite certain, I would have been fighting this “cloud” concept tooth and nail.

Five Reasons Why Technology Still Hasn't Totally Taken Off in Schools

The Learning Dispatch

Firewalls, filters, and strict school policies are the culprit here. School Internet Use Policies Are Restrictive This makes sense: technology isn''t going to be a big hit with schools that have drawn boundaries for its usage.
