Firewall Problems and Solutions

Clark Quinn

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? Do Flash players cause any problems with firewalls?

Hosted vs. Behind-the-firewall LMS – How To Decide?

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. If your organization has a strict (and I mean really strict) policy of not using hosted services for LMS (or other business applications), then you don’t have an option but to opt for a behind-the-firewall implementation. Be aware and sure of these costs before going in for behind–the-firewall deployment.

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.

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.
