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? Do Flash players cause any problems with firewalls?

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.

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

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!

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.

Virtual Classroom Adoption – The Four Stages of Change

InSync Training

Organizations spend more time worrying about firewalls, security, hardware, and software (important topics all) than they think about adoption and usability. Adopting, and excelling at, the virtual classroom is much more about attitudinal change than it is about implementing technology.

I was just asked on twitter about use social bookmarking tools that work behind the firewall. I thought I had blogged about this before, but I'm not finding the post.

New Hire Onboarding Blog or Social Network

Tony Karrer

How about asking select new hires to keep an inside the firewall blog as they begin their jobs at your company? Just wanted to through an idea at everyone that came up during several discussions today at DevLearn. or If they come into the company in waves, how about providing them a discussion group or better yet a social network tool that has good discussions as a means of communicating with each other and with coaches? Is this already being done all the time? If not, why not?

I can’t get in, they can’t get out

Spark Your Interest

One thing that I’ve noticed over the past few months is the challenge that an organization firewall presents for someone like me. I’m not an employee, or a long term contractor, just a short term consultant, so my clients can’t always invite me to collaborate using their internal tool. Nor are they allowed to install any kind of plug-in to use an alternate tool, like Skype.
