I'm new to the listserv and have benefited greatly from reading your
posts for the past month or so. Thanks to all for sharing your
At Woodstock we have an issue I hope some of you can help with. We have
a restricted account that students use that restricts the use of ActiveX
won't run in IE. All our machines are running IE v.6.
Everything works great in FireFox but IE is our default browser.
do other schools/districts deal with ActiveX?
Thaks for any help,

Subject: Re: WAN considerations
We are running Breen Accounting using Terminal Services from a school
with a cable modem. We are also using Citrix for FileMaker remote access
to two schools and home access. Citrix has worked so well that we are
even using it for access over our LAN. The big issue has been local
printing but we seemed to have worked out most of the bugs.
I have experimented with SASI over Citrix with less positive results.
Speed has been an issue compared to access over the LAN. SASI assures me
they have many sites that are working well but I have to keep my
secretaries happy. We will due more testing later this year.

supervisory union and its school districts together. In its initial
phase, the plan is to centralize administrative servers and software and
to create a means by which the supervisory union and the schools within
to share curricula, standards, and student data (for the su only). The
shared applications would be accounting (NEMRC), special ed (SpEdDoc),
and maybe student administrative software.
>I have very little experience using applications over a WAN, so it is
hard for me to know what this experience would be like for the user. Our
users are accustomed to accessing applications and data from the LAN
where response time is quick. It may be hard for them to see the long
term benefits of consolidation, if they see a degradation in the speed
of their programs. Bandwidth must be an important consideration in
addressing this issue. Can anyone recommend minimums in bandwidth based
on approximately 40 concurrent users? Are there other stumbling blocks
that those of you with WANs have had to address?
