We had similar issues a couple of years ago in Waterbury when we first began widespread use of GAFE, and it turned out to be a firewall/content filter issue. Sorry, I don't remember the specifics but maybe Mike L. or Keith P. remember what fixed it?

We are having a problem maintaining connectivity with Google Apps at several of our schools.  Students will connect and then the connection times out with students getting a “trying to connect” error message.  This is not a problem every time in that it has been sporadic over a period of time and it is disruptive.  Yesterday we experienced issues in three schools.   I have read the Google Apps Best Practices Networking Guide and I believe we are doing everything they recommend.  Has anyone else been experiencing this issue? If so, what corrective actions did you take?


Thank you,
