A blog about me, my doings and everything I think deserves attention.

my schools network policy

Public networks need restrictions. That’s a common rule of thumb and it makes sense to block services like FTP.

HOWEVER that does not make sense when you’re trying to educate Multimedia designers and web integrators, also it does not make any sense to kick students out the door of the IT-department that point out that every of their exams has somehow been influenced by not really being able to use the schools facilities as a workspace, but more as a hangout for drinking coffee, because the network is in your way.

Since it is part of my curriculum I demand opening of the SSH and FTP services for publishing and code version control.

If you want to know which kind of school would prevent their students from higher productivity, it’s Hansenberg icon wink my schools network policy

    Sounds like once again someone set up rules he doesn’t understand. This in becoming wayy too common these days.
    Are you not in Kolding anymore, or why do you have contact to that school?

    I know what you mean. I dont get why some schools block ports .. not even ftp.
    But i like it when SSH is open, i just make an ssh-tunel and do everything though that.
