Help Nayland College unblock the Internet sign now

Hello there.
I have noted you're blocking access to some websites. While this will help internet traffic, I have noticed that you keep talking about people 'phishing' for information. Blocking all these sites means that students try different ways of accessing them, and so they will be using proxies etc. Some of these proxies are fake, and whilst they do the job of displaying "Bebo" or "Trademe", they can also log usernames/passwords and lead to identity fraud.

Blocking such sites is actually unsafe practice. Blocking other SSL ports like 10000 is also really bad, because some sites use different ports to distribute network traffic decreasing load to certain servers. This means half the sites we visit with SSL will be blocked ... and this is just a annoyance (another use for a public proxy anyone?).

And just to note, you can't block all the proxies on the net, because ANYONE with PHP or ASP scripting access can run one, which means even in the webpark there could be an ASP proxy in somebody's folder. The scary thing is that the traffic for all those sites won't show up on the server logs, or anything under the user which is using it, and instead will come under the server "Web".

Blocking sites annoys people. It creates problems. MOST servers can use traffic management, which means you caould have Bebo on the bottom of the traffic list. Then other services like VOIP etc. will still run smoothly. With improved Traffic management in place you make the students happier and are still getting the services you need at their full speed.

Basically, putting it in just one line... Unblock the Internet!
