Re: [suse-security] Offtopic (maybe): Proposal for school network
I'd need to know more about your security goals/threat model.

Are you worried about people breaking in via the internet?
Are you worried about kids beaking out and causing grief for others online?
I assume (well hope) that the school administrative network (i.e.
grades/etc) is seperate, or is it part of this network?
The external box will run a mail server to proxy email? If so are you using
sendmail/postfix, or?
What are the desktops running?
What is the purpose of this network? Teach kids to find info online? run
educational programs? Access to email?
Etc, etc. I can't really give you much help without sitting down, I suggest
you maybe hire SuSE for an hour or two of consulting, it will save you a
lot of grief in the long run.
