    I work at a large school and they are pushing for access to their My Documents from home. Problem is there are 1700 students and 200 odd staff, and they want this available to everyone.

    Ive got no experiance with VPN’s whatsoever, or even if Im thinking in the right direction here. From what I can gather, they arnt bothered about logging on remotely, just accessing documents…so would FTP be an option?

    We run ISA Server 2004 as our firewall and I believe that has either built in or add-in VPN capabilities?

    Is this scenario even recommended from a security standpoint, considering the amount of users involved. And the fact that some of them are school kids, who like nothing better than to spend their time attempting to hack and break anything we have in place
