School district punches through firewall

My colleague Tim Greene has an interesting look in this week’s issue of Network World at the Imperial County Office of Education’s efforts pass IP videoconferencing traffic through restrictive firewalls. The problem with IP videoconferencing is that it uses many different ports and firewalls, which usually pass through standard e-mail, HTTP and FTP traffic, do not have these ports open to enable conferencing. To solve the problem, the school district is using gateway technology from Ridgeway Systems to help pass videoconferencing traffic through the firewall without compromising security. If you’re facing similar issues, this is a must read.
