Hi John, It's a K12LTSP on a PIII Redhat Fedora 2 and we use the box as 
a proxy server and apache web server - but not for mail (because I don't 
know how to set that up yet - apparently much harder to do). The 
teachers are able to access a mysql database of student assessments from 
home using this server. My background (as well as teaching) is web 
design so I'm OK with web/php stuff but Linux/ports/proxies are all 
relatively new.

Sudev's suggestions are straightforward enough and sound like what we 
need so I'll give them a go when next at school and see if that solves 
the problem.

Thanks also for the link. I can feel another learning curve coming on!
