My new principal says that at his last school, the IT guy had the server set up so that you could login from anywhere (like home) and have access to his documents (on the server). He claims that the last school had some kind of web interface. Hmmm.
I currently have a Ubuntu 6 server and use smbldap for students -- students save papers and such on the server. The main advantage of having a server, IMO, is DansGuardian. None of the teachers do this -- they all save their stuff locally. We use Google Apps for mail.
Is there a way to set it up so people have access from outside the building to their stuff? I only use open source, so if it costs anything, forget it. This is a small school (80 students) with a small budget. I am unsure how to proceed. Does anyone have any suggestions?
