comment File and Database encryption
I did not know that as I am fairly new to this site, thank you for that... though I would like to see if there are any other options out there before I close it. I do have another one that needs to be closed though. Thanks =)

Ya there are only 3 of us so I don't see that being a big issue, but essentially two users cannot access this at the same time?

Also, if that's the case would you just be creating the app to encrypt the data with the latest and greatest encryption schemes? Because if you are going to use AD to set permissions you could technically just do that on a word document though I do not think that would be very secure. Thanks for the feedback!

That sounds really good, if he allotted enough time to build an application this would be a great approach. In all reality even building this is PHP or java would not be a complicated tasks, but you know how it goes sometimes the boss just wants something now. Do you have any good sites about building apps and integrating active directory into usage rights? Really all it would be is setting the permissions on running the app right?

That seems very simple and lightweight, have you noticed any potential security issues with this software? This is essentially exactly what I need =)

great! GNU Privacy Guard sounds great. I am mainly looking for file encryption, but looking at the available options.

comment Switches and the amount of load
or should I say with switches core, a, b, c, d you can connect core to a and b, then connect c to a,b,d and d to a,b,c ensuring that more paths are created and if one link fails they can still make it to the core switch.

comment Switches and the amount of load
=) Thanks, the main problem lies in the pipeline we have here in Florida and our main hub in North Carolina a measly 3MB connection :'( So I sought out to make here as efficient as possible. Interesting though with link aggregation which merely requires hooking up multiple connections between the switches and configuring them to identify these additional paths, I could increase the flow of traffic from areas switch after switch away from my core switch. With this you can do it in any configuration, correct? meaning 3 switches can connect core to a and b, then a connects to b?

comment 3COM Switches that have 1000Base-X SFP ports
Thanks for you feedback! Just out of curiosity when you say "long distances" practically speaking what is the point in which using fiber versus cat5 will make a differences?

From a little reading I also found that a lot of companies use these slots for connecting servers to switches instead of using regular ports because it increases speed, which leads me to believe that between switches it would increase speed, but I feel like it would just be bottle necked as soon as you hit cat5 again.

So basically its just used for faster connection between switches? With switches that have auto MDIX and can just use regular LAN cable will you notice that much of a difference between switches? Where I work we have four switches that have SFP capabilities and I'm wondering if its worth getting the fiber cables and rerunning to the switches not located in the server room.
