comment IP Address shortage/Subnetting
thanks for the advice - this may not be the final setup but enough to keep us going for now, they are looking at moving to a new building to grow further at some point, will give me a chance to make sure the cabling is less of a mess too and hopefully get some investment at the time, at the moment everything is on £0 budget at the moment (annoying) so trying to make best of what we got and put in proper expansion plan when i have time to think it out, only at end of second week here and barely sat down very busy :P - Have a great weekend

comment IP Address shortage/Subnetting
Thanks, that would be more ideal. From a DHCP point of view, if i told it to hand out with subnet mask of 255.255.255.254 starting with 192.168.0.1 is it smart enough to work out the rest or do i have to have something telling it to route between the two? - Sorry if I sound daft, never had to get that deep into networking so far so this will be a good learning experience.

no we have 1-100 which handles all the printers and servers and unfiltered internet access, the dhcp and filtering is from 100-254. The network was inherited as i have just started a job here

comment Use of Append for Backup Exec 10.1d - Two Jobs to One Tape
thanks, managed to get a chance to set up a demo job and seems to work OK, so have configured tonight jobs to run the same with separate data/exchange backups, just wanted to sanity check it as I had never used append before :)

thanks, have marked this as answer for now, it will be quickest to implement and only needs to be run for certain users

thanks will take a look at this option, with the two network card setup presumeably ubuntu box would then become a socks4/5 firewall through which people connect? and then our router would just sit on different ip range and hooked up to 2nd interface on the unbuntu box?

thanks, this would indeed be a good idea, sadly we dont have any spare hardware, but worth considering if and when we upgrade the systems here and retire the old hardware

Thanks Ishmal, that is an option but as per original question it looks like its an on or off thing, not something i can time switch. - I appriciate all the comments with reards to a Useage Policy, That can and will be done, but it wont stop those who stray, and without constant monitoring they wont be caught

that is very true, but policy or not users will still do it, its wether the get caught or not. I could write one but the management and users would ignore it :/ - Though the management do want me to do something to prevent it
