comment Making terminal session on production server look unique

comment SSH to a computer that will then SSH to another computer

comment Are IP addresses “trivial to forge”?
Something could stop you. Your ISP could setup egress filters on their routers to not allow packets to be forwarded unless the source IP address is actually belongs to that network.

comment Not Letting Users Prints Certain Powerpoint Files
@bobber205, instead of disabling printing of some file types. Perhaps you need to find a solution that reports cost of the job to the student before the print job is accepted by the printer?
