Firewall Problems and Solutions

Tony Karrer

I would love to hear back from people on this as I received a question around firewall problems and solutions that I've not heard as much in the past couple of years. Their issue is that they are running into customers who are tightening their firewall settings and it causes some of their content to not work. Are you finding issues with firewalls these days? Anyone having issues with Windows Media and firewalls? Do Flash players cause any problems with firewalls?

Blogging Inside or Outside the Corporate Firewall

Tony Karrer

I did suggest that they would either use a Wiki behind the firewall or use a password protected Wiki - because that's where the work product goes. If it's captured in a system inside the corporate firewall, it won't go outside. Stephen Downes commented on my recent post - Personal Work and Learning Environments (PWLE) - More Discussion and said - I am opposed to the trend coming from the corporate learning side of the house to treat PLEs as work tools.

Luis Suarez

A few weeks ago I put together the attached article for CMSWire where I tried to reflect on what I feel is the number #1 challenge for today’s corporations in terms of embracing a much more open, transparent, knowledge sharing culture through the emergence of social technologies behind the firewall.

Tools of your trade

Euen Semple

From the senior execs I worked with who winged at me about what IT wouldn't let them do, to that sinking feeling when trying to send a client a presentation and they say "your file doesn't work" or they can't work out how to get it through their organisation's firewall. Sadly I still encounter too many people who still feel that technology is being done to them.
