    G'day from me to Loki :biggrin

    So, can none of you Brits answer his question?

    I have read a lot of negative posts on this site regarding training providers but the question is, what is a good one?

    Hey, fair's fair, Pete - whilst we occasionally have to calm comments that may be deemed as derogatory about Training Providers in the UK, by the same token, we couldn't be seen to outwardly promote any given Provider.

    There are plenty of positive comments about Training Providers available in the Training and Development Forum.

    HTH :D

    Fair point Trip but although I am and always will be a Londoner, from here I can only tell people to avoid the Australian IT teaching companies :biggrin I am still having trouble getting money out of the institute I signed up with. It doesn't help that they no longer run training facilities because they have been taken over by other companies three times in as many years! Even though I paid $9500AU for all my MCSE studies, MOCs and exams, up front. I am on my own now and should have self studied from the start.

    I wasn't giving you a bad time, Pete. I was just kidding around. Sorry if I was out of line with my comment. :oops:

    No offence taken Trip :biggrin

    BTW, my head hurts at the moment. I am going through yet another ISA Transcender and I can tell you that it is heavy stuff :eek:

    Did you know that if you want to restrict VPNs by destination, you must disable PPTP (point to point tunneling protocol) because they use packet filters and packet filter can't be configured with specific destination sets! Therefore, you NEED to remove PPTP and use L2TP VPNs which don't use packet filters and can thus be configured with destination sets i.e. groups of computers/IP addresses etc.

    I am sitting the exam on Wed 23rd feb at 11:30am :eek:

    Back to the exam :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the heads up about VPNs, PPTP, and packet filtering. Just the stuff I tend to contemplate as I'm winding down my day. :blink :biggrin

    Good luck on the exam, Pete.
