Does your newsserver have Stuarts post on it? It doesn't sound like you
saw it.

The one explaining how to configure the list of trusted servers that it
will use transparent authentication for. Firefox can do transparent
NTLM - I tihnk it can also do transparent SPNEGO GSSAPI stuff too (I
haven't tested that yet).

Yes. Easily.

Use a shell script to make the appropriate change to the user's config
file.

The other option is to deploy a version of Firefox that has your custom
setting already set.

The default settings are good default settings.

T'was the Thu, 23 Feb 2006 22:43:24 +1300 when I remembered Dave Doe
<(E-Mail Removed)> saying something like this:

>If it's Windows Server - about five minutes to configure Group Policy in

Would it not be possible to include a batch file that modified the
Firefox config file for each user as they logged in?

Then again, it's another batch file to run at login.

About 5 minutes.

If you can't figure out how, you shouldn't be a network techie, even
for schools...

You dont get it do you.
We don't have to configure IE at all.
And MS supports its configuration in group policy.
That means IE is better
I am the only one who uses FF
But now IE7 is almost as good we will use that instread.

Ay? It should be configured in a school environment. It should be
locked right down.

>And MS supports its configuration in group policy.

Does it now? That's a pretty bold ascertion.

You really are a fool if you are using BETA software in a production
environment. Unfortunately it is your client's that will have to pay
the price, but hopefully some of them will realise just how stupid a
move that is.

That's because, TaDuh, Micro$oft creates both IE AND IIS; and both of them
are as secure as water passing through a cullinder(sp?).

No - that means Micro$oft wrote IE and is not interested in making it easy
for people to use any software other than Micro$oft's software.

Never heard of a cullinder
Is that made of solid metal?

MS has put a huge effort into security in recent times and it can be
seem in the type of products now being offered by them e.g. a server
core with no Gui.

For *anything* that runs on Windows platform a template can be
provided in group policy/system policy to enable setting to be
configured.

Hiwever most third party stuff seems to use their own config or not
bother at all

I use FF but where have the FF people bothered to look at unattended
setup and configuring multiple machines all at once on a network

Only very recently has even a helpfile been available in FF releases
