So I have a non-profit client that is also a school and they are in dire need of a new CFS. Currently they are using a Sonicwall but it is having problems and they just want it gone.
My problem is, I’m having a hard time finding an affordable solution that checks some major boxes they need checked.
The students are using Chromebooks, those Chromebooks are assigned a static IP address by the Sonicwall and the CFS rules are established for their IP range. So being able to replicate this is a requirement.
Secondly, for everyone else in the Windows domain the Sonicwall’s CFS rules are applied by the user that logs in. So this is also a requirement.
I actually have a used Barracuda 310 sitting here that I took out of another client that didn’t want it anymore. I know it would do the job, but they would hate the maintenance costs of it.
I’m looking for suggestions from people who have installed CFS systems for schools, what they used, and if it would support the aforementioned needs.
