Thanks Andrew. Point taken. Where would you go for more info on this sort of
security? In particular I'm trying to avoid unauthorised notebooks etc.
connecting to the network and then disappearing off home with sensitive data
from the server on their drives.

I was thinking about using SSH, but it seems like a lot of work to set up a
key for each user, and even then not foolproof.

Any suggestions welcome.
