Firewall Model

Postby techgy » Sun Aug 24, 2008 2:16 pm

Our stake is just beginning our efforts into setting up the Meetinghouse Internet.
When ordering the firewalls, is there a specific model we need to reference to order the Extended Firewall?

There is only one firewall that is shipped, and so if you just order the Church-managed firewall using the links from the Meetinghouse Internet page of clerk.lds.org, you will be fine.

I think what you mean by "Extended Firewall" is the LDS Extended Access filtering option. But you don't need to worry about that while ordering. That is a configuration setting that you will specify when you call the Global Service Desk at the time you activate the firewall.

Alan,

I had understood that the hardware was to be ordered through the local FM group.
Is this true or do I order it for our stake through the clerk's site?

I don't know where you heard that, but it is not correct. The firewall can only be ordered online from Distribution Services. Go to the Internet Meetinghouse Introduction page, and scroll down to near the bottom where you will find the "Ordering" section. There is a link to the ordering page, which will require a unit login. The login process verifies that your stake is actually authorized to place the order (only stakes in US & Canada are currently authorized).

You can't even order the firewall over the phone -- I know because I tried.
