Interesting... I shall forward this to my school's admin.

Some of you may recall me writing a report on how Open Source could be
used at my school. This has since gone to the head, but the admin
immediately jumped on the idea of a free IDS (he'd never heard of one).

But the first thing he asked was, can you get one way CAT5?

Thanks Tony,
