MSN Messenger is not involved with file sharing i.e., the referred to
"access their files from home." He's talking about NBT shares.

Let's clarify something. There is Windows Messenger that the admin uses to
broadcast messages using his intranet. You'll
see it in Windows 2000/XP by opening the Microsoft Management Console and
clicking on Services. I believe what the students are using is MSN

What firewall? And where should I point it with 10 000 students.
Protect the Internet from me or me from the Internet. It is as
much harm on either side anyway which makes it useless.
135:139 SHOULD NOT be permitted in from or out to the Internet.
How should my students then be able to access their files from
home? Mapping shares over the Internet works and is easy to
use for the computer illiterate.
The problem lies in the messenger service. It should validate
messages using crypto and whatever means the administrator has
decided. (This may be possible but I 'Don't do Windows').
Instead of talking law call your Micrsoft support line and ask
for a better Messenger service.
