We have more and more students who are using their laptop on our 
network.  This situation increase the risks of computer security problems 
because we can't control what is installed and used on these machines.

I would like to know if your organization has established some specific 
regulations on what is (or what is not) permitted on your network   ((e.g. 
what types of services (web, ftp, etc.) your students can activate on their 
laptops when they access your network resources)).    Also what technical 
devices are you using to avoid some type of problems.
