The San Luis Government ended the year with all elementary students in the provincial 1to1 model. More than 58 000 students across the geography of San Luis enjoy their computers. And to keep small accessing inappropriate material on the Web, from Highway Information (AUI) developed an application that allows San Luis kids computers to connect to any Internet network operating and maintaining filters content.

While the automatic selection of content, which prevents access to inappropriate material to children applies since the plan started in the All Kids Network 3 years ago, the pattern was different. Laptops were set to sail only in the provincial network of Internet AUI extends throughout the province and allow the free connection, even through Wi-Fi. Thus, from the Data Center of the highway controlled access material that could be laptops.

But with the massive proliferation of computers became necessary that the machines could also be connected to private networks. This led to the supply of some traders who were paid for "unlock" or "liberate" the engine of the original system that ensured the safe navigation in the AUI. At the same time, there appeared several problems with the machines, as to "liberate" for networking service outside the province were left without protection against many viruses, which in some cases were left unusable.

To address this problem, the University of La Punta (ULP), an institution that runs the AUI, went to work a team of specialists to develop the application that allows browsing machines on private networks without disadvantages or risks. The director of the AUI, Jose Jerez, explained that demand for computers connecting to any network was manifested primarily by private schools and parents of students who had private Internet service at home.

"The machines are joined to a domain, a group of servers that control the PC, and so they load the new configuration. But for the application to be operational, the boys have to connect at least once a public network of San Luis. They can do at school or on the antenna nearest Wi-Fi network in the province, "he said Jerez. In this regard, adding that every 3 months from the Data Center are downloaded updates to all machines.

As for laptops 1 to 1 model, the director of the Highway stressed that "not suitable" technicians carry the private sector, because this has brought a number of problems on computers. He added that to address any issues are directed to the technical support of the provincial government, which will work even on holidays.
