What are you doing with PTP restrictions?  Are you just denying them if they
have PTP software installed.?

we use packetfence (which hooks up to snort) to automatically quarantine

Do they get a "first strike, fix it yourself" ? or just tagged, bagged
and forced to hit the helpdesk on first incident?


Just in case you had any doubts ;-) we are not nice guys when it comes
to students in residences!  First strike and you are in quarantine, but
they do release them if they call up and say they have fixed the
problem.  If address is re-quarantined then  they get charged $50.  We
also use this for enforcing p2p file sharing restrictions.
