Joining Kindle Fire to Domain
Posted on 2012-03-28
I am not an IT person but am helping out at a local school trying to maintain their computers and network. We have a server running Windows Server 2003, using active directory, about 100 desktops and laptops with a majority running Win XP Pro. The desktops are all hard wired and the laptops are wireless via several access points throughout the school. We are also required to have an Internet content filter. We are using a unit called Comsifter. I have been recently asked by some teachers to enable them to use a Kindle Fire or an iPad on the network to gain access to the internet. I have the instructions (although I have not tried it yet) on how to get the MAC addresses from these devices to use in the access points and how to load the WEP code on the devices. However, I have no idea how to get the units to join the domain and have the user log in so the content filter knows who they are and which set of filters to use based on their user name. Is this even possible? If so, how do I get it done?
