At our organization we are utilizing a Aruba wireless system with 24 access points. They have always worked great. We have 4 wireless networks, with all of them be password secured except for 1 called "GUEST"

We have not done any configuration changes for about a year on the network.

Out of the blue for some reason Ipads are not able to connect to our guest network, however they can connect to any other network that has a password.

All of our other devices can connect to the guest network, in fact my phone next to me is currently connected.

It came out of the blue last week, so I'm guessing it was a update on the user's ipads.

These are not company ipads, so honestly I could say I don't care about the devices haha.. but that would be bad of me, and it's my job to make sure everyone is happy =]

I want them and our guest to be able to use the ipads on our network.

Has anyone else had this issue?

Our user's iphones connect just fine as well.

IT HAS to be something with the Ipads. Because it's only them, and it only started last week or so..and apparently there was a update around then I'm told. I don't know because I don't use them. I'm not a Apple person. I've done the first normal steps, forget the network, renew DHCP, etc. and it's still a no go.

Any help?

I was leaning towards the Plantronics Voyager Pro HD.  

It features A2DP.

However, it is NOT bluetooth 4.0.  

Does that matter?  I read that BT 4 is not compatible with BT 3 or 2, although if the device supports both, then it's fine.

I want to use the same headset for my Galaxy S3 as well as my Nano 7th generation.  I really like the over-the-ear form factor of my old Plantronics Voyager, and I like how the rubber part that goes in your ear doesn't detach when I put the headset in my pocket.   Any other suggestions?

Thanks,

I've been searching for some way to calculate expected disk imaging durations but I can't find anything useful. Here's my scenario:

Mac OS X image = 16.5 GB
One (1) Client NIC = 1 Gbps
Imaging server (Deploy Studio) NIC = 1 Gbps

I would like to come up with a formula for determining what the duration should be for this one client. Then I would like to be able to add clients and see how it affects the duration.

Thanks,

All,
I have an exchange 2007 server which supplies emails to our company and our mobile devices.  What we are missing is the ability to open internal document links sent by email from our file server on mobile devices.  
I have tried this with:
Standard email account
Exchange OWA
Using Cisco Anyconnect VPN

None of these are successful.  I am able to connect with the VPN and then with a file browser app get to my filserver and open any document (sort of like a corporate private drop box) but this isn't what the company is looking for.

Has anyone been able to do this or have any ideas I might try?

Thanks,

I’ve been testing some Airport extremes that I took from a client’s home to test in our office. I connected them to our office network which has a Mac Mini and configured them as two wireless access points on the network (with the same SSID but on a different channel)

Everything seems fine, however when they are running on our network. We start to get network problems e.g. if we leave a ping running on the network to say Google.com, and then we turn on the airport extremes (even just one of them) we start to drop more and more packets.

What could be causing this?

The computer fell at least 4' to the hard floor.  The glass covering the screen and the screen are both cracked.  When the machine is powered on there are no sounds and or video displayed.  I have removed battery and purged the power.  When reinserted the Mac boot sounds and Apple are displayed but it quickly goes away.  The power light then goes off then back on bright then dim for a bit.  This process repeats.  I can see that the CPU fan turns briefly while the light is on then stops when its off.  It would appear that its trying to turn on but keeps shutting off then back on.  

I have reseated the RAM.

Thanks in advance.

The title explains the basic core of my question, but I should give some background about the scenario and why I'm asking. The steps I took, directly related to this question are steps 9, 10 and 11, below.

-------------------------------------------------------------
I helped a parent "split" their son off of their iTunes account in order to get him a new iPod on his own iTunes Store account. (This is a typical scenario that I think parents make the mistake to do: The parent puts their own iTunes account on the kid's ipod and sync with parent's PC. This gives a lot of control, but combines child and parent music and apps which is not good and is difficult to split)

The best procedure I found to do that while still retaining music and apps purchased for the son was this:
1- make sure Son's old iPod is synced to Parent's PC.
2- Unbox new iPod, connect it to USB on Parent PC, set up the ipod by restoring recent backup to son's iPod.
3- Get HomeGroup sharing working between the parent's and son's PCs.
4- Share Parent's Music folder
5- Make sure both PCs are updated to latest iTunes version
6- Consolidate iTunes library on Parent PC: "File > Library > Organize Library... > Consolidate Files."
7- Copy "iTunes Media" folder from Parent PC to Son's PC into Son's "iTunes" folder, let Windows combine the folders. (This assumes Son's iTunes is blank, unused)
8- Open iTunes, let it find media.
9- Authorize Son's PC iTunes with Parent's iTunes account. (Now he should be …

Hi Experts -- I have an iMac here in the shop that is showing the question mark folder icon when it turns on. I am unable to access the diagnostic utility by holding down the D key during startup as I typically do. I can, however, get it to boot to a Snow Leopard disc but none of the diagnostic utilities are available (greyed out).

Any thoughts? I have some suction cups coming in the mail so I can take a look at the hard drive and connections and I'm hoping that's what the problem is.

I am waiting for my iPhone 5s to ship so in the mean time I am thinking about changing up my case options. I bought the gold model so I like the way it looks but a lot of the phone just cover up the look of the iphone, which I like a lot.

So I was thinking about getting one of the high quality films for the front and back and then get a nice bumper. Any suggestions on how well this works or doesn't work?

Any suggestions on good quality bumpers? I looked at a few that were flimsy plastic looking to me, I wouldn't mind a aluminum bumper if they make them.

Any other new case ideas that work well? I try not to get anything too bulky and cheap, I just hate covering up a $800 phone with some crappy $5 case.

One of my users has a MacBook Air bootcamp loaded and running Win 7 64 bit Pro.  Everything is just plan perfect on the machine except one issue.  I am running Exchange 2010 with an Exchange 2003 environment.  I have configured this a few times with no issues.  I can get and send emails just fine from my MacBook Air but when this user leaves the local network he cannot access his Exchange account.  Any ideas would be great as I have gone through multiple solution sets short of a full reload.  Thought maybe the Apple drivers needed to be updated but any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I basically have the same problem as described at - https://discussions.apple.com/message/7605627

Got a new iPhone and want to transfer my favorite (contacts) to the new phone.  All contacts seem to be there, just not my favorite selections.  Is there an easy way to do this, or do I have to go back to the dreaded Apple store?

I come from the PC world and am used to configuring wireless access points many times. However I had to do an Airport Express and Airport Extreme at  the same time within the same household.

This was actually harder for me as you have to use a utility to configure, never the less it’s not hard to pick up.

However one question, are they designed to have the same SSID name?
In some houses I do this, and set them on a different channel so the residents only have to worry about 1 SSID and password.
However with the Airport express and extreme, in this case I’m not sure if I should give them the same SSID as they will be reasonably close to each other.

I was thinking maybe easier to give them different names and just tell the residents so use whichever is strongest depending on which room they are in.

Welcome opinions on this.

A friend asked me and I don't know the first thing about macs.
They made a 'group' in their address book under icloud.  in there are several people's email addresseses.

How do you get the group into one of the lines - to , cc, bcc?

Googling, I found you can type the group name, hit enter and then you get each email address.

but some sites say you can drag the group up to the to, cc or bcc line to do the same thing.

when I do that, the icon for the group falls back to the address book without populating the address line.

and highlighing the group name on the left of the address book and pressing to, cc or bcc in the address book, I get just one name of the group that happened to be highlighted.\

thanks!

Hi,

We have a US guest who wants to be able to watch US TV shows from here in the UK. In particular, they mentioned having a “Showtime” account that they want to use in the UK. We are told this can be achieved by using an Apple TV and getting a US IP address and there are services geared around doing this.
Can anyone point me in the direction of how this is achieved?
Thanks in advance.

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

             I recently ordered an Apple Ipod Touch as a Christmas present for a friend's son from BestBuy.com.  The link to exactly what was order is at http://www.bestbuy.com/site/apple-174-ipod-touch-174-16gb-mp3-player-5th-generation-latest-model-silver/6933847.p?id=1218814988442&skuid=6933847&sellerId=  for review and inspection.  When I got the Ipod Touch, I only received the unit itself without any accessories which brings me to the point of this upcoming question.  What are the required accessories for this particular Ipod Touch?  I am assuming it will require at least a recharger for its battery and perhaps a case to help keep it protected.  At any rate, if someone could review the information describing the purchased Ipod Touch within the link given provided within this post in order to determine the required accessories for it, the feedback will be very much appreciated.  I hope that whatever accessories are required can be easily located and purchased locally like at Walmart or perhaps Radio Shack.  

               In the meantime, I will look forward to reviewing any shared input to this concern.  

               Thank you.

               George

I have users that occassionaly get locked out of AD when not in our office. They said they did not try to remotely log in, so the only common factor is they both have Iphones with our corporate email. We use Exchange 2003.  Any ideas what could be causing this?

What do I need to look at to get this set up?

I have a user's iphone 4 (v6) getting upwards of 4 million invites on his calendar.  This just started.  He is on Exchange 2010, and his mail (Outlook and OWA) is working.  I had him turn off the calendar toggle, delete all calendars, and turn on the toggle.  No Joy.  I had him delete his account completely, and rebuild.  No Joy.

Any ideas?

I am asking for my 85 year old sister who is using a Mac leopard and has had it for more than 5 years.  She feels she wants to upgrade to the newest -->> probably she has the money to burn or just that her friends are josting with their new models.  
Can the experts please suggest some upgrade solutions and also give me the links because I am an IBM user and have no clue on the Mac
thank u.

Hi Guys/Gals,

I’m looking for the iPhone 4s SHSH blobs for IOS 6.1.3. Ever since the new IOS release my phone has had endless issues with Wi-Fi, then it works then it stops.

1. I have tried everything.
2. Reset Network Settings.
3. Reset and erase all settings.
4. Restoring from iTunes.
5. Zip Lock bag and into a fridge for 10 -15min (I actually have better idea.. use a water bottle with frozen water in it and put is on top of your phone the phone cools down instantly and no moisture will get into your phone.

Now back to my original issue I need the SHSH blob file so that I can rebuild the IOS 6.1.3 restore file. You can read up more of what exactly I want to do from here...

http://www.iphonehacks.com/2013/10/downgrade-ios-7-ios-6-1-3-using-ifaith.html


When I select to locate SHSH blob files from Cydia, it detects my phone but no results gets returned from the Cydia servers.

It should look something like this..
blob
I get "None" with a tick box to select the NONE
blob none
Note you can no longer downgrade using iTunes because the older versions are no longer signed. I am aware of this but I’m looking for a work around.

If anyone has a known working solution that you are willing to share, please I want to downgrade from IOS 7.0.3 to IOS 6.1.2/3

Thanks

I am saving video footage to a hard drive from camera cards. I will be doing this quite extensively. I have a last gen Macbook and I'll be copying data off the card to to the drive. I only have USB 2.0 ports in this.

The Macbook doesn't have a slot for the camera card, so I'll be using a USB card reader.

What will be the approximate data transfer rate. Let's say I'm transferring 10 GBs. How long will it approximately take. How long would it take if I had a Macbook Pro with an adapter to go Thunderbolt to Firewire 800?

I'm trying to decide if I need to upgrade my laptop, or if I can make due with the Macbook.
