Hi all,

We're trying to get the old Cisco IPSec VPN Client to work on an ASA 5506 with IOS 9.7. This has never been an issue for us in the past. We realize that Cisco wants everyone to use AnyConnect but we still have to support the IPSec client.

- We have our VPN Pool assigned on the outside interface.
- Our access list looks correct.
- Our NAT statements look correct.
- The PSK is correct -- when we attempt to log in, we get past the PSK and right to the user login.
- We managed to get the L2L tunnels working OK.

Sanitized config posted below. Could really use help with this.

I want to connect Android and iOS apps to a MySQL database.

Is it possible to secure the API with cryptography?

Wouldn't it be more secure to use a static IP address and only accept remote connections from that address?

Are there providers that do this to where we could have 10 connections on one app or would it be easier to deploy a virtual server and connect the phones to it?
Dear EE experts,

We would like to ask if this is possible, How to create icon on home screen of iPhone/iPad?
Using Google App or Chrome App, and NOT Safari.
Because the website that we want to use doesn't work well with Safari...

Thank you!

I am replacing a cracked screen iPhone with a new iPhone with same model. Iphone 7 plus.

I backed up old iPhone with iTunes and once completed plugged in new iPhone and restored the entire phone. The restore goes fine without any issues. All settings and emails and photos etc are transferred fine.

This one Game app that is installed though does not contain the game progress and purchases. The game is signed into Game Center with the same Apple ID. The old iPhone is at an advanced stage of the game with some purchases but the new iPhone shows as if this game is brand new installed with no settings or game level progress.

I checked the storage on the old phone by going to settings and then under storage ( not iCloud storage ) and under manage storage selecting this game it shows total document and data worth 145.2 MB while on the restored new iPhone it only shows 35 MB.

In brief this game progress data is not restored. I tried backing up again and restoring to new phone again but same issue!

Since I don't have much iCloud data available I could not do the backup using iCloud but I shouldn't have to as I backed up all on local computer. Do not want to loose 5 month worth of game progression before returning old iPhone to apple.

Can anyone help you out with a possible solution ?

Thank you in advance !
I would like to know where or if I could purchase a license for ios 15.2 for the above product? or would purchasing a smartnet agreement be better?
What is the default font used within the iPhone mail app when composing & replying to emails?
I need help for a very weird problem ..
1 exchange account configured on a iphone 6, mail app on ios, works fine. Exchange 2010 sp3.
Owa, Outlook ok.
Yesterday the app says "Cannot get mail - The connexion to the server failed", impossible to sync emails...
No change to any system, other ios or android device works fine.
I try different solutions :
- reset password
- check the inheritage in security ad tab (already ticked)
- delete all devices in mobile device list
- delete the account , recreate on the iphone
- Activesync enable

I can send an email or read other emails but i get the error every time I try to sync new mail...
Did someone ever had the same problem ??
Thank you

A user is using corporate MDM-managed iPad & reading his corporate emails
from this device (that is in encrypted partition) using MobileIron's Email+, a
more secure form of email client compared to Apple's native email client.

Now this user requests for 2 common mailboxes to be configured on his iPad
so that he could read emails sent to his group.  Our MDM admin told us Email+
can't support the additional mailboxes (I'm not sure if this is true but I heard
the admin chap has logged a case with MobileIron).

What are the risks?  Can we create Exchange rules (as the emails had to
go to Exchange first before going to Email+ (or any other email clients) to
auto-forward one copy of emails sent to common mailbox to this user.

We had previously migrated users from Apple's email client to Email+ for
security reason, so don't want to go back to the old way of using Apple
email client
Hi, I have a fullscreen html WebApp , and after upgrading to IOS11, I only get a black screen when calling  the camera - before the upgrade it was working perfectly - any ideas on how to circumvent this ?

It looks like I'm not the only one affected - but maybe some of you Experts have an idea or two :) ?

We had an app created for our company a couple of years ago and now it's horribly out of date and we're getting a message off it that it needs to be updated to iOS11.  Due to a high staff turnover, who created the app has been lost and we don't have anyone to contact to get this pull off the Apple and Google stores.

Can anyone provide any guidance as to what to do in this instance - all of the information I've searched deals with developers removing their own apps but nothing about how to do it when the developer is gone.

Thanks in advance for any input on this.
I have a user that has recently been unable to use the 'Open in' feature on their IOS (Iphone 6) device.
When opening a PDF from an email, they have the option normally of being able to select the icon in the top right of the screen to show apps that the attachment can open with.
I have selected the more.... option and not found any apps in there.

Is there a fix that anyone has found, or a setting on the iphone i may have missed that has been accidentally turned on\off?

Additional information:

  • Currently using the GOOD for Enterprise app for Corporate email delivery
  • The feature has previously been available
  • The Iphone is fully updated with all IOS updates.

Please let me know if there's any additional information that may assist with this. The person is an executive and i am desperately trying to find an answer, having already spent days poring over forums and not finding a solution.

Many thanks.

My spouse often update the IOS when available but for the
last 6 months, the screen is often not responding: pressing
the power side button to off the screen for 1-2 secs & then
press the button the button again often helps recover
the response of the touch screen but not always.

Is this a hardware (ie touch screen ) issue or IOS issue
& if IOS, reinstall all over will help?

I ever tried pressing the round Exit button & power button
together for 7 secs to reset but this did not resolve the
I have been attempting to fix an issue my website has been having with autoplay and mobile devices. I currently have a little beep that plays when loading the next page. The only way the website can tell if it is supposed to beep is via loading the next page, so I can't just play the beep every time the user jumps from one page to the next. My goal is to get this working on iPads with the latest version of iOS.

I am aware that the <audio> tag's autoplay feature is turned off for mobile devices, requiring user interaction to play audio. So I have been working with Javascript to try to get a beep to play.

So far here are two of my attempts so far:

function beep() {
           new  Audio("App_Themes/Default/Images/Ding.mp3" )).play();

Open in new window

And this is another attempt:
function beep(){
            var aud = document.createElement("iframe");
            aud.setAttribute('src', "App_Themes/Default/Images/Ding.mp3");
            aud.setAttribute('width', '1px');
            aud.setAttribute('height', '1px');
            aud.setAttribute('scrolling', 'no');
            aud.style.border = "0px";

Open in new window

Both of which work on desktop browsers, but not mobile. So I guess my question is, is it possible to get around the user interaction limitation mobile browsers set? Is there another way I should be doing this?
I have set my Android phone to sync with myemail@outlook.com and my desktop Outlook 365 to sync to the same account and even though both seem to show they are syncing, the contact lists are different. Can anyone help me fix.

To expand a little, in case it is relevant,
1. I have two yahoo IMAP accounts in my sync list, one of which is the default
2. I have 3 other Microsoft Exchange email addresses on different accounts that I am syncing too, PLUS myemail@Outlook.com
3. I am not trying to sync Outlook.com emails, just the contacts because that it's the only one I thought Outlook would sync with
4. The other 3 Exchange accounts seem to be syncing fine
Our iOS devices are loaded with Maps.me so that we can use offline maps. We have a spreadsheet with a series of hyperlinks that will launch Maps.me and display the desired location. The Apple version of the hyperlink looks something like "ge0://_X-mwmlX3T/52015_Wood_Pol". If I SMS this link to an iOS device it will work as it should but when we try to launch it from a hyperlink in an Excel spreadsheet we get a message that says "The link address may be invalid, or you may not have permission to open it". I know it's not invalid because it works when copied and SMS'd so it's an issue of permission. Is there any way to get an iOS device to allow a hyperlink launch an app like this, or is that just too much for Apple products to cope with?

What are the steps to add another user's calendar to an iPhone 6 (with iOS 10.3.3)?

Office 365 is being used to host both of these email accounts.

Is there any way of doing this other than adding the other user's Office 365 account to this user's iPhone (and choosing only to sync the other user's Office 365 calendar? This is a security risk since we don't want the user with the iPhone to go into the account settings and be able to download and reply to the other user's emails).

Referring to above link, does it mean iOS prior to Ver 10.2.1 is not affected or versions after 10.2.1 is affected?

Last query:
does Apple releases vulnerabilities quarterly, 6-monthly or yearly & where can we find this information?

On my Oppo & Note2 phones, without a SIM card, I can share out a wireless hotspot
for 2 computers to connect to (to do ftp/sftp or files transfers) but on my iPhone 6+
& iPhone 5S, that hotspot enabling button is greyed out even if I insert an expired
SIM card (or a SIM card without data plan).

I often 'sync' or do data transfers (to backup my pst) from my corporate laptop
(which disables USB port & I can't set/change IP on the LAN port but Wifi works):
but I usually brg the iPhone to office.  Is there any way or any apps on IOS that
could go around this?
There's eicar for Android & Windows.  Is there any for IOS?

Appstore doesn't show eicar for IOS  tho playstore has it.

I need to test an Mobile Threat Prevention product for IOS.
Any other test files/IOCs I can use for IOS to test this new MTP called Lookout?
Dear Sir,

I had an iPhone with ios version 10.3.3. Recently, my iPhone is out of space. I have checked my storage information. It shows my notes app used around 800Mb. I connect my iPhone with the PC software iExplorer and I found that the deleted notes are over 100+. I understand there's mechanism the phone will not delete the notes which within 30 days. But why the iExplorer still showing the notes still there. How to remove those "deleted" notes permanently.

Please advise.

Thank you.
with regards,
