A tablet computer is a mobile computer with a touchscreen display, circuitry, and battery in a single device. Tablets come equipped with sensors, including cameras, a microphone, and an accelerometer, and the touchscreen display uses the recognition of finger or stylus gestures replacing the usage of the mouse and keyboard. They usually feature on-screen, pop-up virtual keyboards for typing. Tablets may include physical buttons for basic features such as speaker volume and power, and ports for network communications and battery charging. Tablets are typically larger than smartphones or personal digital assistants.

I've been using OPENDNS on my Netgear R7000 for over a year - it successfully filters out undesirable items from all computers on our home network.  A few days ago I noticed that it still blocks when using tablets (iPads / iPhones) but is no longer work on any hard-wired computer.  Been trying to troubleshoot this for days - no luck.  Have tried all suggestions in their forums (https://support.opendns.com/hc/en-us/articles/227988707-Why-OpenDNS-is-Only-Working-on-One-or-Some-of-my-Computers-Devices#scenario2) - no luck.  Anyone else had this issue?

We have a shop that uses Topaz Model: T-LBK462-BSB-R signature pads in a Remote Desktop environment. We have 7 total signature pads and two of the pads freeze up and stop working when the software tries to call the signature pad on COM9. The other 5 signature pads are configured exactly the same and are working with no issues.

The OS that the pads are working on are either Windows 7 x64 or Windows 10 x64 and can't seem to figure out why the other two pads freeze up and stop working. I can login to the remote server once and use the DEMO software remotely and it works, but every time after that we have to force-close the software and re-establish the connection.

Just wondering if anyone knows why these two pads may be timing out and not working, or why the COM ports become non-responsive. I've tried swapping computers, and signature pads and the pads work on other computers with no issues. I have the latest USB drivers and BIOS and have wiped and reloaded windows to try and resolve the issue.

I did some testing on the server with HyperTerminal and found that I wasn't able to connect to COM9 right away, but after I run "change port /query" on the server in the command prompt, I was able to connect to COM9 with HyperTerminal with no issues and run a test on the sig pad. Why would running "change port /query" make the redirected port available?

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Thank you!

I had this question after viewing delphi intraweb upload file.

I have an Intraweb app  (Delphi XE4) which successfully uses IWFileUploader. User can upload a file to the application's dedicated folder if they access the app via a windows pc.

Problem is that one of the users has a Samsung Android tablet which they use to access the web application, and IWFileUploader doesn't work.
Ideally they'd be able to take a photo with the tablet, and upload it to the Intraweb app's web directory.

Is this even possible?
What's the best way to proceed?

Currently our MDM policy blocks our corporate-issued iPads
from accessing iTunes (to prevent data leakage/loss).

There's a number of senior staff who wants to use the
iPads to project out via projector for presentations.  However
our MDM (think it's MobileIron) will enable iTunes access if
we enable this projector access via the iPad's lightning port
(which we use an adaptor to connect to the projector : I
 presume it's the projector's HDMI).

How can we allow projector connection & yet block iTunes
access?  

I'm assuming the data leakage/loss will occur when these
staff bring the iPads home to connect their lightning port
to their home laptop's USB (via an adaptor).  

Any IOS apps that's smart enough to detect if it's projector
traffic or iTunes traffic?  or any way to block sync'ing or
communication with iTunes from these iPads?

Hello.

I need your help. We have a TabletPC (Windows 10) in a domain (DC:Windows Server 2008) and we need to block everything on an account called Tablets that logs on it. Everything has to be disabled, denied, blocked except one running application.
I mean no Internet, no Search function (even if I press windows button and then I write), no CMD, no Windows 10 panels, no Action Center panel, no Control Panel, just nothing.

I need to have this TabletPC in state that user will be able only to run one application and switch user/restart. Nothing else. User must not have any other access.

I appreciate any suggestions... registry changes, policy changes etc. Anything that could help me.

Thank you.

For example, these...

There machines have dual OSs - Windows 10 and Android 5.1, so they look idea as a happy-medium between a Surface Pro-type machine and an Android tablet, at half the price of either one.

But I'm a bit concerned about it being Android 5.1, wereas 6.0 has now been out for 18 months.

Does anyone know if the company are planning to release Android 6.0 firmware for this machine?

Also, any feedback or comments you otherwise have for this device would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Dell Venue 5055 Pro.
Windows 10 32Bit Home.

This tablet has the rear light on all the time.  I have searched and don't see any info on how to resolve.  So I am coming to the Experts instead of wasting hours on google.

If anyone has anything for me to try.  Let me know.

Thanks very much in advance.

I am interested in shared iPads for our users, locked down by MDM, but one of the key requirements is that multiple users can be used, that is the MDM platform needs to support multi-user logon.

Does anyone know of an MDM that can do this?

Hi,

We use FiftyThree paper in our iPhones & iPads.  We try to find it for our tablets and windows 10 devices, but it seems that they only have for IOS platform.  That said, does any EE has recommendation for an apps similar to Paper 53 but for  Windows?

We are a Citrix shop with XenApp 6.5. I only have 200 devices, but over 325 licenses are being consumed. Most by licenses named HTML-XXXX-XXXX, where the X's are random numbers. What are these and how do I eleminate them? I've been revoking licenses daily but I need to solve the root cause here.

I've started purchasing per-user licenses as I will be gradually switching to user from device, but those aren't being issued either, likely because I'm in per-device mode. What is the best way to eliminate these HTML-XXXX-XXXX licenses and transition to the per-user mode?

What are your thoughts on the Surface Pro series? I don't like the single USB port and find the included stylus a waste of time. Performance-wise they are pretty quick but with my work, we've had a few that needed to be blown away already. I've run into issues where it won't recognize the keyboard, etc. When everything works great, they are pretty cool, though.

But for the customers, Surface Laptop is the latest product for Surface product line offering and it is my impression that MS has already stopped the research and development of Surface Pro as there is no Surface Pro 5.

Is there a piece of code that makes a website compatible in all the main browsers, ISO Phones, Android Phones, and tablets?

I am after some suggestions as to whether it is feasible to know where the mobile phones of our staff are at any particular moment and where they have been in the past so I can replace the expensive rental on GPS trackers in the cars.

BACKGROUND
* I work with a small electrical firm where each vehicle has a GPS tracking system that is soon to run out of rental contract.
* Staff are all equipped with an iPhone and a Galaxy TabA (can be hotspotted to iPhone)
* Office staff need to know where staff are at any particular time in order to efficiently assign urgent jobs
* Office staff also need to occasionally look to see where a vehicle was on a particular day
* I have no idea what an iPhone can do as far as reporting current position or historical tracking but I believe it can do it so some degree
* Using the iPhone for too much tracking can put a real drain on the battery so what are the options?
* The Tab A has GPS functionality but it's communication options are limited to WiFi
* I may be able to use TASKER on the Galaxy tab to log its position at regular intervals and email it to the office when connected to WiFi

Any suggestions would be appreciated

Free Tool: SSL Checker

Scans your site and returns information about your SSL implementation and certificate. Helpful for debugging and validating your SSL configuration.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

We have 2 Azpen a1048 tablets that were recently purchased from a local retailer. When attempts were made to install needed applications there were errors that would occur after install saying "Root Detected". A call to Azpen support concluded that the tablets needed to be "flashed", however they were sure to mention that doing so would void the warranty even though they provided the image.

Thank fully we only flashed 1 of the tablets which can be recognized via USB, but since the flashed image was applied NOTHING appears on the screen when it is powered on. The power button was held in for minutes and left charging overnight - still nothing appears on screen. Not even the Android robot. We cannot get this item to display anything, but we can see the storage via Windows Explorer.

We have tried 2 compatible Allwinner tools, both which say flashing 100% complete, but the tablet fails to display anything on screen. It's disappointing that Azpen would conclude flashing was needed and then say it's not supported. I'm hoping somebody has an idea before we throw this tablet away.

Any advice will be most appreciated. Thx

How can I get my Verizon Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 upgraded to at least Kitkat? I see so many people who did it with the Wifi version, but I can't find anyway to do it with the Verizon LTE Tablet version (SCH-I915).

http://www.zdnet.com/article/samsung-citrix-turn-galaxy-s8-into-desktop-environment-via-the-samsung-dex/

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/03/29/vmware_samsung_galaxy_s8/

Seems to be a lot of interest in this.... my understanding is that this is basically the ability for a Samsung Android OS to be projected onto a monitor and the user to run Citrix based apps that are present on the device, correct?

What is the use case here?

1. A user at home can dock their personal device into Dex and connect to corporate resources

2. A user in the office can do the same, and we don't need to provide them with a virtual desktop or physical machine

3. Not understanding the Workspace ONE integration (second link)?

Hi I need an app that I can install on a tablet, so when I write a message on the tablet it can be instantly synced to show the same message on the desktop.

I need it to make things easier at my work (in a shipping department). Currently when we ship boxes  we  write the box size and weight on a piece of scrap paper. Then I would carry the paper over to the desktop terminal where I would enter in the shipping weight and box size.

I can not tell you how many times I get to the shipping station and there is no scrap paper, or no pen, or both. It just makes the task of creating the shipment 2x as long cus once we realize there is no pen or paper sometimes it takes an extra 2-3 minutes just to find a pen laying arround. So I figured if I had a tablet that stays right at the shipping station all the time and also had a program to sync the data to the desktop, I can write with my finger or type into the app "30 LBS, 12x12x25" then when I get back to the desktop I can see the numbers I just entered, and then maybe clear the screen out for the next time someone needs to create a shipment.

Does anyone know of any such software?

Hi,

We're experiencing an issue with regards to ADFS 3.0 login page not rendering correctly on a mobile device under certain conditions.  I have attached a screenshot.

I have an Android device and when using Chrome the text overlays the password box if I use my SwitfKey keyboard but if I use the standard builtin keyboard then the text is fine.

On some other devices (Windows phone) the text overlays without the keyboard on the screen at all.

Is there something I can do in the ADFS config for the login page?

Thanks
