Re: stake counselors presiding in ward meetings.

I have an example of where an area seventy had to preside at a stake conference outside his area. In January 2008 Elder Richard G. Hinckley was assigned to preside at a stake conference in Las Vegas. That was the weekend President Hinckley was deteriorating and he would be gone the next night. So he...

Re: Firewall policy blocking VPNs

The CDN angle is reasonable now given you can set up Amazon S3 accounts as a sort of personal CDN, they are often used to dispense all kinds of video content, and some CDNs, including Amazon, are widely abused to emit all manner of nefarious and otherwise undesireable content. Something could be don...

Re: Firewall policy blocking VPNs

I had not heard of those parental control and filtering options, it looks like they may be running through a particular IP so it looks like the problem reported early on with Chromecast devices as they needed a particular IP setting to work. Another filtering option is the free K( Web Protection, us...

Re: Guaranteed traffic for leadership?

We had bottlenecks, until we updated the cabling to the best CAT 5 stuff we could get, also reran some of that and now no spots where we get less bars or other issues causing sluggishness. Did this last year and it is as good or better than most other places that also offer free wifi, and this was b...

Re: Guaranteed traffic for leadership?

I just thought of another, unexpected issue, one that is unexpected because we may not have realized there might be a problem. Some meetinghouses contain an FHC. The machines there are normally in the FHC zone, and FHCs have wifi. So, the problem there may be that some that are near the wifi are get...

Re: Guaranteed traffic for leadership?

Probably the best way is to set up an entirely new zone for those in leadership. Most major filtering solutions allow for this, where you can set policies for different workgroups and this approach is the most commonly used to manage bandwidth use. For example, leaders would have access to a few mor...

Re: Technology Manager - Update Message

The great thing about being able to monitor signal strength is to be sure the dish did not get knocked the least bit out of kilter, while they are large and heavy and no easily moved, a heavy windstorm or strong thunderstorm can 'push' the receiver just enough in the slightest way to weaken the sign...

Re: Filtering Levels

The best filtering company database by far is that run by Symantec, after acquiring Blue Coat that got even better, what they have even includes the stuff Cerberian had as first Blue Coat bought them and then Symantec bought Blue Coat. With 20 years of data, virtually everything gets a rating fairly...

Re: Filtering Levels

We had problems until we rewired the building with more current cabling, you need to have Cat 5 or better. Also run speed tests near the WAP points, typically those away from the router. We did all that and have not had problems, and we now get 4 bars in the RS room where we only got two or three be...
