simple wifi blocking

I've been using a device called a fingbox to selectively block internet/wifi access for several months. I thought I'd pass it along in case anyone else needs something like this. https://www.fing.io/ It has several nice features that help with monitoring and blocking kids use of wifi. It works with ...

Re: Two Factor Authentication

Kudos to whoever enabled the two step auth - you (all) deserve a raise!

Re: Newsletter going away???

Agreed. Those same quirks exist for all other file sharing services that might be utilized as a replacement: 1) Training - this will be the same for any service - a ward/stake that chooses to use some other service will have to train users 2) Reliability - I never noticed any unacceptable outages to...

Re: Newsletter going away???

sbradshaw: Here are some items that are currently on our ward & stake newsletter site that need to be shared with ward members and should be kept private: - ward history (has personal contact information in it among other things) - annual letter from the bishop (has personal info) - missionary c...

Re: Newsletter going away???

In my view taking away the newsletter site will result in confidential church information being moved to non-authenticated locations such as public cloud storage, facebook, email, etc. Put us under condemnation (D&C 84:54-55) for treating it lightly, but please don't take it away until an altern...

Re: A great option for Home web filtering

Most ISPs in the US do not perform any filtering. For an ISP, it's a high cost technology that would generate a lot of complaints. If they offer the service, the families that want filtering would complain if they make a mistake. The customers who want to see porn/nudity would complain if they are b...

Re: New Computer Setup

I think we need to break this cloud data question down to a need, requirements, and solution. This discussion has been going on for years now with no solution. So let's put together a solution. There's an obvious need for ward councils to share data - much of it confidential - with each other. This ...

Re: A great option for Home web filtering

I spend a few hours poking around Sophos UTM Home Edition (http://www.sophos.com/en-us/products/free-tools/sophos-utm-home-edition.aspx). It's easily the most powerful home internet filter I've seen. The fact that it's free has made me bring up the sophos products at work in order to support the com...

Re: A great option for Home web filtering

Yes - it is possible, but not easy ... Untangle has a pay-for option called the "policy module" that would allow you to set up different filtering options for each person/computer. With the *easy* setup, it would apply to a computer. But it is possible to set it up with a captive portal th...
