    by , 30th June 2014 at 11:28 AM
    Hello,

    I have just upgraded to version 9.8 of the Ruckus Firmware. But at first I got this error message after the upgrade had finished - "A support upgrade entitlement does not appear to have been purchased for this ZD. Please contact Ruckus Support further assistance. [What's this?]"

    It seemed that the filtering was stopping my ZoneDirector calling back home. To resolve this issue I added the IP address 12.217.161.158 to the authentication exception in order ...

  2. Script to Map Network Shares on OSX (AFP or SMB)

    by , 30th June 2014 at 10:17 AM
    I have tested mapping shares with Profiles and determined that it wasn't 100% reliable, and not as powerful as I liked. I decided to use an AppleScript to map the network shares, which is saved as an app with a nice icon and run at login. It can also be run if the shares disconnect while the user is logged in, which happens quite often since so many of our teachers just close the lid and can go weeks or months without actually logging in to their account on the network (sigh).

  5. Data Protection and Safe Harbor

    by , 5th June 2014 at 12:47 PM
    I'm a big fan of cloud services. They provide universal access to powerful software at little cost to the school, and they're convenient for both students and teachers. But data protection is a big issue to get your head around, and many schools either struggle to understand the implications of storing data online, or simply never address the issue.
