    Filtering on iPad 3G

    Hi,

    It looks like we are getting some 3G iPads here. Does anyone know how i can filter these please? In an iPad you set the pr0x settings in the wifi settings. Can you do this for a 3G connection please?

    Thanks

    If you bought 3G less iPads, you wouldn't have this problem! They'd also be cheaper too.

    It's the same as mobile phones. There is no proxy or filtering involved, just a direct connection.

    I would of thought however you'd still need a 3G sim card to use it, unless the iPad comes with one?

    Contact your SIM provider to connect into a filtered service. Within EMBC we make use of the Capita offering on this to give 3G connectivity running through the provided netsweeper array. This is a deal via a well known mobile provider but relies on kit on the EMBC network. Other similar services are available.

    Orange offer a service, where they will create you your own AP for 3G. It involves installing a router on your network, but everything mobile uses your AP which automatically connects to YOUR network, applying all filtering from YOUR LAN and providing VPN access without having to faff about.

    It's called Data VPN. I've got a data sheet somewhere if anyone wants it.

    I don't have a particular contact, as we haven't signed up yet.

    It is offered under the umbrella of Orange Business VPN's and called Data VPN.

    I have a product briefing I can email you, if you pm me your address.

    This is an interesting idea! We are a boarding school and students are starting to use phones so they can bypass our filtering systems. Am i understanding it right that somehow we can get our own mobile AP to route signals through our filtering still? It's Monday morning so i could be reading this completely wrong!

    Nice idea, but it only applies to your own mobiles and is IMEI locked. Don't think you can apply it to a general area of mobile use. And you cant force all the students to use your apn, they would just change it back!

    When I was at boarding school, BBC Micro/Master were king and there was no internet!

    I'm sure I read some where that if you install the k9 web browser and disable safari you can set block lists etc per device. Worth a thought.

    Not really good if you have a large number of devices but ok if you have one.
