Would some thing like Meraki work for you?
Meraki Systems Manager
I was demo'd it by an IT tech for use on iPads but it may work for iPods too.
So our school has started buying Ipods (of course they don't tell the IT department they are) so i have been left with the job of sorting them out, you know updating, app, pic and all the other stuff that comes with it.
So far I have got 2 ipod touch wirelessy synced to one Apple ID and to Itunes on Windows XP (No cables). This is great I can just pick which Ipod I want to send an app to and click sync and away it goes. The problem is, is that you can only send an app to one Ipod at a time.
Is there a way to send an app to all of them at the same time?
Thanks for the reply.
Am going to look into it today. I will let you know how I get on.
Well i have been looking and it won't work because we have a proxy! Damm it.
I will keep looking!
Meraki Systems Manager does work via a proxy at least it seems to be working for us.
The IP address that Meraki use which will need to be opened up through the firewall are 126.96.36.199/24, 188.8.131.52/24, 184.108.40.206/24, 220.127.116.11/24, 18.104.22.168/24, 22.214.171.124/24, 126.96.36.199/24, 188.8.131.52/24, 184.108.40.206/24, 220.127.116.11/24, 18.104.22.168/32 and 22.214.171.124/32. The TCP Ports are HTTP (80), HTTPS (443), 7734, 7752, 2195, 2196, 5223 and 5228. The UDP Ports are 7351, 9350, 1812, 1645 ans 123.
I dont have access to the firewall.
But odd as this may sound I have an android device that meraki will find and enroll but I cant get the iPods to enroll!!!
So i gave up. Now I am using the iPhone Configurator. Works well to be fair; just one problem tho I can’t restrict the kid from putting a passcode on the device and locking it.
I read that it is great on a Mac but we dont have a Mac with a compatible OS X to run it on. Think we need to invest some money into our IT!Ha
Apple configurator is still not especially amazing at app deployment / management (yet)
Apple configurator has a major problem with it.
To put on paid apps and use your VPP licensing you have to put them into supervised mode. If you put them into supervised mode you can't access the internal storage, so no photos and no videos......seems a bit stupid really.
So no use of the inbuilt camera in supervised mode? That seems crazy, can anyone confirm?
