    Hi guys,

    To keep you updated, i was presented with an MAC Mini Lion Server , keyboard, mouse and 27" Monitor on Friday...let the fun begin! Not sure where to start having never touched a MAC before!

    Darylrese,

    There are some really nice help guides on the Apple site for setting up MDM on them. Once you work out your way around the OS your be fine, I set your iPad's in a day with the MDM.

    Thank-you. Exciting times ahead but hopefully we will get there! Do you just use MDM to manage the ipads? If so what sort of things can it do?

    Volume app purchasing distribution, you can also completely configure profiles which either give the ipad network settings or Lock down what a use can do. It's very powerful

    Does the Volume purchasing cost a lot? Is it an anual cost? Sounds good, just what we need!

    Im guessing our MAC Mini can plug straight into any HDMI Monitor? Got a 27" LG Monitor we picked up cheap on its way with an HDMI port.

    Many thanks

    To set up volume purchasing you need a school credit card and its a per app cost in most cases over 20 units you get a fee pence off each one, we bought about 50 copies of each app and got a reasonable discount. If you go to the Apple website you can register it takes about 10 days.

    Is far as the screen goes you should be okay if it's the latest model you ordered , older ones need an adapter

    I've looked into Lightspeed Mobile Management for when we go down this route. Integrates with Apple Volume Purchasing.

    Any thoughts?

    We tired a few merkai and a couple of others but they all do the same thing the apple mdm does for free and you then can integrate the Mac server to you network to support , Mac suits etc.

    We tried Meraki without any luck, our local council blocked the connection and it just went nowhere. MAC seems the way forward, MAC Mini server cost us about 600 which is much cheaper than an imac. Will let you know when the monitor arrives and we have it setup and running.

    Be aware you will need some of the ports opening to get the Mac server to work as the whole iOS system uses the same non standard ports to get the verification files through.

    Which County Council are you under we had massive problems with Oxfordshire so we dumped them and moved to BT with a self managed firewall.

    We are under our local county council and it will be a battle to get things changed but we will push for it to happen once we know which ports need to be opened. Any ideas which ones need opening?

    I suggested in the summer to go over to our own firewall and internet filter when we had our new network installed but the boss'es didn't want to change!

    TCP 2195 and 2196 outbound from Your Apple Server to gateway.push.apple.com (17.0.0.0/8)
    . TCP1640 open inbound from draft-ietf-ipsec-cdp-01 - Certificate Discovery Protocol (77.72.230.30) & 17.0.0.0/8 to Your Apple Server (using the RIPE IP)
