    Free Ipad management

    As some of you know I am an anti-apple and hate it to death.

    But this has impressed me with regards to managing apps.

    Meraki Systems Manager

    Plus its free!!

    Will investigate this tomorrow - it's been on my todo list to look at for a while.

    Thanks

    Just installed it on a client pc and so far it hasn't checked in with the meraki dashboard wondering if maybe somethign in smoothie is blocking it but can't find any info on the meraki pages about what ports etc... it uses.

    Looks like it also used vnc for remote desktop access to clients.

    Ah it just worked here - But we have all outbound access open and no proxy.

    Should be fairly easy in the smoothie to determine what it is trying to do though.

    If it does what it says on the tin and it is free then ace one! Can't believe they'd give something like this away free.

    From what I can see it seems to do what is says on the tin!
    @plexer - if you know the IP of the ipad just stick it in the web-filter live log and see if it is blocking anything - if nothing is hitting it there then under firewall should do it.

    Ipad yuck this was a client laptop

    Done that and nothing is displayed that looks relevant to the meraki nothing at all under firewall but then as this is SWG-1200 there probably wouldn't./

    I restarted the meraki service just to see if it would kick anything off.

    Local firewall should prevent outbound connections though surely?
