Re: Public wifi?

That's cool actually, I was certain they took some measures but wasn't sure how far they went.

At the moment, it seems the networks over here aren't locked down so crazy. I can run any client I want and it works just fine and downloads/uploads at full speeds(not that I would do anything illegal, natch).

I don't use VPN, kinda annoying and pointless to me, if you're needing that kind of security maybe you shouldn't be doing what you're doing.

Do you block MAC addresses, or use accounts?

At our local library, they have accounts linked to our cards(anybody can get a library card), but you could also use the anonymous logins they provide.

It's filtered by ip,when we see a no no ip that person is trying to connect to we just block the whole range,it has caused a big problem for teachers trying to access teaching material for the kids.Forums,hulu,facebook, messengers all are blocked.You need a vpn to access our network if you need to work from home or just to keep updated on the network status.

and yes everyone is on our domain
