    problem Trying to get VPN LAN side distributed across VLAN fails

    Turned out to be something with the switch programming, the one creating the vLAN that is. Moved it over to a different switch and it worked fine now.

    Major Qualcomm chip security flaws expose 900M Android users

    Check out copperhead supported devices list, Google isn't doing too bad IMO when they enable things like this to exist. I'd return to iOS if security was the highest priority for me but it's about trade-offs and I also like flexibility. I'm really only against the vendors/carriers that are...

    Major Qualcomm chip security flaws expose 900M Android users

    That's a concern but for me it's mitigated once the battery is big enough and the phone is available with enough memory (6P/64gb). Now that google is pushing monthly updates I think we are seeing who is going to put the effort in to keep up to date and shame those that don't. Google knows that...

    Major Qualcomm chip security flaws expose 900M Android users

    This vuln is way overblown. To activate it you need to sideload an app and disable google app verification. Things you probably should be doing unless you really trust where you got that app from. The only android vuln that worried me was stagfright but it's fixed. At least on Nexus and other...

    thanks for staying on the patches. Vbulletin has a lot of very bad news in the security community lately.

    Surface Pro

    I had a surface pro 3 for about four months. I wanted something a bit more powerful than an android tablet that wasn't a full laptop. The surface pro wasn't it. It was a frustrating mobile experience. -The on screen keyboard sucks. On android I really like swiftkey, on windows they don't...

    Calendar for Android

    I use fruux for my back end calendar and contacts. They are a really good and focused pay service and focus on dav for syncing. Work I'm using a google calendar. On android I use the google calendar app, the fruux sync app and month calendar widget to devote a whole home screen to the calendar...

    Smartphone and plan advice (v. clean slate)

    I'm really hoping the next small nexus phone doesn't have any compromises. The 6P has been fantastic but I'm ready for something smaller.

    problem Trying to get VPN LAN side distributed across VLAN fails

    Yes, everything works as expected. They have me out of town doing startup work and I haven't had time in the office to deal with this. It's frustrating.

    Smartphone and plan advice (v. clean slate)

    Well I'm pretty sensitive to lag and I have a bunch of android devices so I can tell when something isn't right. I generally run the animation scale at .5x which really speeds things up and uncovers slower devices. The LG G4 on 5.1 wasn't as horribly lagy as say the Nexus 9 for its first six...

    Smartphone and plan advice (v. clean slate)

    LG G4? I had an import before it was brought to the US and loved the form factor, great hardware. Hated whatever they did to the software to make it laggy, I stuck it out for three months and sold it being pretty disappointed. If you are sensitive to pauses and stutters I'd give it a pass. The...

    problem Trying to get VPN LAN side distributed across VLAN fails

    Good questions, some clarification: 6. -Devices on the VLAN can reach each other no matter what building they are in but they can NOT reach the LAN side configuration page of the VPN. Sometimes they can ping the LAN side of the VPN but mostly it fails. The VPN seems to be singled out here for...

    problem Trying to get VPN LAN side distributed across VLAN fails

    We will look at this possibility. My thinking at the time was manually entering the VPN device IP address on the network in other computers and devices as the gateway address should make that a non issue, at the same time avoiding an IP collision. Thanks.
