    Why do you make content decisions on what staff do with their personal devices?

    You're OK with me joining hate groups on Facebook, but draw the line at having a Punt on the Melbourne cup.

    may be personal device, but still company time and resources.

    Imagine the headlines.

    XYZ Corp network hub for child pornography ring... news at 6

    That may be a little extreme, but I've been involved in investigations on regular pron and/or piracy rings using employers resources. Cops get involved people get fired put in jail, easier to block that shit happening - even if not 100% effective at least the employer can say, well it was in the EULA, we had protections in place, employer Blogs it's all on you.

    I don't. My management does, as it's their link, their money, and their company name associated with the content flying over that IP address.

    No blocking = plausible deniability.

    Selective blocking, means the company tacitly approves the content you can get to.

    I wonder if captive portals are legally binding.

    What do "public wifi" places do for content filtering? can I redtube at macdonalds?

    as long as it's on a company supplied connection, it faces the company supplied rules.
    you want full access to whatever you want? use your own data.

    I can't use the phone while driving, and only ever use the Drive through.

    What business needs do the company rules meet? What is the purpose? and how effective are the technical measures put in place, and meeting this purpose?

    In our case, conservation of bandwidth and data seem to be the driving factors.

    We don't. You want to watch redtube or sync your 100GB iCloud library, we don't care, but you are doing it on your own data, not corporate data.

    We also limit bandwidth to several hundred KB/s.

    Everything but the last line is really superfluous, right?

    The SSID has a capture portal that requires agreeing to the terms of use.
    That has a tendency to time out over some not overly long period of time.
    As already mentioned, it's limited to several hundred KB/s.

    And yet, i've seen some reports from some of our AP's showing usage measured in the 100's of GB.

    That's some serious dedication.

    Fuck those lazy admins who don't manage their AD environments and expect it just to work.

    Been monitoring an issue over the past couple of weeks with replication problems to a root domain server based on our site. No admin rights means i can't logon and have a look, believe me i've tried.

    Sent and email to them on Friday after we had a power outage that took the best part of the day to recover only to be asked for logs of the issue. Sent and no acknowledgement. Resent an email today as it turns out that the server hasn't been replicating properly, based on repadmin results, for around 60 days :(

    Fuck you. Do you're job you lazy fuckers. You apparently have tasks that you need to do at 5am in the morning before you start so add this shit too it.

    Rant over.

    And indicates that your technical measures, aren't meeting the business requirements.
