When to FlexConnect

Good summary of FlexConnect, nice and simple to understand.

WLAN Lessons Learned

This week I’m having talks with a client regarding wireless at his remote sites. As they are currently having autonomous access points on all these sites they are looking to change to controller based access points and are starting to ask questions like ‘Do I need a WLC on each site?’, ‘How many AP’s can I have on a remote site connecting back to a central WLC’ and ‘What happens when the WAN-link goes down?’. Hopefully the answers can be found in this post.

FlexConnect

FlexConnect is a wireless solution for branch office and remote office deployments.

POP vs IMAP – Just for Nicki

Some email software requires you to choose between POP/POP3 and IMAP protocol settings. As a rule of thumb, you should always choose IMAP if you’re planning to set up your email address on multiple devices (e.g. home computer, iPad and a smartphone). This ensures that all of your devices will get a copy of every email you receive.

A computer or device using POP protocol for an email account will often download emails from the mail server and then not leave a copy for other emails to download. For example, this means that once an email is downloaded to your desktop computer, you can’t download another copy on your smartphone.

Some email clients may have an additional setting to make POP accounts leave a copy of emails on the mail server, but this is not always the case.

If you only use a single computer, choosing POP should be fine.
