Hi guys,

Two days back I saw that an outsider who was previously company employee came with his own notebook and he tired to access the access point whose security code was known to him but his user name and password was disabled form the sensys domain. One more risky thing was that the user can access the wireless network i.e. by access the access point from outsider the company.

In the first phase to protect unauthorized user form accessing the access point of our company I have asked the IT to change the security code of the access point and do not share it with the notebook user and provide the code manually once on all the machines.

But I want more then that, I want that only notebooks which are authorized can be accessed and authenticated on our domain and any other notebook which is not listed should not be authenticated on the our domain.

Please provide your feedback in this regard.

Enable MAC Address Filtering, then you can remove the MAC address once someone leaves the company.

Thanks.MAc filtering will definetely provide a level of prtoection, so now only the listed MAC addresses of the notebooks will be able to access the Access Point. This will also help me form the ppl who are using windows mobile and are accessing their system form these mobiles through remote Desktop Smiley
