Wireless network settings for mobile devices

For smartphones or PDA's with Windows Mobile we now have an installation manual to get connected to the wireless network. In order to connect the iPhone or iPod Touch to the RU campus wireless network, Apple would have to come with a newer software update than version 1.1.3 of January 2008, containing support for WPA-Enterprise 802.1x.

Wireless network Huygens building full coverage

In the Huygens building a wireless network with full coverage was realized shortly after the building was finished. Measurements over a long period have determined that about 25 of the 90 access points can be removed, so they can be used in different locations within the RU. Full coverage is still guaranteed.

Acrobat Reader, new version with problems

On all Managed PCs version 7 of Adobe Reader has been replaced by version 8.1.1, because of a security hole. The upgrade lead to several problems:

  1. Printing from Adobe Reader to a HP4250/HP4350 printer doesn't work. According to Adobe this is a fault of the software in these HP printers. As an alternative one can use the dali printer in HG00.201 or one of the colour printers (HP or Tektronix). The Ricoh multifunctional copier/printer/scanners that will be placed soon in several locations to replace the Oce copiers do not have this problem.
  2. PCs with a license for Adobe Professional do not (yet?) have a license to upgrade, but having Adobe Professional version 7 and Reader version 8 at the same time doesn't work.

Matlab nieuwe versie (R2007a)

Met ingang van mei 2007 is er een nieuwe versie (7.4, R2007a) van Matlab beschikbaar op alle door C&CZ beheerde PCs met Linux of Windows-XP en Suns met Solaris.

De oude versie (R2006b) wordt over enkele weken verwijderd, wanneer duidelijk is dat de overgang naar R2007a geen grote problemen veroorzaakt. Om de oude versie tot die tijd nog te kunnen gebruiken moet het zoekpad uitgebreid worden met /vol/matlab-R2006b/bin (onder Unix).

Voor meer info over deze release, zie [de Mathworks website]
