Every switch I've ever installed has come with Jumbo frames disabled. In the field, we only recommend turning on jumbo frames for use with iSCSI traffic for an iSCSI SAN (usually a dedicated pair of switches for this). Most studies I've seen put network traffic using jumbo frames at about 30-50% fas...

No large organization anywhere in the world allows public access to the same network where their administrative computers reside... The 'professional' response to this would be to put the Clerk computers and wireless access network into two (2) different vLANs. You could restrict (or block) access ...

Has anyone heard the details of how access might be restriced (beyond the firewall)? I'm wondering if internet access can be restricted by something like calling, etc.? The reason I ask is that in 3 out of 5 of our buildings are rural and get very "slow" service from their ISP. I would almost object...

New Network Installs

My local FM Manager is talking about hiring a contractor to come install the wireless in our stake buildings. At first I wondered why... then I started to wonder if I was missing something. So now I have some questions. ⋅ How is the relationship between FM and the STS supposed to work when...

I would be curious to know how many users are connecting when you are having problems (I'm assuming this is Sunday?). Without access to the running config on the 881 :-( you would have to use a ping sweep utility to tell how many there are connected. I would recommend something like angryIP for wind...

It's a difficult situation. I think the only good reason to limit access is if 'recreational' use is eating up bandwidth needed by 'legitimate' users (i.e. clerks or maybe instructors streaming videos for classes, e tc., etc.). In the age of BYOD, I think maybe the churc...

...I found a line that reads Internet Costs should not normally be greater than $50, What does not normally mean? Our Stake is in what is considered 'rural' Nevada. In most of our (5) buildings we only have one choice of providers. In (2) of those buildings it's DSL and in the other (3) it's fixed ...

But it needs to be read by a leader with keys to interpreting the handbook. My Stake Presidency needs to help understanding this better to be able to make a decision. They would appreciate my input (as the STS). I think I can draw 2 conclusions. 1. The Chruch wants it's people to "share" on the int...

Using Facebook

I'm trying to help the Stake interprit the handbook. From reading in Book 2 Section 2.1.22 it says... "Stake and ward Web sites may be created only by using the official Church Internet resources. Stakes and wards are not authorized to create other Web sites or blogs or otherwise have a Church-...

I'm not sure what happens when all the IP addresses fill up... does the router still reserve those static IP addresses for the specific MAC addresses?). When you setup a DHCP Scope, you specify a range. With most DHCP services, you can also specify and exclusion range within that range. Typ...
