    Hi Peter. I don't think I had any problems...!!! I am double checking the proxy set up at the school I set Meraki up with their technician and will let you know. I have a feeling the proxy settings are fairly relaxed as if they are tied down it leaves schools frustrated that they can't do anything and can bottleneck the fibre speed! I am going to set up another school in the next few weeks who I know have much tighter proxy settings so that will be interesting!  I work for the NEAL Trust on the North Shore and I am planning on rolling out Meraki in a few of our schools as their current solutions are time consuming, messy and don't really follow the iTunes Terms and Conditions!!!

    For those schools who have iPads and only Windows PCs and laptops means Apple Configurator can't be used (as far as I am aware!).  We are using Meraki which is a free web based tool to manage all the iPads and push apps out.  It also works with the VVP which is a bonus!  This meant we saved money not having to buy a MacBook, it runs off the assigned Windows laptop.
