If it involves computers or electronics, I probably do it.

I have experience with Exchange, Sharepoint, Zabbix, Powershell, Hyper-V clusters, and a whole host of other things.

If you need to contact me, my email address is grant@emsley.ca

comment Attaching hotspot to existing network - can it be secured?
Updated the question to include that. Attacks between wireless clients isn't a concern here. All I'm concerned with is protecting the office PCs from wireless clients. The best solution is to put the hotspot router directly off the modem, and connect the office PCs to my equipment so I can firewall them properly. Which is what I did in the end. I'm just wondering if there was a way to make this idea work, so no changes would need to be made to the existing network. I suspect the answer is no. But I also know there are people smarter than me out there!

comment Attaching hotspot to existing network - can it be secured?
Because the goal was to be able to ship a preconfigured device to the location and have someone just plug it in. In the end, that's basically what we did, since I wouldn't help them set it up this way without finding a way to secure it.

comment Is it safer to use less heard of software than popular software?
You believe Opera would be more secure because it sends ALL your traffic through a single server you have no control over? I'd consider it to be the exact opposite of safer.
