I’d like to report that since upgrading to Cisco AnyConnect v3.1.04074 for OS X my VPN connection has been stable. It was a week of hell around the world after Mac users upgraded to OS X Mavericks to find that Cisco AnyConnect was dropping connections every two minutes. Cisco then took a week to sort out the issue with Apple. The blame game by Cisco was not cool! Well that’s in the past and for the last 4 weeks Cisco AnyConnect has been stable. Thanks for the update Cisco, IT consultants logging into client’s networks depend on AnyConnect for their livelihood.
The hard drive of the first Airport Time Capsule I bought five years ago finally gave in. Five years was a great run. Previously, I used Lacie network drives and they lasted less than two years before the hard drives failed. Luckily I had all my data backed up to a second Time Capsule.
Today i purchased the new Time Capsule, it has a different form factor from the previous version. The built in router is situated at the top of the Time Capsule which provides better wireless coverage. So far that seems to be the case. Installing, the Time Capsule on my network took a few minutes of setup, however, copying 200 Gb of data back onto the new Time Capsule is taking forever.
Cisco has had over nine months to ensure their Cisco AnyConnect VPN works with OS X Mavericks. Once again Cisco AnyConnect is not reliably connecting to corporate networks. Users around the world are having trouble staying connected to their office’s network for any prolonged period of time. Of course Cisco Support is indicating it’s a bug in OS X Mavericks.
The new iPhone 5c comes in five colours: green, blue, yellow, pink and white. My daughter is a pink person, my wife likes white, that leaves me with blue green and yellow. I could also go for the black corporate looking 5s. Which colour are you thinking about?
I have been using iOS 7 for a week now and love the minimalist and simplicity of the UI design. Way to go Jonathan Ives, you have really embraced Steve’s design philosophy and added your own twist.
