2012 Model Laptops and Notebooks that Feature a Serial Port (RS-232)

I was recently asked to source laptops with an integrated serial port which is becoming harder and harder in this day and age.

Thankfully a few vendors still fit the trusty RS-232 port to some models and I have outlined these models below.

[RESOLVED] Google Android ICS 4.0, 4.01 or 4.02 – Handset Crashes and Reboots when you try to connect to an IPSec Xauth PSK VPN over the 3G Mobile Network

You may find that your Google Android ICS 4.0, 4.01 or 4.02 Smart Phone crashes and reboots when you try to connect to an IPSec Xauth PSK VPN over the 3G Mobile Network.  This has been seen to occur with Watchguard and Cisco VPN connections and is related to a glitch in the Google Android Modem Driver.

You will need to wait for an Over the Air update to Google Android 4.0.3 for the issue to be resolved, if this issue is severely affecting you then you may be able to contact your moile network carrier and/or the handset manufacturer to arrange to have the phone updated earlier.

Further information about this issue can be found here: http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=23404&can=1&q=vpn%20xauth&colspec=ID Type Status Owner Summary Stars

A Windows Based Computer that is connected to your network via an IP Phone (NAP-Enabled) may not connect to the same VLAN after resume from hibernation

This issue applies to Windows XP – SP3, Windows Vista – SP2, Windows Server 2008 – SP2, Windows Server 2008 R2 – SP1 and Windows 7 – SP1.

This issue occurs on networks that use IEEE 802.1X authentication where the client computer or server machine is connected or bridged via a NAP-Enabled device such as an IP or VoIP Phone Handset.

The issue will not be resolved for Windows XP because it is now outside the mainstream support cycle.  Hotfixes for the other operating systems listed above can be obtain via Microsoft KB 976373 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/976373
