1. Swipe Down from the top of your screen to access the quick settings.
2. Tap the small gear icon in the top right corner.
3. Scroll down and select “Accounts”
4. In accounts select Exchange.
5. Next select Manual Setup.
6. Then select Exchange.

1. Your email address
2. Your password
3. Under server, type in Outlook.office365.com
4. Leave Port as 443 (Change it if it is not)
5. Leave Security as SSL/TLS (Change it if it is not)
After you have filled everything in, hit “NEXT“.
8. The first box on this screen should be set to/left as Automatic (Push). It is recommended that you “Sync” Two Weeks of emails to conserve data. Make sure all boxes on the screen are checked, unless you are instructed otherwise.
The next step may not apply to you.
9. In the case that the following shows up on your screen after completion, simply hit activate in the bottom right.
Your account should now be set up.
Below is a brief explanation of how you can setup your Office 365 Email on an iPhone.
Open your “Settings” menu and navigate to “Mail Contacts, Calendars”, then select “Add Account”. For “Account Type”, select “Microsoft Exchange” or “Exchange”.
You will need to enter in the following settings
If it asks you for a server, enter “outlook.office365.com”.
You may receive a certificate error, select “continue” to acknowledge.
Last, select the information you would like to download from your Office 365. In order to get email, you will need to at least have “Mail” set to “On”.
My most recent post, “How to Make you LinkedIn Profile Available to Google” lead to a few people asking how to do the same thing on Facebook, and a few even asked how to remove their page from Google, so we will go over both.
Once you are logged into Facebook, Click the “Privacy Icon” in the upper right, then Select “See More Settings”.
Once In the Privacy Settings and Tools, you can see if your Facebook profile is available to Google by looking at the option for “Do you want search engines outside of Facebook to link to your profile?”
If it is set to “No”, Anyone Googling you will be unable to see your profile. If it is set to “Yes”, those googling you will be able to see your profile. To change it, select “Edit”.
By checking the box, you enable people to find your Facebook profile from Google, if you uncheck the box, if someone Googles your name, your Facebook profile will no longer be available to Google.
This setting may take up to 48 hours to go into effect.
Today, I was asked by someone why they were not able to see their LinkedIn profile anymore when they Googled their name. I tried to explain that LinkedIn’s privacy settings have changed since they had last tried to search for them self. I also offered to do a brief write up explaining how to make it available to Google, hopefully this helps some of you as well.
Once you are logged in, click your pictures to open the “Account & Settings” dialog. From there, click “Privacy & Settings”.
After you have arrived at the “Privacy & Settings” Menu, Click “Privacy”. From there, Click “Change” next to “Edit your public Profile”.
On the right hand column, you need to select “Make my public profile visible to everyone”. Then, continue to select the information you want to be available to Google and the Public, such as “Skills”, Headline”, or “Summary”. The fields you choose will be available to Google to Search as well as anyone to view, you will also see a preview in the left side pane.
8 GB RAM
256 GB SSD Hard Drive
Best price point for a laptop with SSD I have seen. Battery Life is very good, but that is a given without the spinning disks. Very sharp 15.6″ display with the added benefit of the 9-key.
May have been rushed out of production, there are at least two driver conflicts: 1) “Intel(R) 100 Series Chipset Family PCI Express Root Port…” all need updates. 2) Video card is still a little buggy. Last major con is the lack of a 5 GHz wireless card, sure the 2.4 GHz card is fine, but I want more.
Stock features include Windows 7, 8, or 10 Pro, DVD-R/W, Webcam, Card Reader, 4 USB Ports, VGA port, and an HDMI port. I have had it 3 months and it has run reasonably well. The things that have really hindered this laptop are some VERY BAD driver errors:
1) As soon as you get your Laptop up and running, you need to immediately and painstakingly individually update the drivers for each of the below items with Windows Updates. If you do not, you will find an unbelievable number of cyclically generated errors that “A corrected hardware error has occurred”.
Intel(R) 100 Series Chipset Family LPC Controller/eSPI Controller – 9D48
Intel(R) 100 Series Chipset Family PCI Express Root Port #1 – 9D10
Intel(R) 100 Series Chipset Family PCI Express Root Port #5 – 9D14
Intel(R) 100 Series Chipset Family PCI Express Root Port #6 – 9D15
Intel(R) 100 Series Chipset Family PCI Express Root Port #9 – 9D18
Intel(R) 100 Series Chipset Family PMC – 9D21
Intel(R) 100 Series Chipset Family SMBUS – 9D23
Intel(R) 100 Series Chipset Family Thermal subsystem – 9D31
You will also need to update the BIOS.
2) For reasons unknown, the Laptop will BSOD with a drive error for “Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad” (SysTPN.sys). Seems only to occur when I use the track pad, so I try to favor the Wireless Mouse.
3) From time to time, if I have an external monitor attached via the HDMI port, and the screen saver turns on, the HDMI connected monitor will go blank and the video card refuses to acknowledge the Monitor until I restart windows.
My last laptop review was for a Sony VIAO which I considered a “Mac-Book-Killer”, this laptop is great for work and play, but it is certainly not the ultimate windows machine. I would recommend it to a friend or colleague, but only if they were relatively computer competent – it has a few bugs that are not hard to work out, but they need someone who understands what to do.
This KB will explorer setting up a Cisco IP PBX for PRI traffic to Phones.
For the purpose of this document, you have a Cisco IP PBX that is separate from your primary router for any number of reasons. The Cisco IP PBX is not responsible for anything accept DHCP, routing calls, and Storing Voicemail.
You will need two separate VLANs established on your switch, one for DATA traffic (routable outside your local IP Scheme) and a separate VLAN for only voice traffic. For the sake of this, VLAN 1 is DATA, VLAN 10 is VOICE.

For the purpose of this KB Article, there will be three Sites with the Public IP Address 172.16.25.2, 172.16.86.2, and 172.16.140.2, they will be behind ISP routers.
Lets site you are a nationwide organization with a Headquarters in Rochester MI. You have a site in Jacksonville, NC and a site in San Diego, CA – you need to establish a basic VPN with these sites using just a Cisco Router – Lets go over the fundamentals.
On each router you have clients behind GE 0/0, your public facing (WAN) port is GE 0/1, and your Network has NAT in place.
Ultimately, you will need one router, the one at your HQ/Data-center to act as the HUB router, and the rest of the routers in the VPN will act as spokes.
Lets take a Look at the Running Config:

So far the battery life has been great (very important to me). The reception has been great, easily better than the iPhone. Great forward and self-camera, user-interface is wonderful, really good screen resolution, picture, and brightness.
Not available on Verizon (not the phones fault). No expandable memory or replaceable battery. Many people complain that if the phone is not RIGHT UP TO your mouth, it is difficult to understand what you are saying.
I previously had the Nexus 4, so when the Nexus 5 came out, it was a must have. Full sized screen, great sound and picture quality. Out of the box, it was one of the best looking phones I had ever seen. It even feels like it is of a sound build so I do not always feel like I am going to accidentally crush it.
Because this is a Nexus phone, it is one of Google’s flagship models. As with all the Nexus phones, Google works to pack it with all the latest and greatest features and abilities that are available to the general market.
The price is very reasonable, it has all the same features of other phones, and it is another one of Android’s iPhone Killers! As much as I dislike using iPhone as the gold standard, it is the phone which all other phones are compared against. That said, I would take this over an iPhone any day of the week.
