Hi All,

I'm currently working on setting up an X-serve to manage all the user accounts and log-ons for the company I work for.

The server(s) are managing about 40 macs in total with different types of user accounts.

But what I want to do is lock down the bluetooth to stop users connecting their phones etc, but still allow connections for apple bluetooth devices (i.e. bluetooth keyboards and a mighty mouse)

Can this be done, and how is it managed?

Cheers

As far as I know the thing you want is not feasible with Mac OSX Server ... You can tighten security of Bluetooth but besides disabling it completely there is no option to stop users from connecting their mobiles and whatnot ...

Maybe there are some third party applications for it ?

Thats what I thought, I've been playing around with the parental controls on Snow Leopard too, but I can't seem to find anything.

I just wondered if there was a sort of terminal hack that could be done.
