In this week’s podcast we had a question from Craig Shimmon about recommendations for how to make iLoks secure in a computer lab environment. I had two suggestions, a diecast box which Neil Hester suggested trashing the lid screws once fitted and screwed to the desk, or a product called a Roklocker. We have had an excellent solution which takes my diecast box idea and moves it on many stages to an excellent solution and so with Neil and Fred’s permission we bring you the Fredbox Mk 2. They also offer an improvement to my our ideas for a Mac Pro. Neil Martin takes up the story….
It is a solution which secures an iMac, its keyboard and mouse and any other USB cables connected to it, as well as a USB dongle, including aniLok 2 (for an iLok 1, just buy a slightly bigger box!). If you’re comfortable with drilling big holes into desks and aluminum boxes, read on.
