Transferring Scans from BLK via WIFI While in a Hotel

Transferring Scans from BLK via WIFI While in a Hotel

This is kind of an odd one. On our last two scan jobs we were not able to transfer scans from the BLK360 to our laptop using the BLK's wifi and Data Manager while staying in a hotel at the end of the day but when we left the hotel we were able to transfer. After some research, we suspect that the hotels are blocking the wifi. Hotspot wifi blocking is apparently fairly common at hotels either to force residents to pay for hotel wifi or to prevent someone from setting up a false hotel wifi ssid and capturing data from other guests.

How interesting; yet another case for Leica to open cabled data transfer.
