Internet Explorer crashes when trying to connect to Central Hosting

If Internet Explorer crashes when connecting to Central Hosting you may receive this message when logging into Central Hosting:  “Microsoft Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close.”

Internet Explorer 7 or above will sometimes experience crashing when trying to connect to Central Hosting. This is due to changes in Internet Explorer security made by some Microsoft Updates.

Once these updates are applied Internet Explorer does not recognise it as being “trusted”. This causes internet explorer to hang and eventually crash when trying to connect to Central Hosting.

There is a work around for this which is to set the cambsed webpage to be a “trusted” site.

  1. In Internet Explorer, click on Tools and then Internet Options.
  2. When the new panel opens, click on the Security Tab.
  3. Click on the Trusted Sites icon (the green tick)
  4. Click on the Sites button.
  5. Take the tick out of the “Require Server Verification” button.
  6. Click the Add button to add *.cambsed.net as a trusted site.
  7. Click the Close button.
  8. Back on the Internet Options screen, click on the Custom Level button.
  9. Scroll down until you see “Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe for scripting”.
  10. Click on Enable and then click OK.
  11. Click Yes to confirm the change, and click OK to close the box.
  12. You should now be able to log into Central Hosting.

Remote Access – Login from home

Benefits of the Remote Access solution:

  • Support for many devices including mobile Apple and Android tablets and phones.
  • No secondary login page – can automatically pass credentials through to applications.
  • A modern and easy to use interface.
  • “HTML 5” compatible – meaning no need to install any additional software / plugins.
  • Additional secure two factor authentication options.
  • High performance.

How to access the Remote Access solution:

Central Hosting users will be automatically redirected to the remote access service after pressing on the ‘Connect’ button, otherwise it can be accessed directly in a web browser by connecting to the following URL address: https://ras2fa.cambsed.net

Type your normal Central Hosting Username and Password

Leave Domain as Cambsed.net

Press Login

Next the following screen will appear requesting details from your secure remote access Fob / token:

Enter your PVN (aka PIN) and Number displayed on the Entrust token screen (leaving no spaces).
Press OK

After successfully authenticating you will be presented with the Bookmarks available to you:

You may have additional bookmarks (depending on your schools requirements) but Central Hosting users will receive:

  • Central Hosting – ActiveX – This is the best option when using Microsoft Internet Explorer.
  • Central Hosting – HTML5 – This is the better choice when using other non Microsoft Internet browsers and tablet devices.

Finally always remember when finished it is important to logout through the Start / Logout icon rather than clicking the X to close down the screen.

Questions and Answers:

Question: Which browser gives me the best overall experience?
Answer: The remote access solution supports most modern browsers

Question: I have logged into https://ras2fa.cambsed.net, when I try to connect to Central Hosting the following appears, and it goes no further:

Answer: You have chosen the bookmark not compatible with your device – example: Central Hosting – for Internet Explorer on a mobile device. Please choose the other bookmark.

Question: Can I make the screen larger using the “Any Browser” bookmark?
Answer: Yes, click on this icon    at the top right corner of your screen and either of the following popup(s) will appear:


Click Full Screen to view the session in a full screen. Not all browsers / devices support full screen mode so you may click Fit to View which will try best fit but grey bars may appear at the sides.

You may also be presented with full screen confirmation.

Click Allow to continue.

Question: I have found the ability to use alternative browsers and devices very valuable although some applications within Central Hosted are not designed for touch, is there a way around this?
Answer: You may wish to try a stylus for more precision if supported by your device. Otherwise unfortunately not as this is a limitation of some devices and not on the new remote access solution.

Question: When using the “Central Hosting – for Internet Explorer” bookmark I receive an error message “Invalid connection file (C:\Users\[Username]\AppData\local\Temp\Central Hosting – for internet explorer.rdp) specified.”
Answer: In Internet Explorer, click Tools, click Internet Options, and then click the Security tab. Select the Trusted sites option and press the sites button. Add “*.cambsed.net” (without quotes) to your trusted sites. Click OK two times to accept the changes and return to Internet Explorer.

Question: When using Internet Explorer you can login, but when clicking “Central Hosting – for Internet Explorer” the add-ons will not run.
Answer: Ensure “*.cambed.net” is added to the trusted sites (see previous answer), but also ensure “Enabled Protected Mode” unticked.

Should you experience any further difficulties logging on from home, then please call The ICT Service Helpline on 0300 300 0000

Restoring deleted files in Central Hosting

Using the Previous Versions feature of Windows, it is possible for Central Hosting users to recover files that have been deleted (accidentally or otherwise) from Central Hosting.

A snapshot of every folder/file is taken three times a day (at around 7.00am, 12:00pm and 7.00pm); it is possible to restore files back to their state at these times.

Please note, that if a file is created after the most recent snapshot, and subsequently deleted or not saved before the next snapshot, it is not recoverable, for example, file1.doc is created at 10.00am and then deleted at 11.00am; as the file did not exist at the time of the 7.00am snapshot, it cannot be recovered.

To restore a file from Previous Versions:

  • Navigate to the folder where the file is/was.
  • Right-click in the blank space and select Properties.
  • Select the Previous Versions tab.
  • Select the appropriate snapshot and click Open.
  • A new window will open showing the files/folders in that snapshot; if necessary, open the relevant file to confirm that it is the correct version.
  • Copy and paste the file, or open it and use Save As, to restore the file to its original location.

If a file has been deleted prior to the oldest available snapshot, it will be necessary​ to restore the file from the central backups – please contact The ICT Service Helpline on 0300 300 0000 to arrange this.

The Services

The ICT Service Central Hosting Service provides the following:

  • hosting of your current SIMS and FMS and other related applications (See Supported Software List in FAQ above)

In addition to the Customer Responsibilities, Customers using the Central Hosting Service will need to do the following:

  • inform The ICT Service in a timely manner if your school no longer requires access to Central Hosting.  In this case your schools’ instance will be fully decommissioned and the data provided back to you.  There will be an additional charge for this that will be agreed based on the requirements of where the data needs to be placed.
  • ensure that users log off correctly before the end of each day and before any scheduled maintenance; and
  • ensure that any user accessing the Central Hosting Service is licensed to use Microsoft Office 2010. If the Customer uses Microsoft Office 2007 or an earlier version of Microsoft Office, the Customer will need to purchase Microsoft Office 2010 licences (or newer).

Oki and HP Fix

Central Hosting users may find that their OKI and HP printers print text too close together or even overlapping. This is due to a driver issue which only manifests itself when being used on Central Hosting.

The ICT Service has contacted OKI about this as have several other companies who use the same printing software throughout Europe. OKI have pledged to look into this however in the short term we have produced a fix for this issue.

Dinner Money – Exporting Catering Returns

When exporting Dinner Money Catering Returns XML inside SIMs you may receive an ERROR. If you expand the details you see a fault in MSOXEV.DLL

We are aware of the issue, but are unable to replicate the problem on our test environment to escalate to Capita Support.The work around:

  • These Reports are usually saved into Central Share\SIMS Share\Dinner Money Reports
  • Create a new folder inside the “Dinner Money Reports” i.e. History
  • Move all documents inside “Dinner Money Reports” into the History Folder.
  • Please report this issue to Helpdesk, as we would like to get support from Capita.


How to change the transfer folder location

Setting up a Microsoft Outlook 2013 profile for Microsoft Office 365

Email Bounce Back (IMCEAEX)

If you attempt to send a new email, reply to an old email or someone emails you after your email has been moved to a new system such as Office 365 or GSuite; a bounce back message, that looks similar to the following, may be received. Note the mailto:IMCEAEX

Delivery has failed to these recipients or groups:

The email address that you entered couldn’t be found. Check the address and try resending the message. If the problem continues, please contact your helpdesk.

This is caused by the way Microsoft Outlook cached the original Exchange address (not to be confused with SMTP Email address).

There is a simple fix, so please pass on this information to the sender:

When they start typing your name into there outlook client it attempts to autocomplete your email address.

They need to press the “X” at the end of your name to delete the cached details:

The re-type your email address again in full i.e. info@theictservice.org.uk

Note: If users are also replying to an old message, then the “IMCEAEX” address can also be held in the message. So the fix in this case would be again to delete the “To…” address and either re-type it in full.
