    To stop any accidental or deliberate ‘cross-casting’ I have enabled the on-screen PIN code that requires a user to type this in before being able to wirelessly connect to the Surface Hub. My issue is that this does not always appear and some users are able to connect without being challenged for the on-screen PIN. In general this may be users that have previously connected, with or without the PIN, however some users that have not connected previously are also not challenged for the PIN.

    On other screen-casting sytems a new Pin is generated and required for access for each new session, As you can imagine, if we deploy Surface Hubs across our meeting/tutorial rooms then access will be given to thousands of staff and students with the potential for havoc...

    Is this 'as-designed' or a bug? Anyone else have the same experience?
