Hello @Megatron,

Please raise a ticket at https://rhtapps.redhat.com/comments/

Try to be as descriptive as possible in terms of the issue you faced, what steps were taken to mitigate this and the details of your exam such as date, your redhat.com id etc. This will help in capturing your feedback.

Best Regards,

Hi, 

I have a quastion, currently my laptop has 2 usb ports, i have wired mouse and wired keyboard wierd external camera and i need to plugin a bootable_usb_flash_drive.

I can i use a dock_station? So i can plugin there my: External monitor,mouse,keyboard,external_camera and usb_flash_drive..
Dock_station will take a role like a charger for my laptop, and yes laptop will be with closed lid.

Please let me know if this scenario works. Thanks.

Hi @180-047-912 , 

That should work, if I understood your setup correctly. Have you tried the compatibility mode, to see if the hardware is properly supported?

Cheers,

Hello Team,

Could we use a dock as an usb hub to connect the devices (external webcam, wired mouse, usb drive) and to connect the network (using CAT6 cable - the port on my laptop is busted and not working) even though I am not using external monitor during exam ? I would be taking exam from laptop itself

Thank you.

 

Regards,

Suman

Hello @stripura,

You can use a docking station as long as only the essential accessories are connected to it. In your case, they would be: wired webcam, USB drive, ethernet cable and a wired mouse.

Hello, 

I schduled my exam for next week, 

Do I need speakers for the exam, or is it enough to have only a camera and microphone? And in case speakers are required, can I use an external USB sound card since my speakers won't plug directly into the computer?

Hello @Michael1,

Speakers are not a requirement for remote exams. The proctor will communicate with you via a chat applet with in the proctoring application. 

All the best for your upcoming exam.

Is this still valid? I take my test next week and my monitor/computer does not have built in speakers.

Hi, I think speakers may not needed. Since all communication with proctor is done via live chat. When proctor sends you a message you will get a sound notification. I think this is the only purpose of the speakers. But microphone is needed. I used external Blue Yeti microphone since my PC doesn't have built-in mic. Mic is needed so proctor could hear what's going on in your room.
