To disable password authentication you need to edit /etc/sshd_config. In Terminal: sudo vim /etc/sshd_config (or replace with your favourite editor) Look for the line: #ChallengeResponseAuthentication yes And change it to: ChallengeResponseAuthentication no That is, remove the # at the beginning, and change yes to no. All subsequent ssh logins ...

You should make sure that in your /etc/apache2/users/username.conf you have the following: <Directory "/Users/username/Sites/"> Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymlinks AllowOverride All Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory> The FollowSymlinks and AllowOverride are essential here. While you are hinting at both in your ...

I ran into issues where my audio controls were disabled similar to what you describe. I can't be sure it's the same issue, but in my case, killing the Core Audio process fixed it. Open up Terminal and enter this command: sudo kill -9 `ps ax | grep 'coreaudio[a-z]' | awk '{print $1}'` You'll be prompted to enter your password, but that should find and ...

I finally found the solution to this problem here: https://coderwall.com/p/h6yfda. The necessary steps are shown below: Go to Preferences, Profile, Keys. Set your left ⌥ key to act as an escape character. Locate the current shortcut for ⌥ ← or create a new one, with the following settings: Keyboard Shortcut: ⌥← Action: Send Escape Sequence Esc+: b repeat ...

The apple configurator doesn't currently have this option. The only workaround I've discovered so far is to register an exchange account with the iOS device using SSL. This forces the user to use a passcode, and disables the option to remove it. Now go into your exchange account settings on the iOS device, deselect "Use SSL" then go and disable the ...

Source of the problem By studying the processes spawned by InternetSharing (with the help of opensnoop and debugging shell scripts) I finally build a way to circumvent this systematic and stupid overwriting of /etc/bootpd.plist. InternetSharing creates a minimal /etc/bootpd.plist and then spawns 2 processes: /usr/libexec/bootpd /usr/libexec/natpmpd ...

Neither MacOSX nor iOS offer to change the OS theme. If you want to do this, you need to use third party software. What MacOSX does offer, is changing the color profile and calibrate it in System Preferences -> Displays -> Color -> Calibrate. I've played around with different options and found the option "Cool bluish white" to be much easier on the eye:

iPhone Configuration Utility You can use Apple's free iPhone Configuration Utility on Mac or Windows to create custom .XML configuration profiles for the iPad and install them to iPads over USB. I do not know which specific parameters you will have access to configure. There is also a third-party MDM (Mobile Device Manager) server platform for rolling out ...

To give a very short answer: No, this is not possible.

The Apple Configurator was made for this exact reason: easy deployment of iOS devices in large numbers.

The default is on Control-left Control-right. To customize, edit preferences/Keys and associate the escape code to some other hotkey of your choice

To restore from backup connect the iPhone to your computer wait for it to appear in iTunes right-click on the iPhone listed under Devices and select "Restore from backup..." select the backup you want to restore (there may be several) Restoring will only touch user-specific content and configurations.

I'm running Snow Leopard and my iCal Get Info command allows me to change colors. Here's a screen capture where I can make this change. To reach this window, I highlight the exchange "Calendar" in the left hand sidebar of iCal and enter Cmd I. In my iCal setup, I have "Home" (orange) "Gmail" (blue)and "Exchange" (red). I can get info and change the ...

Correct. They're sadly slow to publish this info. Try this: http://www.mactech.com/articles/mactech/Vol.21/21.02/Security/index.html Cheers!

One way to do this is to put the following command in ~/.profile: export PAGER="col -b | open -a /Applications/Safari.app -f" The PAGER environmental variable controls what program man uses to display man pages. the col command removes all of the backspace-formatting from the man page. The open command saves the output as a temporary text file and opens ...

Automatically producing a script to make all the required changes is well nigh impossible. Mac system administrators spend many hours in dark bars drinking beer or bourbon and swapping bits of these files - we are reluctant to share all that work unless you are prepared to pick up the tab. Actually the easiest way to capture the config changes is to use ...

Something like that should do it: defaults write com.apple.driver.AppleBluetoothMultitouch.mouse.plist MouseOneFingerDoubleTapGesture -int 0 defaults write com.apple.driver.AppleBluetoothMultitouch.mouse.plist MouseTwoFingerDoubleTapGesture -int 3 defaults write com.apple.driver.AppleBluetoothMultitouch.mouse.plist MouseTwoFingerHorizSwipeGesture -int 2 ...

Lingon (MAS link) It provides a nice GUI for creating daemons/agents, without writing plist file by yourself. You can also use it to delete daemons/agents that you don't want.

You can restore pretty much any iPhone backup onto any other iOS hardware. Should you have made some settings changes for hardware that is no longer there, those will sit there unchanged and hidden until you restore that backup back onto a device that can use that setting. You also don't have to worry about being hobbled - the software was designed to let ...

On shell level, $PATH is set in /etc/profile by calling /usr/libexec/path_helper. To add your own paths, you can add files with a path in it to /etc/paths.d/: pse@Fourecks:~$ ll /etc/paths.d total 8 -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 13 Jul 22 07:02 50-X11 -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 12 Aug 13 14:12 TeX pse@Fourecks:~$ cat /etc/paths.d/TeX /usr/texbin That's the ...

There is not a native way to do this in iOS, but there are many possibilities for workarounds. Here's one: Set up Boxcar and install the helper app on your iDevice. Create a rule in Boxcar telling the helper app to get a push notification every time a message is received at the forwarding address provided. If you need help with this, see this help article. ...

If you connect it to a display that offers 1280 x 720 as a resolution, then it should give you that as an option. You need to test it with the display that you will be using at the conference, which is always a good idea.

You may want to try getting rid of the related files in /Library/LaunchDaemons and /Library/LaunchAgents. Those will all start with com.rim.*, so you can run: sudo rm /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.rim.* sudo rm /Library/LaunchAgents/com.rim.*

NTPd can be configured to get time from any host. Notably many use http://www.pool.ntp.org That IP is running a ntp server with accurate time; and a http server, the page is mostly invalid HTML with Google Ads. It doesn't look terribly nefarious, so I'd guess that something else is going on here. Check your configuration and see if it's set to use that IP ...

This doesn't appear possible. In order to utilize email functionalities from within apps, you will have to enable the Apple Mail app. I recommend turning off all notifications for Mail if you want to use the Gmail app as your primary iPhone mail client.

I understand the motivation behind your question. update-alternatives elegantly solves the problem of managing several installed versions of a program (for example Java) or different ports of a program (vim vs. elvis vs. vile) by making one of them the default one. update-alternatives, found in many Linux distros, creates and manages a set of symlinks from ...

Show hidden files in Finder. Then you can either fix the problem in TextEdit, or simply remove/rename the file. There is no default ~/.profile on Mac OS X, only a global /etc/profile (and you may also have a ~/.bash_profile).
