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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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:

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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

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 ...

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 ...

The System Preferences appear to be stored in various places, depending on whether they are user or system specific. A lot of them are stored in either /Library/Preferences/ or $HOME/Library/Preferences/ (for per-user settings). But each preference pane will have its own way of storing them. You can see which preferences are stored this way by typing: ...

I generally think the command idea is a bad one, because it is intended to be the system key for app manipulation. Cmd-l appears to be unbound in the application menus, but I couldn't use any tricks to view what it's keycode may be. Thus, I would suggest Shift-Ctrl-a. Having said that, if I understand the man page, and a resource on the Ubuntu Forums on the ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.*

I think this issue is specific to Lion. You can't even get to the info screen for an Exchange calendar, to make the colour choice shown in the screen shots here. Googling, I turned up the following Applescript to accomplish the task: tell application "iCal" set color of calendar "Calendar" to choose color default color {0, 0, 0} end tell
