You will want to try excluding ports TCP 721-731 as these tend to be the source ports for printing. TCP 515 is the listening port for LPD jobs. Source (in the FAQ/questions section at the bottom)

I have a similar ongoing problem with a late 2012 iMac and a mid 2014 15". I've found that signing out of and back into iCloud is a temporary fix. My suspicion is that new Airdrop leans heavily on a lot more services than original Airdrop. Another option is to Select 'Don't see who you're looking for' in the Airdrop windows on both machines and select ...

This is how you route specific traffic over an interface sudo route add google.com en1 (en1 is the interface). In order to find the interface use ifconfigcommand, run the command before and after connecting VPN and determine on which interface the VPN is running. A similar question has a detailed answer.

This MacSales article covers how to do this very well: http://blog.macsales.com/18406-speed-time-machine-past-88mph-over-your-local-network Essentially, you start with a fresh Time Machine backup. Start it on Wifi, then stop it, as it begins to backup files. This basically establishes the Time Machine archive. Then you attach your hard drive (or laptop) ...

When i get these messages any DNS lookups made using discoveryd fail (Chrome and nslookup work). Workaround: sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.discoveryd.plist sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.discoveryd.plist

Same problem here. IMHO it's a bug in OSX. Unplugging/plugging kicks something in the OS and then it comes back to live.

It could also be a problem with the text-encoding of the /etc/hosts file: https://superuser.com/questions/541961/mac-os-x-mountain-lion-cant-ping-telnet-localhost-point-to-a-wrong-public-ip

This question was asked a while ago, I'm not sure if you've solved the problem. If you have, please enlighten me! I've been having the same issue (not quite every time, but almost every time I turn my Mac on). As with you, the location is my hometown. I've done some Googling, somewhat ironically, and it seems to be a security issue with OSX Yosemite causing ...

I suggest using Teamviewer software (https://www.teamviewer.com/en/index.aspx) and install on all computers wishing to access the Mac as well as the Mac itself - this has worked very well for me in the past, and as a bonus they will be able to access the Mac from mobile devices etc. if the need arises.

Check to see if your time and date are set correctly. Safari will have all sorts of trouble including with certificates when the time is off.

You can rule out your laptop for being the problem by resetting wifi configurations. Do Step 1, it's relatively safe. http://osxdaily.com/2014/10/25/fix-wi-fi-problems-os-x-yosemite/

Without special software or hardware to do so, multiple connections are not combined for increased throughput, knowing as bonding. The connections are utilized in the order shown in System Preferences > Network (screenshot below). You can change the order by clicking the gear icon > Set Service Order. There is no harm in letting the computer connect to the ...

I ran into this issue as well on my iMac, but since I have dev servers running in a VM all the time, I don't put my machine to sleep, so for me, the problem was fixed by how I am using my Mac. However, I also have a MBP where this problem would crop up every now and then; especially when the MBP would go to sleep. However, you may wish to try enabling and ...

The Airport does not have an Audio Input. It's audio-feature is essentially being an AirPlay receiver. Do your plan will only work when playing your source material from a device that supports AirPlay.

IMHO...The is one hardware piece (card/chip) and one of each networking protocols. For example you can only have one WiFi active, or one Ethernet and so on. Some work in parallel when the Networking protocol does not interfere.

When you were at the office, did you use a different network like a AT&T/Verizon/Sprint hotspot? Next time, try testing at a Starbucks or another public wifi first. More than likely the VPN server dosen't allow loop backs (meaning you are in the network to start, go out, to come back in). It probably just connected you. What VPN (server) are you ...

That function seems to be limited to only Apple devices. Why? I wish I could explain why Apple does what it does sometimes. Anyway, there is a utility called "airport" which can be accessed from Terminal: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/airport -h (that command will print out the help page.

Other than your self-found answer, my suggestion would have been to get an Airport Express base station and take it with you all the time. All it is requiring is an extra power outlet. Any other router would possibly do as well, but the Airport Express is fairly small and fits into almost every pocket. Since you frequently do presentations and it can be ...

Seems I was wrong about Apples Internet connection sharing, you can in fact share an inactive connection (eg internet), and create a Hotspot that Android can see in that way. An example is at this site: https://gigaom.com/2008/05/22/create-a-wifi-hotspot-share-your-internet-connection-in-leopard/

Wi-Fi has multiple channels, which specify what frequency the network is communicating on. On the 2.4GHz frequency, channels 1, 6, and 11 are non-overlapping channels, and all the others overlap on these channels. (On the 5GHz frequency, the channels are spaced out to avoid overlapping). You can think of channels as an offset value from 2.4GHz. Current ...

The 'more details' button should at least tell you who it's trying to contact, from which you may be able to decide whether to allow. Possibly the main connections floater would give you more data… You could always drop in a request to obdev or even see if there's anything in the forum I agree it would be a useful addition, to know what app is calling ...

try switching the channel to something < 149 on your 5ghz radio.

There is no need to route anything. Just let the python-server also listen to incoming UDP packets at eth2 (192.168.20.1) assuming eth2 is the TB-Ethernet interface.

If this is OS X, it is quite possible the system has running virtual machine such as Parallels or VMWare running Windows. Windows runs bunch of open ports that are not used by OS X. Closing virtual machine should close those ports. Check also (netstat -a -p tcp) if source (local) and destination (foreign) addresses do not include 'localhost' in the ...

Your router needs to forward the required ports to your NAS. AFP: 548, 427 SMB: 445 Then you can connect to your NAS the same way you do now, but you'll have to use your EXTERNAL IP. If your external IP is dynamic (regularly changing), I'd recommend using a service like dyndns (which keeps track of your IP and binds it to a domain).

Thanks to Postfix not working on MacOS Yosemite I managed to find the solution… I tweaked my hosts file from fe80::1%lo0 localhost to fe80::1%lo0 127.0.0.1 & the 9 second respawn has vanished.

emond (Event Monitor Daemon) is just a "proxy" here.

Problem was some weird DNS servers that have been configured. No new DNS names could be resolved. That's why it seemed that surfing the web does work - My usual web pages did work, but new ones did not. I replaced the DNS servers with OpenDNS and everything works now as expected. I don't know how the DNS servers were configured, but this resolved the ...

Probably some permissions and/or the settings are set wrong on your Raspberry. I suspect the external drive or a shared folder on the external drive to have wrong permissions set. Compare that with the your home folder on the Raspberry where you probably have full r/w access. Please try this as a first step. You may apply special settings/configs later. ...

You can use iptables to redirect user to port 80 when they open your IP on their system Eg. It will redirect the requests on port from 8080 to 80. Since to access the port below 1024 you need to be super user. So, you can allow the user to connect to port 8080 and redirect to port 80 /sbin/iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 8080 -j REDIRECT ...

It appears to be a common issue until ~ OS X 10.10.3. I'd say your only option is to upgrade when it comes out or do a clean install of 10.10.2 and see if that works out for you. I can understand that you'd rather not do a clean install but it does actually solve a lot most of the time.

I recommend FileExplorer Free. I just installed it to access files that I wrote on a SD card in my WiFi router. I have an iPhone and iPad. FileExplorer can use CIFS, SMB, FTP and others. It can read many formats such as PDF, video, photos, music and Microsoft Office. There is priced version for five dollars.

Does your router support VPN passthrough? You can then setup OpenVPN on the Mac and use port forwarding on the router.

I have a Drobo 5N, and it's network name is "Drobo5N" - I get this error occasionally, and I have noticed that when I get the error, and I look in the Finder, my Drobo is named "drobo5n" (all lower-case). I have not found a way to fix this without rebooting my computer... but, I'd love to find one. (I do not have to do anything to my Drobo - just reboot my ...

With airdrop it is always a direct connection (usually wifi or a mix of wifi + bluetooth) between the 2 devices. No internet connection is required at all. So you can transfer as much as you like and it will all be local between the devices; "peer to peer" like you say. Your internet quota won't be used at all.

Is it at all possible that the campus network does not broadcast it's SSID? Try this, go into Settings -> Wi-Fi and tap on "Other..." Type in the name of the campus WiFi network and its password. Will that allow you to connect?

Your issue is being caused by OS X's handling of a wi-fi parameter commonly referred to as roaming threshold. This parameter dictates the point at which an OS will switch to a stronger signal. Windows gives easy access to this parameter, example here, but no simple option exists in OS X. This document from NYU suggests OS X has "aggressive" roaming ...

Probably your DHCP Server uses the wrong network interface to propagate the leases after building the bond: Open Server.app and connect to your server Click in the left pane on Advanced -> DHCP Open the DHCP network in question by double-clicking on it or highlight it and click on the pencil at the bottom Check the 'Network Interface'.

Seems I finally found the solution (after trying so messing so many things up due to other solutions): Using "Internet Accounts" to add a CalDAV account for the server.

I do it by simply setting up in my Network control panel… The 'incoming' side (Ethernet 1) as automatic, DHCP (so it picks up whatever info it needs straight from my ISP) & the outgoing 'shared' side (Ethernet 2) as full manual (based on what the other networked machines would normally expect to see from my dedicated gateway), IP address 192.168.0.1 ...

Another option if both of the machines are in the same network. You can use netcat on both machines. Remember though, do not use this anywhere else where security is a concern as netcat is fast because it does not have any security layer. You can install window's netcat here: http://joncraton.org/blog/46/netcat-for-windows/ and on Mac you can use brew to ...

Honestly, if something fast like USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt are available to you, get yourself a small 64GB SSD and a USB 3.0 enclosure, or this (expensive, but a very good long-term investment if you have Thunderbolt. It's actually just a Thunderbolt to SATA adapter, with a fancy name. There are other options, this is just the only one I'm familiar with. ), and ...
