Yes, you'll use an app like Caffeine and use it's timer or script a watcher to remove Caffeine's power assertion after the time you specify. You can use the command line peset -g assertionslog to watch the progress of the machine into and away from sleep. You might even be able to use pmset to hard code the behavior you wish after reading the manual page a ...

Found the actual problem and the solution for it: the network preferences still remembered the office network as a WEP connection. This has however changed some time ago since I switched to more secure WPA2 encoding. I made the prefs forget the network and re-added it – now the security prefs correspond to the actual setting and the computer does ...

From the "Apple Watch User Guide" Apple Watch uses Bluetooth® wireless technology to connect to its paired iPhone and uses the iPhone for many wireless functions. Apple Watch can’t configure new Wi-Fi networks on its own, but it can connect to Wi-Fi networks you’ve set up on the paired iPhone. If your Apple Watch and iPhone are on the same network but ...

You can use fail2web, but, as this is only a frontend to fail2ban, is not easier to use than modifying fail2ban's text files.

Nothing much will change in regards to WAN exposure, as long as you're not configuring the server to proxy or route any traffic. Services intended for the LAN only should be configured to only run on the appropriate interface, regardless of whether there's a firewall in place. There is an increased risk if one of the externally facing services is ...

“Current Channel” means “Number of Networks Using the Current Channel”. Your current channel is channel 2. Your computer found 1 network that uses channel 2.

Yes. It uses the wifi networks already configured on your phone. Mine worked over my home network perfectly with zero configuration on my part.

Your problem might be a basic MacOS X network configuration one. Most probably if you are using the infamous Automatic network configuration. So as to clarify this point could you please make two ifconfig -a. One when your working VPN is built with VPN Tracker 8.

The account you are logged in as needs to be configured as an admin account, because the DNS settings affect all users on the system, not just the current user. If it is not an admin account, then you will need to authenticate every time you want to change the DNS settings. If you are logged in using admin account and still have the problem, then open ...

For anyone who runs into this, the folks on the DeployStudio forums posted the answer: afp://192.168.0.1/Volumes/NetRestore-Images/Repository when connecting to a share, don't use the full path to the share point.

By "Passport," I am assuming that you are referring to a Western Digital external drive, which you have been using to perform regular backups. I'm guessing that by "backups," you have been using Time Machine. Considering that this is a new issue, it is fair to say that the external drive has been formatted correctly for use with Mac OSX (i.e., Mac OS ...

If your router doesn't have a way to log bandwidth usage, your best bet would be to run every suspect app on its own. By that, I mean you should go into the App Switcher (double-press the Home button) and swipe upwards on all of the apps in that list. That kills all of the apps, so the only ones that'll be running are the ones you open afterwards. Kill all ...

If the video is already recorded, you could just share the video folder with the other Mac. If you connect to the 17-inch MBP from your 13-inch and log in as the 17-inch MBP user, you can have access to all the users files. You can open the videos on the 13-inch MBP and play them in e.g. VLC player. Or you could share one folder only and set it to read only. ...

Yes. You can. However the Apple Mac OS X operating system has SSH installed by default but the SSH daemon is not enabled. This means you can’t login remotely or do remote copies until you enable it. To enable it, go to ‘System Preferences’. Under ‘Internet & Networking’ there is a ‘Sharing’ icon. Run that. In the list that appears, check the ‘Remote ...

Yes, the SSH server on the Mac will still be accessible to an SSH app on the iPhone. The icon change does not really signify that the WiFi is connected or not - instead it tells you whether or not the iPhone detected internet access via WiFi. In this case it does not, and it is not necessary for it to do so, so the icon does not change. Just disregard the ...

@tubedogg's suggestion fixed my problem: make sure the iPhone has the Settings > Personal Hotspot screen visible when I attempt to connect with the Mac. I've done that now the last 5 or so times and it's worked every time.

The Scagg's method fixed this for me. It was only a problem when Time Machine failed to find the backup server on our network due to this annoying name change. Reverting the name back to the original in System Preferences dealt with the problem immediately. Of course I doubt if this is a permanent fix but it is an easy remedy. Many thanks Scaggs.

Your Macbook is bridging 2 different networks. The first, from your router, would presumably be 192.168.1.0 That would make the router itself 192.168.1.1 & it will then hand out DHCP addresses from 192.168.1.2 up to as high as .254 In order to prevent potential IP Address conflicts. Apple's Internet Sharing will use an address of one order higher for ...

It should not be necessary to "uninstall", "unload", or "quit" Tunnelblick to make your issue go away. In some situations, where the OpenVPN configuration itself is faulty (and it sounds like yours is), you might need to have Tunnelblick "Reset the primary interface after disconnecting". You can do that by selecting the configuration(s) you wish to modify ...

You have explicitly written that you tested both 2.4GHz en 5GHz, nevertheless I am still giving this as an anser. In short: In your new software setup, I think your bluetooth uses the same frequency as your WiFi, they are proberbly both on 2.4GHz. Change your WiFi to fixed 5GHz if possible or choose try 2.4GHz channels (some users see big differences on ...

Not a specific answer to the question, but one alternative is to use a FAT32 formatted USB stick. This is compatible with OS 9. Setting up an FTP server to migrate files back and forth is handy in the moment, but going back and forth between the two systems to turn on the server, connect, move files probably takes longer than just putting on the USB stick.

Is there an "Automatic" location? I can remember when I first got my Mac Mini I was having trouble with the networking. I set it to "Automatic" and it worked fine.

It's a combination of the Mac mini and the xfinity router. I've had this problem with multiple Apple devices over the years, but only when using the xfinity router. Do yourself a favor, buy a really good router and just use a cable modem. I guarantee this will fix the problem.

Not sure if you tried, but move it to different location, to see if it is a signal strength. Or turn all other devices off from wifi to see if you have channel crowding.

As mentioned in this Apple support document the following ports have to be open: Home Sharing uses TCP port 3689 and UDP port 5353 to communicate with shared iTunes libraries.

From the question: Create AirPort network from the command line? A program compiled from source code on https://gist.github.com/wolever/4418079 do works on 10.10, and it creates an infrastructure AP. But, it only allows a WEP password, which is not considered safe. So, I'll keep this question open for a better solution.

Your 10.9.5 and your Router are having problem of identity. Your 10.9.5 can not find the correct name, or your router is not broadcasting it correctly.

Also you could tell the router that your MAC address belongs to trusted ...

Mac OS 9 has no built-in support for Windows file sharing.

In System Preferences, go to networking and connect your Mac to a wired network.

It is likely the flawed SMB2 implementation in Mavericks. Try connecting to the share using cifs://server/share instead of smb:// and this will force the connection to use SMB1 which should be more compatible.

I had same problem with my Mac Mini. I changed network's name and Mac Mini recognized new network. It meant that issue was only with my Mac. I "forgot" this network (Settings -> Network -> WiFi -> Advanced (OS X 10.10.3), selected missing network and removed it from Preferred Networks) and connected to my network.

By default, your Mac will take the host name from the router when it received a DHCP reservation reply. You can change this by not using DHCP or fixing the router or as a last resort over-writing the host name once you notice it's gone amok: sudo scutil --set ComputerName whatever sudo scutil --set LocalHostName whatever

One possible problem is that randomly generating MACs will fail half the time. The first byte of a MAC address needs to be even (e.g. end in 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, A, C, E). So, for example, 3b:92:22:cf:55:7e wouldn't work because '3b' is odd. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MAC_address#Address_details for the details (even = unicast, odd = multicast).

The TP-Link website does state that the TL-WN721N wifi adapter is only supported by windows. However, you may be able to install drivers for the chipset of your adapter, possibly allowing it to work.
