The short answer is "Yes." You can enter your credentials within Terminal. You have to use the networksetup command That's if you can get to terminal... If you can, then the following will help get you connect. But, if you can't, scroll down the bottom for an alternate... However, you have to have a create an 802.1x profile for which to connect to your ...

In my case the problem was IPv6. Websites like Facebook, Google.com and Youtube use IPv6 and work fine while other's don't support it yet. I couldn't figure out the issue exactly (and the right configuration for IPv6) but I disabled IPv6 and the issue was resolved. This is all I care at this point. The commands for El Capitan: Turning off IPv6 support ...

You can try to run a proxy server locally, and change your Network preferences to point to that proxy, and check in the proxy logs to see if the app sends its request through it. I would suggest using Charles. It's quite easy to use: just change our proxy settings in Network preferences to either HTTP proxy localhost:8888 or SOCKS proxy localhost:8889, and ...

There may be several different ways to accomplish what you're asking however I'll just through this out there. I have a MacBook Pro that doesn't have a built-in Ethernet Port so in my examples I'll use Hardware Port: Wi-Fi since I tested this in both examples below and it worked, however you can change it to Hardware Port: Ethernet if that is what the ...

I use the following script to toggle internet sharing on an early 2011 MacBook Pro / 10.11.3 El Capitan, so with newer hardware you might get away with shorter delays. It adopts ideas from several scripts posted for this purpose (localisation, turning wifi on/off using networksetup, close System Preferences when done). tell application "System Preferences" ...

There have traditionally been issues with using Mac OS X Server and internet sharing on the same machine. The situation has improved with recent release of both the OS & Mac OS X Server. On Lion, the best I can suggest is to set things up in internet sharing, then never open the internet sharing settings in the preference pane again (this is what usually ...

In my case after running a ping test for a minute, I observed variable lags and fluctuations among ping times. Results were in 30-600 ms range. After reading Zach's response I moved apple tv and the wifi router to the same power strip and isolated power supply from my computer .. Voila! :) Ping times are now in a stable 3-8 ms range and streaming is smooth. ...

The ipfw firewall has been replaced by pf in Mac OS X Lion and later. Try looking at the man page for pfctl to start. An old, but still good cheat sheet for pf As for debugging network connections on the Mac, I would run netstat to see what ports had listeners. And possibly sudo lsof -i to see which process had which port open.

I have been having the same problem. Changing the name of the SSID fixes it immediately. But if I ever happen to switch off the router and switch it back on, the problem recurs and I have to think of yet another name.

You Mac is getting a single IP address on the LAN. To enable multiple devices to access the LAN, it creates a new private network on the Wi-Fi interface, and does NAT (Network Address Translation) between that network and the LAN. This is the same thing that happens when you connect your LAN (using private addresses) to the Internet using a router that gets ...

There is no need to use the same network. Usually you can simply populate your DNS-server with the IPs and the names of the hosts in the 192.168.2.0 network. If you restricted allowed DNS queries to a particular network (i.e 10.0.100.0/24), you have to extend this to the 192.168.2.0/24 net. In the network settings of the devices in the 192.168.2.0/24 ...

The old driver probably doesn't work with El Capitan. As indicated on the Linksys website Belkin is working on creating a Linksys driver package for the OS X 10.11. Meanwhile you may try the RealTek beta driver here.

It is possible to use Wireshark with monitor mode enabled to essentially do the job of airodump-ng. This will allow for capture of raw 802.11 frames which will show the traffic from APs and clients. It needs to be remembered that the WiFi device can only listen on one channel at a time so you'll only see the traffic on the channel it's set to. You can choose ...

Your router is not responsible to route packets from 192.168.0.0 to 192.168.56.0, but the VM host is. You have to keep the static route 192.168.56.0 -> 192.168.0.2 on the router though. I don't know what's the purpose of the second route 192.168.57.0 -> 192.168.0.2 - probably a second NAT adapter on the host. To reach your VM from other OS X devices in ...

I had the same missing shared device problem. I actually stumbled into a quick fix. 1) In Finder select "Go" then "Connect to Server" 2) in the dropdown list on the right side to the right of the server address there's a drop-down icon. I clicked on it and it showed a "Recent Servers" list. I figured I'd see if an old connection would work. I clicked ...

A little late , but I did get this working. In ipsec.conf, I had to update the ciphers and the rightauth.

I have found a fix, but I'm not sure what it did to correct the naming issue. While I was researching it I came across the method of connecting to a server by making a bookmark in a browser address bar.

Disconnecting from WiFi Networks sudo ln -s /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/airport /usr/local/bin/airport sudo airport --disassociate Run these commands in Terminal. Your WiFi will disconnect, while the AirPort Network Interface remains enabled.

I am experiencing the same problems with both a MacBook Air and a MacBook Pro. Disabling and re-eanbling the Wifi on the computer fixes the issue temporarily. iPad and iPhone are able to connect without any problems.

the replacement is pf, see man pfctl. also, see man dnctl for traffic shaping purposes. Apple's Network Link Conditioner utility (only available in their developer downloads section, behind a login) uses these two facilities to do its thing.

On a Mac the loopback interface only has the 127.0.0.1 address configured. You could always add an alias to the IP you need: sudo ifconfig lo0 alias 127.0.0.123 Your python code worked for me then. To delete the alias do the following: sudo ifconfig lo0 -alias 127.0.0.123 To make this persistent over reboots create org.local.localhost.plist in ...

I created a script and launch agent to accomplish the same thing. This method avoids that message(tested on OS X 10.11.3). The agent calls a shell script every 30 seconds and tries to ping an IP address that is static on the vpn network. If it cannot ping that IP it enables your vpn connection. If you did this through an Apple Script App, the app icon will ...

This panel that you are viewing just shows all available network interfaces, whether they work or not. Theoretically it should work. However, I don't think it works Mac to iPhone but I have tested it reversed with Personal Hotspot and it seems to work. Albeit very slowly. Hope this answers your question. Cheers! :)

I'am using an Airport router along with another router (modem). I had no problem for years and it recently become so annoying my experience tell me that the router need to be retired. I do a hard reset first - if it works I will keep it.

I've had similar problems with macbooks. I've found that going into "Network Preferences" / "Location" / "Edit Location" and creating a new location can work. Here's another option: set your IP manually to an IP the router will accept, instead of by DHCP. If your other devices connect at 192.168.1.25, for example, configure yours to 192.168.26 (keep it ...

I've got a very similar name in my Finder sidebar as well. It's an HP product (mine's a printer) that is on your local network that has been setup to be accessible over the network. It disappears when the printer is not powered on. As "smoooosher" said, its name is identical to the MAC address of the device.

Apparently this problem can occur for many different reasons. In my case it was solved by re-launching the finder. A description and solution for this was at http://www.cnet.com/news/fix-shared-computer-not-found-in-finder/ .

No. The wifi and the 3G can't be brought up at the sale time on an iPad. But you could turn on wifi when you need to print and get back to 3G after that, or use a service as google cloud print to print documents from the Internet that would require a computer connected to the internet and to the printer.

From reading your question I get the impression that you're doing everything correctly and the Cisco VPN Server has the option to allow saving of passwords client-side set to disallow. I know for certain that such a setting exists.

So there's a lot going on here, but the reason you can't get online with a static IP address even though the settings match your DHCP-provided address is (at least based on those screen shots) probably related to your DNS settings. There's no reason that a Time Capsule should deny access based on whether a client is DHCP or static. When you provide a valid ...

It sounds like something in the network is blocking nonstandard DHCP traffic, including the requests a NetBoot client uses to find the server(s). When you start a Mac with the Option or N keys held down, it'll first do a normal DHCP transaction to get an IP address, then send a special "BSDP" (Boot Service Discovery Protocol) request, which is really a DHCP ...

The airport extreme should be connected as just a device with the cisco router handling DHCP and NAT. in the airport configuration go to the Network Tab and click the double headed arrow under Router Mode set it to "Off(Bridged Mode) You can then go to Wireless and set that how ever you want all traffic will go to the cisco router and either be forwarded ...

There is no way for the Airport Extreme to forward the request on it's own. The router is there to forward traffic from your local network (LAN) out to the Internet (WAN) on an IP network. LAN traffic is routed with MAC addresses through a switch or Router. NAT allows the single IP of your router to be shared by the LAN clients through Network Address ...

You could try lots of things. Your carrier (the one you pay) might know how to help. You could get service with Sprint, associate the phone with that service and then get it unlocked. You could return the phone to the person and ask them to unlock it. I would keep good notes on what you try and then reach out to your local consumer watchdog resources. ...

Never game/stream on Wireless. Run Ethernet cable. Wireless bandwidth drops tremendously when another connection is streaming or gaming. It has to do with the way routers split or share bandwidth.

You should look into configuration profiles. Their contents are described here: https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/featuredarticles/iPhoneConfigurationProfileRef/Introduction/Introduction.html You can build two profiles, one with and the other without proxy, and you would be able to create a link to each. Add those two links to a single webpage, and ...

My idea (based on this) is a bit different than William's. It doesn't work with Fast User Switching but maybe one could use parts of William's stuff to mix it in. This shell script should be placed in /usr/local/bin executable and owner root. The different locations (in Network Preferences) must have the names of the users and must be configured/populated. ...

This should do it, although it may need some modification. Every time a user switches, a system log entry is created. Knowing this, you can monitor for user switches quite effortlessly: global wifi_device on run set wifi_device to do shell script "networksetup -listallhardwareports|grep -A1 'Wi-Fi'|grep Device|sed 's;Device: ;;'" end run on idle set ...

I tried to replicate your environment in a OS X 10.11 VM (including homebrew/cask and rvm). After some trying I have been able to reproduce the error at times.
