The computers are not being discovered by Bonjour; they're being discovered by NetBIOS. NetBIOS is a common network protocol that all IP-based devices use to announce themselves on the network. That includes printers, security cameras, phones, etc. It cannot be disabled on the infrastructure side (well, technically it can but this would break one of the ...

I have a home-grown script that uses a rather inelegant polling mechanism to identify open network connections, and takes action based on what it finds. In short, it turns my wifi on or off depending on if it's plugged into a LAN. This to avoid connecting our corporate LAN with our visitors wifi. It uses ifconfig to obtain this data. It's fairly easy to ...

I am experiencing the same problem. The issue is the router. There are a number of reasons why the router would do this....memory of the router is too small, too many connections for it to handle, to just poor quality components. The way you can verify that it is the router is by Pinging the router (which you did and it failed) Pinging another device on ...

I had this exact same issue where Little Snitch detected external AirPlayXPCHelper traffic on port 7000 but treated it as internal traffic. What I mean is that even though I had all external traffic marked as deny, Little Snitch continued to prompt me on each connection attempt until I set it to deny local traffic (just for testing purposes), obviously I do ...

I'd look at osquery for collecting that sort of data from a fleet of Macs. You might whip together something that's more narrow - but this will let you alert on disconnects as well as monitor / detect many other issues that will crop up on a daily basis. You might be a candidate for using Apple Remote Desktop to create lists of hardware and it reaches out ...

Try pmset -g. It will show you a list of process id's that somehow have hooked into the sleep or shutdown process.

This feature request is now active in their development. However, it can take some years to get it because of limited resources in their development. I will let you know when I get more pieces of information about the issue. There are some tickets which has to be solved before such a feature can be implemented.

It's possible to block Bonjour traffic by configuring pf to disallow: MAC addresses: 01:00:5E:00:00:FB – IPv4 33:33:00:00:00:FB – IPv6 IP addresses: 224.0.0.251 – multicast IPv4 address FF02::FB – multicast IPv6 address UDP port 5353 However, this will also impact your own regular and "desirable" hosts. One possibility is to configure a VLAN and set it ...

I had a fleet of MacBooks doing the same thing. What I eventually found out is that OS X has created a virtual interface called awdl0 or Apple Wireless Direct Link. I won't go into the details of how it works because there is a really good explainaition here. What we found was that if this interface was active we would have wifi dropouts and performance ...

After adding a port-forwarding rule (e.g. SSH TCP 10.0.0.10 2222 10.0.2.15 22) enter in the host's Terminal.app: ssh user_name@host-ip -p forwarded_port Example with the rule above: ssh user_name@10.0.0.10 -p 2222 Don't use identical ports in the rule (host's port ≠ guest's port) like in your screenshot. user_name has to be the name of a remote ...

If you have already paid for it or don't mind paying for it, Apple's OS X Server (available on the Mac App Store) makes setting up a DCHP server super easy. I don't know how well it will interface with your router, but if you have an Apple Airport router, it is decently easy to forward the DCHP requests to the server. Note that the version of OS X Server on ...

To get that working you have to be able to create an ad-hoc network with one of the two Wi-Fi interfaces. It works at least with Airport but only without any Wi-Fi security like WEP/WPA/WPA2. I don't have access to a RTL8188cus, so I don't know if its driver allows a "safer" wireless networking. Additionally you have to install a lightweight DNS/DHCP ...

Use VLANs. Put your wifi on one VLAN, and your internal network on another VLAN. Don't allow wifi users to access the internal VLAN, and make sure hard wired connections are on the internal VLAN. This lets your switch/router handle the job, instead of setting up individual routes on employee machines.

I tried many things suggested by google using phone data (and spent too much time). Nothing worked. Then unplugged router, let sit, plugged back in. Success! Should always start with turning it off and on again... I have a mac with El Capitan.

Routing issue The issue here is that both VPN connection profiles are in a 10 network, which officially comes with a /8 a.k.a. 255.0.0.0 a.k.a. 0xff000000 netmask. So when establishing both VPN connections at once, you end up with only one destination in the routing table for the 10-network. And that routing entry will route all 10.x.x.x traffic to the ...

If you have another Macintosh handy, it is possible to use target disk mode. Reboot the MacBook Pro with the 'T' key held down; this will make the computer act as an external hard disk drive, which you can plug into another Mac with a Firewire or Thunderbolt cable. Disassembly is unnecessary. Copy off any files you require, to a USB key, or burn to a CD ...

If you or somebody else can remove the HD from the laptop and mount it (not boot from it) in an external case or a HD Dock, the data might be accessible unless the disk has been encrypted.

With EAP-TLS, manipulating certificates, identity preferences and a single password entry all in keychain access can be done from the command line. Something like: security import ${PK12} -A -x -k login.keychain -P ${PW} security set-identity-preference -c ${CN} -Z ${FINGERPRINT} -s com.apple.network.eap.user.identity.default security ...

After much frustration with this same problem I found a way to actually use Airodump on my Mac terminal. What I realized is that all of the files that I can successfully execute are located in the directory path /usr/local/bin/ And it turns out that Airodump was actually on my computer, it was just stored in the path /usr/local/sbin And I was unable to ...

First - download and read the setup guides for your Time Capsule. See help.apple.com for your location and your model of time capsule. You should aim to replace your current WiFi (from your modem) with a new WiFi network (from the Time Capsule). You can extend your modem's WiFi with your Time Capsule's WiFi but this is usually more complicated and will not ...

Gigabit Ethernet is new technology in wired networking so if you're using a crossover cable, it will only work up to 100Mbps. Use a straight cable instead. In Wikipedia: An Ethernet crossover cable is a type of Ethernet cable used to connect computing devices together directly. It is most often used to connect two devices of the same type: e.g. two ...
