Indexing can be enabled or disabled only on the root of the drive, so, "/Volumes/volName". You can read more about the command by typing man mdutil into the terminal. An excerpt: -i on | off: Sets the indexing status for the provided volumes to on or off. Note that indexing may be delayed due to low disk space or other conditions. Also, indexing ...

OS X follows these steps when mounting a drive: It creates a raw device in /dev/ (for local disks only), it creates a folder in /Volumes/, then it mounts the drive to that folder it just created. That folder creation step is probably what you read. The shell script you linked is missing the following command: mkdir /Volumes/somenetworkdir Then the command ...

I have been trying the free account for NoIP (noip.com). My Airport Extreme has accepted it without complaint, but I found that my Foscam IPTV cameras have a built-in DDNS client so I don't know whether updates are happening from them or the Airport. I am running 7.7.3 firmware on the Airport.

There are a lot of situations in which your phone, while connected via WiFi, might need to make a cellular connection. This would include normal communication with a cell tower, incoming calls, Visual Voicemail, or depending on your WiFi signal and performance, additional data from apps. Once you have reset your cellular data usage statistics, re-run the ...

The firewall blocks traffic from unsigned binaries. Your File System, Inc. distributes an OpenAFS installer which is signed and includes signed binaries and a signed kernel extension. You can obtain it from https://www.your-file-system.com/openafs-client-installer/download

I had the same problem. In advanced preferences, I removed xfinity completely (twice). The problem persisted. My answer is conjecture, but this would seem to be a job for Apple tech. support...as they can show you how to install and use adware medic. I believe this is xfinity marketing in action.

So this is the story. After spending two days smashing my head against this problem, I was on the phone with my girlfriend and she says "come on, disable the firewall! That's what bugs us in the workplace when something doesn't work". Well, I did it. And it worked. System's firewall seems to block afsd. Disabling the firewall solved the issue. Oh by the ...

If you'd like to add wired network (Ethernet) ports to your MacBook Air you have the following options: A single or dual Thunderbolt network adapter. Apple makes one, the MD463ZM, but only with a single network port. There are third party adapters that provided more than one port - for example the Sonnet Twin 10G. There are also Thunderbolt docks that ...

I've been doing exactly what you describe for 8 years, it works just fine. I assume you set up Server with your internal IP address, and that it is a fixed IP on the local network? Server does NOT like having it's IP address changed. The external address can change 10 times a day. You say you already have a domain and a dynamic update service - I assume ...

Ok, so it seem like that by going into "Disk Utility" and doing the sequence "Verify Disk Permissions"->"Repair Disk Permission" did the trick.

You can set up an Airport Extreme with a guest network {Apple.com}. This is entirely separate from your in-home network even though it runs on the Airport. In this case it would be kind of like setting up a home network 'DMZ' that keeps some services away from the main network at-large.

I have the same problem with my MacBook Pro Retina 13" 2014 on Yosemite 10.10.3 and 10.10.4 with Apple AirPort. My problem is not depended on bluetooth state at all. Wife's MacBook Air have no problems at all, looks like it does not support 802.11ac at all - only 802.11n. So I think the problem is in 802.11ac. Just found how to fix it – this is not good ...

You should clear all the proxy settings unless you know you need to route some or all internet traffic through one single point of failure and slowdown.

The first part is for testing. You need to use the terminal and manually connect to it.

It's not all about your device. It could be the games problem, just check your internet stuff then look further into the problems within the game's code. I'm not some master coder or anything so I can't really help you more than this.

(Cross-posting my Reddit answer here.) In my experience, it's more of an additional priority issue: IPv6. It hit me in Mavericks, but probably dates back to Lion. I develop on my local machine using /etc/hosts aliases to route requests through nginx, but on slow Wifi with slow DNS, it will often hit a 5-second timeout before bailing out on IPv6 and trying ...

Pick a random port from the outside world, forward UDP and TCP to port 548 of one device with an internal LAN IP. Pick another port for a second device, rinse and repeat. Forward 9898 to 548 of a Time Capsule, forward 9998 to 548 of a MacBook Pro, etc. For Charlies question, afp://my.no-ip.address:9898 will reach the TC, afp://my.no-ip.address:9998 will ...

For me, changing the DNS to Google DNS solved the problem. Google DNS is 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4. You can change DNS number in the modem/router settings or your own device on which you are connected to internet. If its your own modem/router better change it there. If it is public network where you don't have access to modem/router settings, you can change the DNS ...

OS X's firewall is very comprehensive, but it's GUI is limited, it can do what you want, but it's somewhat complex. I would try the following this guide http://www.techrepublic.com/article/configure-apples-built-in-network-firewall-with-icefloor/ For more advanced support you'd probably have more luck asking over on Server Fault (StackExchange) rather than ...

Little Snitch allows setting rules per process, server, port, etc. Furthermore, you can have multiple sets of rules, e.g. I have one that I use when I want all apps to have their Internet activity disabled except browser.

First, you need to set your system name in System Preferences > Sharing > Computer Name. Let's assume for now that you set it to MyComputerName. The next step is to make sure your computer name is not overridden by DHCP client (which is normally what happens and what you have observed - each time a DHCP server assigns and IP address to your computer, your ...

Port forwarding examples: When you set port-forwarding on your router, you pick a port number (or range of ports) and a single local IP address, ie. port 5900 and Ip address 192.168.0.2. So any internet traffic coming in on port 5900 gets sent directly to the computer on the IP address 192.168.0.2. Answered above, you've specified one of the IP addresses ...

I encountered this problem in Yosemite 10.10.3. I couldn't find the solution until I started to think outside the box. Most people don’t know it, but as default the ”/private/etc” folder and ”/private/etc/hosts” file permissions are set to ”read only”. So if you only change the ”hosts” file permissions to ”read and write” you still won’t be able to edit it ...

Ok, I've figured the problem out in my daughter's macbook. System>Network>Wi-Fi>Advanced DNS tab. I removed the existing DNS servers and used Google's 8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4.

Not a networking expert, but I tried using a switch in between the Mac and the VoIP phone, and it worked! No idea why the VoIP phone wouldn't work when plugging directly in to the Mac, but oh well - very happy!

You should install unbound and have that be your dns resolver on Mac OS X. Unbound supports DNSSEC. Next, you need whatever apps you want to use, to be aware of and respect the results of the DNSSEC validation that unbound does. As an example, SSH can use DNSSEC along with SSHFP to validate the fingerprint of the server that you are connecting to. ...

Set up your server as an internal gateway similar to the network configuration in this question: Router <-- ethernet (or Wi-Fi) --> Server <-- ethernet --> switch <-> internal network Then adjust all settings as outlined in my answer there: I assume the following IP-adresses/netmasks: Router: 192.168.0.1/24 Server: en0: 192.168.0.2/24 ...

The solution I found was to add a switch in between and to simple pull the cable when I want to restrict internet access for the others. Sadly there is no easy software solution.

OS X Yosemite doesn’t have support for natd binary or ipfw anymore. Instead pfctl is used.

Enabling the firewall changed the SSH/VNC connection IP. I changed it to the correct IP in the iOS VNC app, and can now connect even with Stealth Mode enabled on the client Mac. The Sharing Control Panel clued me in, as the IP shown wasn't the one entered in the VNC app:

I know this thread is old, but I'd like to leave here what solved the problem for me. You need to check if you have the same security in both access points. For example, I had one access point secured with WPA/WPA2 and another with WPA2 only. After changing both to the same, everything was fine. To check your access points' security, you can do this: ...

It might be something with the authentication process of the clients. Open Directory needs to be running on the server (try to delete and rebuild it) and this server must be assigned as a directory server in the the clients account preferences. You might be able to check permissions by accessing the a home folder via CMD-K and the AFP:// URL from the Finder ...

The scutil --dns command gives you all the network routing information you'll need to map hardware interface labels to network routes. A little awk and grep can pretty it up if you need to script the information or pare it down. Start with gripping for "if_index" if you're curious.

You can do this directly from any router with DD-WRT firmware, or a router with sufficient admin privileges. If you have an Airport router, the process is even simpler: http://www.macworld.com/article/1161672/limit_internet_access.html

Usually it's no problem to use the ethernet interface instead of the Wi-Fi interface, if the router/access point contains one or several ethernet connectors: Install an ethernet cable between your iMac and the router. Depending on your router you might have to enable/configure its ethernet interfaces. Open System Preferences -> Network. Configure IPv4 of ...
