Hostname resolution in Mac OS X (since ~10.3) has roughly spoken - i exclude various cache mechanisms - the following operating sequence: 'Files' (e.g. /etc/hosts) -> mDNS -> DNS (search domains) -> DNS Valid names for the different name resolution methods: for 1: almost arbitrary names for 2: name.local for 3: name (+ search.domain in your ...

On your airport extreme you can block certain mac address for good with "No Access". In your airports configuration go to the "Network" tab and check "Enable Access Control", then click on "Timed Access Control". Then on the top add the mac address you want to prohibit and give it a description. Towards the bottom, On the "Wireless Access Time" drop ...

Pending how long was the last connection, you could find the answer in your Console log. I have it showing the information for last 7 days. Back to Dec 23. 2014 In Console type MAC in the search window. Look for MacAuthEvent In systemlog7.gz file. EDIT: If it is older than that: Use Terminal and type mdfind systemlog if it shows ...

You can use Network Link Conditioner. You will want to ignore the testing settings. Make a Custom Profile and set to have no packets dropped and no delay. Start with uplink and downlink at 2.45 Mbps each and see if you need lower limits to prevent disconnects. It is a free download in Xcode (go to Xcode → Open Developer Tool → More Developer Tools… and ...

You answered it yourself. You had both AFP and SMB network sharing protocols enabled. Thus your mac was presented as two network devices. Notebook icon is for AFP shares and generic PC one is for SMB. No need to worry about that since it is normal behaviour.

Setting up VPN isn't necessarily as straight forward as one would hope. The first issue is how to pass the connection from your router to the OS X Server. That is done via port forwarding in the router to your server's static (or reserved DHCP) IP address inside the network. To make the connection work, you need to know your WAN IP address. If you're using ...

The issue may be the order in which your Mac is looking to connect to a network. You network preference pane should list options like these for connecting to networks: First check what the status is for your ethernet connection. Mine says "Cable Unplugged" because it is. If your says it is plugged in, but your connectivity is still via Wi-Fi, click the ...

Unfortunately not; Not without using another router with network Access Control Lists (ACL). Airport's Timed Access Control rejects all connection attempts to the access point from selected device based on it's MAC address. It doesn't give you any options for more granular Access Level Control in order to specify network resources the device will have ...

According to Apple, the AirPrint on iPhone is simplified application. It only lets you chose the printer, the number of copies, but not print quality etc.. in other words it use the current Printer defaults. So what can you do? Log in to the printers set up page IP address that you need to know it first, but it is something like (192.168. xxx) and change ...

Long term, the way to fix this is to opt in to sharing your logs and crashes with Apple and reporting this as a bug at http://bugreport.apple.com Short term, you can choose a different network (probably a bad option) or suppress IPv6 (also probably bad long term) or try and disable the error logging entirely (probably bad). 4k lines of error messages isn't ...

I found the answer. Something in the side bar preferences was messing with the system. I deleted this file from the 2013 MBP (which could not see the other machine or network drives): ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.sidebarlists.plist and rebooted. Then everything came back online and started working.

@klanomath's answer explains perfectly how name resolution works, why your attempt did not and how you can create a pseudonym on your local machine for a static address through the /etc/hosts file. However, if myserver does not have a static address but rather is assigned one dynamically (e.g. by DHCP), then /etc/hosts is not ideal as one must find some way ...

I found a fix. I had the same problem after installing OS X Server. Simply put, I did the following: Go to ~/Library/Preferences and find the file com.apple.sidebarlists.plist Copy the file for backup purposes and open original with Xcode Leave the following items and delete the rest: finderprojects favoriteitems systemitems savedsearches Go to the ...

Had the same problem. Turning off all antivirus temporarily and firewall seemed to fix it

You can use the lsof command to figure out what IPs/ports are being accessed by a process, but first you'll have to figure out the process ID (PID) is for your poker software. You can use Activity Monitor (in the Utilities folder inside of Applications) to find out the PID. It should show up in the CPU tab, but if it doesn't, you can add it by right clicking ...

to easily disallow any or all others from accessing your network, change your network password in Airport Utility. there's no need to block or allow IPs or MAC addresses IF there's trust for those with password access. open AU select your primary device it should open a new window with the Base Station tab selected by default enter or change password ...

networksetup is a configuration tool for network settings in System Preferences. event I don't really known what the ShadowsocksX project is, but I decided this command can help up. PS: if you just need to set the proxy for something like wget, or curl, then you can use the fairly universal 'http_proxy' and 'ftp_proxy' env variables. export ...

Parallels like other virtualization software for Macs uses a virtualized hardware layer. This layer doesn't have direct access to the real hardware (Type-2 Hypervisor). This includes the Wi-Fi-interface. Instead software ethernet bridges are used to access the hardware indirectly. That's the reason for the network interfaces of the Mac (e.g. en0: ...

I found it. Apple uses http://www.apple.com/library/test/success.html More information can be found at http://blog.erratasec.com/2010/09/apples-secret-wispr-request.html#.VLA9UsabLOY The advantage of using a no redirect URL is that you can determine which state you are in: Connected Connected to Wi-Fi but Internet is inaccessible due to Wi-Fi router ...

For most purposes, the following is good enough for most situations: sandbox-exec -n no-network command However, it's not more effective—there's numerous ways of apps escaping the sandbox. Little Snitch also lets you be more specific with what you are blocking—specific ports/etc.

And it runs on linux, windows, android, or even iOS. It's a npm tool called proxy-checker (https://www.npmjs.com/package/proxy-checker). Enjoy.

This is quite easy. Open wireless networking and remove the password for any/all networks you don't want to join and then toggle the Wi-Fi off and wait a dozen seconds or so before turning it on again. The Wireless radio will be on and ready for handoff or AirDrop but not joined to any network/SSID. The computer will work fine with wired ethernet and a ...
