If it's every time you log in, it could be in your login items. Check System Preferences → Users & Groups → Login Items for links to those volumes.

This worked for me: Open this file in XCode: ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.sidebarlists.plist Look inside the favoriteservers container. Drag the servers into your desired order. Save the file. Log out. Log in. Done. Also! It sure looks like you have a separate value for Name and URL there! I haven't tried it but it certainly would be handy to ...

It's a personal hotspot created by an iOS device to share the cellular data connection that the phone has over Wi-Fi.

192.168.1.15/24 is a so-called slash notation, which specifies both the IP address and the network mask at the same time. It's an alternative but shorter notation, which says: your Mac's IP address should be set to 192.168.1.15 and the network mask to 255.255.255.0. In addition to that, you will need to enable the tftp server on your Mac. To do that, look ...

Client isolation. It is your enemy and your friend here. This makes it so not only can you not access your iPhone from your MacBook, but other devices on the network cannot access your MacBook or your iPhone either. There are a number of ways to implement client isolation on an IEEE 802.3 network and even more ways on a IEEE 802.11 network, but they all ...

So... There was another thing causing my portal to not load (redirect ACL). The DNS was a red herring, and the only reason we saw AAAA and not A requests was because the machine had already cached the answer for the A record. Finding that out was humbling... what a silly mistake! Anyway, no issue with the Mac here, but if you see similar behaviour, flush ...

If you have single WiFi card then you can not use it for receiving and sending WiFi. If your internet comes from cable (Ethernet) or from a USB -WiFi, then those can be shared using your WiFi card.

Synology does have this walk-through for doing what you want to do. I will mention that (quite some time ago) I used a Synology NAS as a time-machine target disk, and I did get it to work, but found it to be highly error-prone. Not what you want in a backup. Also slow. I'm using a drive with a direct USB3 connection now and am much, much happier with that.

There is a major difference in using IIS Express and the 'regular' IIS. The latter as installed by default in Windows. In short, IIS Express runs sandboxed on its host environment. This means by default it cannot be accessed outside. Luckily, you're not the only one asking this as it has been adressed on StackOverflow several times. In my opinion, with this ...

Per Apple KB article HT6175, AirPlay makes use of a number of ports: ╔══════╦═════════╦════════════════════════════════════════╗ ║ Port ║ TCP/UDP ║ Name ║ ╠══════╬═════════╬════════════════════════════════════════╣ ║ 80 ║ TCP ║ Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) ║ ║ 443 ║ TCP ║ Secure Sockets Layer (SSL, or ...

Why do you have to? Tradition, mostly. Once upon a time, restricting NFS to privileged ports (<1023) was considered a security measure. Back when people were using mainframe computers, this made sure that the NFS software on the client side was part of the OS/approved by the administrator, since a program can only use a privileged port if it's run by the ...

Phones are only blocked on this level for two causes that I'm aware of: The phone was stolen and the owner reported it stolen The phone was subsidized, and the owner stopped paying for it A stolen phone block will generally never be released, though it depends on the carrier. Some carriers may when presented with a police report or other similar ...

Does system preferences show a network connection? You'll be counting on it switching to crossover mode - it's possible the NAS is interfering with that. Are you defining a router IP within system preferences? Make your machine ip 192.168.0.100, router 192.168.0.1, subnet 255.255.255.0, then try a ping. If that doesn't work, post the output of this ...

In order to do this you need your Mac to be connected, by an Ethernet cable, to the router. In the Network control panel of System Preferences, set the following parameters for your Ethernet connection: Configure Ipv4: Manually IP Address: 192.168.1.15 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Router: 192.168.1.1 Press the "Apply" button in the control panel. Now ...

To ping multiple hosts with the red/green feedback image you need to run multiple instances of the ping geeklet. Just open ping.glet multiple times, enter a different host name each time and line them up on your screen to get the effect seen in the screenshot at the site you linked. You can rewrite the script to ping multiple sites but you'll only get one ...

You want to read up on loops in bash scripts. For example: HOSTS="hosta hostb hostc" for machine in $HOSTS do PING=`ping -q -c 1 $machine` if [[ $? -eq 0 ]] ; then TIME=`echo $PING |tail -1 | cut -d/ -f 5` echo ${TIME}ms away from $machine else echo $machine could not be reached fi done I didn't test that, but it's close enough. ...

As very every electronic devices, there are good ones and there crappy ones. Apple does not forbid the use off thrid party USB adapter. Most of the time if the device does't work, it isn't Apple's fault but a driver problem. So yes they should work.

Selfcontrol Selfcontrol is an app build for a different purpose, it disables your network connectivity for a certain amount of time to keep you from visiting social websites and keep you more productive. It makes it possible for you to create a white-list or a black-list to allow or block certain ip-adress/sites. So I login to the server, set Selfcontrol ...

Better than smb:// would be to NFS mount your shares over a private network interface running the virtio-net drivers. Once mounted, inside the host OS, you'd rsync in the data with: rsync /some/mount/point /home/myuser/ Or whatever you wanted. Someone already mentioned Vagrant and, on its own it won't speed up your VirtualBox setup, but it does make ...

Tyilo's NetworkAutoLogin project on github is an os.x daemon that "Automagically logs into to Captive Portal Networks" with user-supplied credentials. It uses PhantomJS & CasperJS to post the necessary info to the fields on the captive portal login page. Could be the secret login "password", a username-password pair, or just activating a EULA checkbox ...
