First of all, to get the UUIDs of your network sets, use PlistBuddy and perl: /usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "print :Sets" /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist | perl -lne 'print $1 if /^ (\S*) =/' this should return the IDs of the network sets. For each set you can then get the name with /usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "print ...

The Apple Broadcom BCM94331CD adapter will add 802.11 a/b/g/n with Bluetooth 4.0 to an older Mac Pro, while the Apple Broadcom BCM94360CD adapter will enable 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac support (the primary difference between the two adapters being 802.11 ac). You can easily DIY by finding suitable parts on eBay or Amazon and following instructions on forum sites ...

Check your channel. If it's channel 12, it won't be visible, and if you're set to auto switch the channels, it could've picked up 12 on its own. Macbooks only detect 1-11 (just fixed my detect issue by switching the channel).

Try with "share internet connection from tap0 to computers using en0", which is actually what you want, tap0 being the vpn and en0 being wifi.

I think you could easily fix that whit a bit of applescript and "sed". I don't know how your original applescript looks like, but I assume you have a variable that contains the path /Volumes/someFolder/someFile.docx as you said, let's call that variable thePath. All you have to do is take thePath, remove /Volumes/ and add smb://Server/someParentFolder/ ...

In order to get ss, you would need to get the source code for iproute. Since you mention Red Hat linux, go onto a linux machine running Red Hat, and run the following command: sudo yum source iproute Now, copy over the source code to your Mac, and compile it. You could also go on the Red Hat packages site and get the source tarball. Note: I have not ...

It does need opening if you are trying to access your Caching server outside of your network. If you are only attempting to access it within the network, this port doesn't need unblocking externally.

You could use a product like SSHFS that uses MacFUSE, which would mount a directory on the remote SSH server as a filesystem, and all transactions over the wire would be encrypted. You can also use a utility like EncFS which is a file-based loopback encryption layer on top of an existing volume or filesystem like AFP. I would agree with the above poster -- ...

Essentially you have to make your server accessible behind a router with a frequently changing IP-adress with a fixed fqdn for the router and forward all http/https requests from the WAN to the OS X VM in the LAN. Set up dynamic DNS: Get an arbitrary name from a dynamic DNS service provider (like Dyn (not free) or NO-IP (free)) or depending on your ...

It turns out I had "Remote Login" disabled in System Preferences! The solution was: System Preferences -> Sharing -> Check the "Remote Login" box Although I also reformatted by hard drive and upgraded to Yosemite, so having a fresh version of Apache probably helped too.

Tl;dr For your Mac "lo0" is almost the same as the "me" is for you in your question! lo0: is the loopback address of your computer: wikipedia says: Implementations of the Internet Protocol Suite include a virtual network interface through which network applications can communicate when executing on the same machine. It is implemented entirely within ...

I suppose it's because looking up a .local hostname is basically a browsing request for Bonjour services; devices & services register themselves through multicast, so since foobar.local points to no IP (unless you create it), Safari probably never reaches the stage of testing a site's reachability. In your situation I'd rather a) setup a simple DNS ...

This line within your tcpdump is the answer: 15:23:33.181528 IP 192.168.2.1 > 192.168.2.2: ICMP 192.168.2.1 udp port domain unreachable, length 36 It means that your Firewall or another software playing the same role or your manual configuration of /etc/pf.conf blocked your DNS request from reaching your MBP. Turn off any filtering function one at a ...

After working with Apple, I have an answer. It looks like the 10.10.2 update changed your firewall settings. Try this: System Preferences>Security and Privacy>Firewall Options Scroll down the list till you find "screensharingd". If it's marked as block in coming connections, change it to allow incoming connections. Be sure to reboot your computer and you ...

This is similar to another recent question: Is Apple TV intelligent enough to stream directly from a NAS? As @tubedogg says, you need iTunes running on a Mac/PC in your network to share local files. You can only remove this requirement if you buy/stream everything from the iTunes store. Unless you hack your ATV. You can run something like PlexConnect on ...

Yes - Time Capsule is a fully functioning Airport and you can bridge, extend or perform any other function of Airport networking as needed without regards to there being a hard drive inside the unit. You needn't worry about changing the network topology and having Macs not find the backup. Even if you actually change the name of the Time Capsule or change ...

Home Sharing functionality operates through iTunes itself. If iTunes isn't running (even if the MacBook is), your iTunes library isn't available on the Apple TV. So plugging the hard drive into the modem won't do anything. Note the above is answering your question about your current setup. Purchasing an Airport router would change this answer, but you asked ...

What about something even easier? There's a great app for OS X called Concentrate that will block distractions for you for periods of time. In particular it'll block your access to apps when you want to focus so you can stop surfing Ask Different when you should be studying. Have it block Chrome, Safari and Firefox and any other apps you find distracting and ...

Go to System Preferences > Network, and click on Advanced. Go to the Wi-Fi tab (if you're not there by default), scroll through the list of networks until you find the one you want to forget, select it, and then click the minus sign at the lower left of the list of networks.

I actually figured out what I did wrong and I wanted to record it in case anyone else ran into this issue. The key for a setup like this is not to try and install it from anywhere but the Hardware IO Tool disk image. As soon as I did that, everything worked perfectly. Previously, I had yanked the PreferencePane and deployed it with ARD, telling it to ...

Symlinks are often destroyed by some archiving tools, especially by those built into some versions of PHP, for example. Try to pack and unpack an archive and check if symlinks are still alive. Also, symlinks won't be saved on NTFS or similar non-mac filesystem. Please check if symlinks get broken after you access the drive from Windows computer.

No. it's not possible to differentiate between different products of Apple just by their MAC address. You can, however, lookup hundreds of MAC addresses very conveniently - simply paste a list of MAC addresses and it will spit out the manufacturers.

Turns out that I'm special and the issue wasn't with pf at all. The problem was that postfix wasn't started! It'd still be interesting to know a way to test port forwarding though if anybody knows a tool for that.

It's not a direct answer, but why not set up dnsmasq somewhere on your 192.168 network and use that hosts ip for the dns server in the ipad config? It should be a viable workaround. If this extra network doesn't have www connectivity, make an entry for apple.com in the /etc/hosts file where dnsmasq runs. This should trick the ipad to thinking it's truly ...

Here are two things to check. 1). Do you have any encryption on your WiFi network? If so, I would recommend changing the password/key and using one that is at least 16 characters long and contains at least three of the four types of characters (lower case letter, uppercase letters, numbers, and special characters like "!", "@", "#", "$", "%"...). One ...

You do not need a script for tuning the WiFi on and connecting you, the OS X system does that already for you. If you look in Console (look for line containing Airport) and the lines after that will show it in action. Best is if you could publish that log in here to see why is it not working for you. Here are some choices for you: If you want a Scrip to ...

There doesn't appear to be a way to confirm that the client is getting a correct DHCP entry at this stage (no logs, etc). Packet sniffing helped. Basically, the incorrect options in DHCP was preventing communication with the Netboot server, but with no diagnostics on the client, it was fairly hard to troubleshoot. Managed to tweak infoblox settings ...

The quickest way to fix this issue is to add a simple space to the end of the name of the Apple TV. Restart the device and it will now show up without the bracketted number appended. My guess is that the Space acts like a wild card in the Bonjour Log and won't treat each instance of the apple TV as another instant of the last.

so it seems the problem is in the DD-WRT firmare upgrade. I downgraded to a previous DD-WRT and the issue is gone. It was a matter of lan switching not working. Downgrading back to DD-WRT firmware SVN revision 23919 fixed it.
