It worked for me and I am way impressed! I read so many posts that suggested resetting the router or the shared secret, which strikes me as an absurd solution to a solving the problem of a single device on a network malfunctioning. As a network manager, I don't want anyone who suggested that working for me, let me tell you! I do want the person who came up ...

As you mentioned, smbutil lookup will resolve the name to an IP address: $ smbutil lookup qx-2000 Got response from 10.0.1.21 IP address of qx-2000: 10.0.1.21 We can extract the IP address from this output: $ smbutil lookup qx-2000 2>&1 | tail -n 1 | cut -d : -f 2 10.0.1.21 Then we can use that in our argument to ping: $ ping $(smbutil lookup ...

tl;dr Turn off DHCP Reservation on the router/modem in DHCP settings. My kids both got computers from school. One Macbook Air and one Dell Chomebook. Neither would get a DHCP address on our home network but worked fine everywhere else. After reading this forum and trying all things with no success the solution turned out to be turning off DHCP Reservation ...

Recovery mode needs a netboot server (like OS X server app) to serve up that image. You could set one up or you could copy the backup instance to a USB drive and connect it locally. For netboot, I'd recommend deploy studio as your go to solution in terms of ease of use and robustness of the solution. Also, if you just need user files and applications, you ...

I didn't see you mention iTunes at all in your post. iTunes is essential. Unfortunately, AFAIK, you can no longer just "share" movies from iTunes to ATV. You have to turn on Home Sharing, and I believe this requires a live internet connection. Both iTunes and ATV log into Home Sharing, and everything loaded in iTunes is available on the ATV. If you do ...

Yes, they will download even in slow Wi-Fi connections. There is no option to choose an Wi-Fi connection to do the automatic downloads. You can only disable the downloads on Cellular Data on Settings / iTunes & App Store / Use Cellular Data.

When you enable automatic downloads, your iPhone will download new content over every WiFi network. I believe that it will also download over your data connection when not connected to wifi. But only when the files the iPhone tries to download are below 10 MB.

This is not a fix but information sharing. My mavericks Firewall has following settings Use the + to add and allow connection. I set my VLC to Block for demonstration purpose.

In the link you showed, it states that WiFi signal will be disabled for the AE, providing only ethernet conection to a device wired into the AE. Let's say it would only saves you from installing a long ethernet wire, but it is not an active part of your wifi network for other devices other than the phisically conected. So, your wifi devices will not be able ...

There's also a way to do this from the command-line if you're a network administrator looking for a way to do this in a batch: networksetup listallnetworkservices # look for the correct network device here, probably "Wi-Fi" sudo networksetup -setdnsservers Wi-Fi 8.8.8.8 8.8.4.4 Replace "Wi-Fi" with the correct network device. You may, instead, wish to ...

The easiest way to be sure that all your clients' backups are encrypted is to create an encrypted sparse (bundle) image using Leopard (10.5) on the server using hdutil. The newer versions of OSX should be able to read/write to the older encrypted volume without a problem. Here is an example using a Linux AFP server... ...

Despite very vague information on Apple's own website, it is not possible to extend Apple-based networks with non-Apple products. Apple only states: "Wi–Fi base station - Any variety of AirPort Extreme Base Station, AirPort Express, or Time Capsule." from this article - http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202056

It looks like you might be looking for something like this: NetUse Traffic Monitor By Prime73 Inc. Found on Apple Store.

PeakHour on the Apple Store can use snmp to monitor the bandwidth usage of network routers (including AirPorts). I don't know if can measure individual clients though. Larger scale you could use something like Cacti to monitor all of your devices and graph their statistics such as open connections, bandwidth, etc.

In my case (iMac trying to access files on a Win7 machine) the solution was to add permissions for "Guest" to the Win7 directory. This was previously not necessary. The directory was shareable to everybody and it worked. But apparently now the iMac is trying to connect as "Guest" and adding permissions specifically for "Guest" ...

When you log into any wifi router, immediately thereafter the OS (iOS or MacOS) tries to resolve the DNS for www.apple.com, and then attempts to navigate to this page: apple.com/library/test/success.html (Or one of a handful of similar ones distributed around the 'net.) The page is very simple and basically just responds with the word "Success". If they do ...

Quit ARD if running, and go to [your home]/Library/Containers. Move the folder com.apple.RemoteDesktop to your desktop and see if ARD Admin still has startup issues. If it starts working properly you can trash the com.apple.RemoteDesktop folder. Note this will reset ARD and lose any custom UNIX commands you may have set up, back those commands up first ...

Do you get the same result when starting up in safe boot? This could either be an Ethernet driver or a hardware issue. One of the first things to try is perform an SMC reset (shift-ctrl-alt-power). I usually go a stage further and disconnect the battery for 10 minutes, this can clear SMC-related issues that the official method doesn't always cure such as ...

I had this problem too but the solution is really easy Let's suppose you create an Alias in the host file to your machine with the name localhost2 That entry in the host file should look like this: 127.0.0.1 localhost2 When you type "localhost2" in the safari url bar you will notice in the dropdown that the default option is to search that in google, ...

WiFi signal strength only tells just that, the strength of the signal. It is a prerequisite to have a good connection. How ever that does not tell you about the Quality. If you have high interference (from devices or Neighboring networks) then your RSSI will be high. It should be <70 or better (the lower the better). Then there is the Transmit Rate ...

There shouldn't be a way to have two identically named files in the /etc folder. Can you do a Get Info on the original and verify the Name & Extension (and that the extension is not hidden, and that there are no spaces at the end of the name)?

The best way I have found to change hosts settings is to: 1) Make a duplicate (which you already have done) 2) Move the duplicate to a new location, such as the desktop 3) Make another duplicate on the desktop and rename it "hosts ORIGINAL" so you know it is the original hosts file, in case you need to revert back. 4) Make the changes to "hosts" on the ...

Usually only the root user is allowed to modify the file hosts. To do that and fix your hosts file or your /etc folder (depending where you applied your read/write permissions) follow these steps: Throw away your newly created hosts file (but not the old one!) Repair your permissions with Disk Utility. Open Terminal and enter sudo nano /etc/hosts and hit ...

Just Change what you want to change on the duplicate, then replace the old hosts file.

your looking to do something like what the Wavespot (router) does, its a social wifi authentication gateway that allows people to sign into a wifi network using email or Facebook 'Like' (or twitter or Google Plus). Good service and we use it for a few of our agency (bluntagency.com) clients, predominantly shopping centre's.

Generally speaking, only the router should need any PPPoE login credentials, and all the devices on the local network would get their connection through the router (in your case the AirPort base station), with the router giving them local network information via DHCP. If other devices on the local network are working properly with "standard" wireless and ...

It was probably there before Yosemite but you did not see it. Usually when your Internet service provider requires it it will be used. PPPoE stands for Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet. PPPoE has become a favorite technology of broadband Internet service providers, who use it to save time and money. DSL and cable modem subscribers, on the ...

You could write a launchd that monitors the file path of: /private/var/db/dhcpclient/leases/ If you looking for DHCP changes to an interface. That db holds all the different interfaces and dhcp changes on them. Something similar to monitoring that file with a launchd here.

I enjoyed your screen shot. I just learned how to say прокси-сервер! I believe what you'd be doing is asking the proxy redirector to make exceptions to its exceptions. I think this will probably not be possible. There is a kind of tool which may work better for you. It is called a URL re-writer or URL re-director. Instead of setting up a SOCKS proxy, ...

This is very common problem in split-horizon DNS and heterogenous but Windows-dominated company networks. A lot of Windows sysadmins are used to the .local TLD as a valid private TLD name since at least a decade though it's not RFC-compliant anymore. When your local area network has been configured with a domain name ending in .local, then all LAN ...

I don't have that issue. Did you try flushing the DNS cache? Open a terminal and run this code: sudo discoveryutil udnsflushcaches Is your DNS server listed in you network preferences under Advanced > DNS ? If not, add the ip address of your DNS server there.

I do not have an answer of why this situation occurred. However, the problem was corrected by restarting networking: $sudo ifconfig en0 down $sudo ifconfig en0 up

Yes it will work. Just pop in a GSM SIM card. Even 2G and 3G will work without any flaw. I myself using one 5S 16GB.

I don't see any issue with this as long as both the Extreme and the second Express are run in Bridge mode extending the current network provided from the first Express. Whether that is possible will depend on what kind of signal each receives.

That menu bar looks like you're on Mavericks. You should upgrade to Yosemite and see if that helps. Speaking of which, if you haven't already, you should check how Internet-using apps that aren't web browsers perform, such as seeing how long it takes Dropbox to download a new file. If all else fails, you should go to a place with a newer router and see if ...

I have a similar set up (not same router). While using the same SSID, I noticed instability, probably due to randomness of who gets what. So now I have separate SSID for 2.4 and 5 GHz and I decide who connects to what.


0

Either way, the devices will not necessarily pick the strongest signal, they tend to hang onto the one they're on til they lose it completely. At least with separate SSIDs you can look at which it's attached to currently & force it over if necessary. Requires 2 sign-ins initially, but after that it will either look after itself, or you can manually ...

Spoofing a MAC address in OSX isn't as simple as it is in Linux so you may want to try using a python script such as SpoofMAC. Another way to configure/get info about network services in OSX is with the networksetup command.

If you set the IP-address where Charles is running as a proxy on your iPad you should be able to catch all traffic going to your iPad.
