I installed Yosemite under a non-admin profile on my iMac. I went into the Admin profile and made the profile I installed Yosemite under an admin as well. That seems to have fixed my connectivity issue for now.

While this might not help everyone, if you are running samba on the file server, you can add the following in your smb.conf: Veto files = /.TemporaryItems/._.TemporaryItems/.DS_Store/ The "Veto files" is a / separated string of filenames (wildcards also allowed) that is forbidden to be created. This resolved the issue for me. I found this trick on the ...

This solved it for me: Go to System Preferences -> Energy Saver. Select "Power Adapter" and then uncheck "Wake for network access". Ever since I did that a couple of days ago my computer name has stayed the same.

It's normal getting conection refused if you ftp or telnet to localhost, at least if you haven't up and running that kind of servers, and by default, you don't. The /etc/hosts should look like 127.0.0.1 localhost by default. To use apache and avoid the error you mentioned, you must add ServerName localhost to httpd.conf. Restart apache and should works ...

A Sonos requires that shared libraries are accessed over CIFS/SMB. From your path it looks like this link is for a share over AFP. Can you find a link for the SMB share from the airport extreme ? Looking at the Airport Extreme docs it seems that if you have an HFS formatted disk mounted then it will share over AFP and SMB you could try (just a guess) as a ...

This occurs when running two overlapping DHCP servers. If you are using more than one router (bridge-mode) then make sure only one of them is running DHCP without a static IP.

I hate to say this but I'm experiencing this as well. One solution I found (not known if it's permanent) is by going to System Preferences in the search bar you can type 'Computer name' and select it and then change it back by erasing the (2) or (3)

I know this is a month old, but check your ir remote. My Fios remote is programmed to control my Apple TV. If the Apple TV is on, the remote may be triggering the purchases when you use the up, down and menu keys on it.

The scan requests are the system (the airportd dameon) scanning for available WiFi networks. In reviewing the log, it seems to do it in earnest for a minute, then slow down for several minutes, then pick back up. I'm not sure why it is doing it so often, but as long as your battery life does not seem to be suffering and the system is not slowing during these ...

I think there is a bug between Yosemite and sleep servers. These servers reside in Apple TVs and Airports and act as a proxy for a sleeping machine on Wi-Fi. For now the only fix seems to be: System Preferences --> Energy Saver, and untick "Wake for network access" (or maybe it is "Wake for Wi-Fi access", or something, I can't remember). Shut down your ...

Figured it out. First downgrade JAVA to Apple 1.6 as mentioned by Joe L. Farina above. That actually does work in some situations, but if your VPN provider only supports an old version of Network Connect then it will continue to hang. To fix that, on the terminal run the following, then restart your computer: sudo nvram boot-args="kext-dev-mode=1" ...

The 100/24 Mbps are actually good numbers. The question is are those actually arriving at your computer. One suggestion I would make is for you to switch to 5GHz router/Network. That should eliminate lots of neighborhood interference. 5GHz also has much higher data transfer rate between your router and your computer. On Mac the Transfer Rate is shown in ...

It turned out that our Brother laser printer was responsible. Turning off wifi or properly configuring wifi helped to eliminate the "SETUP" wifi.

You need to disassociate the device before changing the MAC address. For en0, it will be: sudo /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Resources/airport -z sudo ifconfig en0 ether d4:33:a3:ed:f2:12 networksetup -detectnewhardware

A friend of mine had this happening to him after he upgraded to Mavericks. I managed to fix it by going to 'Network Preferences', then for the desired network open go to TCP/IP, and then choose 'Renew DHCP lease'. He had to do this for every network that his computer previously knew, but only once.

My previous response confirmed that the status had not changed since June (4 months ago). I also confirmed that the problem still exists in Yosemite. ie this is still an open issue without a known resolution. I've looked a bit further into this issue. The current version of CrashPlan is 3.6.4. To resolve this issue: - Download the current version - ...

File in use Error is supposed to prevent a scenario where two apps compete to make changes to the same target, thus resulting in a corrupt file. Most files don't need to be locked, so you can piratically edit a .txt file both TextEdit and TextMate simultaneously. When Time Machine accesses a backup file (.sparebundle), it places a Hold on the file, so a user ...

I had the same problem on my MacBook Air; I could not mount shares from a mac OS X Server, when other Macs could. I had to apply both the chmod and chgrp commands to fix. I would also recommend restarting into Recovery Mode and running repair disk and repair permissions.

If it really is just that one address and no (or few) others and you really don't know a Davide Farci of Verona (that IP address is part of a small subnet assigned to him, small enough to be a personal network or very small office and we'll get back to that shortly) then you can jump through the hoops of setting up a real firewall (e.g. IPTables), either on ...

The problem has resolved itself with the update to OS X Yosemite. It must have been a Mavericks issue. I have done nothing to the routers settings prior, and have since been able to enable WMM settings.

No solution unfortunately, but I've found out you can at least check the resolver config using 'discoveryutil', like so: mdbraber-mba:~ mdbraber$ sudo discoveryutil configresolver Configuration Resolvers: Resolver domain [default], type Unicast, ifIndex 4, port 0, timeout 30, A yes, AAAA no, serviceID 0, scope None, order 0 server 192.168.143.1 ...

On the AirPort or TimeCapsule that is acting as DHCP and/or NAT, placing a period “.” in the Domain Name field will push a null domain name search to its DHCP clients… It does this by making yer DHCP clients’ treat hostnames as fully qualified… That will not disable domain name searches on the DHCP clients if they are configured to use search domains… ...

I've seen different features when someone is using the airprint driver (which automatically gets assigned to the printer when WiFied) compared to the 'normal' driver via USB. It says if it's airprint or not in system prefs>print&scan "Kind" You can choose what driver you want when you add the printer in the "use:" drop down. Try a couple. If as you ...

Judging from the swapping of the words "Media & Quality" to "Quality & Media" in each screenshot, I'd say that when you use the printer with USB, your computer selects a different "draft-able" driver. When the printer is accessed over Wi-Fi, another driver is used, which prohibits Draft mode printing for some reason.

EasyFind is the answer. Does a search without indexing anything, in real time. Slower than Spotlight, but comforting to us Windows folks, who like to see exactly what the thing's doing. (And in practice it's actually very fast when searching for a filename.)

With my experience, they work. Make sure to keep instructions so you know where to download the drivers. Since your MacBook does not have a DVD drive, you will have to get the drivers for the adaptor from the manufacturer. If you want to avoid this get the Mac thunderbolt adaptor. Hope this is helpful. Also if you have usb3 look for a usb3 adapter.

If the bridged AE's are 2nd generation, they need to be plugged in via the WAN port, not the LAN ports! I know there are much newer versions for AE, but for those of you that have old AE 2nd gen's sitting in a closet, take them out and use them to create a roaming network, but remember to plug them into the WAN port, not the LAN. However, on the newer AE's, ...

Sharing internet connection from one iPhone to another works well if one of the iPhone has a valid Data Simcard with internet and personal hotspot is turn on. Once you have done that turn on the wi-fi on the other iPhone that has no internet and let it search search...once detected connect it, that's it. It works well for me and my friends.
