If your AirPort doesn't go to another router, but goes straight to the modem or whatever you have for internet access, check your public IP online and your WAN IP in AirPort Utility. Then, if they match, make sure to forward port 80 (unless you prefer to specify a port every time you go to your site) and test if that wasn't already the case. If the IP's ...

The 6.1 update added airplay discoverability via bluetooth to the Apple TV, and it sounds as though this is what you are seeing, especially since the distances you mention are not dissimilar to bluetooth ranges. From Macrumors: This change allows Apple TV to search for connectable devices over Bluetooth, bypassing Bonjour and making it easier for ...

You cannot set a proxy "just for Skype". The Skype developers have not programmed that option and therefore it does not exist. Mac OS X and for example Windows only allow you to set a system-wide proxy. Unless the developer of an application allows you to set an application-specific proxy, you cannot set a proxy without a third party application.

Looks like the computer is set to prefer or prioritise the xfiniti Wifi hotspot over you home wifi, you can set your home Wifi to be of priority to any other Wifi connection and this is how to do that, System Preferences/Network/ then select Wifi and click on Advanced, you'll see all preferred networks there. Click and drag your home Wifi to the top.

You can change the order of connection to your preferred networks. System Preferences -> Network -> WiFi Then drag the Cisco Linksys E900 to the top of that list (making sure xfiniti is below it -- or remove it entirely).

Just span and capture with tcpdump and then analyze the traffic with Wireshark (tshark) for top talkers, one or two hosts will jump out immediately... If you sniff the packets realtime you can almost always tell the top talkers they're the packets you see most often, usually it take me about 1min. to find the culprit.

You can set up a Proxy in OS X of your choosing and let Skype use it. Skype works with HTTPS and SOCKS types of Proxy. Alternatively without setting up a Proxy and in order to protect your privacy in Skype you can simply use the Skype feature to Hide your IP. Open Skype- Preferences - Advanced.

Best way to hook up a network drive is to add a network drive that get's its own IP address. Adding a USB drive to an airport extreme is not good because it's not reliable. Tends to disconnect, and then to reconnect you have to reboot the airport and the usb disc. Not worth it.

AFAIK, you can't get the ownership properties of files on SMB/Samba shares on anything other than Windows. Mac OS / Linux implementations of Samba don't parse that info when reading the share, most probably because of the differences in how the extended attributes are stored between the OS's, and that the Share properties are determined by the hosting system ...

Well I found the problem - your iPad saves every program in the background even after you have turned off and started the ipad again. So things like games that are connecting to facebook, youtube, your mail etc etc it all adds up. first time I checked I had about 40 programs running in the background - shut them all down and problem solved! double click ...

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 ...

I discovered that bouncing airport (Disable/Enable on Air Port Icon in the top right) resolved the issue temporarily. Eventually I tried a PRAM reset and that seems to have fixed the problem for good. Would have loved to understand the root cause though ...

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.

I saw that you already found a way but I wanted to teach you an easier way. System Preferences > Network > Wi-Fi > Advanced > Wi-Fi Use the Plus and Minus button to add/remove networks.

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?

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 ...

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.

After several trials, I "somehow" managed to fix the problem. The important thing, I guess, is that you need to reboot the iMac. What I know for sure that I have changed is: Add a new position; Link a new connection to the new position; Add an additional DNS address to the list: 8.8.8.8 The source I was following is this website with troubleshooting ...

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 ...

The Bubba B3 only supports 802.11 b/g/n networks by design. That is why you do not see it on the 802.11ac network.

I would suggest simply saving aliases of each mounted network share. Assuming that you have allowed Keychain to store your credentials for these shares, they will mount automatically when you open the alias in the future. I personally use the following strategy. I add my ~/Library/Favorites folder to my Finder sidebar and my Dock. Then, I place aliases ...

A few years ago I have used this software, but now I no longer use it. You need to test yourself whether it supports the latest OS X.

Normally you can setup header and footer in the page setup or print setup (depend on which program you print from), so that the file name isn't shown. If your network printer support "secure print" then use this feature, because then it will only be you that'll see the printed.

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.

Good question. Admins used to be able to block mac addresses at the router, but now pervasive tools for mac address spoofing allow users to easily overcome blacklists or mimic trusted computers. If it is your own network and you do not recognize a computer attached to it, and you want them to go away, and have no way of contacting them, you can use the ...

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: ...

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.

I'm not sure of any Mac programs, but try calling up your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and they might be able to block those devices. It's worth a shot.

On your airport extreme you can block certain mac address for good with "No Access".

I had a similar issue as well on Mavericks. It is very very strange that it is so hard to make an app exception. On Mavericks you have two firewalls on the system. We used a 3rd party tool called icefloor to configure the pf firewall and avoid the application based firewall. Be sure to check icefloor's compatibility with Yosemite. ...

Bonjour Sleep Proxy on Yoshitonme is broken. When your Mac Mini goes to sleep it goes off the grid and Bonjour no longer can wakes it up via ethernet. No fix for it and none expected. Work around is go to System Preferences > Energy Saver > Slide "Computer Sleep" to "Never" and reboot Mac Mini.

I found the answer. Something in the side bar preferences was messing with the system.

Then everything came back online and started working.

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 ...

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.
