In the Network Preferences panel there should be a listing for thunderbolt bridge. If there is not click on the "+" button at the bottom of the left-hand pane and add it to both Macs. You can leave the setting on DHCP and they should both get an IP address in the range of 169.254.x.x. Make sure each is different. You should now be able to go into terminal ...

Any Mac that supports DP 1.2 technically supports daisy chaining. However, OS X does not yet support it. If you boot Windows on your Mac you will be able to daisy chain.

Yes, that looks correct. If you want some other examples, then take a look at the newegg site.

Well I swapped the USB receiver for the mouse to the other usb port and it seems to be working now but pretty erratically.

A Thunderbolt port can provide up to 10W. That's enough to charge a phone or a tablet but definitely not a notebook. A Macbook (Air/Pro) needs between 45 and 90W.

The MBP is not a thunderbolt device; it is a laptop with its own power source, and a thunderbolt port. If you need to replace the power adapter for your MBP, then take care to obtain the correct wattage.

Thanks for the SMC reset details. This might be helpful for some, I have a MBP 11,3 (2014, 15inch). Last night I ran into a similar problem, my left usb port stopped working. What I did was, a force shutdown and start it. Holding the power button for 10 secs and start with all its ports disconnected. For some reason this worked. USB works. This might work ...

Same problem here. IMHO it's a bug in OSX. Unplugging/plugging kicks something in the OS and then it comes back to live.

The reason why the dual setup isn't working is that you are using MiniDP & HDMI when dual monitors via MiniDP and HDMI are not supported, as noted in the product guide. You will have to use a Thunderbolt-ready monitor with a Thunderbolt cable to allow both monitors to be driven from the dock. The reason for this is that your dock is being driven by one ...

How about this, instead of just waiting, do the following: #!/bin/sh if [[ ! -e /Volumes/<volname ]]; then sleep 60 else exec /Library/PrivilegedHelperTools/com.apple.serverd fi exit 0 This should check if you volume is exists, if no, wait 60 seconds, if yes, start the server app.

Thunderbolt is not backwardly-compatible with any other display technology. It is an active technology, all before it were passive. It is a combination of video & PCIe. You can connect Thunderbolt to DisplayPort, but not the other way round. From how do I connect an Apple Thunderbolt display to a PC? If the Wikipedia article is to be believed (and ...

So oddly enough, 10.10.3 didn't seem to make any difference, but the supplemental update that came up yesterday (14D130a) on Software Update (http://9to5mac.com/2015/04/16/apple-releases-os-x-10-10-3-supplemental-update-to-fix-startup-issue/) fixed it right up. Now when I connect the display via Thunderbolt, it comes up at the native 4K resolution at 60hz ...

From Everymac *This model supports a simultaneous maximum resolution up to 3840x2160 on two external displays via Thunderbolt 2. Alternately, it can support a single display up to 3840x2160 via Thunderbolt 2 and a single 1080p display at up to 60 Hz, 3840x2160 at 30 Hz, or 4096x2160 at 24 Hz via HDMI. afaik, Macs don't do MST

There's a product by 'StarTech.com' that can do this as described, their "Mini DisplayPort 1.2 to Triple Head DisplayPort Multi Monitor MST Hub". You will need 3x miniDP to DP cables for your Dell monitors. You will then need to pick-up a USB 3.0 network adapter which will support Full Duplex 2Gbps to complete your set-up as described. Unfortunately if you ...

Your machine will support up to 2560x1600 on an external monitor. However, using a converter thunderbolt to HDMI will output max of 1920x1080. If the monitor you are planning to connect to your laptop is HD(720p) or Full HD (1080p) then you are good to go and can use a converter thunderbolt to HDMI. If the monitor's resolution is higher than 1080p then you ...

System Prefs > Displays > Arrangement. Drag one monitor over the other to the opposite side, then move the Menu bar to whichever monitor you prefer. The actual screen is given a large red outline as well as the representation in the control panel as you drag, so you're certain which one is which. BTW, that tenacious holding onto which display is which is ...
