OS X includes a command line tool called split. See man split for all the details. You can call split using the Terminal.app and the command: split -b 5000m MYBIGFILE To combine it again, have the receiver store all parts in a dedicated folder, open Terminal there and run cat x?? > MYBIGFILE (This assumes that you used the default output names when ...

On OSX you should run the mounting command as your own regular user, not root. sshfs user@host:/ ~/sshfs -oauto_cache,reconnect,defer_permissions,noappledouble,negative_vncache,volname=MySSHFSMount

A couple of things you need to be aware of. First - the AFP URL needs to contain the name of the share - not it's location on the server. Second, the mount point must be an empty directory that you have write permission to. So your commands might be :- sudo mkdir /Volumes/mount sudo mount -t afp afp://user:pass@ipaddress/SharedDrive /Volumes/mount

Apple has already issued a quick fix to this. Follow these steps: Launch the Terminal app (usually found in the Utilities folder within your Applications folder) Copy the following command and paste it into Terminal: sudo /usr/libexec/configureLocalKDC Press enter Enter your Admin password (Note: You won’t actually see the cursor move as you enter your ...

What was required was the following line in /etc/exports: /path/to/shared/dir -mapall=<uid of local user on host machine with correct perms> -network 192.168.56.0 -mask 255.255.255.0 exports(5) is the FreeBSD version, obviously. Once I did some googling for the solution with respect to "FreeBSD" instead of "Mac", the necessary information presented ...

The smbutil command can dump the attributes for all shares or you can target one particular share and parse out the version string: smbutil statshares -a In the case of the listing below: site-test-mbp01:~ me$ df Filesystem 512-blocks Used Available Capacity iused ifree %iused Mounted on /...

The only feature that needs to be enabled on the Time Capsule is the file sharing feature. This will activate AFP and SMB Filesharing which allows your Mac, PC and Android Device to access the Time Capsule and use it as a NAS (basically the Time Capsule is a glorified NAS). To access your file on the Time Capsule you need a SMB client for Android such as ...

The option has been removed from the GUI in OS X 10.7 however you can enable it with a few commands. Here is a good write up on how to do it. http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_7-20088844-263/managing-ftp-services-in-os-x-lion/ Summary of the link above: To Load: sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist Then to start and stop ...

If I am not mistaken FTP is not supported anymore, too insecure, eg sends your password in the clear over the network etc. However, if you enable "Remote Login" in sharing, you can use SFTP which works just as well as FTP. SFTP stands for secure FTP and therefore all the information you transfer between computers is encrypted while in transit over the ...

This is a bug in Mountain Lion for which there seems to be no fix as yet. If you eject the network folder then re-connect it will appear in the sidebar but next time you login it will be gone.

Before Mac OS X, the Mac OS used ‘forked’ files, which have two components: a data fork and a resource fork. The Mac OS Standard (HFS) and Mac OS Extended (HFS Plus) disk formats support forked files. When you move these types of files to other disk formats, the resource fork can be lost. With Mac OS X, there is a mechanism called “AppleDouble” that allows ...

After enabling File Sharing on one machine, it will give you the name of the machine as used to connect to it. Next, go to the other computer, and open Finder. You should see the name of the other computer in the sidebar. If you don't, then press Go -> Connect to Server, and connect to the other machine by the name that was given in the Sharing window. ...

There are known issues (Apple-created bugs) with several revisions of OS X 10.5 Leopard Client and AFP file access, including permission problems and in certain cases even the potential to lose or overwrite files completely. There is no work-around for these bugs, they are in the operating system itself and can be reproduced on 2 freshly-formatted & ...

Thought I threw my two cents in. Being both a Mac and Linux user - I find that once a SAMBA share is created on a Linux machine (browseable option on Linux samba turned on with or without a login - you can "connect as" from the Mac to the Linux machine), my Mac would pick it up and list in on Finder's left pane. Here's a quick SAMBA setup for the Linux ...

Prior to Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Client came with SAMBA Server and Client and what you defined to share was all that was shared. Since Mac OS X Lion, and continuing with OS X Mountain Lion and other releases of OS X, SAMBA has been replaced with SAMBX due to SAMBA moving to GPLv3. As a result SAMBA is basically broken in the OS since 10.7. The Mac OS X 10.7 ...

Gordan's got the issue: To connect to an APFS formatted volume you need to turn OFF sharing via AFP (forcing SMB connection) on the macOS devices you are trying to share. Open System Preferences (Screen Menu > Apple icon > System Preferences Select Sharing icon (3rd row, Folder w/ caution sign) Select File Sharing in Right hand list (check to turn on if ...

AFP works over the internet assuming that port 548 is not blocked by your ISP. If you are using a private IP behind a NAT you'll need to forward port 548 to the computer that you want to connect to on the router. Using DHCP makes this much more difficult. If the DHCP requirement is so that your computer can join other networks easily, you might want to ...

There are tools like Marco Polo that can change such settings based on location, but you will need to actually change your location, or have some other automated way to trigger this change. While there are some sophisticated servers and network hardware that can access multiple TCP/IP connections, and route different classes of network traffic to different ...

In general, iCloud is not a person-to-person sharing platform. It is mostly restricted to sharing with your devices, so there is almost no capability to share with others. It does have the ability to share Photos and videos in a limited fashion, called 'Family Sharing". In El Capitan, Apple introduced a feature called Mail Drop. This feature duplicates ...

In my experience there is no quickfix way to get windows and mac machines to always be visible in the others networks list. The best thing you can do is enable Samba filesharing on your mac, then when you want to connect you just type smb:\\Jonathan's MacBook Pro (minus the quotes) into the address bar in Explorer (or into the run dialogue). To Enable SMB ...

The simple act of clicking the "File Sharing" check box will allow the following things to happen. Any user account can connect to the machine and access their own home folder, as well as the public folders on any other user account. Any administrator users can access the boot disk. The list of shared folders in the preference pane is for fine-tuning ...

Thanks for the answers. This is definitely a bug that hopefully Apple will fix!! The solution that works for me (more of a workaround) is that you need to have a finder window opened before you mount any network shares. Drag your network shares to the 'Devices' section in the sidebar (they wont stick this is ok for now) Close all programs and ...

… can I tell it not to create these files? The proposed cron job As your file server serves multiple users, the short answer is: you should allow and not schedule removal of ._ files. For a file service that is without support for things such as extended attributes: File service If you configure the server to prevent creation of ._ files: the ...

The syntax will vary upon the filesystem use, but if it's SMBFS or CIFS based, you will need to specify the mode of the mount point, e.g. -d=777. For example: mount -o nosuid,-d=777 -t smbfs //domain;uid:passwd@server/share /Volumes/<mount point> where: domain = Domain or Workgroup uid = Username passwd = Password server = Name or IP address of the ...

I recommend FileExplorer Free. I just installed it to access files that I wrote on a SD card in my WiFi router. I have an iPhone and iPad. FileExplorer can use CIFS, SMB, FTP and others. It can read many formats such as PDF, video, photos, music and Microsoft Office. There is priced version for five dollars.

With the Mac hosting the share point, here's what you need to do. I can provide basic instruction to connect from your Linux box to the Mac, but you'll have to research your particular distro if you run into any issues: Like YoshiBotX said, turn on "File Sharing" in System Preferences > Sharing. By default, you should see your own Public folder already ...

Right-click the file or folder in Finder > Services > Copy full path Paste the path into the email (I used Apple Mail) The recipient just has to choose the whole path in the email and right-click it > Reveal in Finder You don't have to escape spaces in the path with backslashes! The share has to be mounted already. If you don't find a service like "Copy ...

macOS Server is not required at all to share directories over NFS. The macOS client provides all necessary tools. Testing various exports with bogus paths, I'd assume your path simply doesn't exist. The most convenient GUI-tool for NFS is NFS Manager. You will be presented with a nag-screen launching it or changing configurations, but it works without ...

It turned out that the issue was indeed different UIDs though the usernames were the same. From the Apple Support Communities link: borbye: The first user that is established on an OSX disc is given UID number 501. Normally next user is given UID 502. In my case I could not import my existing user during first run with my new MB Air. Had to ...

The Synology NAS supports a Network Recycle bin, but only for SMB volumes. Therefore if you want to make use of it from your Mac, you need to access the share via SMB and not AFP. This can be enabled from the Control Panel under Win/Mac/NFS. The Synology by itself fully supports Time Machine, and can act as a Time Capsule. Most of the documentation on the ...
