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 ...

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 /...

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

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

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Yes, you can use an ethernet cable to quickly transfer files from one computer to the other. It's really quite simple. Plug in the cable Go to System Preferences, and make sure that Ethernet is enabled. (it should be in the "Network" list.) Unlock the "Network" preference pane, and click on "Ethernet" Click on Advanced, and select "Manually" from the "...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

If the file in question is a large video or image file visible in the Photos app on your iOS/iPadOS device, you can connect the device directly to your Mac via a cable (Lightning and/or USB-C on iOS/iPadOS device, USB-A or USB-C on Mac) and use the Image Capture.app on your Mac to directly transfer it. If it's a file stored in one of the apps installed on ...

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 ...

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 ...

User access to sharepoints will depend on permissions that are set on that sharepoint. You can use the 'ls' command to get that information using Terminal...Newer Mac products (10.4+) will use ACLs to control access to those folders. You can obtain infomation on both the POSIX as well as ACLs applied to folders by using this command: ls -ale /Path/To/Folder ...

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.

Use Directory Utility. Open /System/Library/CoreServices/Applications/Directory Utility Select the Directory Editor tab In the "Viewing" bar, select SharePoints in node /Local/Default Authenticate by clicking the little lock button Shares are listed in the left-hand column. Select one and update the following as needed: RecordName (the name of the ...

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 ...

Split the traffic with different subnets on your router. If your lan is giving addressing in the 10.10.10.0/24 range and your wifi is giving them in the 192.168.0.0/24 range everything you connect to on the 10.10.10.0/24 network with only use ethernet.

This is probably related to the "safe save" feature of SMB shares in OS X. To allow group access enter in Terminal: sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.smb.server AclsEnabled -bool YES Source: OS X Server: When saving files on SMB shares, the permissions might be changed so that only the owner can read or write Then ...

.app files are really just folders, but applications (like finder) see them differently and calculate the size of the contents of the folder. Empty folders have the size of 68 bytes, non-empty folders are 102 bytes or bigger. All my folders and .apps are 102 bytes since they contain only 1 sub-folder.

We have had a very similar (if not the same) problem ever since we upgraded our server to Windows 2008 R2. (WinServer 2003 was fine.) However, the main symptom we encountered, is somewhat different: We work in a mixed Mac / PC environment. Desktop operators work on Mac only, whereas our backend services are Windows based. Also some manual operations are ...

Yes - by default, file deletions are logged along with many other important file sharing events. Install the Server app on any Mac (or log into the server to run the app there or inspect the log file locally). Select logs on the left, select AFP Access Log on the bottom and search for the word Delete. Once you've found the file deletion you care about, ...

In 2018 this is now something you can share out. See Can I share iCloud Drive folder with other iCloud user? The "no you can't share a folder" won't prelude you from sharing out files. On Mac - right click the file in question, then share, then Add People and add the email / cellular number / iMessage of the intended recipient.

You cannot mount a remote "drive" to OneDrive as the synchronization/authentication protocol is not implemented within the OS X file system. (It is in Windows, which is why can you do it). However, I have a client who accomplished this with an App: CloudMounter. It worked really well and was priced pretty fairly ($30). I personally don't have a need ...

To mount a share in Terminal use the following commands: mkdir /Volumes/mount mount -t afp afp://user:pass@ipaddress/Desktop /Volumes/mount This works because the folder /Volumes is world read & writable. If you use sudo mkdir /Volumes/mount mount has the following permissions: drwxr-xr-x+ 2 root admin - 68 8 Mär 02:40 . <- mount ...
