You want a KVM (keyboard, video and mouse) switch. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KVM_switch These are used to quickly switch peripherals between two computers.

This problem may be caused by both local networks using the same network mask. For example, if the office network uses 192.168.178.0/24, and the home network uses the same (or one that overlaps with it), then the VPN client cannot setup a dedicated routing, because the IP addresses are not unique. That's why it works when using the hotspot, because then the ...

This is really quick and dirty, I haven't had the time to test it. Basically, we run a script when something is mounted. It runs anytime, but we use the script to check for the 1 drive we are looking for. You need to run this under a launchd root job to have permissions to shutdown without entering the password. The following is the config file for you to ...

I don't have a categorical plan of action to manage this strategically from soup to nuts, but based on once when I accidentally migrated the same user onto an already fresh install, here are some ideas. First. Ensure you have solid backups of both, in case things get out of hand. Migrating onto an already set-up Mac will generate two separate accounts, even ...

The issues are caused by the KVM switch does not provide full-time EDID emulation/feeding to all connected systems (both your Linux system and MacBook). So, each time you want to make a switch to different connected systems or if the monitor connections are under power saving time-out, you will need to re-boot or replug cables to make re-initial the video ...

My testing cases showed the monitors with a built-in KVM switch function will have many issues with your setup profile for I have 100% same hardware profile as yours (M1 Mac Mini and 2019 MacBook Pro 16 -the intel-based). I recommend using an external KVM switch solution for your setup profile. Pick any DisplayPort monitor without built-in KVM switch ...

Presumably, this is a 2011 Mac Mini? That's the only one that takes that speed of memory. Macs (of that era) make different chimes at startup if there is a problem with the RAM. So, either the RAM is 'bad' in some way or it's not seated correctly. Another possibility is that the RAM is slower than the computer requires. Sometimes, it will still work, but ...

Yes, both the 2020 M1 Mac Mini and the 2019 16" MacBook Pro supports DisplayPort Alternate Mode. All Thunderbolt 3 ports (as those on those Macs) supports USB-C Alternate Mode for DisplayPort. Note that often I see that monitors with built-in KVM have non-obvious drawbacks or "things that might annoy you". You need to think your use case ...

The two most common utilities for this are Bombich Software's Carbon Copy Cloner, and ShirtPocket's SuperDuper. Both will allow you to create a bootable clone of your current OS on an external volume; then at next startup, hold down the Option key and choose the external volume. Note that model Mac mini only supports USB 3.0, so while it'll be faster than ...

What version of ssh are you using on the client and the server? You can find out using ssh -V. Also, for your next step, try ssh -vvv to show all 3 levels of debug mode. It might indicate why it is failing. BTW, the debug1: pledge: filesystem full message actually has to do with the HostKeys in the UserKnownHostsFile. See UpdateHostKeys: https://man7.org/...
