There's a couple of problems here... how can I trace icmp_seq=5284 That's not how it works. That seq or sequence number is just a two byte field (16 bits) that's used the match the packet that you sent out with the reply. Your request doesn't create a spike. However, technically, it's already been traced - that packet went out, was replied to and the ...

Just manually configure your IP address settings and remove the default gateway. When OpenVPN is up, you’ll be assigned that tunnel as the default gateway and when it’s down, it will fall back to the original settings where there isn’t one.

If you wanted to capture the exact packet trace - here is how Apple recommends it. https://developer.apple.com/documentation/network/recording_a_packet_trace The steps vary based on OS and if you are on Wireless or Ethernet. All this will show is more detail on what ping reported, but you’ll have actual traffic to then hand to your router manufacturer / ...

Switch to another local domain, such as .lan, instead of the reserved .local. Bonjour/ZeroConf reserves the use of .local. If you are using DHCP, your server can handle this configuration. Alternatively, hardcode the server's IP address in /etc/hosts with the line: a.x.y.z <servername>

Since iOS 8, Apple has implemented MAC address randomization as a security measure against tracking. It will will generate a random MAC address when responding to a probe request (another node is scanning) sending a probe request (the iDevice is scanning) However, when joined, it will use it’s own real MAC address. Basically, users can be tracked when ...

Use scutil to set all three of the names that can exist for a macOS system. Setting hostname via scutil you can experiment with using a different name for each and figure which bonjour uses, which is the formal name and which maps to hostname if the manual page isn’t clear.


2

The man page for hostname says: To keep the hostname between reboots, run `scutil --set HostName name-of-host'. Also, the name in the Sharing prefs pane you mentioned, is that the name that isvisible right there when you open the pane, or the one you can edit when you click the "Edit..." (or similar - in German it's "Bearbeiten...") button?

Need more details to really say anything conclusively. When the data transfer is happening, you should run sudo nettop and look at the local addresses the AssetCache service is connecting to. This will reveal what device on the local network it's serving, or the lack thereof. Some other quick thoughts: I'm fairly sure content caching DOES apply to the ...

Wow, it looks like I have found a workable solution to this. Still a few strange bits which you can see in the new video I created, but the end result basically works. Steps: With the remote volume not mounted, open the Connect to Server dialog (Command-K in Finder) Enter the network address of your remote volume. If you have previously connected to it, ...

I am suddenly getting this problem with hardware that has been fine for a couple of years. It was fine after the recent software update, so I’m concluding this is a hardware issue.

They mention it, but they do not provide details: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201999 About macOS, iOS, and iTunes server host connections and iTunes background processes Some Apple software, including macOS, iOS, and iTunes, uses different ports and servers to connect to various services. iTunes for Windows also installs some processes that ...

Final solved the issue after tweaking every possible setup in my Mac. Somehow the proxy SOCKS was enabled and by default denying all SSL certifications. Still don’t know how it was enabled and maybe the malware that I had activated it like another user commented before. Thanks all by the way for your comments

I think I final figured it out. Never trust a AV. If you set it to off, it doesn't mean its really disabled... I uninstalled it and suddenly the issue disappeared. Which makes kinda sense, because Sophos is checking the traffic to scan for malware/virus thats why its proxies the traffic over. Why its still doing this when its disabled is another question. ...

I recommend Wireshark, if you want detailed information about your network traffic. It works on Windows and MacOS and is even more detailed than Windows Resource Monitor. If you just want to temporarily monitor the amount of network traffic for a process, the build in MacOS Activity Monitor is sufficient. Though, Activity Monitor does not show which IP each ...

Sorry all, the problem is caused by VPN application, after I turn off that I can access all port again. I didnt know if that running because that app not in the dock list, only in menu bar. Thank @jaume for giving me the clue about that app.

Thats not the way it works. Your Mac is a client on the network(s) you attatch to and it gets its settings from from the DHCP server. In that DHCP response, theres a number of things including a DNS server assignment(s) which is where all the names on the network come from. Those name to address relationships are ultimately managed by the network admin. ...
