This is how I got it to work. My example uses three hosts on my network (10.10.0.0/16): 10.10.10.10 = Linux client 10.10.6.237 = Mac "real server" providing a service on port 3000 10.10.1.200 = Mac "server" performing pf redirection, listening on port 2004, interface vlan0 natrdr.pf rdr on vlan0 inet proto tcp from 10.10.0.0/16 to 10.10.1.200 port 2004 -&...

As @andrew-morozko suggested, Raspberry does not not redirect incoming packets to the vpn connection without configuration: sudo iptables -t nat -I POSTROUTING 1 -o tun0 -j MASQUERADE sudo iptables -I FORWARD 1 -i tun0 -o eth0 -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT sudo iptables -I FORWARD 1 -i eth0 -o tun0 -j ACCEPT

In my case this was caused by the Juniper/Pulse Secure VPN client's kernel extension, which was active even when not connected to the VPN. Unloading the kernel extension restored speed without a reboot. Short term fix is to unload the extension, command copied from linked kb article: sudo kextunload /Library/Extensions/PulseSecureFirewall.kext Long term ...

It's not a standard service. I would suggest rebooting the iPhone and checking again. Then you can start one app after another until you get to one that opens that port. Possibly the port number is dynamically allocated, so that you wouldn't fall upon the same port number again.

WiFi devices will reduce speeds if they detect too many errors at the higher rates. For example, in your screenshot, your WiFi radio has negotiated a fairly decent RF speed (MCS 9, 867Mbps) with the router. (It would be interesting to see what the router says, as Tx and Rx can differ.) Over time, radio link quality changes, causing the radios at both ends ...

The solution is in Catalina release note https://developer.apple.com/documentation/macos_release_notes/macos_catalina_10_15_beta_2_release_notes NetBIOS is disabled in macOS 10.15 to speed up mounting, browsing, and connecting to SMB shares.

Is your 'replaced client' the exact same machine name and user as before? if not, you may not have permission to access. The alternative is to take the new client an 'restore from Time Machine' when booted from the recovery partition. This will, of course, wipe the existing data from the hd.

Try it with AFP ON. Although AFP is deprecated, it has been shown to be more reliable with Time Machine over networks than SMB.

Is the new 'replaced' client running on the same level of OS as your other clients? I ran into the same error message when trying to restore a backup, and only got past it when I first upgraded the OS on the new hard drive to the same level as the prior hard drive was running when the most recent back up was made. That is, I skipped restoring files to the ...

I would start with a trial license (free) of VMWare ESXi to enable hardware support for USB-C and Thunderbolt adapters. https://www.virtuallyghetto.com/2017/01/functional-usb-c-thunderbolt-3-ethernet-adapter-for-esxi-5-5-6-0-6-5.html https://www.virtuallyghetto.com/2019/04/new-thunderbolt-3-to-10gbe-options-for-esxi.html There are many home labs where ...

Unfortunately macOS does not provide a way to blacklist a specific access point. On some other operating system you can do this via the BSSID (basic service set identifier) of the access point. You were referring to a MAC, but it is not really a MAC - but rather a BSSID. The BSSID is usually derived from the actual MAC of the access point though, but it is ...

There appear to be four different types of IPv6 addresses: Main address, using your ISP prefix + derivation of your network-interface MAC-address. Temporary addresses, based on your main address but with randomization to prevent tracking. (a new one is generated every so often) Link-local address, identified by starting with fe80:. (not usable globally, ...
