You can download “little snitch” an app that records and monitors all of your system, user and network connections. The process responsible will be shown connecting to your local network. You then can use little snitch to prevent that app from using the network.
Without having more information and details it’s hard to provide a quick solution to remove ...
Job #1 - is to determine if the USB device is being recognized in any form, you can do that by looking for the USB VID and PID (described below). When you plug the cable in, you should see the device appear in the list, and go away when you unplug.
The VID number will tell you the ACTUAL chip type, ie: FTDI, SiLAB, Prolific, or Microchip there are many ...
Your assumption that the mac is blocking this could be incorrect. It also could be a VPN software like Cisco AnyConnect which uses OpenDNS servers to ignore the local DNS servers and settings.
By the screen shot, Your mac is trusting the router 192.168.1.1 to filter all your traffic, and that router is the item that’s configured to filter some sites.
DNS stands for Domain Name System. It takes your human-readable URL (e.g. google.com) and converts it to a numerical IP address for your computer to read (e.g. 126.96.36.199).
It looks like the DNS settings on your router are pointing to OpenDNS servers. OpenDNS is a free content-filtering service that prevents access to adult/malicious sites and is not a ...
I don't think wiping and restoring is a good idea for various reasons:
If one of your files in the backup was infected, upon restore, you have the virus/malware again.
The following products have detected malware in the past and I would recommend them:
Clean my Mac -> https://cleanmymac.com
Sophos AV -> https://home.sophos.com/en-us/...
When you have already been infected with the malware, the best solution is to wipe the machine clean, reinstall macOS and restore your own documents and data from backup.
Ensure that you update macOS and your programs to the latest versions immediately after setting up the system to ensure that you do not get malware again.
If you have programs on cloud ...
By following the tutorial, you have created the file /etc/apache2/users/username.conf which contains the following:
Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks
Require host localhost
(note that you've replaced "username" with your actual username)
If you want to allow the public ...
Apple has great triage tools to get you to isolate what is failing:
One valid item is to use tethering and WiFi as listed in HT202663 - that makes sure your Mac is working with other network connections. That will help guide you in ...
Freewheeling off Hans' answer —thanks!— I wanted to streamline the invocation a bit, bypassing Terminal and ending up with the AnyConnect icon in the macOS Status Menu. (I'm on Mojave 10.14.6.)
First, launch Terminal, then change to the AnyConnect application binary's directory:
$ cd "/Applications/Cisco/Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client.app/Contents/...
As @klanomath mentioned in a comment, the output from netstat -vanp tcp contains the process ID of the process that has the port open (it's the next-to-last field), so you can look it up by that:
$ netstat -vanp tcp

No, macOS assigns one route to a network. You’ll need to set up link aggregation which does extremely effective splitting if you can’t have a router that selects egress efficiently and you route all your traffic to that router.
The reason your attempt fails is because the remote host (i.e. the router at mydomain.fqdn.com) doesn't allow you to forward the traffic through the SOCKS proxy. This is the meaning of the "open failed: administratively prohibited" message.
In order to fix this, you'll need to change the SSH configuration on the remote router at mydomain.fqdn.com. In case ...
You could configure dnsmasq to
use your local DNS as an upstream server for the domain in question
use the VPN's DNS as the upstream for all other requests
This can be achieved by configuring a domain dependent upstream server in /etc/dnsmasq.conf, for example:
Then change the VPN configuration to use your ...
I had to create a new profile and disable location services in Security settings to make it work.
It seems this setting in macOs 10.15 greatly effect wifi connection speed, when you download something it likes that you got a speed limitation.
On macOS 10.15 I had to
go to System Preferences-> Network -> Wifi -> Advanced -> Proxies
enable "Auto Proxy Discovery"
restart my Mac
Other things I tried prior that did not solve the problem:
navigating to a non-https site (http://neverssl.com is my goto)
navigating to a well-known (even though https) site: google.com
navigating to the router's IP ...
