OS X :: Can ACLs On A Directory Prevent Guest Account From Access Via A File Share

Jan 27, 2010

I have given up on getting home sharing to work properly amongst all my various computers at home on 10.5 and thought I would use an old style brute force method of simply setting up a file share to share my iTunes library. I set up file sharing to use the Guest account and it works fine for all of my other content. I have tried to create shares of the following directories and can only connect as a registered user (Guest user cannot even see these shares):

/Users/<name>/Music

/Users/<name>/Music/iTunes

I have gone into the terminal and looked at the ACLs on the Music directory (e.g ls -alte) and I can't see anything that would block access, but I am not an expert with this type of ACL. The ACL on the Music directory is this:

0: group:com.apple.sharepoint.group.2 allow search

1: group:everyone deny delete

I have an ACL called 0: group:everyone deny delete on one of my other shares that works fine so this can't be the culprit (more importantly the ACL looks like it is just preventing users from deleting anything).

MacBook Pro :: OS Lion Couldn't Access Guest Account And New User Account

May 24, 2012

I bought this new MacBook Pro a month ago.  When I try logging into my guest account, it froze.  I had no other alternative but to get out of it by pressing the power button.  Then I tried open a new user account to see if it also has the same problem.  Unfortunately it did have the same problem - froze after I logged in.  I had done a harddisk check, there seemed to be no problem.

MacBook Pro (15-inch Late 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.2)

Apr 30, 2010

I want to setup a public share to my public folder to window's xp users. When I do this, it seems to share the public folder AND the entire home directory for read/write. It doesn't seem to matter that I haven't shared that folder. This seems like a HUGE security hole to me. What am I doing wrong?

OS X :: No Access For Network Connection For Guest Account

Mar 1, 2010

After creating a guest account I noticed that anyone uses that account can use my (remembered) secured network connection. Normally, in my network settings, remembering used networks option is checked. When I look into the keychain, I see two entries for my network name. One is in my logins section and the other is in the system section. I suppose, the guest uses the entry which is in the system section. If I delete the entry which is in system section, it is been created again on next connection.

If I do not want any guest to use my network connection, I am having to cancel the remembering used network option and select disconnect on logging out option in airport advanced settings. But; if do this, I am having to select my network and type its password every time I login. I simply want if a guest uses the Guest Account, he wouldn't able to use my network connection without entering the correct password. Is it possible?

OS X :: Cannot Access Guest Account - No Privilege For Admin

Feb 7, 2010

So I am the admin on my computer and for some reason I cannot access ANY other account on my computer, I can't even get into the guest account that isn't even password protected. When I try to open a folder it says I don't have privileges to do so. Also when I go to the users folder the other users don't show up. What can I do so that I can have access to these accounts? Please help this is so frustrating that I can't control MY computer.

OS X :: Guest Account On Leopard / Unable To Access HTTPS Websites

Jul 21, 2010

I really like the guest account feature that Leopard (and I'm assuming Snow Leopard) provides.I just got my first Macbook Pro... about a year old running Leopard... part of a client deal (you Mac people just got another application developer interested ).

Anyway.. I'm wondering... I"m getting rid of a few of my other computers on craigslist in the coming weeks and my girlfriend always wants to check her facebook. I'd prefer not to have her accidentally close something important so I setup & configured the guest account. I installed the server admin tools to fully customize the dock/etc.

Two questions however:

1: Thus far the guest account cannot access HTTPS (secure sites) websites. Not in Safari or Google Chrome. Is this an option somewhere? Something I'm missing? I've tried googling for about 30 minutes and have come up blank.

2: Without overwriting the default profile setup (incase I ever want to create new profiles)... is there a way to set a few default things for the Guest user? FOr instance... I know it wipes everything on close... I want it to remember that Google Chrome & Safari have run before (annoying that it asks "do you want this to be the default browser?.. or running the initial safari video).

Feel free to get as technical as you want... as I said I'm a seasoned linux & windows developer getting into the Mac world .

Hardware :: New Time Capsule - Dual Network - ONLINE FILE SHARE And Guest Networking

Mar 3, 2009

1. Dual networking. You can run N on 5.0 ghz and at the same time run A/B/G whatever on 2.4 ghz for legacy devices such as the iPhone. No speed hit.

2. Easy to use guest mode which will open up one of the frequencies for use as a password less (optionally you can add a password) access to the net but locking off your computers, printer etc. on the other encrypted frequency. Great for having friends over and getting them on your network without having to open it up to attack or having to give out huge passwords for them to enter.

3. If you have MobileMe then the new Time Capsule FILE SHARES EVERYTHING OFF THE ENTIRE DRIVE TO THE NET!

OS X :: Finder Always Connects To Windows Share As Guest

Apr 3, 2009

I've just received my new Nehalen MacPro. Everything went fine except one thing that its making me crazy. I have a windows share on my office network, to which I can connect just fine with my Macbook. On the MacPro I can connect to a WindowsVista machine (same/user and pass than the MacPro) but cannot connect to fileserver.

Whatever I try, the finder always connects as guest, even after I chose "connect as" as fill with the right username/password. Finder says its connecting and the connects, but as guest and not as my user. Because the guest has no permissions on this share, I see the folders but no files.

OS X Technologies :: Possible To Prevent OS From Dropping And Deleting A Network Share Shortcut

Feb 17, 2012

One thing that has always bugged me about Mac OS is that when a network share becomes unresponsive or unavailable the shortcut on the desktop disappears and you get a glaring messaging that the share has been disconnected.Is there any way to prevent a network share from being removed just because it becomes momentarily unavailable?As an example, on a Windows machine the network share shortcut remains, you simply cannot use it but it is there and ready to go the moment the share comes back online. Is there some way to make OS X behave in this manner? Or is there a way to extend the time out interval for a network share?

OS X :: How To Prevent External HD Constant Access

May 2, 2009

OSX has a rather annoying feature, on many commands it will spin up my external harddrive out of its sleep mode. I have to wait for the harddrive to get up to speed and during that wait i get the spinning beach ball. Its really annoying because it will do that on things totally unrelated to the external like bookmarking a webpage, going into a new tab in safari, switching between programs.

What i would like to to make it so that the external harddrive is only spun up when its actually being used! I dont want to have it going all the time because i value the quietness of my mac, at the moment its pretty much silent apart from when the external harddrive is going or the fans are going flatout. OSX 10.5.6, late 2008 macbook 2.0ghz. Western digital 1TB external hard drive on USB

OS X :: Any Way To Allow Temporary WiFi Access (Guest Network)

Sep 6, 2010

I have an Airport Extreme base station and am curious if there is anyway to allow temporary access to my wifi signal its configured with a WPA passcode. I have neighbors that come over and use my wifi but then continue to use it when they return to their homes, is there anyway for me to allow them temporary access or create some kind of guest network that I could turn off when they leave? I HATE having to change the administrative password when they leave because I have to re-enter it on all of my devices.
