OS X Tiger :: Unable To Access Any Of The Shared Macs And Servers On Network
Since yesterday, I'm unable to access any of the shared Macs and Servers on our network. I wasn't aware of making any changes that might have triggered this, like doing a software update.

Server V10.5 Leopard :: IChat Federation / Unable To Access Bunch Of Servers
My question is highly related to this — url

I have the same exact issue on my server (Xserve G5, running 10.5.8 Server). And it's an old issue, too.
Federation works for servers who are hosted on the same domain they're serving, so they can be resolved trough an A record, but does not work with, — anything that makes use of _xmpp-server._tcp SRV record.

So, instead of jabberd/resolver ( resolved to (1800 seconds to live)

...I see jabberd/resolver ( resolved to (60 seconds to live)+ in my server's log.

Luckily, I have access to a bunch of servers, some of them G5's, some of them — Intels. I've checked it literally tens of times — if it's PowerPC it fails and if it's Intel it resolves perfectly.

So, did anybody manage to set up federation with and such on Mac OS X 10.5 Server running on PowerPC server, or is an upgrade the easiest workaround?

OS X :: Unable To Access Google And Some Other Websites

Mac Safari :: Cannot Go To Any Google Servers Since Update
I am running leopard on Mac Mini as a media center. I just ran the most recent software update last week sometime and I just noticed an issue. Not sure if it is a safari or leopard issue. Since the update I cannot go to any google servers. It seems like the whole domain is blocked. I am running Safari 5.0 and can reach google on my laptop off of the same wireless connection.

Snow Leopard :: Slow Connection To Google Servers
Let me preface this by saying I'm not sure that this is a Snow Leopard issue. But my observations have led me to the conclusion that it might be.

About a week ago all of my connections to any google service (, gmail, and youtube) started to take about 30 seconds to connect. Every website that didn't reference google's servers worked fine. And the odd part is, when I first boot, I can connect instantly. But after a few minutes, the long connection begins. In Firefox, it pauses at the "Connecting to" in the status bar.

At first I thought this was a Google problem, I heard about some Chinese hackers or something, and thought maybe they're just screening all their connections. But after a week, and seeing that no one else has the problem, I began to think that it might be me. So I tested google in Windows 7 boot camp (same computer) and it worked fine.

To summarize,
All google connections in Snow Leopard take about 30 seconds to connect
Happens on all networks, not just my home network
Works on the Windows side
Works after startup, begins to appear after a few minutes of uptime

Has anyone had this problem before? I'm hoping the solution is as easy as cleaning a cache somewhere, but it seems as though there might be a restore in my future.

Software :: Unable To Access System Preferences / Computer Freezes Up
The computer is a dual G4 1Ghz with 2Gb of Ram and two hard drives. Used to run a custom built microscope in a scientific lab. Resurrecting it is imperative, as the cards and other equipment are now out of date and replacing the computer and cards would be enormously expensive (and worse, would mean switching to PC).

There are several issues:
-No response to selecting "About this mac" from the apple logo in the upper left.
-No response to selecting restart or shutdown
-The computer freezes up (pinwheel) whenever I attempt to access System Preferences (window will appear however once mouse is over it, pinwheel appears).
-does not recognize the USB key needed to run a piece of software.

-together these issues prevent us from installing the software needed to control the scope.

I've tried reinstalling (clean not archive) the OS on the original HD and a new HD. The problem doesn't go away.Have also cleared out the systempreferences.plist and the cache for both safari and preference panes.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Rackspace Cloud Servers To Include Mac OS X Servers?
Rackspace Cloud Servers is a very good choice for unmanaged hosting and one thing that captured my mind was it only supported Windows Servers 2003 & 2008. I don't like paying for Server Security which in fact Macs don't require you to pay for annual subscriptions like Anti-viruses and Firewall Support. Does anyone want to chip in and contact Rackspace Cloud Sales? I would be glad to if I could use Mac OS X Server in Rackspace Cloud.

MacBook :: Unable To Contact Mac Mail Servers
About 4 days ago, MS Entourage stopped receiving email and sending emails. In fact I can't even delete old email because I keep getting a message that Entourage can't contact the Mac mail servers. I have not changed any mail settings or my password. I swithed over to Mac Mail and was able to received and send messages for about a day and now this program just freezes up when I attempt to use it.  Since this problem cropped up I have been able to go to icloud to retrieve and send email. I would like to use the email programs on my MacBook. Is Apple having a problem with their mail servers or this an icloud sync problem with my desktop email programs?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Unable To Search Mounted FTP Servers Using Finder
I just installed Lion on a machine that I use daily. One of the routine things I do is connect to FTP servers and search their contents to then collect files and process them. I was unpleasantly surprised when I found that I was simply unable to search the FTP server, it simply doesn't bring back any results. 

I tried on 2 other Lion Macs and both have the same symtoms, one of the other 2 macs is brand new out of the box (3 days old) I had to downgrade to Snow Leopard to return the machine to a useable state. 

Is Apple aware of this issue, is there a workaround? I prefer to not install 3rd party FTP apps. In fact, I tried Transmit and it too would not search but I assure you that the host of FTP servers I login in to are just fine as any other PC or Mac (10.6 or inferior) work without any problem. 

Has Apple changed something? PS the mac I tried it on was even cleanly installed, nothing but Apple SW and fully up-to-date.

OS X :: Mail Unable To Connect To Gmail Servers - Refused To Allow A Connection On Port 993
I have my Gmail account set up for IMAP, and use it in Mail. However, as of this morning, Mail can't connect to either the IMAP server or the SMTP server. Whenever I try to connect to the IMAP server, it gives me the following error:

"The server '[URL]' refused to allow a connection on port 993."

I've checked repeatedly and all of my settings are as the Gmail website says they should be. Does anybody have any idea how to fix this?

Snow Leopard :: Can't Access Google / What To Do?
Yeah I know there are a bunch of these through out the interwebs but nothing seems to solve my problem. Here is my story.

I was running 10.5 on my mac pro. maybe about 4-5 months ago. one day I was unable to connect to google and any google site - youtube, blogger, gmail, even yahoo etc... I searched around and tried a bunch of things I found on forums, nothing seemed to work. So my solution was to just upgrade to 10.6 which I had been meaning to do anyway. problem solved.

I ran 10.6 for about 3 months till it happened again. so again I searched around and this time changing my DNS from my ISP's server (Comcast) to openDNS seemed to work. Everything was fine using the openDNS servers till about 2 weeks ago when it happened again. this time I can connect to, just not youtube, gmail, googlemaps etc... I tried changing the DNS back to the ISP's then back to openDNS, nothing. I bought a brand new router (Airport extreme) Nothing. the weird thing if I go to one of those free proxy sites and type in an address that I can't access - it loads without issue. So I'm wondering if for some reason my IP is being blocked, is there anyway to find that out?

Mac Safari :: Can't Access Any Google Related Website
Yesterday sometime, I realized my iGoogle Home page wasn't loading. Then I found I couldn't retrieve my gmail from Mail or [URL]. I also can't access yahoo or youtube. I tried getting rid of openDNS to leave my ISP DNS but it didn't work. I went back to openDNS with settings changed and nothing has worked thus far. I have also reset my home network.

The weird thing is that I can get on google from any other computer in my home including my iPhone and Wii. I can also get to google from windows machines on my home network too. I tried going to differnet google's such as .ca and .cl to no avail.

Snow Leopard :: Can't Access Google Australia / Make It Possible?
I am unable to access with safari, firefox, or chrome. The Safari statusbar message says "Contacting", the activity window says " ..... 0 bytes of ?", and it doesn't progress beyond that.

I have no problems with other sites, and my two other macs (macbook pro and a mac mini) on the network can get to Google Australia fine. Everything is working as it should except for this one, rather useful website. Could Google Australia be blocking me for some reason, or is it more likely to be a problem on my mac pro?

OS X Leopard :: Unable To Access Drive - Insufficient Access Privileges

OS X now working fine again but it seems my Media drive has an issue wherby I get the error message 'The folder could not be opened because you have insufficient access privileges'. It appears in Finder with a padlock and I can't view any contents. In the info all the Permissions are all listed as Custom. I have tried changing them but nothing happens. I tried logging in as a root user to see if it would be possible to change the permissions but again am unable to. Although when logged in as root user, I can at least view all of the contents.

MacBook Pro :: Can't Access To Youtube And Google Maps With Safari
I've a MacBook Pro and I can't go to Youtube and Google Maps with Safari. I've also tried with Firefox but the problem is still not solved.Actually, Safari (or Firefox) keeps charging the page but is unable to get it. I always see a blank page. It only happens with these two websites. Other sites are working perfectly.I've tried so many things like installing the flash, erasing cookies or cache, installing updates but nothing helped. This is really annoying. Just to give you an example, if I try to localize my MacBook I just can't see where it is as the map is not appearing.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Access To Google Calendar Hosted ICal
I'd like to give someone access to my calendar hosted on our company's Snow Leopard iCal Server. They are a Google Calendar user. Both are CalDav systems, so this should be possible I would think. Has anybody had success with this? Within Google Calendar there is an option to add a calendar by selecting "Add by URL", similar to subscribing to a calendar with iCal. I realize that is a read-only view of an ICS feed, but that would be just fine. However, after hours of researching and trying numerous iterations of URL's for my calendar on our iCal Server, no luck.

OS X Tiger :: Unable To Connect To Computer To Computer (ad Hoc) Network
I've set up an ad hoc network on my G4 in order to connect to a Cube (30 ft away) that is also running 10.4.11. Both are equipped with AirPort cards. I've followed all of the instructions in the spuriously named "Help" menu. I've gotten the network set up on the G4, but the Cube doesn't list the network anywhere. To spare anyone from 21 questions, here's everything I've done thus far:

- AirPort menu: "Create network" (Ch. 11, WEP), try "Other..." to connect on the Cube w/ no success.

- Internet Connect>AirPort: (both read "On") G4: network connected w/ full signal, status: "Computer-to-computer, Status not available"; Cube: no connection, no signal, status: "Not associated with any network", go thru "Other..." submenu & get "Error joining AirPort network" message, try "Create network" w/ no success

- Network Preferences>AirPort: (on both computers) setup pref. network, set IP addresses w/ same subnet masks, done the whole "delete pref. network, delete AirPort keychain entries, add pref. network" thing; AirPort network status on the G4 has red dot, reads: "Connected to Computer-to-Computer network".

- Sharing: changed computer name/host name, checked all shared categories in "Services"

Not that everything I did was productive, I just went thru everything I could think of. I should add that I've seen nothing of Bonjour anywhere in all of this. I know it shouldn't be this difficult. I'm missing something. Do I need an AirPort dock? What is going on?! Nervous breakdown imminent.
