OS X Leopard :: Connection Failed - Server May Not Exist Or Non Operational

Connection failed: the server may not exist or is not operational. Check the server name. Is there any way to turn this message off. I get it every time I start up my computer. It usually takes about 2 minutes for this to come up and nothing will function until it shows up. I am networked with two other computers that are usually turned off. i was wondering if it was trying to connect to them.

IMac Intel :: Connection Failed - Server May Not Exist Or Unavailable
I am getting this message every time I restart my imac. Connection failed. The server "Terese's Macbook Pro" may not exist or it is unavailable at this time. Check the server name or IP address, check you network connection, and then try again. I was getting this message when I had that Macbook Pro I have since gotten rid of that computer and I still get the message. I cannot figure out how to stop this from happening.

I have recently been unable to get to my iDisk and keep getting the error: Your iDisk is not available because connecting to the iDisk server failed. An unexpected error occurred )error code - 5016). We recently had a new Watchguard installed so I am wondering if that is somehow blocking access?

MacBook Pro :: "Network Connection The Communication Device Selected For Your Connection Does Not Exist?
The internal modem in my PowerBook Pro (mid 2010) shows up as "not connected" in the Network pane of system preferences, but I can't figure out how to get it to connect. When I enter my phone number and click the connect button, I get an error message: "Network Connection The communication device selected for your connection does not exist. Verify your settings and try reconnecting." Say what? It says it exists in the System Preferences, shows it in the list on the left. How can it not exist?

OS X :: Unusual Connection Failed Warning About File Server
In the last week I have been getting a persistent warning on my desktop: "Connection Failed. This file server is running on your machine. Please access the volumes and files locally." Sometimes there will be 5 or 6 of these warnings to be cleared from the desktop. All my drives are mounted correctly (2 internal 1 external USB drive) and there are no other file servers set up on my network. My machine is 400MHz PowerPC G4 700 MB SDRam running 10.4.11.

OS X Leopard :: No WPA2 Connection / Connection Failed (-7 Unspecified Failure)
I just finished installing MAC OS X 10.5.6 on a Macbook and am unable to connect to network using a new AirportExpress N with the following configuration:
WPA 2 Personal Security
SSID broadcast off
MAC filtering enabled
Connection (Bridge Mode)
I find the following entry in the log:
1/5/09 5:07:55 PM SystemUIServer212 Error joining Philippe II Network: Connection failed (-7 unspecified failure)

The weirdest thing is that as soon as I connect the macbook to the ethernet port (by cable) it get of course an ip address through the Ethernet port, after disconnecting (unplug) the AirPort also get an other ip address and works until it goes to sleep after waking up it troubles again?

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Time Machine Restore - Mailbox Does Not Exist
I just recently had a hard drive fail on my server (Mac Mini 2006, Leopard Server). No problem, I thought, I'll get a new drive and restore everything from my fairly recent Time Machine backup. Everything went pretty smoothly, except that now I can't access mail, via mail client or webmail. When I do, I get the error "Mailbox does not exist".

I've tried rebuilding the mailboxes from the Mail tab on Server Admin. I've tried disabling and enabling the mail for this user in Workgroup Manager. I've searched the web without result. I don't necessarily need the pieces of mail that were in there, but I'm stumped as to how to recreate the mailbox (Or do whatever it actually wants me to do) so I can use my mail again.

OS X Tiger :: "failed To Establish Connection To Server" - Connecting To Flash
i play an online game( and when i try to access one part of the game that connects to flash. i get this error. "Failed to establish a connection to the server. Please make sure that network ports 1582 and 1028 aren't blocked by a router or firewall. If you're sure the ports aren't blocked, please contact support." the firewall on my computer (mac 10.4 using safari) is turned OFF so i should not have to open those ports, right? use an Airport express as my wifi router. it has a firewall on it but i have ruled that out by plugging the ethernet cord directly into my computer. I have contacted game support and they are not sure what the problem is. I believe the problem is the connection between my computer and Flash.

OS X Leopard :: Opening Printer Connection Failed / Unable To Open Printer Connection
I have seen a few other discussions about this and have followed the advice (that I found, perhaps there is some I haven't seen), but I still can't get around this. After a software update my printer now comes up with this error message "Opening Printer Connection Failed: Unable to open the printer connection. Please check your printer connections and check for printer errors". The printer is connected by a USB cord. I have checked that the computer recognises the USB and have also tried resetting the printing system and re-starting the computer and adding the printer again. This has not solved the problem. I am not on "printer sharing". I still get the same error message when I try to print.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Access To Calendar Failed - Web Server Not Configured Correctly
I'm not really sure whether my problem is related to Calendar Server or to the Webserver / Apache. iCal Client and also iPhone work fine and can access the calendar on the Mac Mini Server both internally and externally via non-secured and also via ssl-secured access (I activated the non-secured port as well to check whether it relates to that which doesn't seem to be the case). Only if I access the calendar through the web interface I get the message "Zugriff auf Kalender fehlgeschlagen, da der Webdienst nicht korrekt konfiguriert ist." which I'ld translate to "Access to Calendar failed due to the web service not configured correctly." or something similar.
I receive that for different user accounts. Does anybody have any clue? Some background on the setup:

-Mac OS X 10.6.3 on Mac Mini Server
-Mailserver, Webserver running and reachable via dyndns domain
-no DNS server configured (since I run a separate router on my LAN)

Of course I checked the obvious:

1.) User has "Calendar" access enabled in the Open Directory
2.) In Server Admin on Web Settings Wiki Blogs and also Calendar is enabled
3.) Diabled and re-enabled things without luck
4.) rebooted (I know this helps only on Windows machines but in the end you try everything, right?)

I remember I checked several more things in the Web Services area but I'm not sure whether this was broken before or after. I also don't remember anymore what exactly I activated (if this is related to it at all). I'm not sure when this issue started or what I could have done to cause this.

OS X Leopard :: Connection Failed When Using AFP On Two Machines
I have just upgraded my MacBook Pro to Leopard and then ran Software Update to download and install the 10.5.3. And now my file sharing between my two Macs no longer works. Prior to the upgrade, I had Tiger on the laptop. At that time, my iMac, which also runs Leopard 10.5.3, could access the files on the Tiger system. Although the MBPro running Tiger could not access the iMac running Leopard, at least I could partially share my files between the two. Now none of the two machines can connect to each other. They appear on the Finder window, they are recognized as a MacBook Pro and as a iMac respectively but when I click on one using the other's Finder, it stays there on "Connecting..." and after a minute or so, it shows "Connection failed".

I tried already to disable the Stealth Mode of both firewalls. No good. Tried also to set Firewall to allow all incoming connections, then restarting the AFP server and then setting the Firewall again to allow only essential services (AFP is listed on both machines, by the way). Also no good. It only works when I set the firewall of the other machine to allow all incoming connections and leave it there. But I am simply not willing to leave my firewall open that way. Has Apple published something on this already? Does anybody know a bypass to this, perhaps changing specific files of the firewall? (If so, please advise in details how to do it as I am a newbie in the Mac world.)

OS X Leopard :: Cant Connect To All Of Macs On Our Network / Connection Failed
I work in a mix Mac and PC environment at a video production facility. We have about eight Macs always connected and two or three additional laptops that may or may not be connected at any given time.

From our Final Cut Pro 1 workstation, I can connect to our ProTools 3 workstation's drop-box, but ProTools 3 cannot connect to the drop-box on the Final Cut Pro 1 workstation. Every other Mac on the network CAN connect to FCP1's drop-box EXCEPT ProTools 3. When you try to connect they system appears to try and eventually times out. Using "connect as" gets the same result. ProTools 3 can also connect to every drop-box on the network EXCEPT FCP1. The setting in sharing and network between the computers matches.

OS X Leopard :: Can't Get Firefox To Work / Connection Failed
Since I installed 10.5.7 I cannot get FireFox to work. I installed the latest version but no joy. I get the following error in a popup dialog.... "Connection failed THe server may not exist or it is not operational at this time. Check the server name or IP address and your network settings again." Funny thing is that Firefox never even appears even though its icon is in the dock. The message just keeps periodically appears. The only way for me to stop it is to kill it via the terminal. Safari is working just fine.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Connection Failed When Printing
I have a desktop Mac that I used Migration Assistant to transfer my user setting etc. prior to selling my MacBook. All works well, except that everytime I try to print a document it pauses while looking for a shared network volume for a while before coming back saying "Connection Failed to MacBook". I deleted all printers and resent printers from preferences to add them back manually and repaired permissions however the problem is still happening everytime I try to print a document. Its as though its looking for the old MacBook.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Using Permanent Server To Server VPN Connection?
I have two Snow Leopard Servers in different locations which I would like to connect to each with a VPN over the Internet so that it appears as if they are in the same LAN. Something like:

ServerA_live_IP <- ("permanent" VPN over the Internet looking like a LAN) -> ServerB_dynamic_IP

The connection should be permanent without a user being logged into either of the two. Both servers need to still be able to communicate "normally", so not all traffic can go through the VPN even if only in one direction (routing?). In addition it has to be actually server to server, I cannot put any other devices such as dedicated VPN appliances between the servers.

OS X Leopard :: Connection Failed On PS CS3 Startup / Not Connected To The Network
I have posted this query on the Adobe PS discussion board as well so as to maximise coverage. I have a copy of CS3 installed on two machines, a Mac Pro and MacBook Pro. Both machines running OSX at the current latest level 10.5.7

The Mac Pro CS3 serial number is the one supplied on the retail packaging and the serial number of CS3 on the Macbook is a substitute number that Adobe gave me when I discovered that I had deleted a machine's system and data before deactivating CS3. I was given the new number so that I could install on the as then new Macbook Pro.

On the Macbook Pro when connected to the WWW Photoshop starts up promptly and works correctly. When the Macbook Pro is not connected to any network Photoshop takes a very long time to start and displays the

Connection Failed - The server may not exist etc etc message.

Repeated clicking on the Photoshop icon in the Dock will eventually get Photoshop running. The error message appears while PS is scanning for plug-ins. On the Mac Pro Photoshop starts up correctly whether or not the machine is connected to the network. On the Macbook Pro other CS3 applications start up correctly regardless of whether the computer is connected to the network. The question is how can I overcome this problem.

Since upgrading them to Snow Leopard, none of them will connect to any wireless network -- regardless of the router (AirPort, Linksys, Cisco, etc.) and regardless of the type of security (open, WEP, WPA, etc.).

Every time I attempt to connect, I get the message that the "connection failed." Here's a 20 second screen recording of what's happening.

Snow Leopard :: Unable To Access Win7 Shares - Connection Failed
I have been through this countless times. I have Snow Leopard 10.6.6 on a MBP and windows 7 on a desktop. I have multiple shares on the windows machine that I access from my mac. All of a sudden, when transferring a file over smb, the transfer quits because the data "cannot be read or written" and I am unable to access the shares. When I try to reconnect to the shares I get an error saying:

"Connection Failed. There was an error connecting to the server "". Check the server name or IP address, and then try again. If you are unable to resolve the problem contact your system administrator (Thats Me)."

This problem persists until I restart both the mac and the pc. I use account protected sharing, not guest sharing on the pc but I have tried both with the same result. I have adjusted the 'Network Security: LAN Manager Authentication Level' in windows. Every 12 months or so I do a clean install on my systems and the problem disappears. After a period of time that could be 1 day or 10 months the problem returns. I have seen this issue since 10.5 and Vista and it keeps crawling back.

OS X Leopard :: When Open Help Viewer From Help Menu Get A Long Pause The A - Connection Failed - Popup
When I open Help Viewer from a Help menu, I get a long pause, the a "Connection Failed" popup. So I followed the conventional wisdom, deleted the plist files and Help's cache, repaired permissions, emptied trash and restarted. Same problem. Elsewhere in the Discussions I followed a link that told me how to turn on/off Help Viewer debugging and at the bottom of this post is what gets logged. Can anyone decipher the entries and, more importantly, solve the problem? Help seems to be trying to connect to a URL and is having trouble finding it. I have no other problems with Help after it ceases to look for the URL. Nor do I have any problems with Internet browsing, etc.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Upgrade Installation Failed On XServe
We have 3 Xserves, two which were on 10.5 and a new one that come loaded with 10.6. We want to move the other two servers to 10.6. I made a NetInstall of the 10.6 DVD and used that to upgrade one of the two Xserves without issue. When I tired to upgrade the remaining Xserve, however, the install failed. There's no error message, no hint of what's gone wrong -- only that the OS "cannot be installed on this computer". I've tried everything -- NetInstall, trying to install off the DVD directly, even trying to do a fresh install (and not an upgrade). Nothing works. Is there any way to find out what's causing the install to fail?

OS X Leopard :: Mac Help App "Connection Failed"
When I try to launch Mac Help I get the spinning beach ball of doom and after a few minutes the following message: Connection failed

The server may not exist or it is not operational at this time. Check the server name or IP address and your network connection and try again. It repeats this about three times and then FINALLY the help app loads normally. It is incredibly frustrating that I have to wait 10 minutes to use my help app. I called Apple Tech Support when I first got my iMac a year-and-a-half ago and Apple Tech Support was of no help whatsoever. The only solution they could offer was to do a clean install. I finally gave in a did just that (a clean install) and IT DID NOT WORK. After all this time and several OS updates my help app still gives me the run-around. I found this question in the archives unanswered so I know I AM NOT the only person with this problem.

Server V10.5 Leopard :: Mds: Peer Checkin Failed Error Message

The server "" may not exist or it is unavailable at this time. Check the server name or IP address, check your network connection, and then try again. The only button option is "OK." The error pops up repeatedly. The external drive does not appear in my list of shared servers. Since this IP address is no longer valid and never will be again, how can I make this error go away?

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Migration Failed - How To Restore Config From TimeMachine Backup
I migrated a Mac OS X server 10.6.3 installation that used to be running on a VMWare Fusion virtualized machine to a new computer. After the installation, I used the transfer settings from another computer or TimeMachine backup to set up the new machine, or so was the plan.

The setup process was busy for a long time (slogin was possible after a while, so I could monitor what was going on from the command line by using ps auxww). In the middle of, or shortly after migrating the IMAP database and a few GB worth of mail, the migration failed, and the installer requested me to reboot. The system booted up normally, except that OpenDirectory information was not present. So while the mail database is there, there are no mail users, and no network user accounts present.
