I have downloaded the new version of Skype and it just won't let me log on. It says failed to log in: unable to connect to server. I try logging in my iPhone and Pc and they're fine. I have even downloaded the older versions of Skype and it's the same error.
The problem suddenly popped up today: I wanted to send a message and suddenly got notification that Mail app is unable to send the message using Yahoo server, which I noticed being listed as offline. I clicked on "check connection" and it showed Gmail IMAP and IMAP as well as Yahoo IMAP being connected while Yahoo SMTP not.
On the right side of Yahoo SMTP Red "dot" there was the instruction, which recommended to check settings of the network connection as well as to make sure if the server supports SSL, and if "NO" - deselect it. I'm not as tech savvy so the marked part is just the Chinese language for me: what is SSL, how to check if the server supports it etc?

I am using Skype 6.15 (334). I made a call and now after the call has ended Skype will not log out, nor will it allow me to Quit. The Quit option is grayed out in the menu, both with & without the option key. I have attempted to force quit and restart the computer. Skype blocks any force quit or restart every time. I did not have any issues with Skype (or any other apps) prior to "upgrading" to Mavericks.
I have been given the attached one-pager with screenshots of how to configure a Windows Outlook client to work with our corporate email system (Exchange).
I want to configure the Mail client on my Mac, however.
Can anyone give me a clue where these things are entered? When I add a new account in Mac Mail, and choose Exchange 2007, I don't see similar fields. My guesses so far have resulted in "the server cannot be contacted on port 443
I work remotely a lot. After I upgraded to Lion server, I am unable to connect to the VPN service remotely unless I physically go over to the server (mac pro) and log into the desktop manually.
Previously, if my Snow Leopard server restarted (due to power failure, etc) and it re-booted up to the login screen, I could still logon to the VPN remotely as the VPN service would always startup (at the login screen) without a user having to be logging in.
Now, with Lion Server (10.7.4), if the server restarts, I cannot login back to the VPN. I have to get someone to go over to the server and manually login, then I can access VPN just fine. (I do not, and will not turn automatic login on on my server due to the huge security risk.)
How do I get the Lion Server VPN service to startup before or at the logon screen even if no user is logged in?
I'm trying to using Server admin on a remote Mac to manage our xserve. Both are running 10.6.8 and I've installed the Server Admin tools onto the mac. Both the Workgroup manager and Server Monitor work OK on the mac, but whenever I try and connect the Server Admin it always comes up with the error : "The login information is incomplete for this server or is not valid. The server failed to accept the login information you provided for <servername>. Check the name and password and try to log on again" I can't connect using the server name, FQDN, or IP address. The macs are all using OD and AD and I've tried both AD and local OD accounts (all administrative) but to no avail. DNS is working OK and I can resolve the server-name with dig and dig -x. I can screen share the server so connectivity isn't the problem.
I have problem with a clients windows laptop. It used to be able to connect to their companies mac server. But since he got back from a trip the laptop doesn't connect anymore. I can ping the server. And when I try to redo the network drive I'm prompted to enter my credentials. But whatever I enter it doesn't work.I already tried to use SERVERNAMEuser.... and also check security policies.
I am running on OSX version 10.9.4?I have the latest software updates, including quicktime, java, adobe,For some reason my Skype and also my Pages applications are" unexpectedly quitting" This has been happening for a few days now. Initially i thought my skype was the problem So I had a look here and did all these steps URL>...
So clearly it isn't the application though if it's also happening with Pages. I have ran through my disk utility and tried to repair disks and files My memory and my Ram should all be fine, says there is plenty.
I am running multiple services with the latest version of OS X Server (10.6.8) on my MacMini (web, vpn, mail, ichat, ical, address book, etc.) . Everything has been working fine for the last year and no changes have been made to the server, settings, ISP, or DNS, with the exception of installing the latest system software updates. Now, when I try to open my websites or connect remotely via VPN I get a "cannot connect to sever" message. All other services are still working as they should. The server is hooked up to an Airport Extreme via a cable modem with a static IP. I have tried the following thus far:
1) checked all cables and they are plugged in and seated properly.
2) restarted the server, airport extreme, and cable modem
3) turned Web services off and on again in Server Admin
4) checked the DNS via the web and my site addresses are pointing to my static IP address
5) checked the Airport's port mapping to make sure Web Service was still on
6) checked my websites SSL certificate to make sure it's current and enabled
7) tried disabling SSL
8) created and enabled a new self-signed SSL certificate

I'm assuming the "key.pem' does not exist or is empty" part is the issue, but I am a novice and have no idea what that means.
When skyping, my mac book pro keeps dropping callswith one person and they told me that more calls get dropped with me than with anyone else.. Apparently, it's the worst with my computer according to those I skype with.
After updating itunes thsi morning I then tried to download Skype. It seemed to download ok but when I went to open it I got the message "You cannot open the application "Skype" because it is not supported on this architecture"
I have reached this website after scrawling to find a solution on the internet. I hope someone can help me with this problem.I have a 4 years old G4 ibook (OS 10.3.7), and have been using it for internet, skype and foto-storage mainly.Situtation:Yesterday I tried to use the internet (Firefox browser) and skype, but the skype didn't work at all. Since firefox was not working properly either, I did force quit and restarted the computer. I attempted this several times until I could use both applications (never had any problems before). However, Skype didn't work, and in the end, I could not quit firefox at all. At last I did force quit again, and saw white screen with apple icon at the centre when restarting. No time-spinning mark, the apple just sits there.
Troubleshooting that I have done: I called up support center, and they told me that it's very likey that the computer is stopping at "'carnel" stage (I'm sorry but I don't know what this is). The possibility that it's got something to do with HD is 50/50, so I may have to send it to repairing service in the worst case. They told me to try using Disc Install CD1 to check/repair something wrong in my computer. So I followed the instructions and inserted the install CD and restart the computer with "c" key. The computer read the CD and Installer window showed up. As instructed in a manual, I used First Aid in Disc Utility, and tried "repairing disc". After a while it said "1 HFS has been repaired". It also said that Macintosh HD doesn't seem to have a problem", so I quit the disc utility and restarted the computer.
Against my expectation, the same white screen with apple came up on the screen and sits there with no other movements.I'm afraid of trying somethinig without further so I hope I can get the same story or ideas that someone here might have.
On my Xserve, the Server Admin app has quit working. It wascomplaining that the servermgr_info plugin had failed. NowServer Admin reports the following message; There is no server available at the address you entered. Xserve Dual 1.33GHz G4 10.4.8 Server Admin 10.4.7I have tried repairing permissions; rebooting; deleting the server admin preference file; ran fsck; using the FQDN, or the127.0.0.1 or hostname.local. Nothing works to get server adminto run again. Server won't run on the local xserve, or from another machine remotely.
On the right hand side of my desktop when I download a program it seems to put an icon or doc on the right hand side. Like right now I have a skype dmg file I can't delete as it says Skype is in use, then right above that is a seperate skype icon that even if I drag to dock it still stays on the right hand side (like a copy), then I downloaded open office again and it put the install icon there (like when you open and you drag your program to teh applications folder)
I'm trying to do something fairly simple — allow users from an external LDAP server to access services on my Lion server. Following Apple's instructions, I can't find the "Connect to Directory" choice in the Manage menu of Server.app. I always start by turning off OD by using Server Admin to configure as "Standalone Directory". This is what I see in Server.app after doing that.
Apple's instructions say if the Manage Network Accounts option appears, you need to first set up the server to host network accounts. So I click that option, which seems the be the same thing as creating an OD Master using Server Admin, as far as I can tell.Then I try to add a new user.For some reason, the "type" dropdown list exists, and lets me choose "Imported user from directory", even though I haven't setup any other directory server. Of course, when I search for a username, it finds nothing.Apple's instructions say to now choose "Connect to Directory" from the Manage menu, but that option doesn't show up. I only have what shows in the screenshot above, sans "Manage network accounts" now. How can I get this to appear?
I've tried a couple different DC++ clients, including "Shakespeer". However, I cannot always connect to the server's I need to (I'm certain it isn't a server issue). When I do, I cannot do a proper search, it will say it is searching but never do any results show up. I'm actually considering installing Vista for the sole reason that I can't find a proper DC++ client for my Mac.
I am having no luck connecting to a remote server using the DW8 remote connection in the sites definition dialog. Maybe somebody out there can help.-In DW8 I: -Select FTP as the connection. FTP service is turned on the remote Mac Server (10.4) - I have entered the web address (IP) 10.5..... in the "hostname or FTP" addresss field- Entered htdocs/ (root web folder) in the "folder on testing server" field - Entered the webserver username in "FTP login" field
Our company has gotten new email addresses from a new email provider. In Outlook it is fairly easy to set up. Everything is 'found' automatically.
On my Mac however, I have to setup an Exchange account in Mac Mail by hand. The problem is, the account won't connect to the mail server which is found through a internal ip address. When I ping that address through Terminal it works, so that ip address is ok. When I setup the mail account however it says 'The Exchange Server at '172.**.**.**' won't respond'. User and Pass are ok cause I can view my mail through the webmail account.
Why can I Ping that 172 ip address, but Mail won't connect to it? Is there something the IT department should do extra to make it work?
I've looked high and low for the answer to this with no luck. I've mapped a lot of my windows network shares at work on my MacPro running leopard without problems. However, I'm extremely stuck trying to connect to the last one which is located on a special DMZ (demilitarized zone) server.On my windows machine I simply use the ip method and I'm prompted for login credentials. It's important to note that the login credentials for this DMZ network share are different than my usual work domain login (the Mac uses that same login with no issues).
How can I tell my Mac to connect to a server, once its booted?
My server does appear under the "shared" category in finder so once Im booted, I have no problem accessing it but my iPhoto is also stored under there and in order for iTunes to talk with it properly, it needs that server to be connected to when I boot and I dont want to manually connect to the server every time.
Currently, the method that I have and it works is that I just dragged the particular server folder as one of my "log in items" under system preference > Accounts > Login Items.
Only issue with it is that once booted, finder opens the window as well. Its of course really no big deal, but wondering if I can just tell my Mac to connect to it, without that window popping up.
Just began using a leopard machine and needed to install server admin in order to connect to our 10.3x server. I was forced to install the 10.5 version of Server Admin (10.4 would not install). I can connect using the Workgroup Manager and am able to use the Server Monitor app. When launching Server Admin. I cannot connect - receive message that no server is available at this address -- using the static IP address of our server.
