OS X :: Possible To Connect Mac To PC Using VPN Secure Client?

Mar 4, 2009

I'm looking to buy a new computer and want to upgrade to a Mac. However, I need to be able to connect my home computer to my work desktop since I work from home. The Corp. help desk says I can't do it, but they're also not IT professionals so I'm not ready to take their word for it. Here's what I'm using.

VPN Secure Client NGX R60 HFA2 (Build 001)
Remote Desktop
Work Desktop - Windows XP Pro

Searching the internet, I get the feeling that NGX R60 refers to the PC (Windows) version and NGX R65 refers to the Mac version. If I use Boot Camp, can I switch to Windows mode and connect that way? Is it a terrible PITA to do?

OS X Technologies :: Cannot Connect To Secure Websites

May 10, 2012

I was going to do some homework on Google Docs, and the login page would not load! It would simply try to connect for a while, then time out.After some experimenting, I noticed this happened with all secure web pages (https://), and that non-secure websites (http://) loaded fine. This happens in all browers. I tested Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.Now, this only happens on my user account. This does not happen on my moms account, which I am currently on.We initially thought it was an issue with the parental controls, so we completely disabled them. But the problem still persists.

Applications :: Looking For CISCO Any Connect VPN Client

Nov 3, 2010

So I was using the older CISCO VPN client and now need the CISCO Anyconnect client as well. Anyconnect would not install, it kept telling me that there was already a newer version installed already? So I thought maybe it was the older CISCO VPN client (that I will also need later) so I used APpZapper to remove it. I am still getting that error message when the installer gets to the disk selection screen.

Has anyone seen this before? I have no clue where to go from here.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: App Cannot Connect From Client?

Jul 4, 2012

I have a Lion Server running here on my company. Everything works just fine. With screensharing I can access it, I can start the Server app on the server OK> However I cannot open the server app on a client machine.It shows the Name/Password window, but denies access, even with my admin login credentials. I can access the server with Server Admin, but the Server app only works on the host machine. I presume it must be a DNS issue? I do not like to open the server app on the server because it shows, that it uses 40% of the processor ALL THE TIME, which I also think very strange.

MacBook Pro :: Why Can't Safari Establish Secure Connect With Facebook

Jul 1, 2014

I've tried doing things with proxy. I've tried resetting Safari. I've tried doing things with cookies. I've tried disabling extensions. Next step is to try throwing my laptop out the window. This only started happening yesterday and there is no issues with other sites. It's not my internet connection. I can't get to Facebook by direct URL or through google or through links in my history. Macbook Pro bought in 2012 with Mountain Loin.

Mac Pro :: Secure Empty Trash Is Secure?

May 10, 2010

I have about 60 GB of data on a new 750 GB drive that I want securely erased as I am passing that drive on to someone else.

Zero out the drive or do a 7 pass is secure BUT takes a long time for 750 GB

What if I drag those files to trash and do a SECURE EMPTY TRASH - much quicker as I am not writing 750 GB of zeroes but is it as secure?

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Why Purchase Server AND Client When Already Bought Lion Client

Apr 26, 2012

When I try to purchase the Lion Server from the App Store it displays a message that OS X Lion is also required uand I have to purchase both even when I am logged in and next to the Server item the client version confirms that I have already purchased it with a "download" button - the app has been downloaded but cannot install it as it is waiting for the app store to download the server components... and what if I just want to use it as a client only? Any suggestions besides the obvious $80 purchase.

OS X :: Is Mac More Secure Than Windows 7?

Jan 2, 2011

I am well aware that in practice, Mac OS X is vastly superior in terms of virus protection to Windows. What I am wondering is if this is solely due to the popularity of Windows, or if given an equal market share of Macs and equal number of equally skilled, equally determined hackers Macs would still come out as more secure.

Can anyone with more technical knowledge of the underlying OS architectures answer this question?

OS X :: Have Secure Folders On Computer

May 19, 2009

I'm curious if there is a program out there that will do what I'm looking for. Basically, I'd like to have some secure folders on my computer. Ideally, I'd love it if I could create new folders and put stuff in there I want to keep secure. Double clicking on the folder would prompt a box asking for a password, then once the password is entered, the folder would open. Is there anything out there like this? Is there already something on the mac like this?

OS X :: Keep Private Files Secure On A MBP?

May 31, 2009

I have a group of docs on my MBP that contain private stuff - bank a/c details etc...

Now I keep those files in an encrypted sparse disk image and I'm reasonably confident that if my MBP is stolen they won't be able to access that disk image.

But this just occurred to me: when I open those files in Pages is there a temp copy of the file save somewhere outside of the sparse disk image that could be found?

I really don't want to use file vault to encrypt the whole disk but I do want to be sure those private files won't get accessed.

OS X :: How To Disable Secure Trash?

Oct 4, 2009

Since I got SL and had a small trashcan, opened it up, and instead of emptying it via dock and just hit the "secure" button in the window out of laziness, every time I empty the trash, it does it securely, which takes a lot of time. I have a very large trash load and don't particularly feel like devoting the full CPU to writing over files I simply don't need anymore (mostly old downloads). Is this a feature? How do I disable it?

OS X :: Cannot Secure Delete From Win7?

Mar 14, 2010

Here's my setup: OS X on the first partition of my HDD (partition name Mac) and Win7 on second partition (partition called Bootcamp) but I am not running Win 7 via bootcamp, I am running it via VMFusion which is taking 150 out of 250gigs or partition Bootcamp. For some reason I copied a few sensitive documents into partition Bootcamp, then I moved them to trash when in OS X, then when I go to secure delete it gives me this error: (you can click the image to see it full size). I then tried going into Win7 to securely delete it from there but Win7 does not seem able to access that partition.

Applications :: Unlock Secure PDF's?

May 6, 2010

Basically trying to write a paper on Euro vs. Dollar and have a freely available paper but it is locked so I'm unable to print it off. Find it much easier to print off and make annotations and highlight then simply read off the screen so was wondering if anyone had any ideas how I can print the file?

I found an app but it was shareware and $25 and as I'm a student that isn't really an option for a single citation. Would be very grateful if anyone has any answers.

Applications :: How Secure Is Keychain?

May 22, 2010

How secure is Keychain. Is it prudent to store my passwords, bank info and such there in the secure notes section (under a different keychain and different password than the login)?

Can someone hijack my computer through my internet connection (broswer, network,...) and gain access to my data? Not as concerned about somebody stealing my laptop, since I'll be aware that it has been stolen and can take action. How prevalent is remote data theft by the way?

Have read threads on this topic but I am still a bit confused on where the possible breach could occur.

Laptops :: Most Secure Notebook Lock?

Jan 17, 2010

Simple question: what's the most secure notebook lock of those that are widely available (points for it being available on Amazon or Newegg). I bought the Kensington Microsaver Keyed Twin Notebook Lock (two locks; I'm locking a hard drive as well) and the Kensington Combosaver Combination Notebook Lock Ultra to test out and (eventually) send back to Amazon. Links here for reference:



Obviously tubular locks can be picked by industrious thieves (or just about anyone). Does the same hold true for this particular combo lock? I'd much prefer a combo lock if I knew that it was absolutely secure (minus the combo falling into the wrong hands, of course), but some combo locks can be picked even more easily than tubular locks.

Anyway, my point is that I'd like a lock that acts as slightly more than a mere sight deterrent, and actually could stop a thief from taking my laptop/hard drive. Again, I'm looking for something that fits into the standard security slot and can be bought through Amazon or Newegg or another such retailer. Obviously I'm not expecting magic, since industrial solutions are very expensive, but I'd like to fully explore my options.

MacBook Pro :: Using Secure Empty Trash

Oct 11, 2010

Basically, I am 'securely emptying my trash' as we speak. With that said, why exactly does it say that it currently has to empty around 400 something files? Does that include every single file I've deleted in the past, not using the 'secure empty trash'?

Also, once if I deleted my download history, not using 'secure empty trash', is there a way to retrieve it and use 'secure empty trash' to empty it once again?

I'm just a little confused about the 400 something files being deleted using 'secure empty trash'.
