OS X Server :: ICal - Sharing / Viewing On Home Network

May 12, 2009

I have been unsuccessful in figuring out how to view iCal between computers at home. Can it be set so that updates on one can be viewed automatically on the other? I am wanting it so that it is running unified and not separately between computers. And/ or so that when DH logs in, he sees updates I've made from when I logged in? We have a new iMac (Leopard) and Mac OSX 10.4.11 laptop.

MacBook Air :: Sharing CD / DVD From Win XP Box Over Home Network

Dec 31, 2010

This is my first Mac and I haven't purchased the Superdrive yet. I've been searching Google and found a lot of "hits" on the general topic, but either it's using a different OS (slight difference in screens) or glances over the topic. Can anyone recommend a good thread or site that details how to share a CD/DVD from a Windows XP (Home Edition) box over a home network (Linksys 4 port/wireless) to a MBA (new). The MBA successfully connects to the wireless router and I can access the internet. The Desktop (Windows XP box) successfully connects via RJ45.

Secondly if the above is fairly easy, I'd love to know how I can print from the MBA through the network connection to the PC. The printer is a Xerox WorkCentre M15 (it's a office grade machine which I had presumed works well in a shared environment.) The printer is connected to the PC via a USB connection. However I've ordered a Buffalo LinkStation (I think that's the name) which is a NAS box that has print sharing capabilities, so I could hook the printer up that way if necessary to use for both the PC & Mac.

Mac Mini :: Running 10.5 Leopard Server For File - ICal Sharing

Aug 11, 2008

Does anyone have the Mac Mini setup as a Server for File Sharing, iCal Sharing, etc. using 10.5 Leopard Server. If so, does it work well or are there issues. Currently, I have a Western Digital My Book hooked up to the Time Capsule to share files, but the lack of setting permissions will not work in the near future.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: How To Stop Sharing Home Directory

May 23, 2012

I've got a new Mac Mini Server that I'm using to set up file sharing for the first time. I've enabled OpenDirectory and verified that the users I'm creating are being created in (they show up in the Server app and Workgroup Manager app, but not in System Preferences | Users). 

File sharing seems to be working fine, but I don't like the fact that each user has access to their home folder share when they connect to the server using a mac elsewhere on the network. I prefer only the shares I explicitly set up to be available. 

Thus, a couple questionsWhy is there a home folder created on the server at all? Do I really need a /users/johndoe folder for each and every account in OD?How can I configure sharing such that I won't see the home folder when I connect from another mac on the network? I don't want to leave little "cubby holes" for my users to stuff files into

Applications :: ITunes Home Sharing Doesn't Work On Wireless Network?

May 1, 2010

I tried to set up a home share between mine and my girlfriend's MacBooks. It worked okay both ways, but then I disconnected my ethernet cable and the connection dropped.

I started fiddling around and discovered that home sharing only works as long as any one of the two computers is connected to the router with a cable. The other one can be connected wirelessly. But it won't work if both are wireless at the same time.

MacBook Pro :: Can't SSH To Server On Port 22 From Home Network

Aug 28, 2014

Can't SSH to server on port 22 from home network 

When I try to connect to a remote server over SSH from my home network, I get this error: 

ssh: connect to host XXXXX.com port 22: Operation timed out 

I can't connect to any servers on port 22. Other networking services (like HTTP) are working fine. Also, I can connect to the SSH servers on port 22 from other networks using this same machine. 

I suspect it's a problem with my Airport configuration. What should I do?

OS X :: Editing / Viewing AM/PM From Month View In ICal?

Aug 23, 2009

Am I totally dense, or is there no way to edit AM/PM for an event from the "Month" view pop-up in iCal? And also no option in iCal to use a 24-hour clock? Doesn't this make the month view mostly useless, since you never know if the times are AM or PM?

ITunes :: Music Sharing Vs Home Sharing?

Jul 4, 2012

I am trying to set up my home network to have the iMac share its' media library via iTunes, and access that media on other devices in the home.  I would like to use iTunes Music Sharing, which is a very simple setup on the iMac and doesn't require any Apple ID to be entered on the devices accessing the shared library.  However, I have found that the iPhone and iPad will not even see the shared media library when the iMac is set up to share its' library. 

Only when I enable Home Sharing on the iMac, and configure Home Sharing on the iPhone and iPad, do I see the shared library available on those devices. 

I would like to allow other family members in the household to access the shared media library without requiring them to have my Apple ID and password.  iTunes Music Sharing is supposed to allow this. 

Does iTunes Music Sharing not work when trying to share to an iPhone or iPad?

OS X Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: ICal Server: Free/Busy And/or Availability Not Working?

Jun 14, 2012

I run 10.6.8 server in a VM with Parallels Server for Mac. Lithium pinged me early Monday morning to tell me that my calendar server wasn't reachable. I found it had kernel panicked. After resetting it and verifying the directory structure and permissions, it booted fine. But availability or free/busy wasn't working for all users! The events were all there. Invites could be sent and received but when a user checks for availability when creating events. they see the daily work hours grayed out but not anything corresponding to a scheduling conflict.  

Things I have Tried:

- bounced ical server

- Rebooted the server

- checked the owners and permissions for the data store hierarchy. (_calendar:_calendar 750)

- checked for xattrs on .ics files in several calendars

- deleted .db.sqlite for several users in several dir in their calendar stores

- in the past I have found that some iTIP invitations seem to get "stuck' causing problems with an individual users free/busy and deleting the inbox resolves this so I deleted several inboxes

-I moved a copy of the data store to a test server and pointed several clients at it. 

The issue persisted in all of these cases without any change in behavior with one exception; somewhere (i lost track of where) during this process users also lost their delegation preferences. I'd love to find out how and where that is stored so that it can be restored in the future. It seems pretty fragile... 

I found one way to restore the functionality; copying a users __uid__/<GUID>/calendar out. . Moving all the folders under <GUID> out of the way and dropping the .ics files into ical with their account configured in that instance. Although this worked for selected users, I have many, many users and calendars so this solution would be suboptimal.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Can't Sync ICal Server Data To IPhone

Feb 10, 2012

iTunes sees calendars we have set up in the office (those being shared, coming from iCal Server - Lion), but it will not sync that data to our iphones. I tried this at home where I have my personal computer's client iCal app get calendar data from our work server. It won't sync that either, though iTunes does see (in the sync list) the calendars.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Create A Group Calendar In ICal Server 3?

Jun 22, 2012

I have set up a Mac Mini server to address the calendaring needs of my company. I have also turned on the iCal service using the Server app in the Lion OS. While the shared calendaring functions for individual users of iCal are great, my company is in need of general office calendar for postings of things like vacation times, company holidays, special conferences, etc. Is there a way to configure the Mac Mini server to allow the setup of such a calendar?

Mac Pro :: Delayed When Viewing Folders On Network Disk?

Aug 15, 2008

In my office we have 5 macs on our desktops (all different, this one's a Mac Pro, there's a G4, a couple of eMacs and an Intel iMac), all connected to a G4 server and sharing data on a network hard disk.

Everything works fine except that in the last couple of weeks a problem has arisen whereby when you click a folder on a network drive to view it in the finder, there is a pause before the contents are shown, of between 5-10 seconds.

This doesn't sound much and it doesn't happen every time you select a folder, but if you're browsing through a lot of files it gets very boring indeed.

OS X :: Setting Up Mac As A Remote Server NOT A Local Home Server

Mar 19, 2009

I have a Mac pro that I use at home. I want to set it up as a server. Like a hosting server that I can log on to anywhere in the world, not just on my local network. I want to set it up similar to a hosting account through someone like godaddy. Where I can log in using FTP or something else. Do I need to install Mac OS X server? I've tried searching but I keep find local home servers. Anyone got any ideas? I'm guessing the first thing I need is a static IP, where do I get that?

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Server File Sharing Crashes?

Jun 2, 2012

We have a brand new Mac Pro (12 core with 64GB of RAM) running OS X Lion Server in a corporate environment. The server is running only file sharing and software update servers, and we have around 40 users who need to be connected over AFP at all times. This company runs 24/7 and we have an XSan environment using an ATTO Celerity 8GB 4 channel fiber card (84EN) along with a 6 port 10GB Ethernet card. The Ethernet card is configured in a link aggregation bond using ports 1-4. The idea is that clients who do not have fiber cards installed on their machines can still connect to the SAN via Ethernet and this file server. They AFP connect to the share, and of course the share is the SAN. It's a single mount point and everyone has read/write access. 

The issue is that this machine keeps crashing (multiple times per day) and I cannot find any reason why. Syslog shows nothing of value and I've called into Apple Enterprise Support who also brought nothing to the table. 

We initially had SMB and AFP file sharing activated but as soon as a Windows 7 client connected the machine was brought down. So, I disabled SMB via terminal (sudo serveradmin stop smb) and deactivated it via the Server app for the share point). That at least allows the machine to be up for 4-6 hours before crashing again. 

This is seemingly the simplest of setups for file sharing and I would've thought that this beast of a machine would be able to handle being a file server without issue for far more than 40 clients. I'm seeing high CPU usage, which Apple support told me was perfectly normal (around 60% on the kernel_task process and around 55% on the AppleFileServer process). It also seems to consume all 64GB of memory, though it shows 60GB as inactive, but at the same time it's paging in and out. 

Virtually all of the clients are running Lion (10.7.4), the server itself is running 10.7.4. There are a few ethernet connected clients running 10.6 along with two running 10.5. As I mentioned I disabled SMB so there are no Windows computers connecting to this machine at this time (though it would be nice to get that functionality back if AFP can be stabilized). 

This company simply cannot be down, especially not multiple times per day. The only way to bring things back and running from a crash is to hard boot the machine via the power button as you cannot perform a restart or a shutdown. Once the machine comes back up everything is back to working order for a few more hours until it happens again.

MacBook Pro :: IOS 7.1 / Home Sharing Between Mac And PC?

Aug 22, 2014

I have recently bought a mac book pro, and i am trying to get my iTunes library from my pc computer to my mac. I have successfully authorised homesharing on both computers. My pc homesharing works, and allows me to see and use any music that i have bought from iTunes that is on my mac. However,  it does not work the other way around, so my mac will not let me use/see any of my pc library (which is very large) via homesharing. When I click on the music menu on my mac and scroll down to my linked homeshare computer, it 'loads' for about a minute and then stops. This is very frustrating as my all my main music is on my pc library, and I don't want to have to download everything again, CD by CD.

ITunes :: How To Get Home Sharing To Work

Sep 22, 2009

Home Sharing sounds simple enough. Has anyone got this to work? I have searched for documentation on how to set this up and Apple has only made a video mentioning how to do this. It is vague though and doesn't explain the context for set up.

For example. Does Home Sharing only work with one account? What if I have an iTunes account and my Wife has an account, does one of us lose all of our content when we share? You are supposed to be able to transfer content among all local shares. What happens next? Do I need to authorize each file to work on another computer/iPhone/Touch? I have not gone all the way with setting up Home Sharing as I don't want to go down a long path and be stuck at the end.

MacBook Air :: Home Screen Sharing From MBP?

2) Same question but when on the road.

Applications :: Home Sharing Between Mac And PC - Firewalls

Aug 8, 2010

My man and I are finally trying to centralize our music and it involves taking it from my old Macbook (OS 10.4.something) and putting it onto his much more reliable PC with Windows XP. Anyway, iTunes is all updated on both. Home sharing is activated on both. I'm logged in on both with my itunes account info. I can see the library from each computer on the other one. Things should be great! However, when I'm on my Mac and I click on his library, I CAN see the few files in there. But when I'm on the PC and click on the library on my mac, it says it's loading and then either 1) just hangs until it quits or 2) says that there's some firewall business going on and I should check to make sure everything allowed on both computers. Well, I did that.

In fact, because I'm not the most computer savvy chick out there, I just turned the firewalls off on both computers. I'm sure there is still some more messing around to be done, but here's my big question: Which computer do you think is having the issue? If the Mac can see the PC's library, but the PC can't load the Mac's library, which computer likely has some wonky settings? Oh, and I did search through the forums (this is my first time here!) and I didn't find anything exactly like this. I have opened and closed iTunes a bunch of times, and turned home sharing on and off a few times since that has seemed to be some general advice out there. But it's still not working.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: ICal Server Shared Calendars "403" Error?

Jun 13, 2012

We are currently running a 10.7.4 Server with 10.7.4 clients. The problem is with the calendar system's sharing funtion. Some users will consistently receive an error message "403" Stating that the user does not have permission to edit the item when they edit an item or change an existing event to another user's shared calendar. After some troublshooting I found that if I made the claendar in question the default calendar in iCal, I was able to create vents without problem. I have tried removing the problemed users from that calendar's list of shared users, and changing permissions back and forth from Read to Read/Write without any success. There are no iCloud or MobileMe accounts on any of the client machines, a pertinent negative as searching for a resolution to this issue yeilds many similar problems related to those services.  

Summary:Creating or editing an event in a shared calendar within iCal (while not the host of sdaid calendar) results in a error code 403. However, when the user in question changes their default calendar to the shared calendar, there is no issue creating new events. The issue is only persistant with a few users. Other users have no issue manipulting existing records in the same shared calendar.  

OS X Lion Server (10.7.4)
iCal service is configured properly
Clients are all running 10.7.4
