I'm trying to setup mail on Lion Sever (7.3). The only way I can get it to accept incoming mail is to specify the whole FQDN of the server in the address.†For example the domain name is example.com and I have a user set up called john. Sending mail to firstname.lastname@example.org works.
But sending mail to email@example.com (which is what I want) returns an error: 554 554 5.7.1 <firstname.lastname@example.org>: Relay access denied (state 13).†
For internal DNS, I have: example.com - primary zonemail.expample.com - alias server.example.comserver.example.com - 192.168.1.2 [URL] - alias server.example.com†MX record [URL]
I see references here to problems in mail on 7.3 but not this specific problem.
After I upgraded to 10.7.4 I receive popup windows informing that: This computer's local hostname "ComputerName" is already in use on this network. The name has been changed to "ComputerName-1.local" every time my Mac wakes up. The number at the end of computer name increases every time I wake my Mac Pro up.
- Disk permissions repair brings no errors. - After Mac restart - the same result - As before I use both LAN and WiFi connections with LAN in higher priority.
Info: Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4), 6Core 3.33GHz 24GB 4x3TB HDD+SSD
Before last week, I was always able to go to http://localhost. Now all I get is Unable to connect. I don't care if I go to http://192.168.1.xxx or 127.0.0.1. Still won't work. It use to go to whatever my index.html file was. Now nothing. What might have happened?
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?
I use an external DNS that includes MX and mail entries and A records that point to a static IP provided by my ISP, stored in my router, that in turn accesses services on my lion server via port forwarding. The DNS service on my lion server was turned on but I turned it off and I'm not sure I've noticed any difference - I've got issues either way. Do I need it for any mail server related reason?
Does anybody know the host and ip address of where the apple software update is downloaded from under software update¬† ¬†
As little snitch is showing that it is coming from ¬†this¬†¬† Ip address :18.104.22.168¬† Port : 80 Host : cds73.lcy.llnw.net¬† ¬†Which belongs to RIPE Network Coordination Centre which is in Amsterdam¬†
I have a machine running OS X Server v10.4.11, and I'm trying to export some NFS mounts.¬† I have the intended shared directory (a folder called NetBackups on a disk called xRAID L) added in Workgroup Manager, with access set to "World", but if I issue the command to another OSX machine (IP has been replaced with 0s) "sudo mount -t nfs 000.000.000.000:/Volumes/xRAID L/NetBackups test", I get an access denied error.
having a problem connecting to my built-in FTP server. I can connect to it from the macbook pro it is running on by using my IP address or my loopback address. however when I try to connect to it from another host (on the same subnet as my MBP) I can't. My MBP just doesn't respond to the connection attempts. I ran wireshark on my MBP and it shows that it doesn't respond. I can see the SYN packets coming in but no SYN/ACK packets are sent back.
I have gone through the setup of my newly installed lion server software.¬† I setup a server.example.private host name and have turned on file sharing, and VPN.¬† I bought the server software so I can access my host computer from my IPad and a windows based laptop.¬† When I attempt to setup the profile manager I get to the screen in the directory admin setup that asks for the host name and password, etc.¬† The name and host name are already populated with a generic names and the password fields are blank.¬† Whether I leave the generic fields blank and try and enter a new password or change the generic fields and password to something new I get the same error message every time.¬† It says "Computers host name is invalid. The host name does not resolve to any configured address on this comp. ensure the host name is correct.¬† How do I find out what the correct host name is for my computer?†
I am using the ifconfig command to change my ip address as follows:ifconfig en0 down ifconfig en0 169.254.x.x netmask 255.255.0.0ifconfig en0 -arp upThe commands claim to complete succesfully, but the ip stack does not seem to recognize its new ip address.For example: from a remote machine I issue the command ping 169.254.x.and receive no response. Using wire shark I can see the ping request are being received on machine 169.254.x.x, yet no response is sent.
I am currently trying access profile manager on both my macbook air and iphone 4s on local wifi. However, it would just hang when i try to access it via "http://macmini.local/profilemanager". If i try go to go url...I can access url... fine and ping "macmini" fine.
I would like to ask about the macbook pro late 2008. I am willing to own a network local sharing server in my University so, students can upload their multimedia files and movies etc to my mac using the local network of the university connection. Student will use torrents apps to download files from the server so they log to the website which I will create and they download the tracking file then they open it and use it to download the file from the server via torrent apps. My Macbook pro is 2.4 with 4g ram and with 380G HDD I own a new macbook pro late 2009 so I will not use the old one and I will keep it online 24/7. But I don't know if I can use it or not for this purpose.
Our new Lion Server has a static IP Address pointed to over the internet by our registrar's zone file. Planning the Lion Server installation process with the intent of hosting Web, Mail and Open Directory services to a small number of users who are nearly all located off-site. I do also want Lion Server to be a caching DNS Server and DHCP authority on the local network to replace what dnsmasq does on our current Linux server.
I am looking forward to offloading some of the lower level Linux administration tasks and putting myself in the hands of the Lion Server Setup Assistant and Server App :-) but at the same time don't understand some of¬† its assumptions and fear having to spend a lot of time experimenting and re-installing.
So, specifically, I want the Server App to know that my Lion Server has a "Host Name for the Internet" but that the DNS it sets up will not be the DNS for my zone - I will be managing that through my registrar's interfaces.
Second problem is my fnot understanding what name space devices on the local network will / should use. e.g.¬† The Linux server will be available for backups etc¬† on the local intranet (and optionally have a static ip address on the Internet) but MacBooks, PCs, iPads and iPhones will be served ip addresses by the Lion Server's DHCP. So will / should these dynamic devices have their machine names fully qualified by our domain name with RFC 1918 style ip addresses or something like .local?¬† How do I tell this to Lion's Server App / Setup Assistant? How easy is it to update these initial settings later?
For myself and several others at our organization, Mail.app started crashing a couple of days ago whenever a message is opened and the sender's email address is in our Exchange Global Address Book.¬† The question then is, how does Mail display or look up those addresses differently in the message reading window/pane rather than "external" email addresses?¬†
Is there any way to retrieve the number of page hits from Server Admin?¬† All I can seem to find is requests/second but would prefer to have page hit count instead.¬†how to get this number via Server Admin
Whenever I open Safari, it takes over a minute to open the first web page. Once the page is open, it surfs very fast. so it's not a problem with my internet speed. Just a problem waiting for Safari to open the first page.
i work at a school and at the moment we don't have a mac server, so i'm using server tools on each local machine to set group policies for active directory logins. I want geektool to be enabled on each user when they login, i've got this to work so far by running this applescript I found online
I have two sets of contacts in my address book, one on local drive and one from iCloud. How do I delete all the contacts from my local drive as they are all out of date?
I have tried deleting the contacts but they keep reappearing. I have tried to create a new group and they keep disappearing! I have read forums and some talk about removing the two addressbook.plist files but I don't even have those in my preference folder...
If I do not have those files, where is my address book storing these contact information and how do I get rid of them? It is driving me nuts having to deal with two lots of each contact and not being able to create groups or delete contacts.
Info: MacBook Pro (15-inch Late 2008), Mac OS X (10.7.4)
when I open Safari, the page hangs up for a bit, I usually have to click on "Empty Cache"...then it continues loading. What is causing the delay? this also happens when I start up my Macbook Pro, so I know my cache is not full.
I just recently got DSL in my home and I am experiencing super slow load times on both Safari and Firefox. I know that is not a problem with the internet, modem, or router becasue my parents PCs and my PS3 all run perfectly on the WiFi connection.
I also recently updated to Snow Leopard on my Macbook.
Have any idea why I can't get my computer back up to speed?
I've recently brought a mac book never had one before. In the month I've had it page loading is really slow i have done the required updates, and nothing has been downloaded. I have tried some of the things people have suggested, cache delete, history delete, etc but nothing has worked.
I setup my hotmail in Mail some time ago. And I guess I forgot some setting, because what happend was that ALL my email was transfered from the hotmail server to my local Mail on OSX. How do I transfer them back to the hotmail server, without loosing date stamp?
I am thinking of i.e: 1. Create some pst file (or alike) that can be uploaded to Hotmail. 2. Find some setting that will sync the emails back to hotmail.
