OS X :: How To Connect Ith A Windows DMZ Server

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).

Server V10.5 Leopard :: Couldn't Ping - Can't Connect Windows Xp Client To Connect
I have a new OS X server updated to 10.5.7. We are using a Airport Extreme (with the new 7.4.2 firmware) as the router and have "enabled default host at:" to the server IP address. Setup VPN both L2TP and PPTP. The firewall on the server is on but I have the same issue if it is off or on. I can make the L2TP connection and then I can access the server via AFP as well as ping the server at the IP address, it all works just like it should. If I make the PPTP connection (from my mac) I am connected but I can not ping the server IP address, nothing on in the network is reachable. If I restart the the Airprort I might be able to ping the server for a few minutes but then eventually it stops. Note: when I had the 7.4.1 firmware restarting the Airport made no difference I could not ping the server, after the upgrade I thought my problems were fixed after the restart but once a windows XP client connected and tried to connect to the sever share, I was again unable to ping the server. Windows behavior: After restarting the Airport The windows client makes the PPTP VPN connection with out issue. I can even ping the servers IP, but then when I try to connect to the server share via \ it seems to make the server unreachable, and then pings won't respond. If I have a mac PPTP connection at the same time as the windows VPN I can ping the server until the attempt to get to the server share from window then the mac will not be able to ping the server.

I have got to get the PPTP working, for the windows XP users, thinking of downgrading firmware to 7.3.2 and seeing if that makes a difference. L2TP works great just can't get the windows xp clients to connect using the standard Microsoft client, if any one knows of a free client for windows would like to try it.

Applications :: Looking To Connect To A Windows Based Media Server?
I'm trying to turn an old Windows machine into a media server and file server, but not sure which Windows apps are Mac compatible. This is sort of hit and miss to post here, as it mainly involves looking for Windows applications, but the mac would be using them so it's sort of suitable.

I have setup a DLNA server for PS3 already which is working correctly. I've setup a UPNP server called Air Video for use with media for the iPhone and iPad.

I tried to setup an FTP server for use with files from both machines but the mac would not connect to it. It kept saying the login was wrong but it was right. I also setup a VNC server which the iphone using iTeleport could connect to but the Mac just would not connect.

So the main question is: Is there a FTP and VNC server for Windows which works 100% with a Mac as the client? After these two are working the server is completed.

I connect to a Windows network. We recently upgraded to a Windows Small Business Server 2011 server from a Windows SBS 2003. Previously I had been able to connect and view all files. I am no longer able to. I can see the server, but whenever I try to log in, it says that I have the wrong name or password. I have tried many different combinations of the domain as per my network admin. How can I connect? Is there something different I have to do.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Windows Clients Connect To SLS
I'm very new to the OS X server. and I'm sure this question is answered before, however I am unable to locate it. Is it possible to serve Windows clients as well as Mac clients from a Mac server? I have been tasked with planning a Mac Lab for a local school and I'm trying to decide if the Mac server will work for all my needs. The school wants to be able to allow the students to log onto any computer in the school using the same credentials.

Intel Mac :: Cannot Connect To Windows Home Server 2011 Shares
I am having difficulties connecting from iMac to Windows Home Server 2011 shares.†First of all it takes so long time to discover the share in iMac, which it's called "mediaserver". After finding it I cannot connect and gives "Connection Failed: message. If I choose "Connect As.." option I wait some time and then pops out with an error:

"There was a problem connecting to the server "mediaserver". 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."

If I try from Finder -> Go -> Connect to Server ... write in Server Address : smb://mediaserver it fails. But if I write the IP address, like: smb:// it works after couple of tries. If I try now to Make an Alias for the share I get "The operation can't be completed. An unexpected error occurred (error code -8060)."†I have updated to Mac OS X version 10.7.3.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Windows Users Cannot Connect To SMB Service
I have two Lion 10.7.3 servers joined to my company's AD. These servers provide SMB/AFP file services to users. They have been working successfully until a week ago when a change in AD was made. Now Windows (7 or XP, doesn't matter) clients cannot connect to the server using the DNS name, only the IP address. Mac OS X clients are not affected by this, i.e. they can use the DNS name fine. All clients are on AD too.†What I observe from a Windows 7 client is, I open Windows Explorer, type \xserver in the address bar, hit enter, & it denies my connection immediately. If I do the same thing with the IP address (\, it lets me in immediately.

For Windows clients, I have tried both the short DNS name as well as the FQDN, & neither work. The DNS name on the server itself is fine, verified by "changeip -checkhostname". Whatever changed in AD caused the Lion servers to start doing this because they both started exhibiting this behavior at the same time.†The only info I've been able to get regarding what changed in AD from the domain admins was "We changed the UPN to", in other words, to their email address. In the system logs, here's an attempt to connect from a Windows client using the short DNS name:

Feb 20 09:24:39 xserver rpcsvchost[32619]: sandbox_init: succeeded
Feb 20 09:24:39 xserver sandboxd[32620] ([32619]): rpcsvchost(32619) deny file-read-metadata /Library/Managed Preferences
Feb 20 09:24:39 xserver sandboxd[32620] ([32619]): rpcsvchost(32619) deny file-read-metadata /private/var/root
Feb 20 09:24:39: --- last message repeated 3 times ---
[Log] .....

Why only the DNS name doesn't work.

MacBook Pro :: OS X Lion 10.7.4 Will Not Connect To Windows 2k3 Server With AFP Protocall?
I am having issues commecting my late 2011 model MacBook Pro to a Windows 2003 server on my internal network using the AFP protocall. I am able to connect to the server using SMB however. I have a am running Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4 operating system and the server can be found and pinged but when I try and connect to it using AFP I get the error: There was a problem connecting to the server "<my server ip address here>" The server may not exist or is unavailable at this time. Check the server name or IP address, check your network connection and then try again. 

On this network my roomate also has a late 2011 model MacBook Pro which is able to connect to the server no problem using both protocalls. He has completely disconnected his computer from the server to double check there was not at overload of traffic on the afp. The only difference in his machine vs mine is that he is running Mac OS X 10.7.2 which is pretty close in versioning.

Snow Leopard :: Connect To Server Using Port Forwarding And Vnc Viewer On Any Windows Machine
We have a server in the main campus and and I usually connect to that server using port forwarding and vnc viewer on any windows machine. Server is running some unix version. I bought my first mac machine couple of weeks ago and now I am having a big big problem. I tried using same in my mac. I first opened port using ssh -L 59000:localhost:5908 username@servername.ece.****.edu after that I went to finder and using commad-K short tried to connect to local host at port number 59000. It worked only for the very very first time and never worked afterwords. Now whenever I do this, it never complains but the screen sharing window opens and becomes white. It remains white forever.

Snow Leopard :: Apple Machines Not Able To Connect To Our Windows Server 2008 Box / Fix It?
I just recently moved over our file server data from a Windows 2003 box to 2008. Everyone can connect to it just fine except for our apple machines.

The machines connect using server finder (connect to server) that's builtin. It's able to connect to all of our servers except the new file server which sits on Server 2008.

The only way it's able to connect to the new server is by using Command K and entering smb:/IPADDRESS.

At first I thought it was a DNS issue but it's able to ping the server by host name just fine.

I understand that this may be a server issue. But if anyone can provide any insight

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Can't Connect To OS X Server 10.6.4 Using AFP - But Can Via SMB
OK, I'm stumped. This is a brand new Mini server running OS X Server 10.6.4. I can connect from 10.5 and 10.6 clients using SMB but not AFP. Access to all services is set to 'Allowed' so it's not a service restriction.

Server has good DNS resolution for itself. This happened using OD and then I demoted it to Standalone to see if that would make any difference. None. Rebooted several times.

The AFP logs show this when a user tries to connect:
IP - - 29/Jul/2010:22:24:28 -0500 "Login adam" 0 0 0
IP - - 29/Jul/2010:22:24:30 -0500 "Logout adam" 0 0 0

But on the client side you get a dialog "There was an error connecting to the server. Check your connections and try again."

Possibly related to this, not all folders show up in the share when connected via SMB. All folders are there when viewed on the server though. Have forced share permissions down the tree several times..

Never seen this happen before in many years of OS X Server work.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Cannot Connect To VPN Service Unless Server Is Locally Logged Into
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?

OS X Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Server Admin Cannot Connect
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.

OS X Tiger :: Connect To Server / Browse Server - Not Working
I have a few Macs and also a Windows computer on my home network. In the past I could use the "Connect to Server" menu item, and then Browse for servers, finding the one I want to connect to.

For some reason, Browse does not come up with any online computers - even though they are online. Knowing the ip's of the systems, I can directly use afp:// or smb:// addresses directly and mount the volumes I am interested in.

I am wondering what might have changed, or perhaps others have experienced this before and can point to what I should look for.

OS X Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot Connect To Server
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  

Recent log activity shows:

Apr 29 11:38:49 xxxxxx-corp org.apache.httpd[47667]: Syntax error on line 13 of /etc/apache2/proxy_sites/0000_any_8443_localhost.conf:

Apr 29 11:38:49 xxxxxx-corp[1] (org.apache.httpd[47667]): Exited with exit code: 1

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.
