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).
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 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.
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 have a windows server 2008 machine that is using NFS and I'm trying to get my tiger machine 10.4.11 to connect to it but with no such luck. Anyone else have any experience with this? I want to use it for crossplatform sharing but this isn't showing much promise with that..
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 (\10.0.1.10), 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 email@example.com to Firstname.Lastname@example.com", 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:

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.¬†
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://192.168.1.42 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.
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 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.
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.
I have a Snow leopard server with a folder shared Via SMB for the 2 PC's we have, all the macs can read and write to this folder OK. About once a week the 2 pc's take 10 mins to start and then cannot connect to the share.¬† Web/email and sharing betwen them still works.¬† I can ping the server from both.¬† I've turned off the smb and restarted it. Also tried restarting the Xserve. This still has no effect. All internal firewalls are off.¬†I've tried guest access.
I will be setting up Mac Server to support Mac Users in our environment. We have the Windows DNS Server and I would like to know How could I setup my WIndoes DNS Server to support Mac Server that will run Open Directory.
I Have setuped Windows 2008 Server and Windows 2003 Server. On both is full working Active Directory. The clients can conect to it (win).I would lice to have some Mac clients and will setuped Lion server an in Open Directory I have set to connect to another server. Then in Directory Utility I will set the connection to AD Server over Connect in File menu and I have only error mesage "Can't connect to the server - Directory Services may not be installed on the remote server, they may be turned off, or the URL may have been entered incorrectly." and then I try the connection over Services - Active Directory and have error mesage "Authentication server could not be contacted." too.
I'm trying to do something fairly simple ‚ÄĒ 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
I'm considering adding another Windows Server to our network (Windows 2008 Server); however, I like the fact that OS-X Server has Spotlight Server and a Wiki, but I heard that OS-X Server may have some serious problems and glitches especially with SMB or file-sharing for Windows. I'll be using this server for our graphics production department which is a mix of OS-X and Windows XP workstations, and I'll be adding to it a multi Terabyte rackmount Raid-drive.Can anyone who is in the advanced Server know-how share some advice to weather I should continue with Windows Server or switch to OS-X Server and why so?
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?
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.
I've recently bought a macbook and I love it, but am trying to connect to my outlook server and having a few problems. Firstly I can't access OWA through Safari at all, every time I type it in it says 'Safari can't find the server' - it is sbs2003, and this works fine in IE Ideally I wanted to set up access through Mail or Entourage (2008) however I've read that it is not possible to connect to exchange through this. Frustrating as I have just bought this and have a free upgrade to 2011 but only home and student so apparently this won't have outlook on here either. I have been trying to connect for days and I just can't figure out the best way to get to my emails? if you could point me in the direction of a good walkthrough that would be great.
I have a MacBook Air that I set up to connect to a shared drive on our university's network. I'm able to connect to it manually just fine after I've logged in, but I keep getting the following error every time I login: "Connection Failed: The server may not exist or it is not operational at this time. Check the server name or IP address and your network connection and try again."
Along with this comes a "?" in my dock, indicating the "share" drive cannot be found. I'm assuming I've pointed Leopard to an incorrect alias or something while I was figuring out how to connect to the share drive. How do I remove this instruction so the error message will just leave me alone?
