OS X :: Unable To Login To Network / Login Disabled And Connection Failed

Apr 15, 2010

G4 MDD networked with Mini for approx. 3 years now via a LinkSys BEFSR41 wired router. Ethernet cables are CAT6's with gold-plated ends. Did an erase/install (+ updates) of Panther on G4. ISP is Comcast Cable. Just upgraded my Motorola modem from Surfboard 5100 to SB 5101 yesterday. My network settings are ok...file sharing is turned on...I can ping each 'puter from the other (showing my connection is good).

I have internet access (showing that the router is still good according to Cisco). Now, however, I can't even bring up the window on the G4 asking for my pw....all I get is connection failed, no response from the server. From the Mini, I get Unknown User, incorrect password or login is disabled. I haven't a clue what the problem can be. Everything I do daily depends upon the network connection.

Applications :: Unable To Login Msn / No Network Connection

Jul 30, 2010

I bought a new iMac 24" about a month ago. It runs Mac OS X Snow Leopard (all up to date). So I used Microsoft Messenger for Mac from the first day I bought it. Yesterday I installed Adium. So everything went well yesterday. When I went to sleep, I closed all apps from the background (Command + Q),And put the iMac on sleep.

Today I tried to use Adium and it won't log-in. It says sometimes "Retreiving buddy list" or some problems with the network (of the MSN). I tried to used Microsoft Messenger for Mac and it says something like "Service not responding or no network connection"..I HAVE FULL NETWORK CONNECTION (Plug-in straight to the router) I tried already reinstall everything, reset the router, reset the computer, Changing the port of Adium to 80 (I brought it back to default later)..I also installed OniX and clean the data with it, it still have this problem. I've done everything I can to solve it, but I still can't figure it out.

OS X :: Unable To Connect To Local Wireless Network / Gets Connection Failed

Aug 9, 2009

I have five Macs in the house, all of which can see each other on the local wireless network...but...for some weird reason, none but when they try to connect, I get �Connection Failed� after several minutes of silence.

When I click �Connect As...� in hopes of getting a login screen, nothing happens at all. Nada. Zilch. Zip.

The sharing settings on the MacBook are identical to the ones on the other five. Of course, the MacBook can connect the other direction to everyone, including my brand spankin� new MBP.

Any clues, oh wise ones? I�m stumped. What is it about getting into a simple MacBook that has two G4s and two MBPs scratching their heads?

OS X :: Unable To Auto-login To Guest Account / Safari Wants To Use Keychain Login

Jan 6, 2009

I work for a company that has several Macs available for customers' use. These are basically demo-machines that they can play with, and at the end of each day, the machines are wiped and rebooted.

The way we do this is simple: the machines auto-login to the Guest account, which will wipe the account at the end of the day. Well, getting a few new Macs in this week, I simply copied over the entire Guest user account to the new machines to avoid reloading all the demo content, preferences, etc. And truthfully, the machines have been working great.

Except one thing. The computer keeps giving me that annoying message that says "Safari (or Finder, or System Preferences, or anything!) wants to use keychain 'login'". And asks for the login keychain password. Well here's the thing: the Guest accounts don't have passwords!

So I looked up a little bit on this topic, and did things like... Went to "Keychain List" in the Edit menu of Keychain Access, and deleted both the "login" and "system" keychains. No help. I went to Preferences in Keychain Access and said "Reset My Keychain". When doing this, however, it asks for the new password for the login keychain.

The problem with this is that I cannot leave the field blank! The Guest account doesn't have a password, so how am I supposed to not create a password?

PowerPC :: Unable To Login / Freeze After Login

Jul 28, 2008

I have an iMac G5 1.8Ghz and Today when I logged in, it just froze on the apple OS X background. I waited 2 minutes, and nothing happened. It was weird because it's the first time it happened. Anyway, I turned the iMac off and re-tried. It did the exact same thing. So I turned it off, unplugged everything, waited around a minute, plugged it all back in, and it worked fine.

But yeah, just trying to work out why it would do that... because this is going to my brother and I don't want it to just crash when I give it to him.

Mac Mini :: Unable To Send Email To Accounts - "Connection And Login To Server Succeeded"

Jun 30, 2012

Why does my mac mini now refuses to send out email, to any of my accounts? It was working. Works on my power pc, works on my iPad. Works when I use my old eudora mail program. Just doesn't work on the mac mini using the Apple Mail program. The mail system error message says the the "sender address rejected by server.".  Results of clicking on "connection doctor" in error message gives all "green" status on all addresses and smtp.west.cox.net. Status message says, "Connection and login to server succeeded". In summery.  everything looks fine but still will not send out messages.   I've tried restarting system. No luck. Tried taking accounts offline then online.  Doesn't help. I've only concluded that the problem is in the Apple Mail program on the mac mini.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Login Failed After Changing Mount Point

Jun 23, 2012

I had two hard drives, "Macintosh SSD" (primary) and "Macintosh HD"(secondary). I put my home directory into "Macintosh HD", and it works fine.However, last night i mistakenly rename the "Macintosh HD" to "MacintoshHD" through the finder's "get info". Now I cannot log in!I believe it's the problem of the changed name of mount point.

My previous home located at /Volumes/Macintosh HD/Users/myname Now, it locates at /Volumes/MacintoshHD/User/myname, thus it refuses to login.I don't know how to change it back through single user mode...

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Network - Can't Login To Network Macs As Registered User

Feb 20, 2012

Have recently done a clean install of Lion onto a Mac Pro that was running Snow Leopard. Upgradede to 10.7.3  The Lion Mac sits on an office network of several macs running Snow Leopard and a Network Shared HDD.  In order to gain quick full access to the other computers we have been using "connect as" then inputting the macs registerred user administrator details, we were able us access to the full Mac and it's currently mounted hard drives. Since installing Lion I can see and fully access the network share which only uses guest access, see the Other macs in finder, add to their drop boxes but not connect as a registerred user to access one of the snow Leopard machines.  I get a pop up. Spinning wheel, and eventually a timeout. Can't even cancel this action as it comes up greyed out. Oddly the other macs can still log into the Lion machine. No joy so far toggling network preferrences and I'm pretty sure it's going to be a setting I have missed, So far have had not joy looking online or playing in seeing why it would now not be able to connect as before.

OS X :: Connection Failed When Accessing MPB Over Network

Jan 30, 2008

I'm working on a friend's MPB and when ever I try to connect to it from mine (I created the network from my MPB which is almost identical to his), His MPB shows up in finder, but it always says "Connecting..." and then "Connection Failed". Sharing is enabled on his MPB and the firewall is disabled. I have been through everything that I can think of to try and fix this, short of re-installing Leopard. His MBP came with Leopard pre-installed, so there is no need to worry about the upgrade messing things up. I have checked from a MacBook and that one cannot connect either, but both connect to mine with no problems.

OS X Mavericks :: Use Wireless To Login To AD Domain At Login

Jun 25, 2014

OS X Maverick (10.9.3)..I have an iMac I need to have the user at the login window, log into AD.  The iMac does not have an operable ethernet port.  I suspect the iMac is old enough, the thunderbolt port is video only, since a known working thunderbolt to ethernet adapter did not connect (I think the iMac is Mid 2011 and I suspect the iMac is out of warranty).  Wireless works fine, and I have made the iMac a member of the domain using the private network, after logging in locally. I cannot create the user's mobile account, because I need to have the iMac use wireless at login, connecting to the private network, at login.   

Is there a way to have the login process use wireless to initiate the login for the mobile account and creation of said account?I know there is a way to do this under Windows, just hope there is a way under OS X.

OS X :: 10.5.5 Woes. Network Account Login Failures?

Sep 24, 2008

So i decided to update my machine to 10.5.5 before I pushed this out to everyone. The main problem i've seen so far is with a failed login using a mobile account that is bound to active directory.

My machine is currently bound to AD and i have a mobile account. When I start up the machine and attempt to login with my AD account, it fails. The only time the login works is when i unplug the machine from the network and log in. Everything in directory utility shows green light that i'm still bound to AD. At the login screen, I also have a green light saying network accounts are available as well. The only accounts that work are local accounts.

Anyone else experiencing this and what have you done to cure it?
