OS X :: Snow Leopard Firewall In Stealth Mode But Responding To Ping Requests?

Apr 19, 2010

I've just tried running the security test on the Shields Up! site, and I note that even though my firewall is in stealth mode (and Shields Up! reported that all the ports it probed were stealthed), it failed the test because it replied to an ICMP ping request - and yet the Snow Leopard firewall specifically states that when it's in stealth mode, it won't respond to such requests.

OS X :: 64bit Mode Snow Leopard - Computer Always Boot Into 64-bit Mode If This Is Done Once?

Aug 28, 2009

I did a bit of reading on the internet, and it looks like most computers will not boot into 32-bit mode by default with 10.6. It appears that if while booting the user holds the 6 and 4 keys, the computer will boot into 64-bit mode.

Does anyone know anything about this? Will the computer always boot into 64-bit mode if this is done once? Will it even make a difference? Will the average user want to do this?

OS X :: 10.6 Stealth Mode On/system Profiler Disagrees?

Sep 4, 2009

So just out of curiosity I was messing around in system profiler tonight and happened on the firewall tab. Never really took a look to see what it said until tonight. I have stealth mode enabled, and have ever since I installed SL but the profiler seems to think otherwise?

OS X :: Snow Leopard Firewall Info In Console?

In Snow Leopard, I'm noticing that I get a lot of these messages in Console now:

They show up as a Info type message in Console. No real problem, just curious if anyone else is seeing that.

MacBook Pro :: After Sleep Mode Computer Sometimes Doesn't Recognize Wireless Connection

Jun 22, 2012

After using my MacBook Pro I close the laptop and it goes to sleep. Later when I return to it and open it, sometimes it can't find the network. The computer is able to see that I have an Apple Network available, but it won't connect.Sometimes when I try to connect, it gives me a timeout. How I fix it is to walk over to the router and unplug it and plug it back in. After I get the green light again, I go to the Apple Network and it works.

OS X :: Snow Leopard Blocks Incoming Connections - Firewall Is Off?

Dec 17, 2009

I got an iPod Touch today and I'm while I was testing out some apps I noticed that I cannot connect to my MacBook Pro.

If I try to ping it I get no response. Going to the Mac's address in a browser (web sharing is on) I don't get any response either. I cannot connect to for file sharing either. I have turned off the firewall in OS X and rebooted the computer with no change. All sharing options are enabled. If I run "sudo ipfw list" I get this: "65535 allow ip from any to any".

It appears however that Snow Leopard allows connection from outside the local network, as Internet, BitTorrent, Mail etc. works as usual.

I've tried turning the firewall off in the router but connections are still blocked.

Applications :: ITunes 9 - Snow Leopard Firewall Ask To Allow / Deny Every Time.

Sep 9, 2009

Just upgraded to iTunes 9.0 and I'm running a clean install of Snow Leopard.

Every time I open up iTunes that stupid Firewall box asks if I want to allow/deny incoming connections.

Even if I allow, and verify it's in the list as allow, it asks everytime.

I've removed it from Firewall settings, no luck.

I've reinstalled iTunes, no luck.

Hardware :: Saucer AEBS Keeps Losing Connection

Jul 9, 2010

I have used my saucer-shaped AEBS for years without a single issue but now in the last month it has started frequently dropping the connection. The network is still seen from may Macbooks, but I can't get to the internet. And Airport Utility will not see the AEBS or the Apple Extreme I use for Airtunes. Power cycling the AEBS brings everything back. It seems to be random but frequent, like once an evening. The only thing different in the past month is that I got a (non-Apple) smartphone that is also on the network, along with my two Macbooks and Apple Extreme. Could that cause this problem somehow? Or can the AEBS just be failing as it ages?

Hardware :: AEBS Bridge Mode / Connect To Ethernet Or WAN?

Jan 21, 2009

I currently have an O2 wireless ADSL2 Modem connected to my AEBS. I've disabled the Wi-Fi signal of the wireless box since its a G router and i'd rather be using the AEBS for its N signals. I'm wondering if i should connect the O2 box to the ethernet port of the AEBS or WAN port whilst in bridge mode? or it doesn't matter?

Since upgrading my MBP 13" to Snow Leopard, I'm having intermittent connection problems with my Airport Extreme Base Station (5ghz band) shared 2TB USB WD MyBook Studio drive.

OS X :: Does AEBS Need To Be Connected To A Computer To Work

Dec 2, 2010

I currently have one router (AEBS) distributing service to over 5 machines at times. Considering buying a new router, and was wondering if this will improve the speed of the internet (also going to upgrade to 50 MB service). I wouldn't have it connected to a computer though, rather kept in my bedroom plugged in. Is this possible or does a router have to be connected to a computer at all times to distribute wifi signal? I understand setting it up initially with a computer, but does it need at all times to work?

OS X :: Switch Snow Leopard To 32 Bit Mode?

May 11, 2010

I'm having some problems with Snow Leopard, in 64 bit mode. Is there a way to turn it to 32 bit ? I'm using a Mac mini 2.53 GHz Core 2 Duo with 4 GB (the max it will ever have), so I don't think it needs 64 bit.

Is there any advantage/disadvantage to run in 32 bit, if you just have 4 GB of ram ?

OS X :: How To Get Sleep Mode In Snow Leopard

Sep 18, 2009

Sleep Mode does not seem to be working automatically in Snow Leopard. It sleeps when activated from the Apple Menu but not when set to sleep in Energy Saver Preference Pane. The screen dims, goes black but the computer does not seem to sleep nor does the hard drive spin down. Anyone else having a problem like this? It was working fine in Leopard (just noticed this problem now, but have had Snow Leopard installed for a couple of weeks and never noticed it)

OS X :: Snow Leopard Slow Performance In 64-bit Mode

Sep 19, 2009

Not sure why, but when I run my SL in 64 bit it runs significantly slow when compared to 32-bit on my umbp late 2008 2.4 ghz, 4gb ram and 500gb hdd. when running on 32-bit, my umbp boots in less than 15 sec and loading the native apps are very snappy and responsive (safari/finder/preview, etc). But when I boot in 64-bit. It takes like 45 sec to boot (it keeps spinning the white circle during the boot up) and even loading safari and rendering the default page will take like couple of secs which is noticeably slow and opening pdf in preview is slow and scrolling the pdf is noticeably slow and sometimes hangs and which does not happen in 32-bit mode.

If I click on application folder on the doc, it opens the folder before I release the mouse button in 32-bit mode, but in 64-bit, it takes upto 5 sec to open the folder. I tried this couple of times including rebooting the umbp. It is not crashing in 64 bit, but it is noticeably slow. Which is making me depressed because I was thinking to upgrade this laptop to 6gb ram. Now I am not sure if i want to upgrade.

Restarted macbook in safe mode (i just pressed shift upon startup and logged in) to correct the resolution for my display settings that were affected earlier today when connecting to an overhead projector. The resolution is back to normal, but now everything is delayed. Moving between windows, opening word, opening an email, is all slow and delayed. This computer has never been this slow.

OS X :: No Internet Connection Via Ethernet On Snow Leopard

Apr 18, 2010

I currently have MacBook 13" and iMac both running on Snow Leopard. I have no problem connecting to the internet via Airport Express wifi but if I have to connect directly to internet from Ethernet port using Ethernet connection I can't connect to it. The Internet and Server lights are showing "amber" in the network diagnostic tool.

The modem is the DLink DSL 302G. I have used to ensure the username and password of the ISP are correct. What I don't get is if it works via Apple's Airport Express router why wouldn't it work with straight Ethernet connection from the modem?

What's the problem here?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Connection Failed When Printing

May 15, 2012

I have a desktop Mac that I used Migration Assistant to transfer my user setting etc. prior to selling my MacBook. All works well, except that everytime I try to print a document it pauses while looking for a shared network volume for a while before coming back saying "Connection Failed to MacBook". I deleted all printers and resent printers from preferences to add them back manually and repaired permissions however the problem is still happening everytime I try to print a document. Its as though its looking for the old MacBook.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Can't Find Any Way To Break Connection

I have a Macbook Pro, just for home use. I noticed this 'Shared' access in Finder recently. It could have appeared after linking a new GPS device I got via a USB cable although it still appears without this being connected and after re-booting.I'm concerned over the security of my machine - does it mean someone has access to my Macbook Pro? I can't find any way to break the connection.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: After Going On 'single-user Mode' It Won't Turn On

Mar 6, 2012

I got a Macbook with OS X. I was too impatient to get the administrator name and password from the previous owner (BIG MISTAKE).I thought I'd follow the instructions from "How To Create A New Administrator Account" (url..) as they seemed easy and straight forward.

I followed the first step of the process and got into single-user mode (black screen white text).I saw that black screen with white text and thought, "Woah man, I'm out my my depth. My brother typed 'help' in order to find out how to exit single-user mode, he said that's how it's done on windows? (I also have limited knowledge about Windows). I typed in various things such as 'reboot' in an attempt to exit. Eventually the battery died. I turned the Macbook back on and the grey screen with the apple logo with the spinning wheel appeared. The spinning wheel span and span but the computer will not start up.
