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 V10.7 Lion :: Unable To Login To FileVault-protected User Account After Network Migration From 10.6?

Jun 29, 2012

I just used Migration Assistant to move my files from my iMac to my new Macbook Pro. I didn't know about the Filevault problem so when I tried logging in, I got the error message and I am unable to login to my account (the only one on the computer). The support page says to make a root user, but how can I do that when I can't even log in to my account. I dont have a disc copy of Lion I can use to start up with, only a copy of 10.6.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Set Login Policies For Network Users On A 2008 Mac Pro Running 10.7.3?

Feb 10, 2012

I am trying to set login policies for network users on a 2008 Mac Pro running 10.7.3 and failing miserably.  Let me start by saying that I am doing this successfully with 6 other laptops and another Mac Pro (2011 version) with absolutley zero issues. However no matter what I do I cannot seem to get this 2008 Mac Pro to work. The system in question is connected via WiFI (as are some of the other systems). I am using the mac address of the WiFI (as I am on the other systems) and have tried managing this system individually and in a group each of which fail.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Network Users Can't Login Via VPN And Profile Manager

Apr 7, 2012

I have a problem with Network Users defined on my Lion Server accessing the server through VPN or Profile Manager (via Safari) ... I keep on getting authentication errors. Is this because they are network users or am I missing something else?

This works: when I logon to my Lion Server with either local or network users everything seems to be OK including home directory synchronisation.

I tried the following for VPN:my local server account can logon to the server (ie my secret key, user account/password combination are OK ("chap peer authentication succeeded for ...")when I try the same with two of my network accounts I keep on getting authentication errors (VPN) but I'm sure I use the same userid/password combinations as above ("chap peer authentication failed for ...")

I get similar results when I access the Profile Manager (url..)my local server account can logon on to the Profile Manager and sees as all the informationwhen I try this with one of my network accounts (which has devices assigned) I keep on getting 'incorrect user name or password

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.

OS X :: 2 Macs, Same Network, Only One Can Connect?

Oct 21, 2010

I have two macs and strangely one mac is unable to connect to the internet via airport while the other one can via airport. What gives?What I'm observing is that when I open up Network Preferences in both macs, the Airport says its connected on the working one while it says no IP Address on the one that's not working.

However, when I change locations so that both macs have the same locations, the one that's not working says, Self-Assigned IP, yet, still no connection.One more thing, I also notice that in advanced settings under TCP/IP, both macs have two different IPv4's.

OS X :: Network Macs Show Up Twice

So my network is now exclusively Mac, yet in the sidebar in the Finder all my network Macs show up twice, but the 2nd one always has the BSOD icon. The MyBookWorld is my NAS drive that always shows up as a windows server because it has to connect via SMB. Anyone have any idea how to get my Macs to show up only once though? Besides it looks ugly with all those BSODs on the side,

OS X :: Network Chat Across Two Macs

Mar 23, 2009

I guess the answer to this might be iChat, but I've got two iMacs on my home network. My wife and I work on them, usually at the same time, and it would be great if we could just open a quick chat window to swap small files, links and bits of text back and forth as we work. At the moment we use the Finder and copy, paste, drag, etc. But there must be a quicker way. Back in the olde days there used to be a network message thing you could use. I guess iChat would be easiest if we both set up a login each and keep it running in the background?

OS X :: Getting Two Macs On Wireless Network

Jun 2, 2009

I am using a dsl wireless router to create a home network (damned if im gonna pay 2 bills for a japanese cable router) every time I connect, the internet service provider intercepts my link and forces me to log in, when I try to log in on another computer it does the same thing, but I can only log in one computer at a time on the same user id.

Is there a way to split the connection from my wireless router to each mac without the service provider recognizing it is two separate machines? This is legit, if I shell out the 2 bills for their wireless router I can log two machines in, so its not like im stealing service here, just trying to get my wife and I on at the same time without having to buy new hardware that is redundant.

Software :: Cannot Network One Of Two Macs

Jun 14, 2009

I have a MacBook (Intel 1.83 GHz Core 2 Duo) and an iMac (2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo) and I can access the entire MacBook's file structure when I access it via the finder's "connect as" feature. I could do the same thing when I connected with the MacBook to the iMac, but a couple months ago I stopped being able to do this. One notable difference is, when I click the "connect as" button on the iMac I get a dialogue box that lets me enter the username and password. On the MacBook, I get no such dialogue - the finder simply tries to connect (spinning wheel in the bottom of the finder window, "connecting..." displays above the button) but it never seems to time out or stop. I have checked the sharing configuration on both machines, and they seem identical - I can't find a single setting that is causing the disparity and therefore the one-sided connection problem.

After quite a few searches online, I also found some advice that suggested I delete old keys related to this in my Keychain and use the Keychain Manager to repair all the existing ones. I did this, re-started the machine, and still no joy. All permissions have been repaired since I did this - no difference. While I suspect this is a system issue, I doubt it - the system has been re-installed completely off the same disc as the iMac, and is running the same latest revision of 10.5 as the MacBook. There seems to be no real difference - and as you can see from this email, I can connect to the internet on the same network, and have no other problems - I can even Screen Share with the iMac (which seems stupid, as it lets me completely control the iMac from the MacBook, but I can't access the files directly and run them in the MacBook.

OS X :: How Do I Share Between Two Macs On The Same Wireless Network?

Mar 4, 2009

This is probably very basic but I don't know how to do it.I have an iMac (2007) running Leopard. I have an iBook (2004) running Tiger. They both share my home wireless network.

How can I best share documents between them? Eg how can I browse the hard drive of each machine from the other- ideally without entering passwords etc every time?

Additionally, the iMac is connected to the printer (because it is also a scanner); can the iBook share the printer too?

OS X :: Shared Printer Not Visible To 3 Macs On Network

Nov 3, 2008

I have my Mac Pro connected to my hp c3100 printer. It is shared, all sharing options are enabled on the Mac Pro. 2 Macbooks and an iMac cannot find or see this printer. Networking, screensharing, file transfers, they all work fine. Just can't see the printer. Is AppleTalk required to do this? Here's some screenshots from the Mac Pro. I have never tried to network a printer in Leopard, I seem to remember it was easier in Tiger.

OS X :: Syncing Two Macs Via A Network Drive With A Different Filesystem?

May 13, 2010

I've been looking at how to sync my two Macs.

There are lots of options out there but none I'm comfortable with:
DropBox. It appears that what people do is put their data files into the DropBox folder locally (or make symbolic links to that folder) and DropBox then monitors this folder locally, if changes are made it propogates the changes to their server and then out to other machines/devices under your account.

I could be wrong and it monitors both local and server.

Anyhow the trouble I have is that I've got tens of gigs and I don't see why I should ever have to take the bandwidth/time/security hit of using the Internet as the go-between.

Plus I'm uncomfortable with DropBox acting as a blackbox; i.e. no idea the logic it's using to determine changes, determine conflicts or manage resolution.

JungleDisk/BackBlaze with Chronosync. Using Chronosync means that you have full control and transparency, i.e. know logic and have logs.

I was going to put aside my concerns of using cloud storage (bandwidth/accessibility/security), however JungleDisk just purged around 60 gig of my data because a 2USD invoice failed to process and I was completely unaware of the invoice processing failure. So for now, cloud storage is out.

(if I do go to cloud, I'll try BackBlaze next time as JungleDisk clearly can't be trusted)
Sync over LAN between two Macs (e.g. via Bonjour) and use Chronosync to perform the sync.

Not a bad setup, but I've got the feeling that placing a third disk in between, is somehow cleaner and gives overall better protection.

Therefore I've decided to keep two Macs in sync, to use Chronosync plus a NAS (in my case a QNAP 639-pro) as the middle man.

Others must have done a similar setup (after all it's just a variation on using an external drive as the middle ground).

So some preliminary questions are:

do I need to be concerned that the NAS uses EXT3 (Linux) fielsystem; i.e. will ownership/group permissions or

extended file attributes be an issue?

Is there an issue with not syncing file metadata (.ds_store files comes to mind)?

Syncs take a very long time when you've got tens of gigs, however often it's just a handful of files changing, i.e. OmniFocus, Devonthink, 1Password plus a few active project files. So it seems it's a good idea to have a full sync and some quick sync.

Do people have a similar setup and can describe their Chronosync configs?

It would appear the safest option is to close down 1password, OmniFocus etc. on one machine before hitting sync on that machine, but this introduces overhead, but I guess it depends on how the likes of 1Password writes to file and when

Hardware :: Transferring Files Between Macs On Wireless Network?

Feb 25, 2008

I need a little help with transferring files between my MacBook and my iMac on my wireless network. I'm using an AEBS (the newest one, just got it last week) and both computers connect to it through their AirPort cards. After fooling with my router for about 30 minutes after I got it I was finally able to connect to the internet, and after about 6 more hours I was able to wirelessly print so yea, I am pretty much a noob when it comes to wireless networking.

So my question now is, what is the easiest way to transfer files between my two Macs on my wireless network? I've tried copying files into my "Public" folder on one Mac and then accessing it on the other and that works fine sometimes but it's too time consuming and file permissions are killing me! Do I have to set the permissions on each individual file or folder so that all users can read and write to them when I transfer them? And better yet, can one Mac ONLY access the files in the "Public" folder of another?

OS X :: Copy Dual Layer DVD Via Network Cable And 2 Macs?

Dec 10, 2009

I've got a handful of dual layer DVDs of which I'd like 1 copy of each.

To save time I wondered if I could plug my machine to my mate's machine via a network cable, with the original DVD in one mac, a blank in the other, and just hit 'Copy' in Toast?

AFAIK the write machine can only do 8 speed - would the data throughput via the network cable be fast enough for this?

If not, any way of doing it via Firewire?

OS X :: File Transfer Between Macs / Set Up Network Connection With No Password Protection?

Jun 22, 2009

Gah, internet is messing up, logged me out I have to rewrite my whole long message....when transferring between my new MBP and ibook G4 on 1st startup.... it asked me to connect by firewire. Idon't have a firewire that has 1 side the new firewire connector and the other side old (I didn't even know that the shape of the firewire had changed). I tried to do it wirelessly and it said it was going to take 106 hours so I stopped it to use my computer.

Now I am trying to transfer again. I don't have a firewire cable that will work. I have an ethernet, but when I try to connect to my computer server (through ethernet or wirelessly) it says that I don't have sufficient privileges. My password (which I am sure is correct) DOES NOT WORK and I don't know why. I tried to disable all security so I can get in with no password, but nothing I do is working.

Any ideas?How can I transfer my files? How can I get back to that transfer wirelessly screen that occurred at start up? Migration Assistant only gives me a firewire option. Is there a firewire that will connect between old and new firewire models???

How do I set up a network connection with no password protection? (Or why isn't my password working?)

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?
