OS X V10.7 Lion :: Updated But Now HDD Sharing With Windows 7 Is Not Working?

Jun 26, 2012

I recently upgraded to Lion (desktop not server) and now my HDD sharing with Windows 7 is not working like it used to. If I boot back in to Snow Leopard (diferent HDD) it's all working fine.  My windows 7 PCs can access my shared Mac Pro RAID no problem. If I boot in to Lion they can 'sometimes' connect but mostly not.  To get them to connect I seem to have to use the IP address instead of the system name (\MACPROLIONRaid) like I used to with SL.Nothing changed on the Windows 7 system at all, other than now I get the infuriating dialog tellmy my password is incorrect.Some unknown sequence of rebooting one or both machines, sometimes multiple times, will let me access the mac, but I have no idea what's going on here.

Windows On Mac :: Internet Connection Sharing On Vista Stopped Working?

Dec 3, 2009

I'm trying to share the internet connection on my windows vista partition. Until now it has been fine, but all of a sudden, yesterday, it stopped working. iPhone and mac both show self assigned IPs. I tried resetting and setting up a new ad hoc network and checked settings to make sure internet sharing was enabled, but still the mac and iPhone are not given their own IPs.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: File Sharing Not Working Between IMac And G5

Mar 26, 2012

I have an IMac running 10.7 and G5 running 10.5.8 the G5 we are using as an in house server. It working fine for 5 months then our internet went down and now it no longer works. This is how I have it set up. on the g5 I have file sharing turned on and the folder I would like to share set to share. Then I made logins for for the computer I want to share the folder with. The on the IMac I would go to connect to server and the g5 would show up then it would ask me to login so I did. Everthing worked fine but now when I try to login it just gives me the spinning wheel but never logs in why is it doing this? I have restarted both computers and I have deleted my login and re added it. But still the same thing.

ITunes :: Sharing With Windows 7 PC And MacBook Pro With Lion

Mar 20, 2012

At the moment I have my iTunes on my Windows 7 PC but as I a have just got a Macbook Pro (with Lion) I would like to be able to share iTunes between them without both having to be turned on as at present. 

I have a copy of iTunes on my ReadyNAS Duo which works ok for my WDTV Live to my TV but does not give me the full selection of views ie no Grid View or Cover Flow View.  

I was thinking about putting my iTunes onto my Time Capsule, which I belive my Macbook Pro should see ok via WiFi, would my Windows 7 PC be able to access the Time Capsule to share the iTunes content, as it is connected to the Time Capsule via ethernet (for Internet connection to my cable modem) 

Is there a better way of doing this 

I realise that using the Time Capsule for iTunes means it would not be backed up but i already have copies of iTunes

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Sharing A Mac Printer To Windows 7 Via LPR Does Not Work

Apr 6, 2012

I had read an article explaining how to configure a Windows 7 PC to print to a shared Mac printer (in Snow Leopard, but I assume it's the same in Lion). 

So I shared the printer (an IP printer) on my Mac, then followed the instructions to add LPR Printing to Windows 7. I went to and saw the CUPS page on my Mac, and the setup the LPR port on Windows 7 with the IP address of my Mac and the Queue name listed for the shared printer in CUPS.  Unfortunately, when I enter the port info and click OK, it comes back with the error page listed in the article. 

I've tried this on two different iMac's (a new 27" and a much older iMac with Snow Leopard).  I also used three different Windows laptops (Windows 7 and Vista), and all three gave the same error. Basically, when I setup the LPR port, it cannot "talk" and confirm the settings with the Mac. 

I've turned off Windows Firewall, tried basically everything I can think of (and I'm a tech, so I've tried a lot!).  Anyone successfully printed to a shared Mac printer from a Windows 7/Vista PC?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Computer Id In File Sharing Is The Old One Before Joined Windows Domain?

May 24, 2012

I just installed Lion 10.7.4 named my computer "fx6800". Then I joined my Windows 2003 Server domain with no problems. After that I could not log on to domain with one of my windows 7 machines because it had the same computer ID. Ok no problem I re joined the domain and re binded with the Win 7 machine and then un binded my Mac Lion machine then re-binded with a different computer ID. No problem both machines can log on to AD with separate computer accounts. Then I notice when I opened terminal it was showing the old computer ID. No problem I fixed it With sudo scutil --set HostName "new host name".  

Then when I go to select file sharing in the description to the right under File Sharing On: it shows the path to tha machine is fx6800.domainname.local which is the original computer ID. Also when I select remote login and I believe it shows username@fx6800.domainname.local. I have searched for 2 days and have not come up with anything. I am sure if I reinstall everything it should fix it but I would like to save the time.

What I mean is that the link will open the browser (which ever one is set as default,) but the browser opens to the home page instead of going to the page specified by the link in the email. it is not because I haven't set a default browser.

OS X Mavericks :: Updated Epson Stylus Photo R3000 Printer Drivers But Now Its Not Working

Aug 25, 2014

After the last software update my printer wasn't recognizing ink cartridge. So I uninstalled its software. Now I can't find its drivers anywhere. Epson's website says check your Mac software updates and doesn't offer to download the driver directly. But there are no available updates for my computer as of now. How do I find and install the driver?

OS X :: Updated BootCamp Now Mac Start Into Windows By Default

Sep 9, 2009

Did some software updates to the Windows side of the Mac via Bootcamp the other day and now whenever my backup drive is plugged in to my computer (always is) the Mac will boot into Windows by default. I checked the startup disk and reset them back to Mac, but it doesn't matter. If the drive is connected it will now always boot in to windows by default. If I unplug the drive and start up the machine it goes in to Mac just fine. Not exactly sure wtf happened.

Windows On Mac :: Using Best Virus Protection/fully Updated?

Jul 13, 2010

I will mostly use it for PSD, Final Cut, Logic, Entourage and iTunes.

However, I am also planning to use Fusion/Parallels to run, exclusively, Microsoft Excel, PP, Word and Acrobat. I will NOT use the Internet or play games while in Windows mode. Does the following setup reasonably protect my mac from viruses?

1. Bootcamp
2. Fusion/Parallels
3. Install anti-virus software on Microsoft side
3. Do not operate Outlook or Internet on PC side
4. Receive all e-mails on Mac (Entourage or G-mail)

OS X :: How To Get Internet Sharing Working

Jul 21, 2009

I can't seem to get internet sharing working on my mac after installing a new router. I want to share my airport connection with my ethernet port so I can get on the internet with my Windows 7 test desktop that doesn't have wireless capabilities.

I used to have a DLink DI-614+ router and it just broke on me last week. Now I have the Belkin N+ Router model F5D8235-4.

Before, when I turned on internet sharing with the DLink router, everything went smooth and I could automatically connect via ethernet to the internet, but now when I attempt to connect it says that there is no internet access on the Win7 box. I assume this has something to do with the new router that I installed.

One thing to note is that My Ethernet in Network preferences says that it "has a self assigned IP and may not be able to connect." Is a self assigned IP the problem and is there a way to fix it by modifying the network preferences or is there something I have to do to my router to get this to work.

Windows On Mac :: Windows Sharing Formatted Drive

Jan 16, 2009

I have a PC, and a macbook. I also have an external harddrive, formatted for mac. What I would like to do is plug the external hard drive into the PC, and share it over the network so that I can access it wirelessly from my macbook. The problem is that windows does not recognise the drive, so I cannot share it. Any mac-drive-formatted reading programs only read the drive from within the program, so I still can't share it.

OS X :: Remote Login And Web Sharing Not Working?

I have both Remote Login and Web Sharing enabled on my Leopard Macbook. When I try to SSH to it (from the same network) it just hangs, without ever asking for a password. Web Sharing says it can't find the host, even from on the Macbook itself.

For the record, Screen Sharing and File Sharing are working fine.

Anyone have any ideas what might be wrong?

OS X :: Transferrng Files - Network Sharing Not Working

Sep 2, 2010

I will be getting my first Mac tomorrow - a Mac Pro. I have about 750 gb of data I need to transferr from my PC to the new Mac.

I have used MRoogle to search MacRumors and also have searched the apple forums but I must be using the wrong search terms.

I will not have a network to hook both computers up to so network sharing will not work.

I have purchased two new 2 tb external HD to use as off site backups for my new Mac.

DO I need to format one of them for NTFS and put the data on it and then hook it up to the Mac and drag and drop or can I leave the harddrive in MFS format and still use it to move files to from the MAc? I just do not know how to do this?

OS X Mavericks :: Sharing / Synchronizing Calendars Not Working

Jun 20, 2014

I bought a MacBook Pro for my wife yesterday and want to share calendars on my MacMini so that we avoid ":double-booking", which seems to happen all too frequently.  Both machines are running OS 10.9.3, are signed into the same Apple ID and are — think — connected iCloud.  The address books seem to have been shared.  Internet connection is fine.  But I cannot get the calendar up on the new computer.  I have no problem  with iPhone and iPad.  So, obviously, I am doing something, and probably something very basic, incorrectly.  But what???
