Snow Leopard :: Setting Up Comcast Static IP


I'm a noob to this stuff. My work just purchased a static ip address from comcast and I'm tasked with connecting the ip to our Snow Leopard Server.The server is connect to a gigabit switch that is connected to the Comcast business gateway.I've entered the Network information Comcast gave me for the static ip into the manual config under network settings.

That doesn't seem to work. I'm sure I'm missing some step or something.I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Setting Up A MacMini As Webserver With Static IP And ISP Managed DNS
i am trying to do something which i thought was fairly simple but even after many days of reading and experimenting and re-installing 10.6 Server 4 times (cause i messed up so nothing was working anymore) i still can't really understand what exactly i need to do. I have read all articles and posts i could find about OSX Server, DNS but i still don't get it.

OS X Leopard :: Setting Up Static IP For Port Forwarding
I have an iMac with Leopard 10.5.6. I live in the UK and I'm subscribed to Virgin cable broadband, through a Netgear WGR614v9 router. I have a P2P program called Utorrent, and I'm trying to carry out a task called 'port forwarding'. I read through [URL] and it tells me that in order to do so, I have to set up a static IP on my iMac to do so.

I've tried to do this in Networking in System preferences -
1. I go to TCP/IP and changed the configure IPv4 to Manual
2. Changed the IP address to something similar to my router IP (router IP is 192.168.1.1 and I changed the IPv4 address to 192.168.1.10)
3. Wend to DNS section and entered in the DNS server addresses that I got from phoning the internet provider

Then pressed Apply to find that my internet connection goes down completely. The Airport works properly and can connect to the router, but the internet is showing a red sign. Setting up the port forwarding in the Netgear router is easy enough - you just go to the port forwarding section and add a port to open. Every time I go to the [URL] (my designated port here) and check, the port is closed.

Snow Leopard :: Sharing Comcast POP Mailbox - Messages Not Deleting
I'm trying to share a Comcast POP mailbox between an iMac/snow leopard, iPhone and Web-mail client. I have all the mail clients setup to leave mail on the server, but they are not handling deletions properly. By the way, when testing I did a bunch of refreshes, get-mails, syncs and quit/restart apps to make sure they were not running off a cached copy. Here are the symptoms:

1. When a piece of mail is deleted from the server using the web client. It continues to show up in the inbox of the iMac and iPhone, no amount of refreshing seems to fix this.
2. When I delete a piece of mail from the iMac mail client, followed by doing a Mailbox->erase deleted items->in all accounts the piece of mail still exists on the server and can be seen by the web client. Doing a synchronize or restarting mail doesn't help.
3. When I delete a piece of mail from the iPhone, then go to the trash folder and "delete all" the messages DO get removed from the server and are no longer visible on the web client. However they are still visible on the iMac (same problem as #1 above)

On the iMac, "Mailbox behaviors" is set with move deleted messages to trash checked and permanently erase deleted messages set to "when quitting mail". Under advanced, remove copy from server after retrieving a message is not checked (should it be checked and set to "when moved from inbox?") A summary of the problems seem to be:
a. On iMac, when messages are deleted and "erase deleted" is used, they are not deleted from the server.
b. On iMac and iPhone, when a message is deleted from the server, it remains visible on iMac and iPhone.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Static IP Addresses?
I am trying to set up my own web- and mail server on a Mac Mini, and wireless connect with three Macs, one Windows machine and two printers. Not experienced, I am learning something new every day.

My set-up is Internet - modem - Time Capsule - MacMini (server) all ethernet connected. I have two DNSs registered and received nine (9) static IP addresses from my ISP (ATT).

I assume that in this case, the modem should also be the gateway. It has its own IP address. I just can't figure out where the static IP addresses that were given to me (and that I pay extra for...)

Snow Leopard :: Adding Permanent Static Routes
I want to add a permanent static route to access to my Time Capsule over the wire rather than over wireless. I can do this by hand using the route command

sudo route add -host TC.IP.AD.RS GA.TE.IP.AD -static

but I can find no official way of making this a permanent feature. There ought to be some way of specifying static routes to the networking startup code - but this seems to be a missing element in MacOS.

There are some scripts around that install a file in /Library/StartupItems - but I suspect that this is actually deprecated in SL.

a) am I right about StartupItems?
b) if so then what's the 'official' way of doing this?

I currently have installed a script in my crontab that wakes up every hour, looks for the route and adds it if needs be - so I have a workaround which will do.

Snow Leopard :: Switch From DHCP And Static IP Address Automatically?
At work I have to connect using a static IP address. At home and pretty much everywhere else I use DHCP. I have setup different locations in the network control panel and switch manually every time I connect at the office or somewhere else. My iPhone on the other hand switches settings automatically because the settings are tied to the network you are connecting to. Is it possible to have my Mac switch from DHCP to static IP automatically based on the network found?

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: AirPort Extreme And Static IP Info
Basically before I added a router to my server set up (Comcast leading right into a mini) I wasn't having any issues when using -checkhostname. I was just simply entering all of my static IP info, replacing the private network info that was present during setup assistant, changing the IP, gateway, subnet, primary & secondary DNS with the info I was given by Comcast.

When I added the router and clean installed, I now get the dreaded:
Primary address: 173.xxx.xxx.xx (my static IP)
Current HostName: server.example.com (I own the FQDN)
DNS HostName: 173-xxx-xxx-xx-Philadelphia.hfc.comcastbusiness.net

I tried a clean install and the same thing happened even when I changed the 173-xxx-xxx-xx-Philadelphia.hfc.comcastbusiness.net during the setup assistant. Now setup assistant doesn't ask me for the Airport password like it did before to auto manage it.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Need Static IP Address For VPN Access
I work from home, and so do my partners. I recently bought a mac mini server, so that we will have 1 central computer where all the projects are stored. Now with me being a mobileme user, I of course have access to it no matter where I go. But for my partners, I need to provide them with VPN access so they can get to/store files on the server. In order to do that, of course, I'm going to need a static IP address. Problem is, mediacom (worst service imaginable for ISP) won't provide a static IP address unless I upgrade to a business account. No thanks, dont feel like spending $80+ for only needing the static IP. So I guess my question is this: Is there a way to get around using a static IP address? Any 3rd party software solutions, online services, etc available to me? I consider myself a novice, as I'm being forced into the position of being the "expert" on this now.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Static Reservation Getting The Wrong IP Address - DHCP?
I have a machine that has a reservation in the list that is not getting the correct IP. In the logs and in the Clients list I see it show up as if it doesn't have a reservation. I tried entering it manually under the reservations and also selecting it from the client list and creating a reservation but it always get's the old address and will not get the reserved one. Any thoughts? or ways to purge it totally out of the system? I'm thinking something is hanging out in a config file somewhere.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Two Domains + Two Servers + One Static IP Address - DNS Confusion
I have two domains, two mac mini SL servers, one airport extreme, and multiple static IPs, but only one of them pointing to the router. I've configured DNS successfully for the primary domain [URL] and thought that I had set up a second primary zone for the second domain [URL] but all external requests point to [URL]. So the two setups i've tried are:

Reverse zone
1.0.10.in-addr.arpa.

10.0.1.200 - [URL]
10.0.1.201 - [URL]


Primary zone
[URL]

[URL] - 10.0.1.200
[URL] - 10.0.1.201

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Server Setup With Airport Extreme - Using Static IP
To preface, I am working with a Mac Mini w/ OS x server, an Airport Extreme base station and a static IP address.

So, a few weeks ago I installed a server at our small (4 person) office with a dynamic IP address (we just got our static today). I had the Airport Extreme setup to supply the Mac Mini w/ server its own IP address to which everyone connected to, locally. Now, we just picked up a static IP address and I am a bit confused as to what to do (DHCP, DNS, NAT, etc...all are a bit confusing). We got the static IP so we could access the server remotely.

Does anyone know of a step-by-step guide to doing this, or could someone give me a brief rundown?

For examaple, for the DNS piece, do I need a registered domain name, will something like [URL] work? If I have one, should I use it? Do I need to modify the nameservers within my web-hosting control panel (if I use a large 3rd party web hosting solution). I see a lot of "[URL]"s thrown around...should I just use that? I want to be able to access our server remotely, so I believe, DNS is needed.

Essentially what I need is:
1) Airport Extreme settings config (incorporating my new IP, subnet mask, gateway and 2 DNS servers I was provided with today by my ISP). Where do I insert these pieces?

2) Server admin settings for adding the new server (I removed our previous one from the list in server admin), as we were only using it for File Sharing and those same files still reside on the hard drive and will be easy to make "shared." If I click the "+" to add a server, what "Address" do I provide? etc etc etc

I know this is quite a large ask and I respect the time of all the community members here! But I'm hoping there exists a guide somewhere or someone can break it down very simply for me.

MacBook Pro :: Static / Snow On Second Display?
I just walked in the door and shook my mouse to wake up the screen. My Macbook Pro's display came up instantly (and normally) but the second monitor... a SyncMaster 220WM hooked up via mini displayport to DVI, showed nothing but snow... like exactly what you'd see if a TV station wasn't getting reception.

I'm running on the 9600m GT at the moment. 2.66Ghz C2D mid-2009 MBP unibody.

I waited about two minutes... and the image of my second desktop came back to normal in an instant. No excessive fan or heat... no need to restart, no kernel panic... nothing of that sort. And the kind of static that showed up again reminded me of either a TV channel with no reception... or the static you see when you boot into a PS3 game via HDMI... you get a momentary bit of static when it negotiates the HDCP signal.

I never encountered this issue using the same cable connected to my SR MBP with DVI.

Is this a graphics card issue? or an issue with the mini-displayport DVI adapter? Was it having a hard time negotiating HDCP?

OS X :: Setting Up Network Printer In Snow Leopard?
I have a Mac Pro which I just upgraded from Leopard to Snow Leopard. I have an HP Multi-Function 2840 hooked up to the router via ethernet. This printer previously worked through Leopard.

Now, my understanding is that for SL, the drivers for this printer are in the operating system and can not be downloaded from HP.

How do I set this up as a network printer? I would like to be able to print from my other computers in the house as well.

Please Note: Snow Leopard only provides drivers for the printing function of this machine. I am going to have to revert to other means to use this device to scan.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Why Error Setting Up IMAP In Snow Leopard Server
I'm trying to set up the mailservices in my MacMiniSnowLeopardServer. When I run the mail wizard or try to tic the "IMAP" box manually and save, the ticbox gets unticked by itself and I can never add IMAP or POP to my service! What is wrong. Have I missed something somewhere else or what?? Everything else is running perfect apart from the mail obviously. My server's name is "macserver" and I've set the Domain name to macserver.local (it works with the server webpage on the network so it should be right) and the hostname to mail.macstuff.se and it is set up with mx records at dyndns.com.

Snow Leopard :: Setting Up Bluetooth DUN With Two Devices?
I have two phones with data plans (one work, one personal) and both support mac tethering via bluetooth and I have tethering plans with both. They have different coverage areas. How do I set up 10.6 so that I can choose which device to connect to and it'll just work to get me online? First I tethered device A, and device A worked. Then when I went to configure device B for tethering as well, configuring device B overwrote everything and device A no longer worked. So I re-setup device A to tether and then device A worked, but device B no longer would.

Device A: AT&T BlackBerry 8900
Device B: T-Mobile BlackBerry 9700
Computer: MacBook running the latest release of 10.6
Latest version of BlackBerry Desktop Manager for Mac installed.

If someone could even just point me in the direction of a how-to on tethering multiple devices, I could probably extrapolate from there to tethering multiple BlackBerrys. I'm pretty tech savvy, I just have no previous experience with Bluetooth DUN configuration and Apple's online manuals are.... um... lacking in this topic area.

Snow Leopard :: Setting Up Laserwriter 320 Via AirPort

Snow Leopard :: Tips On Setting Up New User Account?
I recently purchases a ScanSnap scanner, and have been trying to get it to work for a week now. I've been on the phone with Level 1 Fujitsu tech support, and we've determined that whatever is preventing ScanSnap from working is in my user account (it works flawlessly in my wife's user account on the same machine). Getting ScanSnap working is so important to me that I'm considering creating a fresh user account for myself. This is a daunting task because I have so many preferences, special configurations, symlinks, etc. that I've created over the years. I don't think I can just migrate my data from the old user account to the new one, because then I might re-create whatever is causing the problem with the ScanSnap - right? Is there any way to make this process easier, or do I just have to stick it out and do it the hard way?
