Software :: Setting Safari Homepage?

Dec 25, 2009

Now for some reason I cannot change my homepage. I change it in the Safari preferences but as soon as Safari is restarted my homepage goes back to the previous. Now what is interesting is the fact that my homepage which is un-changeable is actually my ISPs website 'DartyBox'.

The only possible reason why I believe my homepage is this, is I do remember a long time ago when I first moved to this apartment sticking in the disk that was issued with the ADSL router, the 'DartyBox'.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Safari, Secure Connection To Sites And Parental Control?

Mar 22, 2012

I'm setting up Safari for a child, and have Parental Controls enabled and am customizing the list of sites that can be visited. I'm allowing [URL] and have multiple http and https Netflix URL's allowed. However, when I test accessing this site, Safari gives an error stating that it cannot establish a "secure connection". The same computer, with a different account, can access the same URL without the error. My assumption would be that since I specifically allowed several [URL] URL's, that this would work just fine. By granting specific access, you are bypassing Parental Controls in a controlled way.

OS X :: Parental Control Logs Not Working

Jul 28, 2009

I'm running 10.5.7 and have a parental controlled account where I control what applications can be run. The internet isn't restricted, but it is supposed to log what websites have been visited. The problem is, nothing is being logged. There are sites that show up in Safaris history, but nothing shows up in the parental control logs. I was on the phone for over an hour with Apple, and they don't know what is going on. They said they would send the problem to the engineering department and they would get back to me in 3-5 days. The logging worked at one time. Does anybody know what could be going on, or how to fix it, or how to keep it from happening anymore.

OS X Yosemite :: Parental Control Not Working

Dec 8, 2014

I set up Parental Control for one user to access ALL apps except one, but when the user logs in can't access anything at all. Sometimes receives messages "you're not allow... allow once, allow always" sort of thing. Then many other apps simply can't open.

Applications :: Finding Parental Control Application For Mac?

Sep 20, 2009

I use ComputerTime application for managing parental controls on my Windows machines. However, I do not know of an equivalent application on the Mac. Is there an application for the Mac that offers parental control like:

1. Specifying when a child can log in to the Mac?
2. What day a child can use the Mac?
3. How much time is allowed per day for use on the Mac and where each session totalled up will not exceed the total allowed time per day?
4. How long each session is allowed?

Software :: Parental Control - Unable To Browse

Mar 13, 2010

When I set parental controls to automatically prevent access to adult web content, it also seems to be causing a problem with access to gmail, ebay, and some other websites. However, instead of getting the "oops!" message you get when you try to access an adult website, the page says, "Failed to open page. Safari can't find the server." When I change parental controls to allow all web content, the problem goes away. When I change it back, it comes back, so I'm sure it's the parental control setting.

I've already tried adding ebay, gmail, etc, to the list of allowed websites in parental controls, but it has not worked. How can I fix this problem?

Applications :: Any Good Keyloggers For Parental Control Purposes?

Oct 10, 2006

My mother is switching to mac soon, mostly likely an iMac to use as a family computer for her and my youger sister. She likes what sees so far especially in parental controls. However, she wants to be able to keep tabs on my younger sister to make she isn't going to places or saying things she shouldn't be on the web; she wants a second layer of security (she worries that she can get around things parental controls because she is very computer savvy). I figured a keylogger would be the best thing because we could keep track of everything she types on the mac. Does anyone know any good (free) keyloggers for mac?

OS X Mavericks :: Parental Control Time Limit Not Working?

Aug 19, 2014

For example, i set up the time limit to 1/2 hour for both week days and weekends. But I still I can get more than 6 hours. I searched the forum, historically Apple OSX has parental control bugs in versions. 

What's the fix or remedy or other apps to limit the hour? Some people point out "time limit" and "bed time" conflicts with each other, check only one on solved some people's problem. But it doesn't work for me

MacBook Air :: Remote Parental Control Not Recognising Administrator

Dec 10, 2014

Setting up a Macbook air for one of the kids, ready for Santa to deliver.

Everything seems fine (new Apple ID's , creation of a happy family in the cloud etc) ...until I wanted to set up the Parental Controls.

I have added myself as administrator and reduced his account to standard as with the instructions I have seen elsewhere. I can set the constraints no problem on his computer.

However, even though I checked the "manage control from another computer" box on the MBA, the "master "iMac where I want to do the control will not let me. 

I go into the iMac to do the Parental control, I see the MBA in question. I select, and when it prompts me to enter the administrator details; but it will not recognise me. This is the administrator id I created on the Macbook air.

I have tried several times, and after it fails, it seems to freeze the Parental Control Preference view , and won't allow me to select that machine again. I have to go out of preferences and return, unlock and try again - each time it fails. 

Of course I can wrench the Macbook from his grubby hands each time I want to change the constraints; but being able to remotely do it from my evil genius' lair was what I wanted to do.

All machines mentioned have been Yosemite'd, and are all latest versions.

Windows On Mac :: Setting Up VirtualBox And Parental Controls?

Feb 13, 2010

I've set up an account for my kids to use and also have VirtualBox installed on my account.

The kids have an educational program that only runs under Windows and I would like to give them access to it but not to the rest of VB. Is there any way I can do this?

I've thought of perhaps creating a new VB disk just for them but I can't see how I could restrict them from then opening up other VB disks that I don't want to give them access to.

OS X :: Using Parental Controls - Setting Websites Permissions

Feb 15, 2010

I'm in the process of picking out a new imac for myself and will pass on my old one to my six year old daughter as soon as I upgrade the ram and install snow leopard. Now that she can read and get on the computer on her own, can someone give me a few quick pointers on making my computer a little more safe for her. Meaning: are there parental controls in snow leopard or safari that would block adult websites. I don't even know if they rate sites like tv shows and if its even possible to block any part of the internet.

OS X :: Parental Control Time Limits Broken In Snow Leopard?

Sep 20, 2009

I have a (managed) user account set up for my 6 year old son with time limits. I limit him to 30 minutes M-F and 60 minutes Sat & Sun. Ever since I upgraded to Snow Leopard the time limits don't seem to be functioning e.g. it doesn't tell him his time is almost up and it doesn't cut off his usage. I've even gone so far as to blow away his user and set up a new one and it doesn't seem to have helped. It still doesn't recognize time limits.

OS X Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: No Parental Control Icon In System Preferences

Mar 27, 2012

I'm using Snow Leopard 10.6.8 on a MacMini Server. Just set up the computer up and am trying to get user accounts for all of my family members. I have set up two Admin accounts, and want to set up a standard account for my child utilizing Parental Controls. When I set up the user, there is no box to check that says "Enable Parental Controls" and there is not Parental Control Icon in the System Preferences>System tab next to the "Accounts" icon. I have updated the system software using "Software Update" and have no programs or apps installed that did not come with my server from Apple.

FaceTime :: Will Not Connect (but Rings) For Parental Controlled User

Apr 22, 2012

I have a parental controlled user setup on a brand new mac mini running Lion. When initiating or receiving a FaceTime call as the parental controlled user, the connection rings, but after trying to connect the call fails. When the mac mini user is a normal user (not parental controlled), it works fine. The parental controlled user has their own apple id / email address. Under the parental controls it is set to unlimited web access.

OS X :: Unable To Make Any Changes On System Preferences / Put Parental Control On System

Mar 29, 2010

could not be sure whether the Admin user - password reset with the CD would be the solution to my question as suggested in previous threads I searched - and have no idea where my start up install CD is

So my question-

I was trying to put parental control to ask for password when my computer starts up. I did something I guess and messed up the info.

I can log in with my own account when I restart my apple - which says now it is a standard account (must have messed that up)- but can not make any changes on system preferences or anything else that requires login and password. It requires Admin info. My own login that I use now used to be my admin so do not have any other info set.

now on system pref - accounts - an account titled "test" seems to be admin but can not even access that and reverse myself to be the admin since I can not unlock system pref. Or cant click on "Login Options" for the same reason.

There are no other users on this computer than me.

What do I need to do to make myself admin again?

Hope this was somewhat a clear question

MacBook :: Fan Control - Why Always +100 RPM From Setting

May 23, 2009

The actual Base Speed that results is always 100 RPM higher than the Base Speed I set in Fan Control. Now, this isn't hard to workaround, but I'm wondering if anyone else is seeing such behavior.I like to keep the MB at around 1200 RPM when I am on battery power in the cafe. It saves a lot of power, and there is a negligible increase in temperature (on the order of 3-5 degrees F), and Fan Control has been great for that.

Software :: Finding Parental Control Software For The Mac?

Mar 28, 2007

I recently swithced my teenager's computer from windows to mac. On the windows machine I had parental control software that would let me see her keystrokes, web sites visited, etc. For the Mac, the only programs I can find are more for restricting access (restrict internet sites that can be visited) or the access to the computer (shuts off at 10:00). Does anyone know of software that will restore may ability to monitor her actions?

Mac Pro :: SMC Control - Setting Safe Fans Speed

Jul 29, 2008

During the summer, I don't have A/C in my house. My temps were getting pretty high, around 55C/130F for processors and up to 78c/172f for ram. That is pretty high, and I suspect it is because the ambient temp in my room is somewhere in the 90s. I am just very acclimated to the heat, and it doesn't bother me.

I downloaded SMC Fan control and bumped the min fan speeds up to:
1250rpm for Exhaust
1150rpm for CPU
800rpm for Power Supply
1350rpm for HD

This has made a tremendous difference. CPU is down over 20C and ram is down about 30-35C. Are these fan speeds safe? What are the Mac Pro fans rated at, and will the increased speed shorten their lifespan? I'd like to keep these current fan speeds if it is safe.
