Apple Networking

Apple devices including Macs, iPhones, iPods and iPad support standard wired and wireless networking technologies, but they also utilize custom applications and some special techniques for networking with each other and with non-Apple devices. Apple manufacturers the AirPort line of wireless networking products, and has its own networking protocols, AppleTalk and AFP (Apple Filing Protocol).

It sounds pretty great, but if you have family sharing turned on is your music/data/etc automatically synced to all devices on the plan? Or are there specific controls for that?

Hi Everyone,

If you use on Family Sharing you have to set it up in the beginning. You do that by inviting members by name (it searches your Contacts app)  or email address (you can create an AppleID for a child if they don't have an email address). Once everything is setup, you the "Organizer" agree to pay for iTunes, iBooks, and App Store purchases for everyone that's in your Family Membership. The cool thing about Family Membership though is that "all songs, albums, movies, TV shows, books, and apps ever purchased by family members are immediately available to everyone else in the group" (that's all done automatically if they're in your Family group). Here is the skinny on Family Sharing: Link.

To touch on the music sharing, you will need to buy a Family plan ($14.99 a month), which is good for sharing up to 6 people. If you want just music for yourself it will cost $9.99, but for those college students who need music to keep them going, it will cost $4.99. Yep, Apple cares about you Under/Grad students who live off of noodles and PB&J.

The title feels pretty click-baity.

If there isn't an actual way to change the priority, then why is that the title?

From the summary:

I chose the title to fit what people will probably search for.  Sometimes the solution is, there is no solution, but there are feasible work arounds.

SUMMARY

Enterprise backup in a heterogeneous network is a subject full of complications and restrictions. Issues such as filename & path structure, attributes and extended metadata always tend to complicate the subject to the extent where either the solution costs the earth, or simply doesn’t function the way you want; something that normally becomes obvious around the time of a restore.

My situation isn’t all that unusual; I work for a medium sized employer in the UK, a business which relies in the majority on a windows server infrastructure and is geographically spread across multiple sites. Recently I was asked to provide a Apple Server infrastructure to allow a more efficient co-existence between the company’s windows and Apple desktop fleet, which took the form of a OSX 10.6 server implementation and some interesting integration works between the MS and Apple environments.

The Situation

My employers network (or at least the part relevant to this article) is based on a windows server 2003 file server & a windows 2003 backup server, running Symantec’s backup exec 10, writing data to a LTO3 tape robot. Symantec have just announced their support for Mac OSX10.6 clients in the ‘almost released’ Backup exec 2010 R2 – but if your employer is like mine and either doesn’t have or is unwilling to pay for the most recent version, or hasn’t maintained an active support agreement (allowing upgrades) then this isn’t much use.

My employers requirement is …
