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).

On Demand Webinar - Networking for the Cloud Era

This webinar discusses:
-Common barriers companies experience when moving to the cloud
-How SD-WAN changes the way we look at networks
-Best practices customers should employ moving forward with cloud migration
-What happens behind the scenes of SteelConnect’s one-click button

I have 2 macOS 10.12.5 + HP 2055DN LaserJet + HP OfficeJet Pro 8210 all Ethernet [CAT-5] connected to Apple Airport Extreme.

Ever since I backed up one of the Macs with resident Acronis, a request to print from either Mac returns:

This printer has been paused. Do you want to resume printing?

If you do not want to resume the printing of jobs, you may add this job to the printer for later printing. If you select Resume and the printing of jobs cannot be resumed, this job will automatically be added to the printer.

Cancel / Add to Printer / Resume


The result of all this is NO Printing! Nada, Zilch - nothing. No matter which option I select or how long I wait. Rebooting all except Airport Extreme does not help. Sometimes the 8210 control panel displays ‘Printing’ - it does not.

As some of you may know, I have been trying for some weeks to establish a fixed IP address for this printer.l NO Luck Yet…

When I power up the printer, the IP address is: 10.0.1.134 - before the Acronis backup, I could print from both Macs until the 8210 timed out and I had to reboot the 8210.

As you might expect I am getting desperate…

If it were not that I need the color printer and there is an AC unit in my office window, the 8210 would be a candidate for Defenestration.

A solution would be most welcome !!

My last post on here detailed a problem with favourites disappearing from the sidebar.  I got several very detailed and helpful answers, the main gist of these being move away from the Apple version of Samba to a less buggy version.

Before I undertake this I thought I'd pose an alternative question, that being is there anything like mapped network drives on the MAC?  This is what we are using the favourites for, to point at shared folders on a Windows 7 PC acting as a file server.

We have a QNAP on our network which we access via AFP with Mac computers.

Recently we have had a dialogue box pop up:

Message From Server
Something wrong with the volume's CNID DB, using temporary CNID DB instead. Check server messages for details!

Coinciding with this message, we have been unable to view a certain folder via AFP (but can seem to see it via SMB).

From this message I think the CNID database the Mac machines use to access the AFP share may be corrupted but have no idea on how to refresh it or rebuild. We are no longer using this device for TimeMachine backups (as other forum posts have pointed at)

The inaccessible files/folders have since been downloaded locally to machines but we need to fix this as soon as we can, knowing any other folders and documents will not disappear as this one has.

Any help greatly appreciated. Thank you,

Having a really strange issue, I inherited a OS maverick server that was set to share certain folders, each person has read and write permissions on each others folders, whats happening is that If one person moves a folder from their desktop into their server folder, non of the other users with permissions can access it. I have to log into the server and redo the permissions so that others can access it, Its driving me nuts

Everyone is running 10.9.5 except one who has 10.8.5.
