Hello, we have a mixed environment of windows and apple computers.  We have a windows file server that is running windows 7 SP1 with an IIS local website running.  Its an aspx page.

This works just fine on the windows computers.  I can access the http://websitename/ without a problem.

The problem is trying to pull up the site on any of the apple iMacs.  I can't get it to pull up.  

The iMac that I tested on was on OS X Yosemite Version 10.10.5

In any browser (Chrome, Safari) I get an error 'ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED' or 'Safari Can't Find the Server'

They are using airport extreme and ethernet at the same time.  

So far the only thing I tried was changing the service order of the network to ethernet first.

hi Apple folks

i prefer using Xcode for Python programming but i notice it has no native support (or full-featured) for debugging Python using Xcode. or, probably i missed something with Xcode?

basically, how can i have full-featured debug functions for Python code using Xcode?

thanks,

Have got a iMac 27", issue with it is that when switching the iMac on I can hear the DVD drive and power start but there's no output to the screen whats so ever but I can hear the iMac is still powered up and running.

Around a week before this issue has happened I has vertical coloured lines displayed on the iMac which I had to hold the power button in to force the power off.

Any ideas I would be most grateful to hear..!
Many thanks.

With PCs on a domain it's easy. i created a GPO that redirects Documents, Desktop, Pic, etc to our corporate OneDrive folder so they automatically sync to the web. I'd like to do that with a Mac. I've done some reading and apparently i'm supposed to create a symbolic link. I'm not a Mac person so I'm not sure of the process. I used ln -s ~/Documents /~OneDrive
The end result is to redirect Documents, Pictures, Desktop to those folders in OneDrive.

We have a mac book pro 2017 generation, it currently has High Sierra on it and is encrypted using filevault. When we go to upgrade it to Mojave we get the following error "com.apple.osinstallersetup.error error 702".

Has anyone come across this before?

I have a Windows domain on which I recently decommissioned an old 2008 R2 server and replaced it with a new Server 2012 R2 machine. There is a single end-user with an iMac. Every time he reboots his Mac, he loses access to the shared volumes on the new server and his OSX tries to connect him to the non-existant old server. I keep trying to resolve this and have yet to come up with a solution that takes hold permanently. Can anyone offer any advice?

Thanks much.

Finding my Sent folder in Outlook (Mac) v. 16.18?

I have used Outlook for months, but must have clicked something. Now, I can not find my Sent folder.

Is there an option to return the UI to the default?

I am not sure what changed, but it's hurting my productivity!

Thanks

Acronis Data Cloud 7.8 Enhances Cyber Protection

A closer look at five essential enhancements that benefit end-users and help MSPs take their cloud data protection business further.

Hello,
I have a user who has mapped network drives in his Macbook Air. What I am not sure to tell him is where he can view them after mapping for regular use since we don't use Mac much. I know in Windows, after mapping a drive, it simply appears under My Computer with the other drives onboard drives. Is there a place he can go on his Mac to see those shared drives in the same manner? Thanks!

Hello! I have a user on a Mac who uses Outlook 2016 for Mac. I am not a Mac person and neither is he (I don't know why the boss said to give him one to answer the inevitable). Now in Windows, I know how to create a PST file within Outlook so that the user can drag mail down to it off the Exchange server storing in locally in the PST file to clean up their mailbox space. What is the equivalent of doing this in the Outlook 2016 for Mac environment? Sorry for a dumb question. Google actually doesn't give me anything really clear for some reason.

So I have a client with a couple of Apple MAc's for the design team. They have two identical HP CP5520 Colour LaserJets, even built in the same month, same firmware, etc. One of the Mac's can print to one of them and not the other. Just hangs at "Printing - Connected to Printer" until eventually it pauses the printer. I have tried both via "Secure AirPrint" and the other driver listed which I assume is Jet Direct. Both methods work fine with the other printer.

I have compared every web manage page and cannot see any differences other than, and this sounds completely irrelevant, in the General Troubleshooting page, one of the pages auto-hides the options for the paper path test, and the other doesn't.

Very confused. Off to find out how to turn the CUPS web interface on to see if that tells me anything.

Need a new internal 1T SSD (not hybrid)

I have a 2013 MacBook with a 500GB SSD, but I need more space. The drive is 2012 and slower than today's SSD's.

Any suggestions for a drive I should get? I am budget conscious but do not want buyer's remorse once I upgrade to the new drive.

Thanks.

Which Mac is better?

I own an old MacBook and need a larger hard-drive. I have a 500GB SSD and found another Mac with a 1T SSD. This is described in the ad behind my About Mac box.

I will be solving my disk problem, and getting a larger display. But, I may be getting slower memory.

Aside from the potential that this replacement Mac may have "screen delamination" problems, do you see that I would be aling a step backwards by getting this Mac with a 1T SSD?

Hi,

I just realized that my VMWare Fusion 10 doesn't detect any usb device anymore.  Reinstall vm tool doesn't change anything even not upgrading to Fusion 11. I'm running VMware Fusion in my MacBook Pro OS High Sierra 10.13.6.

What can I do?

Connecting my WiFi Xerox 6022 Laser Jet (Macbook)

My printer stopped working, and before I realized the router was blinking, I deleted the Printer.

Now I have reconnected it with the WPS button, but I can not find how to add the printer to my MacBook, so I can use it.

What am I missing?

Thanks.

HP 8710/iMac Issue

After several days of off again, on again functionality, I have come to this conclusion. The problem is in my iMac, not the network and not the printer. Two weeks ago I was convinced it was the printer, so I quickly ordered a new HP 8710 so I could just swap the old 8710 out. Ultimately, the brand new one started doing exactly what the old one was doing.

On Tuesday I ran this test. (All sent to the HP 8710 wirelessly)
-Print from my 6th gen iPad. OK
-Print from my iPhone X. OK
-Print from my wife’s iPhone X. OK
-Print from wife’s MacBook Pro (running High Sierra, latest update) OK
All of those worked perfectly.

-Print from my iMac (running High Sierra, latest update)
Error. Cannot find, connect, or in any other way, play with the 8710.

I can print to my Epson 837 wirelessly from my iMac without an issue.

Added HP Smart app on my iMac and things started working yesterday. Was able to do multiple prints, Perhaps it was rebooting my iMac, which I have done numerous times. Perhaps the HP Smart app. Whatever, it worked. This morning, the first chance I had to print, it was back to a “no go” situation. And I just printed this off from my iPhone without an issue.

So, this is where I stand. What in the name of all that is good, has been corrupted in my OS?  Looking to upgrade to Mojave, but don’t want to drag the problem across and have the same situation. Any thoughts? At all?

A client is saying they have malware on their Mac and want to reinstall the OS.  I've read through this a bit https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208496 and it doesn't seem to say anything about malware issues.

My question is: Is it better to reinstall Mac OS to clear up malware issues or erase then restore to factory settings?

Are there other things I should be aware of when performing such a task for this macbook?

This is a question in relation to MAC users useing OSX version 10 and later combined with Windows File Server Windows server 2016

The users experience slow performance. The usage of DS_store files a the main concern.

I found a link https://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/85131-fix-slow-access-of-windows-smb-share-from-mac-os where the values of the smb protocol is altered. This will be change accordingly today. But i am very much interessted in knowledge about how you have solved this issue if you have come across it.

A means of keeping data in sync on specific folders over the internet? Mac VPN tunel?

I have a user that is working from SC at times and in NY others.  all his data resides locally on his Mac in the NY office.  He had asked if there is a way to sync the data to the two physical locations.  Anyone come across anything that could work for this specific request?

alternative solution:  I am thinking either he remotes in to NY from SC and uses something such as GOTOMYPC and the data remains in NY, or possibly a NAS with security, which we may be able to grant access via a url etc.   Otherwise the software would have to have the intelligence to take the files with the most current date/time stamp and overwrite the older of the files regardless of which location the files existed etc.  He could be talking about as much as 200-300GB of data.
Thoughts/ideas?
Thanks!

Hi All,

I've got an iMac, which is doing a restart loop, just a white screen and a chime going in a loop.... the screen doesn't go blank when it restarts, stays white and you keep hearing the chime every 2 to 3 seconds, I've tried all the normal fixes, like holding the shift key, pressing command-option-r-p... nothing seems to work, would anyone know a fix?

I know last resort is taking it to Apple but the machine isn't covered by Apple Care...


Thanks

Hi, I recently took over a network with Mac laptops running Mac OS Yosemite, the laptops were part of a Windows Domain had have some administrative lock down settings. We were provided admin privileges so we removed them from the Domain, although we are the computer admins many settings in system preferences are locked out. It seems to me the previous tech support company used some type of lock down policy to prevent even local administrators to make any changes.  Unfortunately  the previous company won't cooperate passing down info other than providing the admin password.

Does anyone know of a way to "unlock" the settings in system preferences?

I am trying to share an online drive for an FCPX project. I want to have my co-worker open the same library and have access to the assets in a ShareFile drive.
I created and sharing a folder. I have some assets in a folder, when I try to import them I can see them and even preview them, but when I import it then the assents slide in FCP shows as missing file. Why?  and how to correct this?
Also, can two users have the same FCP library open at the same time?
Otherwise, how can we collaborate on the same project?
