    MacPro 2012 - Can I use both ethernet ports?

    Is there a tutorial somewhere? I don't really understand UNIX or whatever language is used in Terminal. I just want to set Ethernet port 1 to one DHCP for WeTransfer and TeamViewer and port 2 set to office connections and printing.

    MacPro 2012 - Can I use both ethernet ports?

    I have a mid 2012 MacPro running Sierra with 32gb RAM. I'd like to use both Ethernet ports on the back - one for file transfers and one for office networking and printing. Is there a way to do this?

    Roxie toast version for Mac Pro El Capitan

    I have a Mac Pro 2008 with El Capitan and want to get DVD and BluRay burning software for home videos. I was considering Toast V15. First, will it work and second, is there something better than Toast?

    ATA HD from 2003 MDD - how to retrieve data to G5

    Does the optical drive need to stay connected or can I remove it altogether? The old drive isn't showing. It spins up but doesn't mount. HOLD ON - my expectations were too quick - THERE THEY ARE, both drives. Thanks!!

    ATA HD from 2003 MDD - how to retrieve data to G5

    True True True - how could I call my MacPro's G5's. It's been raining so much this spring, my brain is going mushy! Sweet on the 2008. It's sitting right here - I'll have a look. Once again, DeltaMac comes through!

    ATA HD from 2003 MDD - how to retrieve data to G5

    Hey all - I have a 2003 G4 MDD that I am planning to sell, probably as a parts machine. We had a power issue as a result of an electrical problem with my laser printer that I'm guessing fried the power supply on the MDD. I now have G5's (2008 and 2012). How can I or how do I go about retrieving...

    Where does Sierra store Custom printer settings

    Update : You know what I like most about this forum, besides the help and knowledge I've received over the years, is the MAGICAL aspect. Almost Unicorn Magical. While waiting for a reply, I did some digging and testing some plist files in the Preference folder and found the page setup files...

    Where does Sierra store Custom printer settings

    Hey all - After switching from El Capitan to Sierra, I need to copy my custom paper and sheet size settings for my HP Z3200ps plotter. Both systems are on separate drives and I need to bring the sheet size and different paper settings into Sierra. There are so many places to look in the Library...

    Upgrade (?) from El Capitan to Sierra

    Just found it myself - the checkbox at the bottom of the get info window - "Ignore ownership on this volume" Easy peasy

    Upgrade (?) from El Capitan to Sierra

    One more thing - I am now using 2 startup drives. One for El Cap, one for Sierra. Once I'm totally comfortable with Sierra, I'll stay as that as my main OS. I have 4 drives total, one in each bay. How can I save to any of the drives without having a permissions conflict? Should I just make...

    Upgrade (?) from El Capitan to Sierra

    It’s just something I was curious about. My iMessage isn’t working on El Capitan but does on Sierra. Syncing iCloud to all devices was a major PIA on El Cap but synced right up on Sierra. It was more of a “why” than an “if”.

    Upgrade (?) from El Capitan to Sierra

    I probably know the answer to this already but is there a way to use the quick user switch from a user on El Capitan and quick switch to a user on SIerra. My money is on no but that'd be pretty neat if it worked.
