    Using NATD and IPFW to share a cable connectionw with 2 enet cards

    You are correct. After rereading your post I see that in fact you have the opposite arrangement than I do. I do not know why I misread your configuration. My apologies for the confusion. tim

    what a nice mail.app!

    OK, so maybe it isn't the "perfect" mail application. I retract that statement. I did not experience the same problems everyone else is having, but I could not use Mail.app due to its inability handle multiple profiles simultaneously. I stuck with Eudora, but I had problems there I think because...

    Using NATD and IPFW to share a cable connectionw with 2 enet cards

    Unfortunately in my attempt to get natd and Classic working together I'm getting more familiar with ipfw than I cared to. The problem is in your divert statement. You should use interface en1, which you indicated is the interface to the cable modem. Don't divert en0 traffic. tim

    Using NATD and IPFW to share a cable connectionw with 2 enet cards

    I'm finding more and more evidence that Classic and OS X are running two completely seperate network stacks. I added the following rule to ipfw: ipfw add 6000 deny all from any to any That completely shuts down the OS X access to the network, but Classic apps work perfectly fine. tcpdump...

    Using NATD and IPFW to share a cable connectionw with 2 enet cards

    OK, after some careful examination it appears the problem lies in Classic's Open Transport. I used tcpdump to listen to the two ethernet cards and watched traffic before and after launching Classic. Before launching Classic everything works fine and I won't bore you with the details (as...

    Using NATD and IPFW to share a cable connectionw with 2 enet cards

    I'm going to look into an easier way to creating a startup item. While by Unix standards the described procedure may be a small thing, the Mac way has to have a simpler way to do these things or OS X will not sell a half million copies in its lifetime, much less in a year. While continuing to...

    AsanteFAST install

    Has anyone else had to disable autonegotiation using Classic AsanteFast Options to get their card working? I am trying to eliminate variables to get a consistently working card, and this seems to be a part of it. thanks in advance, tim

    Using NATD and IPFW to share a cable connectionw with 2 enet cards

    I can confirm this - I had the setup working fine with the cable modem going to en1 and the hub going to en0, and the I launched Classic and it stopped working. I haven't figured out how to get the shell script to execute as a root if I log on as an administrator that is not root. Any...

    what a nice mail.app!

    It'd be a perfect mail application if it the replies came from the email account it checks - I have several email accounts that I have to check individually (I'm using a pre-commercial version of Eudora Lite) and Mail.app can check different accounts but as far as I can tell replies to emails...

    Don't use telnet!

    The whole point of being a Mac user instead of a Unix user is that we don't wish to have to refer to man pages and edit config files. That is _so_ 20th century. Where's the Control Panel for it?
