    Speed of a G4 Ti 400 Powerbook with 10.2?

    I installed 10.2 on my PB Ti 400 and I reckon its faster. Not by that much, but the finder is certainly better. I also added 512MB of RAM at the same time, so that helped with app switching. Boot times were much quicker, but its still doing stuff after you log in I reckon. So its...

    multihome and routing?

    cool, thanks for your help. I have after due consideration decided to go for a hardware router. There is a thread here: Which is of some help. I might try to get something working in software anyway just for the...

    multihome and routing?

    Hi, thanks for the help. But that didnt seem to explain how to do what I want. It seemed only to be about IP Aliasing, and the link in the thread didnt work. So how do I do the routing and NAT to share an internet connection with only on NIC? Thanks. spike.

    multihome and routing?

    Hi, I was wondering if I can multi-home my NIC and route between the networks? I know I could route between *two* NICs using BrickHouse to set it up, and I know I can set up multi-homing using the Network prefs. But I dont know how to route between two networks on one interface. Why...

    IP address from MAC address?

    Thanks mcasteel, But the problem is that I have inherited this switch and no one has any idea what its IP address is or the range of the previous network. And its just me with an iMac, a G4 PB and this 24 port switch. So if I pinged a broadcast address I would have to ping all addresses...

    PCM/CIA Ehternet cards?

    Does anyone knoe if PCM/CIA Ethernet cards will work under OSX? I have a Xircom 10/100 card that I'd like to use on G4 PB. I hope I can get it working, i dont think Xircom will ever make drivers for it. I was hoping I could just plug it in and it would appear as a network port... :)...

    IP address from MAC address?

    Hi, Im not sure if this question belongs here. But anyway.... IP address from MAC address? Im guessing there must be some unix tool to do this, but I cant seem to find any info on one. The reason I need it is that I have an ethernet switch for which I know the MAC address. And the...

    Entourage X and Exchange server

    Its been a while since I played with an exchange server, but I think you will need to enable imap mail boxes on the server. Other wise you need to use the Exchange client known just as "Outlook", I dunno if its availble for OSX. ASFAIK native exchange mail boxes are *not* IMAP mail boxes...

    trash: bug? feature?

    I havent checked it out fully yet, but.... If you move something into the trash and then move it out of the trash but onto another volume, it just moves it. It doesnt copy it. But it does remove it from its original place. Does my description make sense? I dont think it does, I...

    Renaming "Apple" applications in OS X

    Oh yeah, so you can :) It's been a while since I added a folder to the dock. I kinda forgot it had to go below the divider. Maybe thats a UI issue?! Oh no, wait didnt Apple the divider there to do just that... ;) spike.

    Renaming "Apple" applications in OS X

    <b>You can boot up in OS 9 and make an alias of your Home Directory and put it ANYWHERE! You can put it on your desktop, on the root of your volume (same level as System, Library, Applications, etc.). So, you might find this to be of use too -- plus you can put it in you dock although I...

    Security? file://

    not even if they know my IP address? i.e. they type "file://myipaddress" Oh wait, I suppose they couldnt becuse stuff needs to go via certain ports and things doesnt it? Like http is on port 80? So I guess "file" is not an internet protocol is it? So isnt going to get through any...

    Security? file://

    Hi, If I type "file://<myIP#>" into my web browser it displays a list of my local files. Im assuming anyone else could view my files too whilst I am online. I dont have another Mac to check it on. Does anyone know how to stop it doing this? thanks, spike.

    Go Apple Go Apple !!!!!

    Nah, can't be Pippin. That wasnt conceived during Jobs' era. And Stevie boy doesnt like anything he didnt have a hand in creating! I reckon a device with a combo drive, a huge HD and a copy of iTunes and iDVD or ability to play DVD would be cool. Designed to be connected to a TV and a...

    Hardware Delema Mac or PC?

    Firstly you should not upgrade any Macs you have. Buy new ones. Upgrades are usually not worth the money. Especially given the hardware you have. So, are you saying you can get a system that is twice as fast as the best Apple has to offer, for a $1000? This seems to be your assumption. And...

    the easy way to program/use the terminal window... how work that language? how to lea

    Lets get this clear here: Do you just want to know how to use the terminal app? If so, there is no simple answer to that. However a decent unix or Linux book (there are no decent OSX books yet, to my knowledge), of which there are loads, will get you started. There is also a lot of info...

    linux vs OSX performance comparissons?

    Thanks for the input. This is an interesting link: "On a related note, the high level of performance both the Apache and Zeus servers achieved during the Mac OS X tests was very similar to their respective performance under Linux, suggesting that the Mac OS is finally a legitimate option...

    2 httpd processes?

    Hi, Why do I have 2 httpd processes? One owned by root, the other by www. Is this normal? I've been messing about trying to get it to work with PHP and MYSql and reinstalled a few times so i may have messed it up. Also how do I check that I have DSO support enabled? Im kinda new...

    linux vs OSX performance comparissons?

    Hi, Does anybody have any Linux vs OSX performance comparissons? The reason I ask is: a) Everybody seems to moan how slow OSX is, but most of that seems to be moans about the gui. I'd like to know how quick it is as, oh say, a web server or file server. b) My buddy, who is a big Linux...
