First, install the OVF Tool. Then, run the tool. The syntax looks like this: /Applications/VMware\ OVF\ Tool/ovftool –acceptAllEulas /path/to/file.ovf /Users/username/Documents/Virtual\ Machines.localized/vmname.vmwarevm/vmname.vmx If you see errors about virtual hardware not being supported, you can add the –lax parameter to the command line.
AirPrint is a cool technology, but what if you have printers that aren’t officially supported? Here’s how to make it work. Note that this was done on FreeBSD 10.1. This may work on other operating systems, but package installation and filesystem paths will be different.
If you are running a transparent HTTP proxy on your network, you may have trouble with running Internet Recovery and Apple Hardware Test on Macs that support it. You’ll see a “-4403D” or “-4403F” error. For some reason, Apple’s servers return a 403 when they see the “via” header that many proxy servers send. Here’s
I’ve been trying to install Mountain Lion in as a guest in Parallels 7, and I kept getting stuck at the initial grey Apple logo. To fix it, I just changed the number of CPUs to 2, and it booted right up. Other documents I’ve seen have indicated that you need to increase the video
Often times, in your Squid proxy, you may have a redirector configured – such as SquidGuard: redirect_program /usr/local/bin/squidGuard -c /usr/local/etc/squid/squidGuard.conf I ran into a problem tonight with my Roku box where SquidGuard was seeing Roku’s NetFlix access as a security threat. So, to make Squid bypass the redirector, add an ACL and a redirector-access rule:
By default, Squid sends HTTP headers on every request that can give away information about your internal network. Here’s an example of these headers: HTTP_VIA:1.1 proxyserver.local (squid/3.1.16) HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR:192.168.0.123 That’s three pieces of information you may not want to give away: The host name of your proxy server, the version of Squid it’s running, and the
Most of us don’t have native IPv6 Internet connections at home. Fortunately, it’s easy (and free) to get connected to the IPv6 Internet. Here’s how to get your FreeBSD box connected.
I spent some time thinking about backup strategy, and I decided for my purposes, I’d like to handle the staging process (getting all the files put together), and I’d like the backup solution itself to simply upload the files – but since I want to do nightly backups, I’d like the backup solution to have
For those of you who don’t know, JungleDisk is a utility that allows you to back up data to Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3). Soon, it will also allow you to use Mosso’s Cloud Files service, which is similar to S3 but hosted by RackSpace. I recently won a free subscription to JungleDisk, thanks to
Over the past few years, a major paradigm shift has occurred in how (and where) our data is stored. We’ve had data online for quite a while – ever since the first “guestbook” applications appeared on peoples’ GeoCities home pages (usually right next to the animated “Under Construction” GIF). I’m not going to discuss identity
