Hi Mac users,

Recenty i have noticed a influx of new mac users on our site (which i love) so... Im looking for a experienced mac person to help and write some small tutorials for the site...

example:
- How to Network a XBOX and MAC
- How to FTP from MAC to XBOX using a FTP CLIENT
- How to share drives using a MAC to your XBOX.
etc etc etc

please someone out there come along and read this.. You dont need to be a expert but just know how to setup these things on a mac.. Even if you only know how to network a xbox and mac that will be fine as we have no idea.

shoot me a pm or email from the website at anytime guys and enjoy your modded xbox.

Post subject: Enabling Mac Sharing
Reply with quote
 
This is v long winded SOZ--- straight out the book.
Enjoy


Set up user accounts

Users connecting to Windows File Sharing must have user accounts on the Mac OS X computer that is sharing. There is no guest access. Any person who already has an account on the Mac OS X computer can use his existing account. You must log in to the Mac OS X computer with an administrator account to set this up. The steps differ for new and existing users.

For new users

1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
2. From the View menu, choose Accounts.
3. Click New User (10.2) or the "+" button (10.3).
4. Enter the Name and Short Name for the user who will log in from Windows.

The user's short name is exactly how the user will enter their name when they log in to Windows File Sharing. The short name is always lowercase.

For users of Windows 98: If you log in to Windows 98 with a username, make sure it matches your Mac OS X account's short name. If you do not log in to Windows 98 with a username, you will need to create a new Windows 98 username that matches the account short name in Mac OS X. For more information on using Windows operating systems, please see Microsoft documentation or contact Microsoft for further assistance.

5. Enter the user's password.
6. 10.2 only: Click the checkbox for "Allow user to log in from Windows".
7. 10.2 only: Click OK.
8. Quit System Preferences.



For existing users

Note: Mac OS X 10.2 requires these steps, but users of Mac OS X 10.3 may not need any of them. If an existing Mac OS X 10.3 account can't log in from Windows, just perform steps 1, 2, 3, and 9.

1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
2. From the View menu, choose Accounts.
3. Select the account.
4. Click Edit User.

If you're editing your own account (the logged-in user), you must take the additional step of typing your password in the Current Password field and then pressing Return. This is not required when editing other accounts.

5. Select the checkbox for "Allow user to log in from Windows".

When selecting "Allow user to log in from Windows" for any account other than your own, you see the message, "To enable SMB support password reset is required. Do you want to reset password?" Though this message does not appear for your account when you're logged in as an administrator user, it is still true. When enabling Windows login for your own account, you must change your password at the same time.

6. You are prompted to reset the password. Click OK.
7. Enter the new password, and click Save.
8. Try to log in from Windows with the selected account. If you can, then you're finished.
9. If the selected account cannot log in to Windows File Sharing on the first try, go back to that user's account and change the password again.


Specify the Windows workgroup name

The default Mac OS X SMB workgroup name is "WORKGROUP". If you did a custom installation of Mac OS X and deselected the BSD Subsystem, you may not be able to change your workgroup name, which may prevent you from sharing. This is not an issue if you did a standard installation. If necessary, reinstall Mac OS X 10.2 with the BSD Subsystem selected.

If you are sharing files between Mac and PC, make sure your workgroup names are exactly the same on both computers.

Turn on Windows File Sharing

1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
2. From the View menu, choose Sharing. The Rendezvous Name field will be used for the Mac OS X SMB host name. This is the name that appears in the Windows Network Neighborhood.

For versions 10.2 and 10.2.1 only: If a DNS reverse lookup entry exists for your computer, the DNS name will be used instead of the one entered here.

3. Click the checkbox for Windows File Sharing (located in the Service column). Network preferences says, "Windows File Sharing On".

Very Happy If Windows File Sharing service does not stay on, make sure you have a reliable network connection. Very Happy

Post subject: Setting up Mac TCP/IP
Reply with quote
 
Mac OS X

Mac OS X can hold two or more IP addresses at the same time and automatically switch between them. But for optimum performance, you need to set them up properly.

The network interface, or "port," (Ethernet, AirPort, or Modem) that connects to the Internet needs to be first in your port configurations list. This means it is the most preferred port, the one that Mac OS X looks to first when starting up and when connecting to Internet sites. The port (Ethernet or AirPort) that you use to connect to for local sharing should be second. Follow these steps:

1. Choose System Preferences from the Apple menu.
2. Choose Network from the View menu.
3. Choose the port you use to physically connect to the Internet from the Show pop-up menu. (Prior to Mac OS X 10.1, the Show menu was named "Configure".)
4. Click the TCP/IP tab.
5. This pane should already be set up as directed by your Internet service provider. If it is not, make corrections. For more specific setup information, see technical document 106796, "Mac OS X: Connect to the Internet, troubleshoot your Internet connection, and set up a small network".
6. Choose Network Port Configurations from the Show pop-up menu. (This is the language for Mac OS X 10.2 or later. In 10.1 versions, you would choose"Active Network Ports". In 10.0 versions, you would choose "Advanced".)
7. If the port you chose in Step 3 is not at the top of the list, drag it to the top. Users of portable computers may need to prioritize different network interfaces for each place that they use their computers. You may, for example, prefer Internal Modem when at home but AirPort when at work or school. If this is your case, you may wish to read more about the Location menu.
8. Locate the port you use for local File Sharing.
9. If this port is not second in the port configurations list, drag it to the second position.
10. Choose this port from the Show pop-up menu.
11. Click the TCP/IP tab.
12. Choose Manually from the Configure pop-up menu.
13. Enter these settings: Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0 IP address: 10.0.1.x The "x" in the address 10.0.1.x represents any number between 1 and 255, for example "10.0.1.2". Just be sure that each computer has a different address. Leave the router and other fields blank.
14. Click Apply Now.



Mac OS 9

If you do not have any Mac OS X computers on your network, you only need to open the File Sharing control panel and make sure that the checkbox for the "Enable File Sharing clients to connect over TCP/IP" feature is not selected. This will allow the connection to occur over AppleTalk, without interfering with your IP configuration.

If you do have Mac OS X computers on your network, TCP/IP is required for file sharing with a Mac OS X computer. This creates a need for your Mac OS 9 computer to hold two IP addresses, as Mac OS X can. The TCP/IP control panel in Mac OS 9 does not offer this option, but the underlying Open Transport software is capable of doing so. To take advantage of this feature in Open Transport, you may use third-party routing software such as IPNetrouter. Using the third-party routing software, configure the Mac OS 9 computer hold both public and private IP configurations. An example would be to set it to connect to the Internet using 56 kbit/s modem but also to hold a 10.0.1.x address. The "x" in the address 10.0.1.x represents any number between 1 and 255, for example "10.0.1.2". Just be sure that each computer has a different address.

Using a software router has the additional advantage of being able to connect two or more computers simultaneously via one dial-up account, just you can with an independent hardware router. See the documentation included with any router software.

Location manager

A final alternative available to Mac OS 9 users is Location Manager. This does not allow you to share and connect to the Internet at the same time, but it does allow you to switch quickly and painlessly between two different IP configurations. Create one location named "Internet" that is set up for your public connection, and a second location named "File Sharing" that is set up for your local 10.0.1.x address. Use the Location Manager portion of the Control Strip to switch between them. For setup information, Choose Mac Help from your computer's Help menu and search on "Location Manager".

hi lucface,

Thanks for the info mate.. Im sure it must be hard for all our MAX users to get things working since nobody has any instructions on the MAC! Hopefully HQ can change this in the near future by adding some tutorials and programs to the site.

hey forahoby, can you stick this post somewere more noticable? because its in newbie ville, it seems it will go unnoticed by possable candidates. what do you think? ( i dont meen my post. im talking about the administrator topic)

-----------------------------------------------------

if any mac programers are interested in a project. we are in desperate need of a tool that can re-sighn the encryption in the Halo 2 "mainmenu.map" file. so as to finallize patches and make them playable. i need to do alot more research on hex editing and stuff before i know how to do it manualy. there is one already for pc's called "encryptomatic signature tool". i down loaded it for my virtual pc 3 times but its corupt every time. heres a link: http://www.tf6.epgservers.net/
a guy on the halo maps forum told me i could make one and gave me this code:

-------------
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

#define SIGN_START 0x800
#define SIG_POS 0x2D0
#define INIT_SUM 0x00000000



int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
FILE * pFile;
long sum, buf;
if (argc != 2) {
printf("Invalid number of command line arguments.\n");
exit(1);
}

if (!(pFile = fopen(argv[1], "r+")))
{
printf("Error opening file.\n");
exit(1);
}

// initialize xor sum
sum = INIT_SUM;

// go to start of hash
fseek(pFile, SIGN_START, SEEK_SET);

while (!feof(pFile))
{
fread(&buf, sizeof(long), 1, pFile);
sum = sum ^ buf;
}
sum = sum ^ buf;
clearerr(pFile);
fseek(pFile, SIG_POS, SEEK_SET);
fwrite(&sum, sizeof(long), 1, pFile);
fclose(pFile);
printf("Finished writing signature.\n\n");
return 0;
}
------------------
if you can find a mac C++ compiler you can turn the code into an mac exicutable i guess

i really have no clue what to do with that. but there you go if you know what im talking about..... cause i sure dont, haha, make an excutable!

also, here is a link to a tuturial witch includes this tool in its procces,
