  4. Hi all, So here's a challenge to my trusty osx86 thinkers. I am in an environment where i am behind an MS ISA Server that only allows outgoing HTTP port 80 and HTTPS port 443. And I want to remote desktop to my home computer. Windows XP Workstation --> ISA Server --> Internet --> Home Router --> Home computer (Windows 2003) I'm not sure of the best approach here... I have been using various approaches with little and no success. Either i am not doing it properly or something. 1. LogMeIn: Just in case, I have tried LogMeIn - I like remote desktop rather than remote controlling my computer for all to see. 2. HTTP-Tunnel + FreeCap: Remote Desktop --> FreeCap --> HTTP-Tunnel --> ISA Server --> Internet --> Home router and computer I have tried HTTP-Tunnel - which now supports NTLM authenication thru the ISA Server and it worked. In addition, I used FreeCap for Remote Desktop to go thru HTTP-tunnel via a different port, say 1080. But somehow, RDP/FreeCap doesnt get thru somewhere with HTTP-Tunnel and ISA Server. (This setup has worked in a non-ISA Server environment). 3. desproxy + NTLM Authenication Proxy Server Remote Desktop --> FreeCap --> Desproxy --> NTLMAPS --> ISA Server --> Internet --> Home router and computer I'm not sure this setup is right... I checked NTLMAPS logs and it gives the following header message: HTTP/1.1 407 Proxy Authentication Required ( Access is denied. ) 4. What other alternatives? Is there another application other than FreeCap I can use? Any experiences with tunnelling with ISA Server? What other approaches can be done? Anyone got a solution? Many thanks in advanced.

    How to dual boot 2 Mac OSX?

    if u view the website : http://neonkoala.co.uk/content/view/33/34/ u can edit the menu list, if u like, of the darwin bootloader... with the following options: -f - This forces rebuilding of extensions cache -s - Boots into a single user command line mode -v - Verbose, boots in text mode showing all debug info and errors -x - Boots into safe mode "Graphics Mode"="1024x768x32" - Tells VESA to boot with this resolution, the x32 is bit depth and is only compatible with VESA 3.0 and up rd=disk0s1 - Tells Darwin to boot from a certain partition specified in BSD format. Disk 0 specifies first HDD and s1 specifies first partition as 0 is the MBR. cpus=1 - Tells the system how many CPUs or cores to use, useful for Core Duo users. platform=X86PC - Can be used if problems with normal booting, ACPI is another option here -legacy - Boots OS X in 32bit mode rather than 64bit if 64bit is used due to a 64bit processor idehalt=0 - May stop stuttering <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>-v</string> <string>-x</string> <string>rd=disk0s2</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1024x768x32</string> <key>Boot Graphics</key> <string>No</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>10</string> <key>Quiet Boot</key> <string>No</string> </dict> </plist> as per above, u put in kernel flags and the options as such... and maybe that defaults...

    Mac OSX 10.4.6 to 10.4.7 Server

    u can backup your OSX now and give it a go with installing the server packages. Thats your best bet. I backup my OS X on another partition using Acronis Disk Director Server on my Windows Server 2003. It takes 10 mins to restore my OS X backup copy into the partition without playing around with creating a partition and setting it to active mode and all that... Always have a backup in hand!

    How to dual boot 2 Mac OSX?

    The darwin bootloader only lists the partitions and OS's that is installed on my second HDD where OSX resides.... But doesnt list the first or even my third HDD - all three HDDs are on IDE (primary and secondary)... I have an OSX on my third HDD as a backup... So i wonder can this bootloader be changed around like a GRUB bootloader or something...

    Katana

    /System/Library/Extensions/CallistoHAL.kext/Contents/Info.plst <key>IOPCIMatch</key> <string>0x59611002&0xffffffff</string> card no 5961 vendor no 1002 Chipset Model: Radeon 9200 Type: Display Bus: PCI VRAM (Total): 128 MB Vendor: ATI (0x1002) Device ID: 0x5961 Revision ID: 0x0001 Displays: Display: Resolution: 1024 x 768 @ 60 Hz Depth: 32-bit Color Core Image: Not Supported Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes Quartz Extreme: Not Supported I had the resolution to 1280 x 1024 but the monitor went out of sync and had to change it back to 1024 x 768.... Now i wonder how i can change the PCI bus to AGP...I mean this is an AGP card! Edit: I installed Katana 0.3a4 and it didnt detect my card again so i had to boot into safe mode and changed the vendor and card numbers. It got AGP on my stats and can only seem to work on 1024x768.. How do i know if i have software 2d acceleration?

    How to dual boot 2 Mac OSX?

    i read somewhere.. in this forum...dont have the exact page with me.. Edit: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=52954 that you can use the com.apple.boot.plist file or something that it can have the darwin bootloader menu boot up so u can select whichever OS - Mac OS X or Windows etc..
  14. Hi all, How to dual boot 2 Mac OSX's? I am running the Windows XP boot loader and have chain0 to boot into Mac OSX. What if I have another Mac OS X on another hard disk and I want to boot into that? Thanks.
  15. Hi all, I have Mac OS X 10.4.6 installed and I want to install 10.4.7 Server onto it. I have the mac_os_x_server_v10.4.7_universal_build_8k1079 DMG file and the S.N. I also have the JaS.10.4.7.Update.(Intel).zip (10.4.6 to 10.4.7 intel update) - computer is intel. Questions are: Do I update 10.4.6 to 10.4.7 first then install 10.4.7 Server? Or do I just install 10.4.7 Server over my existing 10.4.6? Another question is: How to install 10.4.7 Server? Thanks.
