comment Multicast hostname lookups on OSX
what do you get from entering scutil --dns? and how about showing a dig or nslookup that isn't working for you...

comment How does one escape the “ ` ” (accent grave/backtick) in a path?
the backtick is - visually - less disruptive (for me), and has less inherent semantic baggage when re-purposing it as a sort delimiter.

awesome. I guess i'll choose this answer because it's nice to have two ways to do it. either way you can also use this technique locally, using just one slash, or for the slash-averse, NO SLASHES and simply the single-quote technique around the problematic file or directory.. thanks!

comment How can you force a Mac Pro's “Ethernet 2” link to UP, without a cable attached?
I'm tempted to accept this answer, as I bet it would accomplish what I want... But I haven't had time to buy / make one of these things to test it, so I'll wait until then to do so. Hopefully a solution that doesn't require a hacky hardware intervention will manifest itself before then...

comment Is it possible to separate Routing/NAT in conjunction with an internal DNSMasq host providing DNS/DHCP?
Right... But will that be enough for the router to perform it's port mapping functions, etc... Traditionally, the Router has been performing those forwards based on static private allocations in it's own configuration... How can those same forwards be specified if the router isn't handling that address space's reservations? Would it be able to handle the dynamic port translation, but not static, possibly? DNS is not the issue, it's the routing / forwarding that seems iffy.

comment Catch-all ACL attributes via CLI for Mac OS X?
this works well, but didn't apply Write:Delete Subfolders + Files, Inheritance:Apply to Subfolders, and Inheritance:Apply to Enclosed Files. Is it just a matter of adding those "variables"? Do you know what they would be?

comment How can you force a Mac Pro's “Ethernet 2” link to UP, without a cable attached?
When i try that, i get cannot open at -e line 1. I tried creating a simple perl script, #!/usr/bin/perl system "ifconfig tun0 10.0.0.1 10.0.0.0 netmask 255.255.252.0"; but that gave me the familiar ifconfig: interface tun0 does not exist as you can read here, there are some serious issues with tuntap on os x that make it fundamentally difficult to implement and use reliably in the same ways as is done on regular linux.

I have tuntap (use it for miredo tunnels), but there is no tunctl on mac os x, so how is one supposed to bring UP a virtual interface? Even with OpenVPN installed, there doesn't seem to be a command to add a persistent vNIC at whim, and that sticks without a vpn conection active..

Botched that last post... Any scenario in which you may want to run multiple instances of a service - or type of service on the same port/ports, internal proxying, etc. Or a different way it rears it's head... TASK: I want to run a dns/dhcp/router/whatever on a VMWare guest. CASE: The WAN connection is a cable modem that issues DHCP lease based on MAC address ISSUE: It is not possible to allow the VMWare guest to "use" the port unless you "turn on" IPV4 addressing within Mac OS X, which will ultimately interfere with the ability to consistently acquire the WAN address from within the VM.
