Road Rage => Spam Rage => Network Rage [Panther]

Discussion in 'Apple' started by John Steinberg, Nov 26, 2003.

  1. For reasons unknown, today I can no longer use Connect To Servers Browse
    button. Click it and nothing happens. Go => Network also results in
    nothing. And I mean nothing. Nothing shows up in the console or system
    log. It's a bit like waiting for Godot. Rebooted all machines on the
    network. Result: Same nothing. Nada. Nil.

    I *can* manually enter the IP addresses in Connect To Server, and that
    works just fine, but would anyone have any clues, pointers on what might
    be amiss with Networking on this DP G4 running 10.3.1?

    Did check and repair permissions, did hurl a few silent expletives at
    the network deities, and I did try first some tough love and then an
    emotional reconciliation scene (I chewed the scenery, BTW.) Anyway,
    clues and thoughts are most welcome.

    I'm guessing it's a conflict with a service but since none have been
    recently installed, it's probably a bad guess.

    And if I can whine for just a wee second, how @#$%^&* long before OS X
    can do some rudimentary and reliable networking, Steve and Avi!!

    Thanks, I feel better now.

  2. My problem was evidently created by the installation of the latest
    vers. of PithHelmet http://culater.net/osd/PithHelmet/PithHelmet.html
    Removal of it and all related files has returned all of the above back
    to proper functionality. I'll send a note to the developer, and Steve
    and Avi, sorry about the rant.



    Don't you just love happy endings?
