I forgot to mention that I would like to be able to fallback to the ethernet interface if the wifi interface is disabled, thanks. Trying to route add -host myshare. Hi Leo, Connecting to the same network multiple times, with the same ip addressing is confusing the OS and might give mixed results. The quick and dirty way to solve this, is to add another ip address to your server say That will assure the routing is correct.

You can use the same interface cards and same wires. I have two networks: a gigabit ethernet video editing network on a The media server is also a Mac Pro with the en0 Do I need to save it in some file for it to be permanent?

Interesting case! You could indeed add a route, so that even the corporate ip address will be reachable over the gigabit network. And reversed on the Media server: sudo route -n add -net I also have access to an unrestricted Wi-Fi.

The laptop is connected to both access points. If I change the preferred channel to en1 Wi-Fi then Skype works but I cannot browse any of the company Intranet sites. This article will assist the internet users for building up new weblog or even a blog from start to end. I connect to my local wifi, and need to connect to local FTP server. I also need to browsing the internet. Unfortunately our local internet connection is not really good. I plan to use my phone internet connection because it is faster. The question: How I can keep connect to my local FTP server, and also do internet browsing, tethering with my phone?

Reblogged this on A Passionate Techie. Can this be done? Thanks man!

I hate to admit I look for this page every time I need to add a route on my mac…. Well, according to at least one source the syntax is slightly different.

Roman 9 July at Remi Bergsma 31 July at Leo 14 April at Remi Bergsma 17 April at Remi Bergsma 3 May at Hi, Interesting case! Jacob Tomlinson 6 June at To see all of netstat's available options, type man netstat at the command prompt. This will reveal netstat's man page. You can also view an online version of the netstat man page. Netstat on macOS does not work the same way as netstat on Windows or netstat on Linux.

Using flags or syntax from those implementations of netstat may not result in the expected behavior. If the above shorthand looks completely incomprehensible, learn how to read command syntax. All available interfaces can be viewed with the -i flag, but en0 is typically the default outgoing network interface. Note the lower case letter.

Create a simple bash script

This dramatically speeds up netstat's output while sacrificing only limited information. This command will only return TCP connections on your Mac, including open ports and active ports. It will also use verbose output, listing the PIDs associated with each connection. This combination of netstat and grep will reveal open ports on your Mac.

Open ports are ports that are listening for a message. If you're not familiar with the syntax, the pipe character is used to send the output of one command to another command. We pipe the output of netstat to grep, allowing us to search it for the keyword "listen" and find our results.

Looking Up An Address On Windows

In addition to full-featured use through the Terminal command-line interface, some of netstat's functionality is also accessible through the Network Utility app. Open the app and click on the Netstat tab to access the graphical interface for netstat.

Options within Network Utility are clearly far more limited than those available through the command line. The four radio button selections simply run a preset netstat command and display the output on the screen below. The fact is that the macOS implementation of netstat doesn't include much of the functionality users expect and need. While it has its uses, netstat isn't nearly as useful on macOS as it is on Windows.

A different command, lsof, can replace much of the missing functionality. This can also be used to inspect open ports associated with apps. Run lsof -i, and you'll see a list of all the applications communicating over the internet. This is typically the goal when using netstat on Windows machines. However, the only meaningful way to accomplish that task on macOS is not with netstat, but with lsof. Displaying every single open file or internet connection is often overwhelmingly verbose.

That's why lsof comes with a number of flags for restricting results with specific criteria. There are many useful flags that expand the command's utility. The most important ones are below.

For additional reading, including more flags and technical explanations of each flag's implementation, check out lsof's man page or run man lsof at a Terminal prompt. Adding a 4, as in -i4 , will display only IPv4 connections. Adding a 6 instead -i6 will display only IPv6 connections.

The -i flag can also be expanded to specify further details. A range of ports can be specified with a dash, as it -iTCP Using -i 1. IPv6 addresses can be specified in the same fashion. The precursor can also be used to specify hostnames in the same way, but both remote IP addresses and hostnames cannot be used simultaneously. But when paired with the -i flag, -s works differently.
