Printing to a Printer Connected to TIme Machine when using Remote Desktop

Hi,
I am having trouble printing to a printer connected to our wireless network via Time Capsule when I am on my remote desktop connection. Printing from all other programs work. I downloaded Bonjour on our Windows based server, and it did not detect any printers. When I am connected directly to the printer, I can print when using remote desktop. Any suggestions are much appreciated.
Thanks!
Mac OS X (10.5.4)

Airport Extreme/Express do emulate Jetdirect/port 9100 printing, but that isn't what they use for printing from OS X. OS X and the Bonjour/airport software use USB port redirection, a unique and separate method.
If the HP driver supports any protocol over ethernet, it would be appletalk. Does that router server use appletalk?

  • Connecting to a Windows computer using Remote desktop connection

    I have connected a Windows 7 computer to my network using an ethernet cable to my Time Machine which is configured as an extension to my Airport network. My Mac sees the computer as shared, and I can connect to it using the name and password so I can browse files on it etc.
    Nevertheless Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection will not connect to it, saying there is a network error. It has been suggested that if I use its IP address rather than its name it may work, but how do I remotely find out what its IP address is on the Airport network? I have not found the way using Airport utility or help.
    thanks in advance...

    You are using the Mac version of RDC aren't you?
    If so, please post questions regarding it on Microsoft's own forums for the Mac version of RDC, as Apple discussions only provide support for Apple products

  • I would like to connect an external hard drive to my time machine and use it as a network drive to store itunes and iPhoto  how do i do this

    I have just purchased a new my book hard drive and would like to connect it to my time capsule and store my itunes and iphoto contentent there to free up space on my internal hard drive . Can this be done and what is the process?

    I'd like to store my Aperture /IMovie Libraries on an external hard drive.
    That is fine and recommended.. use the fastest disk you can afford.. ie Thunderbolt>USB3>FW800>USB2.
    In addition, I'd like to partition the external hard drive so that Time Machine can use it to both back up my IMac and the external library drives.
    Let me be clear.. you want to partition the one disk.. use it for TM and move your files to the external disk.. and then backup to the same disk.. You can do it.. but that is not a backup.. that is an experiment in how long you can get away with running files and backups on the same disk before you lose everything.. like Russian Roulette.. pull the trigger enough times and laws of probability will do you in.
    You must have backups on a different disk .. otherwise it is pointless.
    Can I set up a RAID 5 format for redundancy?
    No.. you can buy special USB and Thunderbolt external drives that support RAID..
    BUT that is still not a backup.. let me show why.. you make a silly move and corrupt your file in aperture.. it is not that rare.
    Raid will corrupt all copies of the files.. it is replicated across all disks.
    Delete a photo it is deleted across all disks.. you have no recovery.
    Alway, always consider RAID system one disk.. backup onto another disk.. and if the photos or movies are at all important to you.. ie your family .. make another copy and store in a relatives house.. There is no such thing as too much redundancy.

  • I recovered my back up via a wired connection. now Time Machine does not recognise older back ups wirelessly and wants to do a first back up

    I recovered a back up from my time machine via a wired connection after getting the 'white screen of death'. Now Time Machine does not recognise any back ups on the time machine when connected wirelessly and wants to do a first back up of the whole machine. How do I get my mac to recognise these older back ups? It connects to the wifi network the time machine creates fine, with the same name and password.

    I recommend the following.
    1. Reset the TC to factory.
    Universal Factory Reset.. any model TC or AE.
    Unplug your TC/AE from power or turn off at the power point.
    Hold in reset. and power the TC/AE back on..  all without releasing reset and keep holding in for about 10sec. (this is often difficult without a 2nd person or a 3rd arm).
    Release it when the status light flashes rapidly. If it doesn’t flash rapidly you have missed it and try again.
    Note..
    Be Gentle! Feel the switch click on. It has a positive feel..  add no more pressure after that.
    TC/AE will reboot after a couple of minutes with default factory settings and will wipe out previous configurations of the router.
    No files are deleted on the hard disk in a TC.. No reset of the TC deletes files.. to do that you use erase from the airport utility.
    2. Rename the TC to SMB standard.
    That means short names.. 2-20 characters but less than 10 is excellent. eg TCGenx (use number for x that is actual generation of the TC)
    No spaces.
    Pure alphanumeric. No apostrophe.
    3. Ensure IPv6 is set to link-local..
    Do the same thing for ethernet if that is used.
    4. Manually mount the TC disk in Finder.
    Use Go in the top menu.. connect to server.
    Type in
    AFP://TCname.local (where TCname is your new short name for the TC and local is default domain .. it helps using the domain I found).
    You will then find the computer either can or cannot find the network resource.. if it fails something else is wrong with the actual network and you will need to fix that.
    It will request the password if it is found.. password is public by default unless you changed it.. type in the password and check to keep it in your keychain.
    5. Delete current TM setup and redo it with the newly named TC.
    See A4 here. http://pondini.org/TM/Troubleshooting.html
    If your backups cannot be found, try B6 again, now that you actually know that the disk has been properly discovered.

    Please read this whole message before doing anything.
    This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
    The purpose of the test is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party software that loads automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, by a font conflict, or by corruption of the file system or of certain system caches.
    Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards, if applicable. Start up in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. You must hold down the shift key twice: once when you turn on the computer, and again when you log in.
    Note: If FileVault is enabled, or if a firmware password is set, or if the startup volume is a Fusion Drive or a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
    Safe mode is much slower to start up and run than normal, with limited graphics performance, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and Wi-Fi on certain models. The next normal startup may also be somewhat slow.
    The login screen appears even if you usually login automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
    Test while in safe mode. Same problem?
    After testing, restart as usual (not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of the test.

  • Normal user can't connect to Time Machine drive on another machine

    Hi guys, get the feeling I've missed something simple…
    1. Physically attached big external drive to 'server' machine
    2. Set up Time Machine to use external drive both on server and from my laptop (by mounting on desktop)
    Everything happy.
    3. On server did chgrp for the external drive to a group which user J is in
    J can see (and write to) the drive when logged into server, but not when logging into server from her laptop. I can see drive from her laptop but only when attaching to server as me.
    4. Undid 3 and tried adding her username to drive instead via Get Info. Same deal.
    So I'm the only remote user which can see the drive. What did I miss?
    All machines 10.6.1
    Cheers

    Hmm. I've not done TM backups this way, but you might try to see if it's sensitive to names this way, as it often is with Time Capsules and drives attached to Airport Extremes.
    Start with the Computer name (System Preferences > Sharing). Keep it short, use only numbers and letters -- no spaces, punctuation, or special characters. Then click Edit and make the corresponding change to the Local Hostname. This makes no sense, of course, but often works anyhow!

  • Can time machine be used to back up one external drive to another external drive?

    I use the photography program Lightroom to organize and develop digital photos.  All my photos are stored on my iMac internal drive.  The internal drive is almost full so I want to move my photos to a new external drive.  At present, I have an external drive devoted to backing up my iMac using time machine.  I have no need to change this arrangement.  I would like to use a new external drive to serve as the primary location for my pictures, which I will move from the internal drive.  Then I would like to backup that drive to a third external back up drive.  Can time machine be used to automatically back up the second drive to the third drive as well as for continuing to provide ongoing backups to my internal drive as it is currently doing?
    Thank you in advance for your assistance.

  • How to limit the amount of disk space Time Machine will use?

    On Yosemite, how do you limit the amount of disk space Time Machine will use?
    I'm using a Seagate Goflex Home 2tb drive connected to my router as a Time Machine backup drive.  I use this for three things 1)Time Machine 2) an occasional backup of  windows document subdirectory  3) backup of music and photos for long term storage.   Doing something like re-partioning the drive is not an option.  I'll just go buy another drive for time machine's sole use. In addition, using software from Seagate is not an option.  I don't want to use their software for different reasons (mainly the GoFlex home is really designed as a "media server"  which I don't use.  I, of course, use iTunes. ) On the Mac, I'm only using about 250GB total but time machine is rapidly using up space.
    Apparently using a terminal command like below, used to work,  but no longer works under Yosemite.
    For a limit of 100gb the number below would be 100 x 1024
    sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.TimeMachine MaxSize 102400
    To remove the limit, use the following command:
    sudo defaults delete /Library/Preferences/com.apple.TimeMachine MaxSize
    Now, I'm not too familiar with terminal and I'm not about ready to issue a command without knowing exactly what it is going to do.
    Is there an easier "switch" someplace or an app that does this?
    If I don't limit the size, at some point there will not be any space left for windows backups and additional photo and music files.

    Hmm- added "sudo" and there was no error reported:
    sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.TimeMachine MaxSize xxxxxx
    I guess we'll see.

  • Any way to force Time Machine to use existing backup after inheriting?

    Hi,
    The hard drive in my iMac failed last week, and a replacement drive as well as a new logic board were installed.  I installed OS X onto the new drive and then used Setup Assistant to recover all data from my Time Machine backup.  Of course, once everything was back in place, Time Machine wouldn't recognize the backup as its own (per Pondini's site, this is because the logic board replacement makes Time Machine think it's a whole new computer).
    To resolve this, I issued the Terminal command to inherit a backup, but this wasn't enough so I also issued the command to associate a backup with the computer.  This seemed to work, and I was able to kick off a new backup.  Time Machine did a complete scan and determined that it needed to back up everything on the computer as new.  Because there's not enough space on the Time Capsule, it then started deleting old backups, one after another, until I noticed what was going on and stopped it after a couple hours.
    So my question is this: is there a way to get Time Machine to use the old backup data to do an incremental backup?  I'm not sure why it thinks it has to save everything; I could see it saving a copy of the OS, since that was installed from scratch, but all the user account data has been restored from backup so it should match what's in Time Machine.  If there's no way to do this then I guess I'll just delete the Time Machine archive and start over, but for versioning purposes it would be nice to have the old Time Machine archive data.
    Thanks!

    Thanks Linc.
    What happened is I needed to retrieve something from Time Machine prior to starting a backup (the first backup after restoring everything).  However, Time Machine wouldn't connect to the Time Capsule, so that is why I used the tmutil commands.  Probably if I had instead started a backup then it would have asked me if I wanted to inherit.
    Well, if there's no way to avoid a full copy then I guess I'll delete the archive and start over.
    Thanks again for your help.

  • Can Time Machine be used as a normal router?

    Sorry my ignorance on this type of Apple's products.
    My question is simple:
    Can Time Machine be used as a router? I know it backs up files, but I'm not sure about this function.
    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, it does function as a "normal router".
    In addition to its ability to function as a "normal router" (ie a device to share a cable/DSL internet connection) the Time Capsule will also:
    1. function as an a/b/g/n wireless access point
    2. network attached storage device, for Time Machine backups as well as general purpose file storage
    3. point of attachment of one or more USB printers, which can be shared with all computers on the network
    4. point of attachment of an external USB hard drive, for storage space additional to the built in hard drive

  • Do I need to pause Time machine when I install Aperture 3 ?

    do I need to pause Time machine when I install Aperture 3 ?

    If I had to anticipate when TM was about to run and then quit Aperture I'd really be disinclined to use it.
    Not always, but you have to give TimeMachine a chance to make at least once a full backup. If Aperture or iPhoto are open, when Time Machine is running, you will only get incremental backups. I cannot find the corresponding Aperture document right now, but see this:
    iPhoto '11: Back up your iPhoto library
    Important:   Time Machine can’t do a full backup of your iPhoto library when iPhoto is open. To ensure that Time Machine does a complete backup of your library, quit iPhoto periodically before backing up.
    To restore photos, quit iPhoto, open the folder containing your iPhoto library, and then open Time Machine.
    I noticed recently, that TM had never made a full backup of one of my Aperture libraries and was a bit scared, because I am relying heavily on TM. So I try to remember to quit Aperture before connecting my backup drive. It is not dramatic, if I do not do it everytime, but I make sure, I get a full backup of each library at least once, after I created it.
      Early versions of TM had a problem where if Aperture was running and TM did its backup there was a chance the whole library would be backed up rather then just the changes but I thought this was fixed in later versions of TM and/or Aperture.
    You are referring to this, right?
    Mac OS X v10.5, 10.5.1, 10.5.2: Time Machine may back up the entire Aperture Library each time
    In Mac OS X v10.5 through 10.5.2, Time Machine may perform a full backup (rather than incremental) of the Aperture Library, resulting in heavier-than-expected disk usage for Time Machine backups.
    This can happen if the Aperture library is included in Time Machine backups and a backup occurs while Aperture is running.  In this situation, Time Machine excludes the Aperture library from a backup while the application is running, but backs up the entire library once Aperture quits, rather than just the changes since the previous backup.
    Resolution
    Download and install Mac OS X v10.5.3 or later. Afterwards, when you use Time Machine it will perform incremental backups as expected.

  • Time machine backup using Laptop

    I use a macbook and used time machine to make a backup. My question is since I do not keep the external drive plugged in that often, Will my macbook harddrive use up alot of space keeping the backup data from time machine when my external drive is not plugged in? I probably will only connect the external drive once a week. Thanks!

    No, you'll just not have hourly/daily backups of stuff you change while disconnected. When you connect, it'll send files changed since you disconnected to the Time Machine partition. This is mentioned specifically in the web documentation, "it's great for notebook users".

    Alway, always consider RAID system one disk.. backup onto another disk.. and if the photos or movies are at all important to you.. ie your family .. make another copy and store in a relatives house.. There is no such thing as too much redundancy.

  • Copy Time machine backup using a different Mac

    A friend has a Time Machine backup from an iMac that he sold some time ago. He's concerned that the drive might fail so wants to make a copy of the backup, but doesn't have a Mac at the moment. So he'd like to use my MacBook to copy his backup drive. The backup is about 400GB, my HD is 256GB and he'd like to copy it to a new 1TB drive.
    All the answers that I can find to similar questions assume that the Time Machine backup belongs to the Mac making the copy, in this case it doesn't. So is there a way to copy a Time Machine backup using a Mac that wasn't used to create the backup?
