Activation of Office for MAC offline
us flag

I have a problem activating Office for Mac on an offline laptop. When I use the installer for Office for MAC it asks for a email address to activate Office but of course I don't have internet so I can't do that. I do however have the activation code for Office so I'm wondering if it's possible to get an installer that doesn't need an email to activate?

netstat reports UDP ports with no owning process
cn flag

When I run netstat -avp udp I get a slowly growing number of ports. It grows about 100 an hour but the rate varies considerably.

When I close the process, the ports do not disappear from the list. Similarly when I kill the process. Restarting the machine obviously resets the list but it just grows again. I have multiple machines showing the same symptom.

The majority of the ports listed are assoc ...

My Mac's password refuses to change
jp flag

I work for a large corporation, and I work on a Macbook Pro. The company has a fancy arrangement where the password I use to connect to the VPN is "synched" to the password I use to log on to my laptop.

My Mac password refuses to "synch" to the VPN password. I have set it several times by going to Preferences -> Users -> Change Password, but it won't actually change. If I lock my screen  ...

Secure connection to web-/mailserver fails under MacOS/iOS
am flag

I am desperate: I moved two domains from one server to another which was running smooth. I secured both domains (web & mail) with Letsencrypt certificates. Now the owner of these domains complained about a not working mailserver. But this could not be, because other domains could send and receive e-mails. While troubleshooting, I noticed that no web pages could be retrieved from my server on macOS o ...

Register Mac to Azure AD without enrolling in Intune
mf flag

I am looking to find out if Mac devices can be registered (not joined) to Azure AD. I've tried to research on both Google and this site, but all information I was able to find pertained to joining Azure AD and/or enrolling the device in Intune.

cn flag

On a regular VM - Vagrant Box (LAMP) on Mac OS, while making a trivial call, there is a 5 Seconds DNS Lookup delay. Is there any reason for it or solution?

Already installed BerlinVagrant/vagrant-dns and added the --natdnshostresolver1 --natdnsproxy1 on settings. The Responses are quicker while calling within 3 seconds. If longer time between, there is a fix 5s timeout.

Where I work as a sysadmin, we have an old Macintosh IIvx that is the only one left in the world with an obscure program on it that will cost the company a ton of money if they can't use it. Well, the dreaded day has come.

Yesterday, it wasn't booting and just showing a black screen, there appeared to be damage on the PSU, so we replaced the PSU with another one we found that had a broken fan. Re ...
