Disable Promiscous Mode Authentication VMware Fusion

Disable Promiscous Mode Authentication VMware Fusion

Recently I have been doing a lot of testing and work in VMware Fusion (Version 8.1).  However everytime I power on a VM that needs promiscous mode, I am presented with a prompt “A Virtual Machine is attempting to monitor all Network Traffic” and I have to enter my password. This is starting to become frustrating, so I decided I needed to find a way to disable this Authentication request for Fusion. The easiest way is to simply enter a command in the terminal app. sudo touch “/Library/Preferences/VMware Fusion/promiscAuthorized” Make sure Fusion is closed when you run the command. Once you have run the command, close the terminal window and open the VMware Fusion app again. You will now be able to power on all your VMs without ever being prompted for a password again.

Wifi No Hardware Installed

Wifi No Hardware installed – Mac install

I updated to the latest Mac OS X today.  After the update, once the computer started up, the wifi wouldn’t work.  Couldn’t enable it.  Everytime you clicked the wireless icon you got the error WIFI No Hardware Installed. I had seen a similar issue with my Mac Mini in the past, so thought I would try resetting the NVRAM.  This has seemed to solve most issues I have experienced on Mac’s in the past. Reset NVRAM Shut down the computer. Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. Turn on the computer. Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears. Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time. Release the keys. Once the computer powers on your wireless will now be working. To find out more about […]
