    Sounds good! We might just write things up as we get you going on this…

    [B]How to best name this article?[/B]
    EDIT: Just found this in the wiki: [url]http://fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/FOG_on_a_MAC[/url]
    Could be the starting point…

    Uncle Frank, please check your PM.



  • [quote=“Uncle Frank, post: 42938, member: 28116”]Sooner or later we’ll see people trying to use FOG for imaging Mac OS X clients as well. AFAIK there is no wiki entry on how to get this working. Most of the information is provided on the web but it’s all over the place. I’d offer to write things up on how to run Apple computers with FOG if you think it’s worth the effort…[/quote]

    I’m going to be messing with this soon.

    If I can get it working, I’ll write up a detailed WiKi page on it.

    Only community managers grant edit access to the wiki to new users, and one has not been around yet to approve your request. There is no policy to restrict access beyond that. Wolfbane8653 has taken it upon himself to maintain the wiki and has been working very hard to correct it’s issues, but there is a lot to do, due both to a it’s history of editors of and recent radical changes in the software.

    AH thanks. Don’t know how I missed that.

    I do not have wiki user management rights since I am the baby on the dev team. Usually a week or so the manager will read this and grant access.



  • [quote=“Wolfbane8653, post: 42275, member: 3362”]What is the typo here? Are you really going to rag on me b/c there is no comma? I didn’t even write this page.[/quote]

    As you saw per the directions of the wiki I asked for wiki access, so I could fix obvious issues. There maybe a policy of not granting access anymore, and instead of that you seem to get annoyed when I mention issues.

    If you don’t want me to help improve the wiki, please say so directly, and I’ll stop immediately pointing out things.

    The typo is the word " riquired." whould should be “required.”

    [quote=“Berend de Boer, post: 42251, member: 28367”]PS: the even better thing to do would be for the FOG Client to setup these rules upon install![/quote]

    That will be done with the NEW CLIENT INSTALL that is in development as I type this.

    [quote=“Berend de Boer, post: 42245, member: 28367”]Thanks! Have more. On [URL=‘http://www.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/FOGCrypt’]the FOGCrypt page[/URL] I would like to point out that you can run FOGCrypt on Linux as well with:

    [CODE]mono ./FOGCrypt.exe[/CODE]

    If it complains about mscorlib.dll, run it as:

    [CODE]MONO_PATH=/usr/lib/mono/4.5 mono ./FOGCrypt.exe[/CODE][/quote]

    mono is not installed by default by fog I have entered this information but I have also shown that mono must be installed before hand.

    [quote=“Berend de Boer, post: 42248, member: 28367”]And on [URL=‘http://www.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/Managing_FOG#FOG_Tray’]the troubleshooting page[/URL]: there is some formatting issue I think: the phrase “If the PXE boot does not work” is probably meant as an header, has nothing to do with the preceding issue.[/quote]
    It’s kind of obvious that I havent finished sprucing up this page yet. I stopped just before Users. See that there is no icons or cleaner formatting? Remember we use our spare time to put into FOG. I assure you that wiki edits occur daily.

    I believe “mydomain” should be left out since the latest versions.[/quote]

    Yes and no. 1.1.0 it is proper but in 1.2.0 and 1.3.0 is should just be username. I have just changed to.

    " 7. [FONT=sans-serif][COLOR=#000000]Enter the user name that has access to the computer objects. You may need to include the name of your domain.

  • [quote=“Wolfbane8653, post: 42156, member: 3362”]Yes this was a bit dated but has been corrected now.[/quote]

    My suggestion is to use an environment variable, i.e.:

    [CODE]netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=“Fog Client” dir=in action=allow program="%ProgramFiles(x86)%\FOG\FOGService.exe"[/CODE]



  • And update [URL=‘http://www.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page’]the main page[/URL] to direct users to the proper thread to requests access: The “please request one in our [URL=‘http://www.fogproject.org/forum’]forums[/URL]” should link to this thread.

    [quote=“Berend de Boer, post: 42118, member: 28367”]Looking for wiki access. I’d like to make a few clarifications, for example firewall exceptions has:

    [FONT=monospace][COLOR=#000000]netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=“Fog Client” dir=in action=allow program=“C:\Program Files\FOG\FOGService.exe”[/COLOR][/FONT]

    But for 64-bit that should be “Program Files (x86)” I believe. So copy/paste of that stuff needs some car[/quote]

    Yes this was a bit dated but has been corrected now. Thank you for for reporting.
