Activate Back To My Mac using a Script or Command Line
The VPN software program I make use of for job (IPSecuritas) needs me to switch off Back To My Mac to start it's link, so I regularly switch off Back To My Mac in order to utilize my VPN link (the program does this for me). I neglect to transform it back on nonetheless and also I would certainly enjoy to recognize if there was something I can run (script, command) to transform it back on.
There is no sustained means to do this. Having claimed that, you can do it making use of
[email protected]:~$ sudo scutil > set Setup:/Network/BackToMyMac > d.add <YYY> <XXX>.members.btmm.icloud.com > set Setup:/Network/BackToMyMac > quit [email protected]:~$
<YYY> with the UID of the customer account on the system (for most individuals with solitary account that is 501), and also
<XXX> with your iCloud account number. If you do not recognize that you can examine your dns - sd enrollments:
[email protected]:~$ dns-sd -E Looking for recommended registration domains: DATE: ---Wed 22 Aug 2012--- 9:11:04.789 ...STARTING... Timestamp Recommended Registration domain 9:11:04.789 Added (More) local 9:11:04.789 Added icloud.com - > btmm - - > members - - - > <XXX>
The last line will certainly detail your iCloud customer number. I assume they are all 8 figure numbers, at the very least my own is.
