  • Extracting Stuffit 5 Archives in Windows [E-Maculation wiki]
    Windows discards the resource fork of Mac files which makes applications unusable in Mac OS Of course applications can be expanded inside an emulated environment but if this is not possible a solution is to use The Unarchiver for Windows together with HFV Explorer Procedure Install The Unarchiver for Windows To unpack a Stuffit archive simply go to the Windows command line and type unar k hfv archive name and you ll get a convenient folder with everything neatly arranged for copying with HFV Explorer The Unarchiver supports a whole bunch of old Macintosh formats so this should work with all flavors of Stuffit and perhaps everything else that might be out there Here s what it looks like on the command line In this case I ve copied rescue2 0 5 sit to the folder where I unzipped unar1 2 win zip from the aforementioned link Here s what it looks like in Windows Explorer Notice that there are four files that start with and four corresponding files that do not including a zero byte file corresponding to the empty data fork of the main Rescue 2 0 5 application If you subsequently use HFV Explorer to browse to

  • Wireless AppleTalk Networking with SheepShaver & Basilisk II for OS X [E-Maculation wiki]
    over the IP only wireless signal This also implies that all ethernet activity on the network can be extended over the Internet to remote OpenVPN clients Obviously the main challenge here is to set up the OpenVPN server A bridge mode OpenVPN server is an extremely powerful tool that everyone should know about It can be run using free software only and allows you to extend all layer 2 LAN communication over wireless and over the Internet The guide for setting up such a server in a Linux VM on a Mac or Windows PC is here http www emaculation com doku php bridged openvpn server setup To be clear the VPN must make use of ethernet bridging Most VPNs are the layer 3 routed type and will not work Connecting the Emulator to the VPN After connecting to the OpenVPN server set the emulator to use tap1 as its ethernet interface then bridge that interface as described in the AppleTalk guide with OpenVPN s tap0 interface instead of your ethernet interface For example the script for starting SheepShaver in OS X 10 7 and up could look like sudo path to SheepShaver folder SheepShaver app Contents MacOS SheepShaver sleep 10 sudo ifconfig bridge1 create sudo ifconfig bridge1 addm tap0 sudo ifconfig bridge1 addm tap1 sudo ifconfig bridge1 up Remote clients over the Internet must use private IP addresses for the OpenVPN server side s LAN not addresses for their own LAN in the TCP IP or MacTCP control panels Note that bridge1 is used instead of bridge0 because OS X 10 9 Mavericks and up may have a Thunderbolt Bridge interface that uses bridge0 You can use bridge1 without having a bridge0 interface In order to run the Linux VM and a networked emulator in the host OS simultaneously the host must connect to the OpenVPN server as a client and connect the emulator using the method above The regular method of bridging the ethernet interface with the emulator s TAP interface cannot be used because a single ethernet interface cannot be a member of a bridge interface in the host and a bridge interface in the VM simultaneously The second bridge to go up may not work properly You can run multiple networked emulated machines simultaneously on the same computer For example you could run multiple sheepvm files and or Basilisk II To do this use tap2 tap3 etc instead of tap1 for every additional emulated machine all added to the same bridge interface You can simply use a separate script like the one above for each emulated machine with tap1 changed accordingly Don t forget that each emulated machine must be given a unique IP address Regarding Basilisk II I ve done all this networking using only the official Basilisk II builds for OS X not the AppleTalk specific Basilisk II builds which do not stem from the official source code repository Multiplayer Games in SheepShaver and Basilisk II Besides AppleTalk services such as file sharing and

  • Bridged OpenVPN Server Setup [E-Maculation wiki]
    or when the VM is run in headless mode as a background process These features help to streamline your usage of the OpenVPN server but aren t covered in this guide Select Yes to install the GRUB boot loader use the down arrow key to choose the dev sda device and hit return When the installation is complete ensure that the Debian disc image is no longer connected to the VM no check mark under the VM s Devices CD DVD Devices menu then select Continue The VM will reboot into the newly installed Debian At the login prompt enter root followed by the root password Enter apt get install gnome core xorg to install a basic graphical user interface GUI Enter Y to continue When the prompt returns reboot the VM by entering reboot The VM will reboot into the newly installed GUI Select the user Click on the small gear icon next to the Sign In button and select GNOME Classic Enter the user password to log in Go to Applications Utilities and scroll down to select Terminal You will not yet be able to copy and paste into the VM and VM s cursor may be sluggish because Guest Additions are not yet installed Become root by entering su followed by the root password Enter apt get install gcc make linux headers uname r In the VM s Devices menu select Insert Guest Additions CD image Select Cancel on the window that pops up In Terminal enter umount media cdrom mount o exec media cdrom media cdrom VBoxLinuxAdditions run Reboot the VM by entering reboot Open Terminal and enter ls media The shared folder linuxshared should now be visible as sf linuxshared Also you will now have the ability to copy and paste into the VM The keyboard command for pasting into the Linux terminal is shift control V as seen in the terminal s Edit menu Note that the command to shut down the VM as root is shutdown h now You can also run as root apt get update followed by apt get upgrade once in a while to update your server s software OpenVPN Server Setup The instructions in this section can be used for running OpenVPN 2 3 in Debian 8 proceeding from the VM setup above or Ubuntu 15 04 uses systemd Authentication Setup with Easy RSA Open Terminal and become root You should always become root before running the commands below Install OpenVPN Easy RSA and the Linux Ethernet bridge utilities apt get install openvpn easy rsa bridge utils Copy Easy RSA to OpenVPN s directory cp r usr share easy rsa etc openvpn Now we ll make the credentials certificates and keys for OpenVPN authentication Go to Easy RSA s directory cd etc openvpn easy rsa Enter source vars followed by clean all The one important field for the following commands is Common Name If you mess up an entry for the following commands you can hit control C and re enter the command Create a Certificate Authority CA by entering build ca For Common Name enter OpenVPN CA No entry is required for the other fields Hit return to proceed through the entries This will look like Country Name 2 letter code US State or Province Name full name CA Locality Name eg city SanFrancisco Organization Name eg company Fort Funston Organizational Unit Name eg section changeme Common Name eg your name or your server s hostname changeme OpenVPN CA Name changeme Email Address mail host domain Create the server credentials by entering build key server server The Common Name will be set to server by default so no entries are required This will look like Country Name 2 letter code US State or Province Name full name CA Locality Name eg city SanFrancisco Organization Name eg company Fort Funston Organizational Unit Name eg section changeme Common Name eg your name or your server s hostname server Name changeme Email Address mail host domain Just hit return to skip the challenge password and company name and enter Y to sign the certificate and commit Generate Diffie Hellman parameters by entering build dh Now we ll create the client credentials Each client must have a unique Common Name As long as you build each key using a different word the Common Name indeed will be unique To create credentials for a client called joe enter build key joe The Common Name will be set to joe by default so no entries are required This will look like Country Name 2 letter code US State or Province Name full name CA Locality Name eg city SanFrancisco Organization Name eg company Fort Funston Organizational Unit Name eg section changeme Common Name eg your name or your server s hostname joe Name changeme Email Address mail host domain Again hit return to skip the challenge password and company name and enter Y to sign the certificate and commit You can make more client credentials now say build key jane IMPORTANT If you ever come back later to etc openvpn easy rsa to create credentials for additional clients you must enter source vars before running build key jane Do NOT run clean all again since this would wipe out your existing credentials The CA certificate and client certificates and keys will be given to the clients For now copy the keys folder to the host OS via the shared folder by entering cp r etc openvpn easy rsa keys media sf linuxshared More information on Easy RSA including information on revoking client certificates can be found at OpenVPN s HOWTO page VPN Setup Now we ll configure the OpenVPN server First you must obtain some information about your network s private IP address numbering On an OS X host open System Preferences and go to Network On the left select the active interface Ethernet click Advanced and select the TCP IP tab Look for the values for Subnet Mask netmask and Router On a Windows host this information can be obtained by running the command ipconfig without quotes in the Windows command prompt cmd exe Default Gateway is the router s address You will also need to know your broadcast address which is simply the first three octets of your subnet plus 255 Finally decide on a free IP address on your network which will be assigned to the Linux VM This guide will use the following example private IP address numbering adjust this to your numbering Free IP address for Linux VM 192 168 5 100 Netmask 255 255 255 0 Broadcast address 192 168 5 255 Router s IP address 192 168 5 1 We ll use the text editor nano to create a script called openvpn bridge that performs the Ethernet bridging Enter nano etc openvpn openvpn bridge Copy and paste the following script into that empty file bin sh Define Bridge Interface br br0 Define list of TAP interfaces to be bridged for example tap tap0 tap1 tap2 tap tap0 Define physical ethernet interface to be bridged with TAP interface s above eth eth0 eth ip 192 168 5 100 eth netmask 255 255 255 0 eth broadcast 192 168 5 255 eth gateway 192 168 5 1 case 1 in start for t in tap do openvpn mktun dev t done brctl addbr br brctl addif br eth for t in tap do brctl addif br t done for t in tap do ifconfig t 0 0 0 0 promisc up done sleep ifconfig eth 0 0 0 0 promisc up sleep ifconfig br eth ip netmask eth netmask broadcast eth broadcast sleep 1 route add default gw eth gateway stop ifconfig br down brctl delbr br for t in tap do openvpn rmtun dev t done ifconfig eth eth ip netmask eth netmask broadcast eth broadcast route add default gw eth gateway echo Usage openvpn bridge start stop exit 1 esac exit 0 Use the arrow keys to edit the script Edit the four lines beginning with eth ip eth netmask eth broadcast and eth gateway Those four variables must be set equal to the free IP address for the Linux VM netmask broadcast address and router s IP address respectively in quotes as shown Edit only those four lines Press control X then Y to accept changes and return to save the file Entering ls should now show the file openvpn bridge in the list of files in the directory If you need to edit the script again enter the same command above used to create it The duration of one or more of the sleep commands may need to be changed depending or your version of Linux and hard drive speed The working value is usually around 1 to 10 but could be greater If after this setup is complete there is no Internet connection in the VM after booting ping google com from the Linux terminal for example then try increasing or decreasing the sleep command Advanced users can also use the command netstat nr How Linux behaves for the commands following these sleep commands seems to depend largely on the version of Linux and how busy the hard drive is The behavior can change even between minor version updates for the same major release of Debian What appears in the script above is what currently works for me This script is adapted from the bridge start and bridge stop scripts at OpenVPN s Ethernet bridging page It bridges the Ethernet interface eth0 and OpenVPN s TAP interface tap0 as members of the bridge interface br0 It also sets the Linux VM s private IP address to the free address that you chose effectively giving the server a static IP address Make the script executable by entering chmod 744 etc openvpn openvpn bridge Now we ll create the server configuration file Enter nano etc openvpn server conf Copy and paste the following text port 1194 proto udp dev tap0 ca etc openvpn easy rsa keys ca crt cert etc openvpn easy rsa keys server crt key etc openvpn easy rsa keys server key dh etc openvpn easy rsa keys dh2048 pem remote cert tls client server bridge 192 168 5 100 255 255 255 0 192 168 5 101 192 168 5 110 client to client keepalive 10 120 comp lzo persist key persist tun status var log openvpn status log log append var log openvpn log verb 3 The line around the middle that begins server bridge must be changed to match your private IP addresses Set the first and second addresses of that line to the free IP address for the Linux VM and your netmask respectively The third and fourth addresses of that line denote the private IP address range to be allocated to clients This must be set to an unused address range on your network This range ideally should be outside your router s DHCP range but it doesn t need to be As can be seen in this example ten addresses are allocated ending with 101 through 110 More information on the server configuration file can be found at OpenVPN s HOWTO page and the OpenVPN 2 3 manual Port Forwarding Putting the VM aside for a bit in your router s settings you need to forward OpenVPN s port to the Linux VM s private IP address The port chosen in this example in server conf above is UDP port 1194 the default for OpenVPN Therefore for this example we would forward public and private external and internal UDP port 1194 to the private IP address 192 168 5 100 Final Settings in the VM We need to tell OpenVPN to make use of our openvpn bridge script Enter nano lib systemd system openvpn service Copy these two lines ExecStartPre etc openvpn openvpn bridge start ExecStopPost etc openvpn openvpn bridge stop Paste the two lines at the bottom of the Service section so that its last three lines look like WorkingDirectory etc openvpn ExecStartPre etc openvpn openvpn bridge start ExecStopPost etc openvpn openvpn bridge stop Exit and save Reboot the VM by entering reboot The OpenVPN server will be running at boot i e no user login is required Basic Testing Verify that the br0 and tap0 interfaces are up by entering ifconfig When the OpenVPN server is running the br0 interface will have the IP address that you chose for the Linux VM Check the OpenVPN server status by entering systemctl status openvpn server service Stop the OpenVPN server by entering service openvpn stop Entering ifconfig again should show the network interfaces back to normal no br0 or tap0 with the eth0 interface now having the IP address Start or restart the OpenVPN server by using start or restart instead of stop in the command above Note that the startup process will take approximately as long as the duration of the sleep command in the openvpn bridge script Again the OpenVPN server will always start at boot OpenVPN Client Setup Client Configuration Create a plain text file in a program such as TextEdit in OS X or Notepad in Windows For the client joe copy and paste into that file the following text client dev tap0 proto udp remote PUBLIC IP ADDRESS 1194 persist key persist tun ca ca crt cert joe crt key joe key remote cert tls server comp lzo verb 3 PUBLIC IP ADDRESS must be replaced with the public IP address of the server side Google what s my ip on the server side to get this address A client already on the server side could use the private IP address of the Linux VM instead of the public IP address Tunneling non IP protocols such as AppleTalk and IPX over wireless is one reason to do this Clients over the Internet must use the public IP address The cert and key lines must be changed to match the file names of the crt and key files for any given client Save the file as joe conf and give ca crt joe crt joe key and joe conf to the client Zipping them together is easiest More information on the client configuration file can be found at OpenVPN s HOWTO page and the OpenVPN 2 3 manual Mac Client Software Tunnelblick For OS X clients use Tunnelblick Be sure to get the correct version for your version of OS X which could be the beta release When it asks for configuration files after you install it just quit Tunnelblick uses files with a tblk extension For the client joe place the files ca crt joe crt joe key and joe conf into a folder called whatever you want to call that VPN connection say Home VPN tblk Double click that file to add it to Tunnelblick s list of connections Tunnelblick appears at the right side of the menu bar as a tunnel icon Go to VPN Details select the connection on the left and set Set DNS WINS to Do not set nameserver Select Advanced and under Connecting Disconnecting uncheck Check if the apparent public IP address changed after connecting since this is unnecessary for this type of setup the public IP address will not change Exit the menus With the OpenVPN server running click the tunnel icon and connect To get back to the individual client files right click on the tblk file and select Show Package Contents If you want to change any of the client files you must reload double click the tblk file again after making the changes However to quickly change the client configuration file without having to reload go to VPN Details highlight the connection in the list on the left click the gear icon below the list and select Edit OpenVPN Configuration File The client doesn t need to keep the client files after the configuration is created Windows Client Software Securepoint OpenVPN Client For Windows clients the Windows version of OpenVPN can be used but I recommend the Securepoint OpenVPN Client which is very easy to use When installing select Mangagement for the starting context Select Yes for saving user credentials Run the desktop shortcut right click the shield icon in the taskbar and select Show profiles Click New and give the VPN connection a name Enter the public IP address of the server port 1194 and protocol UDP For the client joe point Root CA to ca crt Certificate to joe crt and Key to joe key Leave Server certificate unchecked Click Next Next and Finish Open joe conf with WordPad if it was written in OS X or Linux select all and copy In Securepoint right click on the VPN connection s name select Quick edit delete everything and paste Now you can connect The client
