    Terminal - Several topics

    Not necessarily. It's a shared computer and my account that I use isn't the administrator, thus I don't have administrative powers. I don't understand why sometimes I can use that osascript to change the volume, and sometimes I can't. It doesn't make sense.

    The only problem is I don't have an administrators password so I can't download anything, even on my account. I've recently run into this error a few times while connecting to my friends via a universal account. osascript -e 'set volume 7' _RegisterApplication(), FAILED TO establish the default connection to the WindowServer, _CGSDefaultConnection() is NULL. Any help?

    That works, however I never get every IP, I only get a few. Currently I'm on a laptop and when using this all it returns to me are a few of the computers around me that are connected via ethernet cords (Desktops) it doesn't return to me any computers using the wifi (laptops) Anything I can do to return more adresses?

    Is there a way to search for all IPs connected to a Network? Currently the only way I know to find IPs is through System Preferences, but is there a way to do it directly through terminal so I can just locate which other computers are on my network?

    Automator

    I want the computer to automatically take a screen shot every time I open up certain folders. Is there a way to do that in automator? I have figured out how to do the screenshot, but it just takes it of automator and not the folder when I open it.

    Automator

    Ok I'm new to Automator and wondering how to create a simple action. I want the computer to take a screen shot and demand a password when I open up certain folders (Applications folder, Documents folder) Any help? Thanks.

    Ichat Messages

    My "friend" knows a way to make messages appear while conversing through Ichat. He manually types the message yet it appears in the center of the textbox (similar to how the offline messages work) saying things such as: Juan is away Juan just ate pizza Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks Edit: Figured it out

    If he knows the username and password logged onto the computer he would be able to ssh. SSH wasn't turned off (WHackTheMac and I go to the same school) the schoolwide account (same username/password) was locked from being used by restricting access on library computers to personal accounts only (individual username/password)

    You can run them as a script if you save them in a document. Excellent, I will give that a try, thank you.

    Passwords

    My friend and I have created a game where we will swap computers until both of us have cracked the others passwords. However we have run out of options. Currently we know enough about eachother and have agreed to exclude numbers, and make the passwords fairly obvious, however this has grown old. We want to up the ante, but have no idea how we will crack passwords once we throw in numbers, can anyone help? Any programs or such? Thanks!

    Well WhackTheMac I don't have a sample unfortunately however the ones I have written, that I have shown you, were just simple commands following eachother such as: sleep10 open URL sleep 20 say Hello

    Is there a way to prepare a script and then run it through ssh? I have tried creating a script on my computer, but I can't run it through ssh as the script is not on the computer I am controlling, currently I just have to type the script and then copy and paste it into terminal. Thanks

    I will try the logout/restart commands, hopefully sudo isn't needed as I don't have permissions for that. How exactly do I make a script? Currently I just type up what I want to do in TextEdit then copy and paste it into the terminal window I am working in. Edit: I opened up Terminal help and figured it out! I feel bad asking all these questions, is there anywhere I can read that will help me understand terminal/the terminal language better? Thanks

    Terminal - Several topics

    The computer name as in the login name used? I am confused where the "All section of the Network part of finder" is? What is the command to log the computer I am controlling out? Or even restart the computer? I'm afraid if I type "restart" it will restart my own computer. Thanks for all the help so far though, have tested most of it out on my computer, can't wait for tomorrow. Edit: Was just thinking about that nohup command you gave me. I ran this nohup osascript -e 'set volume 7' sleep 5 say Hello dude man homie sleep 5 open http://www.youtube.com/ The error returned was -nohup: illegal option -- e usage: nohup [--] utility [arguments] [Process completed] If I want to run that entire script through even after I quit Terminal and log out of my computer what do I need to do?

    I guess they were just trying to make it look harder so people couldn't copy. Is there a way to delay that say command so I can type nohup say -f filename.txt, quit terminal and then 30 seconds later it starts? What I am asking is if I am sitting at a computer 2 spaces away from the computer I want to ssh to is there a way to find out the IP without physically touching the other computer? I just opened up terminal and tried to have it say a file for me. Does it not work with Word documents? Here is what I tried say -f Desktop/here.doc Speaking failed: -1 Thanks for the quick response!
