Airport 6.1 update breaks IPv6

0

…or not. Apple released the v6.1 update for the Airport devices including Time Machine. Unfortunately this update ‘breaks’ IPv6 is you were using an Ipv6 tunnel via HE’s tunnelbroker.net. The fix is simple. Log in to both your Airport and the tunnelbroker.net website. On the last one you should look for your ‘Routed /64’ address. Fill this address in the ‘IPv6 Delegated Prefix’ field of your Apple Airport and IPv6 is back as before.

Japanese keyboard lay-out with Remote Desktop

So, you’re the lucky owner of a Mac. But since Windows is a necessarily evil in corporate environments every now and then you need to create a remote desktop connection. If only to run Windows programs on a Terminal Server Remote Desktop Server. And then – with some Apple keyboard – these are set to Japanese (Korean / Chinese) settings.

I was struggling with this. First I thought the cause of the problem where in the Office Profiling Tools but they weren’t. Some users had problems, others didn’t. The fix was adding a registry entry to force a US keyboard lay-out.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]
 "IgnoreRemoteKeyboardLayout"=dword:00000001
