Apps to Write NTFS Drives on a Mac OS X

I believe most of the Mac user know by default Mac OS only can read from Windows-formatted NTFS drives. To write NTFS disk, you need to have 3rd party software.

When you google it, first page of google sure will show you the two best paid version of NTFS app which is Paragon NTFS for Mac and Tuxera.

If you look for free version of NTFS app, i would recommend an application called Mounty for NTFS which available for free. You can get it here right now.  I have tested this apps, it is easy to use and the performance not bad.

If you have any others good free apps, please do not hesitate to share with me. 🙂

How to install telnet on macOS high Sierra?

I just noticed that telnet was removed after i upgrade my Mac to High Sierra (10.13).

In this post, i going to show your guys how to restore telnet on my Mac OS X 10.13.

First, you need to make sure your Mac OS X already installed with homebrew. If not let’s type following command to install it:-

/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"

Reference link : https://brew.sh/

Once you have homebrew install on your Mac OS X, run the following command to install telnet

brew install telnet

MacOS Sierra: Unable to negotiate with IP X.X.X.X port 22 no matching host key type found. Their offer: ssh-dss

Issue

My latest MacOS X 10.12 release failed to ssh to network devices with the following error:

techkaki-MacBook-Pro:~ techkaki$ ssh root@10.10.10.243
Unable to negotiate with 10.10.10.243 port 22: no matching host key type found. Their offer: ssh-dss

Root Cause

OpenSSH Version 7 and above disable DSA key by default.

Solution

A) To enable the ssh-dss (DSA) key exchange algorithm  using the HostKeyAlgorithms option:

ssh -o HostKexAlgorithms=+ssh-dss  aimsadm@10.10.10.82

B) Enable ssh-dss (DSA) on ssh_config by adding HostkeyAlgorithms +ssh-dss at the end of the ssh_config file.

sudo nano /etc/ssh/ssh_config
