Toshiba FlashAir 2 with Flashpap configuration
#91
File permission settings is the only thing that comes to mind. With the card is in Mac's slot, make sure that "Read and Write: is set for all. This includes owner, group, world/others. I know my Windows unit would work when my Linux box wouldn't because of the file permission setting.

Hmm... after reading previous post to disable dual band and running on 2.4Ghz, it can connect again. Thanks for looking into this Red.

Using a text editor type or copy and paste the following 2 lines:

#!/bin/bash
java -jar /Path To/FlashPAP/FlashPAP.jar user=FlashPAP User Name exit=yes


Replace the "Path To" with the actual path to the FlashPAP folder.  Replace "FlashPAP User Name" with the name you used to configure FlashPAP.
Note: If the FlashPAP folder is in your "/Users/Your User Name" folder, you might try "$HOME" instead of typing the complete path.

Save the file with a ".sh" extension. (it is nothing more than symbolic).  Go to the file's properties and make it executable.

Now try to run it.

I'm hoping that a Mac user can advise if I missed something.

The Flashair transmitter is indeed extremely weak.
Keep in mind that these were developed to be used in digital cameras to eliminate the need to plug them into a USB port or transfer the card to the computer.
That is also why they are configured to default to Access Point mode rather than Station mode.

I'm running an AC2400 blowtorch and have no problems with the machines in the bedroom above the living room... but my router is also on top of the entertainment center, the antennae are only about 2ft from the ceiling.

Hi Red, stuck here: "Go to the file's properties and make it executable", how to do that? There is no option in "Get Info" to make the file executable. Overtime I double click it opens to the text editor which is the UltraEdit that I used to create it. I renamed it as Flash.sh with the below script:

#!/bin/bash

java -jar /Users/imac/Documents/FlashPAP.jar user=Spencer exit=yes

OK, After some google-foo, I found this:

Save the file with no file extension (eg. bash_file, instead of bash_file.sh)
You'll need to change the permissions. On the terminal run:
chmod +x your_bash_file

Finally, you will need to make sure OS X opens the file using the Terminal and not the application that created the file e.g. your favorite text editor.  
Choose File -> Get Info and set Open with: to Terminal.app

You should now be able to click on the script to execute it!

I hope this helps.

H-m-m-m-m; Do you have your FlashPAP files directly in your Documents folder and not in its own folder?
