interesting in macyac

Post by Maraklov »

does anyone have a binary of macyac that they could distribute? i have the yac server but there are not many details along with the macyac source files.

i love the concept, i was hoping this would make it into the .6 release.

It won't be combined with the Growl releases probably. I'm not sure as to how many mac users have pc's, but there are a lot of steps to get it working.


Basically, you want to download the tarball, decompress it, run make, and then run make install

After that you can run it by running "macyac" in the terminal, and that's about it.

I can provide a binary if you like, we weren't sure anyone was really going to use it, heh.

Probably not. This was a proof of concept created at the request of the creactors friend.

Where do I download and decompress the tar? Whenever I try to make I get a ton of errors:

I'll make a binary of it tonight after I build the jaguar testing machine, if I have time. If not, tomorrow. :D

svn update and try again - there was a broken file reference in macyac.c

can someone please help me set macyac up? i have the server running (and working) on my pc, i tried forwarding the default port (10629) on my router/firewall but i don't get any growl notifications. it's not showing up as a registered app, so i think that's the problem but i can't figure out how to fix it. thanks.

The machine with the modem must be the machine running yac server, and it must have a land line hooked up to its modem setup with caller id service. This was really made as a proof of concept, the person who created it doesn't even have a land line with caller id.

I'm not sure where to go with this.

well that blows, i'd really like to get caller id growl notifications. yac works fine on my pc (it has the modem and caller id) and it appears that macyac is listening to the right port, so it might be that my firewall is still blocking the port, even though i tried forwarding it. it was worth a shot asking anyway. thanks.

Ya, 10629 is the correct port.

Is your mac on the same subnet as the windows box? I'm not sure why you are trying to port forward in this situation, maybe explaining your network setup could help.

they're on the same network, yeah. basically, same router- my pc is wired and my powerbook is wireless, both on static ips. the only reason i was trying to port forward was because i couldn't get macyac to work. i admit i don't know much about that, but it's worked for me before when i had issues. does it help to know that i have norton internet security on my pc? it used to block a lot of my network traffic, though i can't remember exactly what it was i changed to get file sharing between my mac and pc going again.

any other ideas? i'll gladly throw some more specifics down if it means i can get this thing working.

Can you turn off the norton security stuff, and check if the xp firewall is running, if you have windows xp. You can do that from properties of your network connection in the control panel.
