    Bonjour wont start
    Okay I just purchased a Macbook Pro in January with Leopard. This is my first Mac computer in about 15 years so I'm really new to troubleshooting on it.

    When I first booted up my macbook in Jan I started connecting with AirPort to my Home LAN and then tried to use bonjour to be able to access my other computers on my network. The connect looked like it had connected but kept giving me errors about not being able to access the other computers (the actual errors I can't remember but anyhow...)

    Now, since then I have been unable to get Bonjour to be turned on when I book up my Mac. I can't get access to Bonjour at all.

    A local Mac Tech / Distributor that I met at a conference at work told me that I was simply missing a command within the bonjour application to have it boot up automatically. Can anyone point me in the direction of where I can find that and how where to put it?

    Any other howtos about working with bonjour would be REALLY appreciated as well. I did some searching around here but wasn't able to find any with this specific issue.

    Thanks a lot.

    It should be completely automatic. That's the whole point.

    When googling, try other terms since Bonjour is just apple's word. ZeroConf, mdns, multicastDNS... i think a few others, too.

    Welcome to the forums

    Putting Bonjour aside for the moment what is it you're trying to do exactly?

    Are you trying to share printers and/or files with other machines on your network?
    What sort of other machines are on your network - macs or PCs or Linux boxes etc?
    How are they connected? Wirelessly or wired?

    If you try and describe what you are trying to accomplish then I'm sure someone here will be able to help.

    Could try this to see what's working.
    When all else fails, try everything!
    The Rep System and you.
