seems I have a problem on Macs using Mavericks when using [mxj net.maxhole]...
If I leave my "normal" (home) network on , it works. However, when playing (and using multiple computers) I like to "create a network" - I've been doing this for years. When I do it on my macs (2 of them) running OSX Mavericks it does not work. When I use a mac running OS 10.6.8 it works...
what I do :
_create a network
_go intonetwork preferences and choose to set up the TCP/IP manually
_I give the IP adress 169.254.230.30 (my different macs have almost the same IP except for the last numbers which are 10 20 30 etc...) and then 255.255.0.0 - and I say OK
_open max (latest max6)
_open the help file for mxj net.maxhole
_change the value of the input numbox
_ERROR message : "net.maxhole : io error.java.io.IOException : Network is unreachable
works in os 10.6.8, does not in 10.9.2, in both cases latest max
