Can't Connect to Mac but PC is OK

I’ve had no issues connecting my BBB to both my Macbook Pro and my Windows laptop. But, for some reason, I can’t connect to the Mac over SSH even though the Beaglebone shows up as a disk on the desktop. I have no issues communicating via PuTTY on my Windows laptop. I haven’t changed anything on the Mac but I’m seeing weird settings in the Networking preferences screen. I’ve included a screenshot.

I’ve reinstalled the drivers three or four times with no change.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

OK, I think I figured it out. I don’t know how it became corrupted but here is how I solved it:

  • In Finder, in the Menu find Go To. Go to the following directory: /System/Library/Extensions.
  • Locate, drag and drop into the Trash these two files:
  • FTDIUSBSerialDriver.kext
  • HoRNDIS.kext- Reboot the Mac
  • Plug your BBB into the Mac
  • Locate and launch START.HTM on the BeagleBone.
  • Download and reinstall the HoRNDIS and FTDI drivers
  • Eject the BeagleBone
  • Reboot the Mac
  • Plug your BBB into the Mac
  • Launch the START.HTM file.
    It takes about half a minute for the board to communicate with the Mac. Test the link by clicking on on the BEAGLE_BONE/START.htm page. Or, just launch Terminal and log into your board as you normally would.
