You don't need to be a UNIX geek to edit your UNIX configuration files. You just need a little TMA. We consider TMA to be the Missing OS X Utilities - because it allows you to edit important configuration files (like restricting user access to ftp and telnet, etc) in a user friendly graphical interface.

Features:
  • graphical user interface which allows you to inspect, edit, change, and create configuration files such as: hosts.allow, hosts.deny, motd, shells, ftp users, ftpchroot, ftpwelcome (and others!)
  • enables/disables services in the inetd.conf file
  • TMA databases
What's New
Note: This is an interim release to provide Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar compatibility (It is also compable with Mac OS X 10.1). A major release is in the works and due shortly. The major update will require Mac OS X 10.2.
  • If you are running a preview or previous release of TMA and copy the release TMA over and replace the old copy, you will lose your revision history and ip filters database. The History and Filters databases lives inside the TMA bundle. If you want to retain your old history or filters we recommend that you rename the old TMA.app to OLDTMA.app. This will preserve the history. You can then use the new option from the File menu to copy the old data into your new
  • Changed Preferences dialog to make it more like our other Cocoa products, including a new registration panel and sw update panel. The new registration panel makes it much easier to enter your key. You may have to reenter your key and save preferences after upgrading.
  • Changed startup script generator to allow for the differences in startup operation between Mac OS X 10.1 and Mac OS X 10.2. If you already have startup scripts for TMA Monitor or IPFilters use the new TMA to remove and then re-install them.
  • Jaguar has it's own built-in firewall editor (prefs sharing panel) so don't use both. Use only one method to manage your firewall. The Jaguar built-in editor will not allow you to restrict servers to any specific network. With it it is all or nothing.
  • Reordered some of the tool menu options. The ones not supported in this release have been removed but they will reappear in the upcoming major release.
  • Added some new firewall rules for new Jaguar network features. These are disabled by default. You will not see these new rules if you restore an old rule set from a previous TMA.
  • The e-mail alerts now have three transport/delivery options. The default is to use "sendmail". If you have installed and are using Postfix you may need to use option two (postfix) or option three which is "/usr/bin/mail". Please contact us via email for additional help!

This software is about the worst I have ever used. You use it once then forget about it until you need to remove a setting and BAM! it is locked out and you can never register it. Try and contact the manufacturer and they will insult you

DON'T install this piece of junk on 10.2.5 it kills your connection! Unless you want to go through and edit all your bsd connection files afterwards I recommend staying away from this if you have 10.2.5 installed
[Version 10.1.6]

  • enables/disables services in the inetd.conf file
  • TMA databases your updates in an encrypted format. Didn't like your changes? go back, and back, and back to a previous versions. Only limit is disk space on storing past versions.
  • TMA will not allow changes to these files without the Mac OS X Administrative authentication. (You do not need to be logged in as root to use TMA).
  • TMA understands that a sneaky trick of hackers when breaking into a UNIX system is to edit these files and grant themselves access to other services. As a service to you, TMA has a backgrounds process that monitors the state of these files and verifies them against its last saved database version. If there is not a match, HACKER ALERT! TMA will let you know.
  • TMA even allows you to spell check your Message of the Day!
