In this screencast tutorial I cover how to replace the VPN service in macOS Server that will be deprecated in upcoming versions of server. I look at a free application called VPN Enabler as a way to enable the VPN service that is built into every macOS. I show you how to take your settings from macOS Server for VPN and transfer them to VPN Enabler and then start and run the VPN service to take over the service on your own Mac.

In this screencast tutorial, I start to take a look at services that can be used to replace the macOS Server services that Apple is deprecating in future releases of their server app.

In this screencast I look at an application called DNS Enabler by Cutedge Systems (https://cutedgesystems.com). This application puts a GUI interface to setting up and enabling the DNS Server that is built into macOS. I walk through how to set it up and transfer your DNS settings from macOS to the DNS Enabler.

In this screencast tutorial I cover how to set up Homebridge to connect your non Homekit compatible devices to Homekit. Being in a place where there is no one system of home automation it can be difficult to set up in integrated smart home. There is Google’s Nest, Amazon Alexa, Homekit, etc. each with its own app and ways of doing things. What if you want to buy devices that are not from the same family and want them all to work with Homekit?

Homebridge is a lightweight server that runs in the background and acts like a bridge that Homekit can connect to and then display the feature of that device so you can control them with Siri or Homekit.

In this screencast I cover the initial installation and set up of Homebridge. In future screencasts I will cover how to set up specific devices like Nest devices to run on Homekit through Homebridge. I also plan to do a series on smart home devices and how to set them up for those who want to have an integrated smart home that can be controlled with your voice, a phone or other devices.
