Issue with Skype for Business macOS with IPv6

A while ago my, Skype for Business Client on my Mac was unable to connect while I was in the Office. So I switched to our Guest Wifi and did some check (because it’s always the Firewall, and the guest network is nearly open – That is an insider, sorry!) and it just worked fine.

After joining our regular network again, the Client stopped working, on WiFi and Ethernet. The Firewall logs didn’t show anything useful. The Skype Logs itself pointed me to the right direction: Connection issues!

So I started to dig deeper and checked all the hosts Skype for Business tries to reach from the command line (Curl is your best friend in such cases). Tools like Wireshark could do the same job.

What if Apple discontinues the Mac product line?

There are are a lot rumor’s around the Internet, that might discontinues the Mac product line. Most rumor’s says, that the Mac will be phased out and will be replaced by powerful new iPad’s.

Most of these rumor’s are driven by the latest iPad Pro commercial, where a girl with iPad Pro is asking “What’s a computer?” at the end.

But what if Apple decides to discontinue the Mac product line? A question I can answer for myself very easy and quickly: The iPad (Pro) is great, but it will never replace my computer! And I know a lot of companies that see it the same way. In my case a lot of development stuff and virtualisation is a point that will keep me using a computer, for many companies I know Applications are a key asset.
Agencies or web developers (both heavy mac users) need powerful applications, like Adobes creative cloud products. I agree: There are iOS versions of some, but no way to replace the full blown desktop version of them!
