Apple breaks NC/Host check... again. Java 1.6.0_37 Update.

Apple breaks NC/Host check... again. Java 1.6.0_37 Update.

Today's Apple Java update (1.6.0_37) deliberately removes the java applet from Safari and requires the user to download a new one directly from Oracle. This new version does not appear to be compatible with standalone NC and/or host check app, however launching from the web-based login does work. Hopefully someone else will prove me wrong, not willing to try on my other machine...

Nope, I've got the same experience here.  This is not cool.

I've got case 2012-1017-1111 open with JTAC.  I'm not hugely optimistic about a quick fix, especially since we had to wait for Apple last time, and given Apple's desire to divest itself with Java updates, it's anyone's guess as to when a fix might be coming......

I've also opened BugID 12524365 with Apple.  Not that I think it will do much good - they'll say the problem is with Oracle's plugin......

Re: Apple breaks NC/Host check... again. Java 1.6.0_37 Update.

I did a system update on my MBP and host checker just sat there for a few minutes until I cancelled it...

 

I was able to pass HostChecker after loading Java directly from www.java.com.  It also worked for ProperJavaRDP.  We do not use NetConenct/Puse, so I don't know about that...

 

I have not heard from any other users at this time, so I only have one example...

 

We are running a SA2500 on 7.1R12.  I was testing from a MBP with Lion.

JTAC is saying that Mac OS X 10.8 and Java 7 are not officially supported on 7.1 code.  If I upgrade to 7.2 (and first replace my SA6000s with MAGs or SA6500s), then they will help me analyze the problem.

Java 7, oracle, requires 64-bit applications to run successfully. are you seeing this work successfully in safari (this is what e are seeing here)? network connect is 32-bit.

Yes, things work fine when we use a 64-bit browser like Safari to log in first.
