Point-to-Point, Client, Enterprise or Connect server GUI on OSX displayed improperly


A bug was introduced by Java version 1.6.0_51-b11-456-xM4508 on Mac OS X which has caused Java applications to be displayed incorrectly.

You can check your Java version by running the following command at the terminal:

/usr/libexec/java_home -v 1.6 -exec java -version 

Here is an example how the Point-to-Point GUI is affected:



  • Product: Enterprise Server, Connect Server, Point to Point, Aspera Client
  • Operating System: Mac OS X


To solve this issue, Apple has released an updated version of Java. Here are the links to manually download and install these updates:

If you are running a Java version earlier than 1.6.0_51-b11-456-xM4508, the Mac Software Update utility will update you to the fixed version, not requiring you to download the patch.
