Applications :: ITunes 9 - Snow Leopard Firewall Ask To Allow / Deny Every Time.

Sep 9, 2009

Just upgraded to iTunes 9.0 and I'm running a clean install of Snow Leopard.

Every time I open up iTunes that stupid Firewall box asks if I want to allow/deny incoming connections.

Even if I allow, and verify it's in the list as allow, it asks everytime.

I've removed it from Firewall settings, no luck.

I've reinstalled iTunes, no luck.

OS X :: Snow Leopard Blocks Incoming Connections - Firewall Is Off?

Dec 17, 2009

I got an iPod Touch today and I'm while I was testing out some apps I noticed that I cannot connect to my MacBook Pro.

If I try to ping it I get no response. Going to the Mac's address in a browser (web sharing is on) I don't get any response either. I cannot connect to for file sharing either. I have turned off the firewall in OS X and rebooted the computer with no change. All sharing options are enabled. If I run "sudo ipfw list" I get this: "65535 allow ip from any to any".

It appears however that Snow Leopard allows connection from outside the local network, as Internet, BitTorrent, Mail etc. works as usual.

I've tried turning the firewall off in the router but connections are still blocked.

OS X :: Snow Leopard Firewall In Stealth Mode But Responding To Ping Requests?

Apr 19, 2010

I've just tried running the security test on the Shields Up! site, and I note that even though my firewall is in stealth mode (and Shields Up! reported that all the ports it probed were stealthed), it failed the test because it replied to an ICMP ping request - and yet the Snow Leopard firewall specifically states that when it's in stealth mode, it won't respond to such requests.

Applications :: Time Capsule Restores Data In 64 Bit Snow Leopard?

Jan 24, 2009

So as I understand it, Snow Leopard is completely 64-bit meaning 32-bit apps will not run. How will Time warp/time capsule restore apps from 10.5 when you upgrade to a 10.6 machine?

Applications :: Clean Install Of Snow Leopard - Time Machine & Carbon Copy Cloner?

Oct 19, 2010

I just did a clean install of Snow Leopard on my older macbook. I did not specifically back up my itunes purchases, however, I did do several Time Machine back ups as well as manually moving data via Finder (copy "Macintosh HD" and paste to folder on external), and finally a clone using CarbonCopyCloner. I wanted to start fresh, but I failed to think of my iTunes purchases, as well as iPhone app purchases/downloads. Is there some way I can specifically restore iTunes from the back up without having to restore from a TimeMachine backup?

Applications :: Snow Leopard - ITunes 9 With No 64bit Support

Dec 4, 2009

I recently installed Snow Leopard. It works faster than before and it gave me 8GB of space back. But, after looking through Applications in system profiler, I found out iTunes is not 64-bit unlike Safari and other native applications that have been re-written to 64-bit. I remember Apple said iTunes is also re-written. I must download a new version or it's included in an update (I'm waiting the 10.6.2 update to download at the moment)?

Can anyone tell me where iTunes is storing all my MP3 music and playlists information? Usually, I find it under users/music/itunes/itunes media

Windows On Mac :: Firewall Setting Adjustment And Time Capsule?

Jan 13, 2009

I tried playing command and conquer: tiberium wars on windows. I have never had an issue playing with my old router but have recently upgraded to the Time Capsule and I could not connect when I was playing online. I could connect initially but when I would go into a game it just would not allow me to connect to start the game. I then plugged directly into my cable modem and was able to connect right away. Do I need to go into Time capsule and adjust a setting?

Software :: Leopard Firewall Seems Barely Configurable

Mar 31, 2009

I hope I'm just missing something, but it seems the Leopard firewall took a huge step backward from Tiger. I want to configure it to permit certain ports to connect, and it seems I can't do that basic thing. All I see is a way to tell it which apps should be allowed to receive external connections. That's quite unsatisfactory to me; is there a way to just open up ports?

OS X :: Leopard Firewall Continuously Prompts For IPhoto Permission?

Mar 3, 2008

Can someone help me figure out why every time I launch iPhoto, the Leopard firewall prompts me to choose whether or not I want to allow or deny access for this application to accept incoming network connections...regardless of the fact that every single time, I choose 'Allow'? Here's a screenshot of the exact prompt that appears:

I've checked the Leopard firewall configuration in the 'Security' preference pane (which is obviously configured to "Set Access for Specific Services and Applications", and sure enough, iPhoto appears in the list with the 'Allow Incoming Connections' setting chosen....but it still asks me every time if I want to allow or deny connections, and I can't figure out how to make it stop asking??

Software :: Leopard Firewall Stops SMB File Sharing

Apr 17, 2009

I have a PMG5 with Leopard 10.5.6 on it. I did have it sharing with the PCs on my home network via SMB. Lately, however, it has stopped and XP kept giving errors saying that could not connect to the Mac . I tried every fix and checked every setting I could find on the net, then, on a whim, set the firewall to allow all incoming network connections (essentially turning it off). Wallah! Suddenly the Mac and the PCs were friends again. The firewall is set to allow File Sharing to go through but it isn't doing it. It will only share when it is off. What do I need to do to solve this issue?

Have any of you tried the second option before? Or do any of you have advice on which path I should take?

OS X :: Using Firewall / Allow Specific Services And Applications

Jul 28, 2009

I have my firewall set to "allow specific services and applications."

I noticed today that DashboardClient, System Preferences, and a program called "ScreenSaverEngine." Are all set to allow..

Typically i'd just want itunes so I can use simplify media, and safari/firefox because i think it has to be enabled.

What are the parameters for allowing a program incoming access in general - i seem to get asked it now that I have this option checked and wanted to make sure? I find it odd that i have some system utilities on my list set to allow - is it just me?
