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??

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.

Applications :: ITunes 9.1 Asks Permission To Accept Incoming Connections?

Apr 2, 2010

Since upgrading to iTunes 9.1 I'm being asked every time I open it if I want to allow incoming connections. Each time I respond yes, enter my admin name and password and everything is fine. The next time I open it it asks again. I've tried going to my Security preferences, deleting iTunes from the firewall rules and then adding it again, but this has no effect.

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?

Applications :: VPN Software Witopia--bypass Wifi Router Firewall?

Feb 19, 2010

I live and work in Mainland China. There are a lot of sites I'd like to visit that I'm unable to do so because they're blocked. I'm a bit paranoid about internet security, especially here. I always connect behind a strict firewall on my wifi router (D-Link DIR-655) with SPI and NAT in addition I have the firewall on Snow Leopard set the strictest---to block all incoming connections. What I'm concerned about, is the VPN software of Witopia bypassing that firewall in my router. Will this happen? Does anyone know about the fine details of Witopia's VPN software and what it's doing, how it's connecting, etc?

OS X :: Cannot Change Permission Status For Applications Folder

Oct 16, 2008

I'm running Leopard (10.5.5) on an Intel g5 iMac. I noticed this afternoon when trying to drop an app into my 'Applications' folder that I had to enter my password in order to do. Checking the 'Get info' pane for the folder I noticed that the permission status for 'everyone' was set to 'read only'. I have no idea how this happened but it must have been fairly recently as I was happily dropping apps into the folder only a few days ago. There are also two other 'names' in the panel labeled as 'unknown', one of whom has read & write permission and one of whom is also 'read only'.

There are only two user accounts on my mac and we are both administrators, so I don't know why there are so many entries under the 'Sharing and Permissions' section. So anyway, I unlocked the panel with my password and tried to flip the permission for everyone from 'read only' to 'read & write'. I got the following error dialogue: "The operation could not be completed. An unexpected error has occurred. Error code - 8076." I tried to add a new 'administrators' group to the permissions panel with read and write access but received the same error.

OS X :: Unable To Get Permission To Access Applications Folder?

Jan 15, 2009

So my father got a new Macbook and I was trying to transfer over some of my files. I turned on file sharing (on my own computer, MBP) and accidentally removed myself from the permissions list for the Applications folder. Stupid, I know.

Now I can't access anything: Any application, System Pref., Time Machine, etc.......

Applecare's solution is to reinstall Leopard, not sure where the hell the disk is now. But I know I still have it. Is this the only course of action? Would repairing my permissions solve it? (using the install disk to access it)

Applications :: Symantec Not Doing Full Computer Scan - No Permission To Access Files?

Sep 25, 2010

I was wondering if anyone could tell me how I can give Symantec permission to read these files? Some of them are old IM conversations, but others I have no idea what they are. I ran a virus scan, and it skipped over quite a few things. I'd rather just be safe and have everything checked.

OS X :: What's Best Firewall Solution

Jul 1, 2008

What's the best (Software)Firewall solution for OS X. At the moment I work with a mixed environment ( ipfw, Apple Application Firewall and Little Snitch ). It seems to be secure, but this is an absolute overhead. I noticed, that my internet performance slowed down. For the moment I'm not able to spend money on a hardware solution. I'm searching for a complete Firewall software that controls incoming as well as outgoing connections ( Apple seems not to be interested in distributing a complete and easy waterproof solution ). Unfortunately ipfw offers no application control. I'm not a security expert, thus I need an easy configurable firewall.

OS X :: Cannot SSH - No Firewall Running

Nov 2, 2009

I've got a problem with my new mbp, mac os x snow leopard. It can't ssh. I've got no firewall running, can do ssh localhost and can ssh *into* my mbp from another machine, but I can't ssh from the mbp to another computer. If I do: ssh -v, hich is my wifes debian comp, I get:

OpenSSH_5.2p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8k 25 Mar 2009
debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh_config
debug1: Connecting to [] port 22.
debug1: connect to address port 22: Operation timed out
ssh: connect to host port 22: Operation timed out

I've tried uncommenting "Host *" and "ForwardAgent yes" in /etc/ssh_config (I read you had to do that on some other forum), but it doesn't help. I can ssh into my wife's computer using any other os than mac os x. This is extremely annoying, since I can't comfortably fetch my old files to this new computer.

I live in China, its great, but I hate the firewall. Ever since they blocked Youtube, I've been trying to get a good connection to a proxy server.
