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 V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Do The "Block All Incoming Connections" Entries Matter

Apr 24, 2012

In System Preferences/Security/Firewall the unchecked box below "Block all incoming connections" has 4 entries set to "Allow all incoming connections". Do these entries & their settings matter since the "Block all incoming connections" box is unchecked?

OS X :: ITunes Always Asks To Allow Incoming Connections?

Jul 5, 2009

I have this wierd problem on my MBP. Every time I launch iTunes it asks me if I want to allow incoming network connections. It asks this because I have configured my firewall settings to "Set Access for specific services and applications". The catch is, iTunes is already listed in the list of apps, and is configured to "allow incoming connections".

ITunes :: Keep Asking To Allow/Accept Incoming Network Connections

May 17, 2012

This is my sis's Mac mini, running the latest Lion OS and latest iTunes version 10.6.1  Her mac mini is on our home Airport Wireless Network. 

Whenever she launch iTunes, she gets this pop-up message: 

Do you want the application "iTunes.app" to accept incoming nework connections Deny and Allow buttons.  Every single time have to click 'Allow' to continue. 

Check the Firewall settings, it's on.  Inside Advance Settings the iTunes allow all incoming connections. This is not really annoying and disturbing, but have to allow almost every day when iTunes is launched.  The other way is to disable Firewall.

Applications :: ITunes Accept Incoming Connections Prompt?

Nov 17, 2010

The most recent iTunes update 10.1 has caused a prompt box every time I open iTunes that requires me to "allow" incoming connections. I have added iTunes in the firewall settings as always allow but still it comes up over and over. I do not have this problem on my two other macs that I updated the same day. All are running 10.6.5 and have identical iTunes libraries but for some reason my iMac will not stop prompting me over this. Is there a fix that I am not aware of?

Software :: Any Network Utility For Monitoring Incoming Connections?

Jun 4, 2009

I have someone monitoring my outgoing internet connections. That person sends pings, knows my logs and IP addresses I connect with, Skype is of his highest interest. Is there any way to protect myself from people monitoring what I do and what websites I visit? Or at least to know WHEN I am being watched? Is Network Utility of any help?

Is so, how to interpret it? I don't know much about MacBook, I was a Windows person till July. I had Tor, Privoxy and NetShield installed but it's a bit fussy and slows the connection. I have a MacBook with Intel 2.1 GHz processor, Leopard 10.5.6 OS and Safari 4 beta (552816). I use a wireless internet connection via a USB modem (Huawei E220). That person uses a PC with Windows XP.

OS X :: Incoming Connections While Opening For Instance Vuze Or Skype

Jan 10, 2010

Having my Mac Firewall turned on, I constantly get to see a popup asking me to allow or deny incoming connections while opening for instance Vuze or Skype.I've already checked the settings of my firewall in preferences, but I cannot find a possibility to make the firewall remember my preference. It's pretty annoying that I have to allow or deny incoming connections at every start up.

OS X :: Block All Incoming Connections / Stealth Box Grayed Out

Jul 8, 2010

My Macbook has arrived, and since I have time to waste until the modem comes I figured I'd mess around with the Macbook and setup what I can in the meantime. I have some questions relating to the firewall and user accounts.

1. When I select "block all incoming connections" under the firewall options, the "stealth mode" box gets checked but grayed out. The box being grayed out confuses me. When I select "block all incoming connections" is "stealth mode" on or off? Why would that box be checked but grayed out?

2. I've seen it suggested that you should use one user account only for administrator purposes and another for daily use but not administrator purposes. Do you yourself do this?

3. When my modem arrives I'll have to configure it in Safari. Will I be able to setup my modem and use the internet with a non-administrator account?

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.

Applications :: ITunes Asking To Accept Incoming Network Connections Every Time

May 27, 2010

Because I have Firewall enabled, everytime that I launch iTunes, I get a popup asking me: "Do you want the application "iTunes.app" to accept incoming network connections?" I click on "Allow." But unlike other applications where this process is only asked once, the first time you launch an app, I'm asked this every time.

I've talked with AppleCare about this, and the representative told me it may be because I've disabled "Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library," because I prefer to organize my music folders my own way. She offered 2 work arounds:

1) Enable file sharing of my Music folder. It didn't work. The prompt still occurs every launch.

2) Reinstall iTunes. However, admittedly, she said this may not necessarily resolve the issue as it could simply be because I'm not using iTunes' file location by enabling "Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library."

Does anyone have any idea how to resolve this? Also, if I reinstall iTunes, will I have to re-add my Library to iTunes or are the relevant database/album covers files & folders retained?--it took a few hours for a collection of my size to be added.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Java Accept Incoming Network Connections?

Mar 13, 2012

I have several home security cameras that utilize Java.I've had them for years. But just in the past day, I've begun noticing a lightning fast popup that comes flying by and leaves so fast I can't even read it. It happens when I first launch one of the cameras in either Safari or Firefox (likely would do the same in other browsers too. I finally had to use a screen recording app to be able to record when the pop up flies by.I then slowly scrolled and paused on the message.It is a standard security message that says, "Do you want the application "Java" to accept incoming network connections?" 

There is an ALLOW and DENY button but there's no way the popup ever is on the screen long enough for you to even read it, let alone click on a selection.  I see lots of other posts about this around the discussion forum and I see how I could go into the Security preferences and perhaps allow network connections there, assuming I can figure out how to point to the correct piece of Java code (System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk???) But my bigger question is why now? I haven't done any updates in the recent past and I log onto to these cameras every day...  Granted this popup goes by fast but it is noticeable...  Had it been there a week ago I would have noticed it...  But no...  It just started today. Why? And why would any message that seeks a user choice automatically appear and then disappear within a fraction of a second?

OS X :: VPN Connections On Snow Leopard?

Apr 26, 2010

I'm new here but have lurked for a while and love the community. Hope someone can shed some light on this. I've got a Mac Pro with iVPN installed (which allows you to use the VPN server built into each copy of Snow Leopard). I've got it working perfectly on my Mac Pro - but my friends Mac Pro is having problems.

I absolutely know I have the shared secret, username, and password correct. The shared secret must be correct because when I change it - it times out. However, when I go to connect to the VPN from either an iPhone or another Snow Leopard Mac, it throws an error than the password isn't correct. Obviously I've tested this multiple times with multiple passwords. See the log below.

The Mac Pro is NOT running Snow Leopard Server - just regular Snow Leopard (which can run a VPN server all the same).

OS X Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: LOM Connections Are Getting Blocked

Mar 29, 2012

We're unable to open a remote connection to a intel Xserve (Late 2006) using the ipmitool (ipmitool -H ipaddress -U admin -P chassis status) or Apple Server Monitor. As soon as we're trying to connect the lom IP address is unreachable for around 10-15 minutes. The server is running in colocation. The bizarre thing is that another Xserve with some configuration is just running fine. I've also reset LOM to its factory settings and double checked the password.

They show up as a Info type message in Console. No real problem, just curious if anyone else is seeing that.

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 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.

I am losing random incoming emails in my .mac email address. I first discovered it last week when my wife was getting emails that I was copied on that I never got. Checked inbox, trash, junk, iCloud and never could find them. Then today, just by chance, I had to verify a link via that email address. When the verification is sent, I see it hit the inbox with the new email counter and then it immediately disappears. I have disabled all my Apple Mail rules and Smart Mailboxes. As I mentioned, I have checked everywhere I could think of that it might be going.
