Software :: Spyware Alert Pop - Up (Firefox Is Attempting To Connect To Server)

May 12, 2009

It started yesterday,and I am worried my computer has been hacked. For some background it is a 20" iMac running OSX 10.4. What is happening is when we start up Safari, mail, Firefox,etc we get a Network spyware alert box that pops up, and says the following for example when starting firefox: Firefox is attempting to connect to a server with the internet address numbers due to not being sure if these should be kept secret).Then it says [URL] on port 80. Fire fox is not authorized to make this connection. Do you want to allow the connection,or block it? Program location:/applications/ It then has radio buttons with the following options:

O Apply until quits
O Apply today
O Apply once
O Apply always

On the right of those radio buttons are two boxes withthe following options:

Apply to all ports
Apply to all internet addresses

I am worried we may have been hacked,but I have no idea. I click on block when I get these pop-ups,and sometimes it will allow the program to work just fine,and sometimes not. Have we been hacked? What can I do to fix this? We do have a Allume netblockade program,but it has been on the computer for years,and only now has this problem come up.

IMac PPC :: Email Pop-up Box Keeps Coming Up The POP Server "" Rejecting Password?

Mar 21, 2012

I am having trouble with our email account. A pop-up box keeps coming up: the POP server "" rejected the password for user I've reset the password and it's still not working. SBC/ATT says it's an Apple issue, not their issue... that Apple mail is not recognizing the account or something like that. I've also tried adjusting to "recieve mail manually" instead of automatically (on all of our apple products) - still not working. Continual pop-up box rejecting password, no mail coming in to that account either.

Applications :: Little Snitch - Restore Alert Panel Pop Ups?

Apr 8, 2009

One of the features I mostly like about Little Snitch is the Alert Panel pop ups, which give me full control of what type of access is given to which applications. Here is the alert panel: I found that some users dislike it, and even some discussions were started on how to get rid of it. That's not my case today. My Little Snitch was working perfectly until I decided to upgrade my Macbook HD to a higher storage. I went to an authorized Mac store, which replaced the new HD into place and advised me to go back home and boot the MacBook with the installation disk pressing C.

Then, after installation, I chose to restore my files from the last Time Machine backup. However, after doing this it seemed that many applications including Little Snitch started to operate differently... as if I would be running them for the first time. So in addition to the automatic Time Machine restore, I went to a manual restore of applications and library items. When I tried to overwrite the files of Little Snitch on the Library folder, I was asked my Administrator password. Then after typing it, I received the message that I did not have sufficient administrator preferences................

Is there any add-on you all use that may help? I know some things are going to get through no matter what. So I just thought I'd see what others experiences' were.

Software :: Firefox And Password Manager Pop Up For New Site

Dec 12, 2008

Love this feature (because I'm all about convenience). But the first time I logged on to a specific new site, password manager popped up asking if I wanted it to remember my log on information. Instead of hitting "remember", I accidentally hit "never remember". It's driving me nuts because its the one site I visit every day, and can't figure out how to un-do it other than re-register under a new name, which would be too much of a hassle since it's my stock brokerage site.

OS X :: The Hotmail POP Server Pop3 Rejected The Password?

Aug 15, 2010

Every few minutes, my Mail rejects my Hotmail password and says "The Hotmail POP serverrejected the password for user ______". I looked it up on google and apparently hotmail may be set up to reject passwords or deny POP access if the polling rate is too fast... I'm not sure what's going on. I click "remember password in keychain" every time but it pops up every hour at least.

I just installed Mac OS X Server 10.5.4. I am trying to enable the Mail Service/Server. It shows the the SMTP Incoming and Outgoing is enabled in the Server Admin, but for IMAP and POP, they are not running/enabled.

I have went through and reconfigured it to enable IMAP and POP, but the services will not start.

The server can receive Mail just fine.

If I go to the webmail by typing in [URL] and try to log in, I get the following error message.

Error connecting to IMAP server: localhost.

Intel Mac :: Outgoing Mail On POP Server

Mar 17, 2012

I have experienced problems with a POP outgoing server for some time on both my MacBook and IMac - incoming is OK. I have contacted the service provider and they say that all codes and log-in details are correct and that they can send from Webmail server ( and so can I). I can also use the outgoing server on my iPhone so it suggests that something is wrong in the settings on the iMac and MacBook - but they are correct and the same as the iPhone.I notice that this server shows 'offline' in th setting box - is this a clue?. I have not found anyway of making this server go on-line.

Applications :: Multiple Mail Accounts With Same Outgoing POP Server

Nov 24, 2008

I'm new mac fan who has bought a macbook pro and thrown BG & MS out of my life, almost. The transition has been a little tough. I am finding some Mac things so easy. And other so hard. Apple Mail is giving me fits. In outlook express, I have 3 email accounts for various levels of privacy. All using verizon's outgoing mail server to send email. So, same username, pw & settings & outgoing Pop are the same on all 3 accounts. No problem in Outlook Express.

Mail says you cannot have the same username & pw& pop in 2 separate accounts whether it is outgoing or incoming pops/servers. On 2 accounts I have started using their own pop to send mail out. I still cannot get 1 account to email out. For 2 accounts I use onlymyemail to filter spam and then I download it from their incoming pop. So, these 2 accounts must have the same username and password and pop to download the filtered email. It seems like this whole thing is reversed. This should be a MS problem, and Mail should allow the same usname & pw on all accounts.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Leave Messages On The Server With A Pop Email?

May 4, 2012

I have a POP email through Godaddy and I want to set it up in with the Mail app.  However I do not want Mail to delete anything off the Godaddy server as I often need to reference my email through the webmail when at work.  Is there a way to have the Mail app only delete messages off the server if I delete them in mail?  Kind of want it to work like it does on my phone where it will show the messages but only deletes them off the server if I delete them on my phone myself.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Cannot Connect To VPN Service Unless Server Is Locally Logged Into

Jun 27, 2012

I work remotely a lot.  After I upgraded to Lion server, I am unable to connect to the VPN service remotely unless I physically go over to the server (mac pro) and log into the desktop manually. 

Previously, if my Snow Leopard server restarted (due to power failure, etc) and it re-booted up to the login screen, I could still logon to the VPN remotely as the VPN service would always startup (at the login screen) without a user having to be logging in.   

Now, with Lion Server (10.7.4), if the server restarts, I cannot login back to the VPN. I have to get someone to go over to the server and manually login, then I can access VPN just fine. (I do not, and will not turn automatic login on on my server due to the huge security risk.)   

How do I get the Lion Server VPN service to startup before or at the logon screen even if no user is logged in?

OS X Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Server Admin Cannot Connect

Mar 20, 2012

I'm trying to using Server admin on a remote Mac to manage our xserve. Both are running 10.6.8 and I've installed the Server Admin tools onto the mac. Both the Workgroup manager and Server Monitor work OK on the mac, but whenever I try and connect the Server Admin it always comes up with the error : "The login information is incomplete for this server or is not valid. The server failed to accept the login information you provided for <servername>. Check the name and password and try to log on again" I can't connect using the server name, FQDN, or IP address. The macs are all using OD and AD and I've tried both AD and local OD accounts (all administrative) but to no avail. DNS is working OK and I can resolve the server-name with dig and dig -x. I can screen share the server so connectivity isn't the problem.

OS X Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot Connect To Server

Apr 30, 2012

I am running multiple services with the latest version of OS X Server (10.6.8) on my MacMini (web, vpn, mail, ichat, ical, address book, etc.) . Everything has been working fine for the last year and no changes have been made to the server, settings, ISP, or DNS, with the exception of installing the latest system software updates. Now, when I try to open my websites or connect remotely via VPN I get a "cannot connect to sever" message.  All other services are still working as they should. The server is hooked up to an Airport Extreme via a cable modem with a static IP. I have tried the following thus far:

1) checked all cables and they are plugged in and seated properly.

2) restarted the server, airport extreme, and cable modem

3) turned Web services off and on again in Server Admin

4) checked the DNS via the web and my site addresses are pointing to my static IP address

5) checked the Airport's port mapping to make sure Web Service was still on

6) checked my websites SSL certificate to make sure it's current and enabled

7) tried disabling SSL

8) created and enabled a new self-signed SSL certificate  

Recent log activity shows:

Apr 29 11:38:49 xxxxxx-corp org.apache.httpd[47667]: Syntax error on line 13 of /etc/apache2/proxy_sites/0000_any_8443_localhost.conf:

Apr 29 11:38:49 xxxxxx-corp[1] (org.apache.httpd[47667]): Exited with exit code: 1

I'm assuming the "key.pem' does not exist or is empty" part is the issue, but I am a novice and have no idea what that means.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: "Connect To Directory" In

May 5, 2012

I'm trying to do something fairly simple — allow users from an external LDAP server to access services on my Lion server.  Following Apple's instructions, I can't find the "Connect to Directory" choice in the Manage menu of I always start by turning off OD by using Server Admin to configure as "Standalone Directory". This is what I see in after doing that.

Apple's instructions say if the Manage Network Accounts option appears, you need to first set up the server to host network accounts.  So I click that option, which seems the be the same thing as creating an OD Master using Server Admin, as far as I can tell.Then I try to add a new user.For some reason, the "type" dropdown list exists, and lets me choose "Imported user from directory", even though I haven't setup any other directory server.  Of course, when I search for a username, it finds nothing.Apple's instructions say to now choose "Connect to Directory" from the Manage menu, but that option doesn't show up.  I only have what shows in the screenshot above, sans "Manage network accounts" now.  How can I get this to appear?

OS X :: Cannot Connect To FTP - No Login To Websites From Firefox

Jul 28, 2009

One day I could log in to any site using firefox, the next I couldn't log into anything. I type the password and username, when I click on "log in" nothing happens. It says "done" at the bottom left, but nothing has happened. Safari works fine. I would just get by, however after creating a website in IWeb I discovered anything FTP related will not work.

I have tried lots of different FTP clients such as (Transmit, cyber duck, firezilla, cross ftp) but nothing works. The passwords etc are all correct as they work on my mac at work. The only change I've made is installing little snitch, however nothing is restricted related with anything that would affect the current problem. I have tried usual suspects such as deleting cookie, erasing private data etc.

Applications :: Firefox Homepage Changed By Visiting Proxy Server

Jan 22, 2009

I was checking out various proxy servers with Firefox, trying to find a fast, reliable server. After testing one, my homepage [URL] came up as an "Apache Tomcat" page. This keeps happening even if I type [URL], it redirects to [URL], which displays the Apache Tomcat page. It says I have successfully set it up, despite never having even heard of it before. I have used the Terminal to check for recently modified files, and have looked through Firefox's preferences. Little Snitch reports no network connections by Firefox as it loads [URL] and displays the Tomcat page. I can still do google searches from the search bar in Firefox.

Below is a transcript from part of the page. I think that there's a UNIX file on my drive that has been modified somehow, but I haven't found it. If you're seeing this page via a web browser, it means you've setup Tomcat successfully. Congratulations! As you may have guessed by now, this is the default Tomcat home page. It can be found on the local filesystem at: $CATALINA_HOME/webapps/ROOT/index.html

where "$CATALINA_HOME" is the root of the Tomcat installation directory. If you're seeing this page, and you don't think you should be, then you're either a user who has arrived at new installation of Tomcat, or you're an administrator who hasn't got his/her setup quite right. Providing the latter is the case, please refer to the Tomcat Documentation for more detailed setup and administration information than is found in the INSTALL file.
