Summary

Accept Incoming Network Connections dialog every time! FMP11 10.6.8 firewall

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

FMP 11 and FMPA 11

Operating system version

10.6.8

Description of the issue

We just purchased annual volume licence for FMP11, and have FMPA 11 as well. Installed on clean-installed Macs with 10.6.8. Every time we launch on all machines, we get the firewall dialog box: "Do you want the application FileMaker Pro.app to accept incoming network connections?"

It does not change regardless of accepting or denying. Very annoying. I see this issue has lingered for many versions... c'mon FileMaker...

Steps to reproduce the problem

Open FileMaker to access a shared file.

Expected result

Opens file with no firewall message after first preference setting.

Actual result

Firewall message appears every single time, arggghh.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

"Do you want the application FileMaker Pro.app to accept incoming network connections?"

Configuration information

Clean install 10.6.8, up to date. Clean install FMP 11 or FMPA 11, up to date. Firewall ON, default settings. Access FMP file created with FMPA 11, hosted on a Mac with FMP11. Nothing special about the file or the host.
