here the firewall settings:
What happens when You turn the firewall completely off?
And another idea :
Did you restart you computer after installing the new FMP version ?
If not, application is not recognized by Keychain. It may be the same for Firewall...
If I turn the firewall off I do not get that message.
But if I turn the firewall on I immediately get that message again.
Restart did not help. (only the keychain problem is gone)
I will try a p-ram-reset.
p-ram-reset did not help.
I have to try re-installation.
re-installation did not help.
I hate that message!
Since it works fine without _any_ firewall, there might be an issue with the 'application firewall' - seems that this thing doesn't know that port 5003 'belongs' to FileMaker. We've had this under FileMaker 9...
Not sure.. can anybody confirm this behavior?
Another question: Is _outgoing_ traffic blocked? Are 3. party apps in use (ie LittleSnitch)?
I tried the above suggestions but no effect. I keep getting this message every time I use FMP13.0v4:
I removed FMPA from the firewall list, closed Preferences, reopened Preferences and then added FMPA to allow incoming connections then restarted the machine. No difference. I continue to get this annoying message.
Thank you for your posts.
Although I am unable to replicate the issue, I do recall a time when I received a similar error. I don't remember exactly what I did, but I recall removing all applications from the Firewall listing and then turning off the Firewall. I then went into System Preferences, went into Sharing and turned off all services (File Sharing, Screen Sharing, etc.). I probably rebooted the machine, and then reversed the process. That is, turn on the Sharing services, and then turned on the Firewall, and finally added the applications back to the Firewall.
I also recall a customer removing the Firewall preferences file (com.apple.alf.plist) manually, so when the Firewall is activated again, a new preferences file is created. The file can be found at:
Hard Disk -> Library -> Preferences -> com.apple.alf.plist
To be safe, rename the com.apple.alf.plist file. A new file will still be created, but if there is an issue, you can remove the new file and rename the original file back to com.apple.alf.plist.
Please keep me updated with any progress.
thanks, that helped.
I deleted "com.apple.alf.plist" and everything now is working as expected.
No annoying dialog. (beside that, FileMaker registered in the FireWall without asking after turning on the Firewall again.)
But I'll bet that after the next Update or reinstallation I will get the message again.
The message is back…
I hate it ( I also hate that the cursor jumps up in this forum while hitting RETURN ).
but back to the message:
If removing FileMaker from the FireWall options the message does not appear the first time!
But after the system has added FileMaker to the Firewall-Options-List the message appears everytime!
That is totally crazy and absurd and other way around …
Please make the message go away !!!
With the update 13.0.4, I do have the same problem and same desappointing result despite all efforts :
1) Message to accept or refuse incoming connexion
2) Login/password not used by FileMaker despite being present and correct in keychains (mac os X)
A solution is highly required.
Thank you for your post.
If you remove the entry from the Keychain, and then add it again, does the login then work?
