How Does the macOS Firewall Affect the TeleConsole?
The macOS native firewall can only control incoming connections. This can affect incoming calls or other inbound TeleConsole communication. Automatic firewall access is granted if the Automatically allow signed software to receive incoming connections option is enabled.
If you have problems with outbound traffic it may be due to a third-party firewall that you have installed on your mac.
Access and Configuration
Presently the macOS native firewall only controls incoming connections that affect incoming calls or other inbound TeleConsole communication.
To allow the TeleConsole access through the macOS native firewall:
- Do one of the following:
- Click the Apple menu (
- Click on the Dock (the icon may appear slightly different, depending on your macOS version.)
- Click Security & Privacy and select the Firewall tab.
- Click at the bottom-left to be able to unlock permissions to the firewall preferences and enter your credentials or an administrator credentials.
- You will now be able to click Firewall Options.
- A list of apps previously added to the firewall will show.
- If the TeleConsole is already here make sure it is set to Allow incoming connections (green status). If it is set to Block incoming connections (red status) just click the double caret () next to it and change the status.
(If the Automatically allow signed software to receive incoming connections is checked then newly installed software (including the TeleConsole) will already be granted incoming firewall access.)
- Otherwise, if the TeleConsole is not on the list click to add a new app to the list and select TeleConssole from the list of available apps and services.
- Click OK to apply the changes.
