Morning folks...

This past week, for some reason, every time that I start iTunes I get a pop up window that reads "Do you want the application "iTunes.app" to accept incoming network connections?"

I have doubled check that the firewall is configured correctly to accept incoming connection from the network to iTunes, and I am a little at a lost where else to check. One significant change that I have done recently is to configure my iMac to share certain files in our network, music being one of these items, but you would think that iTunes would be configure to accept incoming networks connections automatically in this case.

Any inputs would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance...

FWIW, I got the same message. I clicked Yes. All seems well.

Don't believe anything I tell you, unless it is consistent with what you already know to be true, or unless you have taken the time to research the matter to prove its accuracy to your satisfaction. This is known as "doing your homework."

Look here: Do you want the app iTunes to accept incoming network connections?

Turn off the software firewall. It's off by default for a reason. You don't need it.

Thank you iWhat and everyone who responded. As suggested, re-installing iTunes seems to have taken care of the issue.

I know you've fixed this now, but have you used Clean My Mac recently?

When I used it, it seemed to trigger this issue in iTunes, at least I think it was the trigger.

I had that message for a few days before I got round to trying to get rid of it once and for all.

For me, the fix was to remove iTunes from my Firewall preferences, restart the Mac, then launch iTunes, accept the suggestion to allow iTunes to accept connections and then restarted the Mac again, it did seem to fix it for me.

I think the Clean My Mac app must have deleted some preference file, don't get me wrong, it told me all the files that it thought were of little use, I looked at quite a few before agreeing it probably knew best and let it delete all of its recommendations - the fault was mine, I just wonder if you happened to use this app recently as well?

I haven't used Clean My Mac. I tend to prefer to clean a lot of the stuff in my computers manually... I'm an old timer computer geek, and some habits die hard.

I did try, earlier, to delete iTunes from the firewall preference and re-select it, but this didn't resolved the issue with the pop up message.
