Hey, earlier this morning I installed FarFinder and had to set my firewall to allow the program to receive connections. It took a little while but after setting my computer to have a static IP address and forwarding a port from my router it finally started working. Now I have this message that pops up and disappears before I can read it. I started up a screen capture utility and finally caught what it said: "Do you want to allow httpd incoming connections?". This is as far as I've gotten and nothing short of disabling the firewall altogether seems to stop the message. Any ideas?

Thanks,
QUOTE Thanks

Do you have Web Sharing enabled by any chance? httpd is the http daemon commonly implied to mean Apache (a web server).
