    What does "icm_service listening" mean?
    Could someone please tell me what "icm_service" is? my mac crashed right at this time and I'm wondering if it had anything to do with it. What exactly does "listening" mean? I do not have computer sharing on, nor am I syncing with any other devices. This is the first time I have seen this notification. I have a mac pro, late 2011, i use google chrome exclusively, have not ever used windows, my software is always updated, I use Firewall, have a home wireless connection via TWC with a WPA2 password. Thank you for your help:

    June 12 15:19:43 localhost Firewall[110]: icm_service is listening from 127.0.0.1:30000 proto=6

    A quick search online suggests that it has something to do with Qubee broadband (see here). If you do use that, take a look at the suggestion listed there.

    I don't see anything in there about any Microsoft products. Do you use Qubee services as noted in that discussion?

    Did you install any software for your internet connection and/or hardware? It's possible that your services requires similar software to that listed in the linked discussion.
