    My firewall keeps giving me an alert on port 9101. I looked that port up and it is a port that the Bacula daemon program uses. base on the information I read on this website:, I don't want this Bacula daemon program running on my computer. Will someone tell me how to locate this daemon program so I can delete it? I already went into my application folder and did not locate it.

    It looks like Bacula is a remote backup program. Is your computer your personal computer or is it at work? At work it's possible the sysadmins installed it and you will have a hard time removing it.

    In your basement
    Find it in Finder.

    1) Cmd + F

    2) Make sure you are "searching the mac"

    3) Add the search criteria "System Files included" (you will probably need to go to Others first...)

    4) Search of bacula and start deleting...

    I was able to get into my "System Files Included" on my MacPro running OS X Snow Leopard. However, I am also running OS X Tiger 10.4.11 on another computer. When I typed in "System Files Included" , and then searched in 'other', I was not able to pull up the same screen to search for the Bacula daemon program. I decided to do a clean install of Tiger. After I did the reinstall, the alert in my firewall stopped. I then did a search into folders 'System/Library/LaunchDaemons'. I found a lot of .plist files. Whatever was causing my firewall to alert is now gone. Thanks for the help.
