    Hi,

    I have two computers that seem to have stopped saving my firewall preferences after upgrading to OSX 10.6.6.

    Each time I start each computer, the system asks whether I want to allow or block connections for a variety of programs, including iTunes and several UNIX commands (cupsd, compressord, ftpd, krb5kdc, qmasterd, qmastertaskd,smbd).

    Why aren't these settings being saved upon shutdown? :confused:
    Is anyone else experiencing a similar problem?
    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Well have you run disk utility yet?

    Have you run PLUTIL in the terminal yet to verify your preferences?

    Have you tried the drop-dead basic delete the firewall preferences and redo your settings?

    Cheers

    The application's signature was invalid to the firewall. They had to be reinstalled, problem solved.
