Since I started using Galileo I get the Mac OS X firewall pop-up frequently if I want to allow or deny Eclispe to receive connections.

It is annoying and I want to know why, and of course what I can do about it.

Thanks

Where does it want to connect to? One reason might be that you don't
have the source for the JRE and hence it tries to fetch the Javadoc from
the web.

Sorry I did not make myself fully clear.

This is not about outgoing connections. The firewall does ask about allowing to accept connections.

Did you resolve this? I have the same problem in Helios with GlassFish. Right click on GlassFish server line and instead of context menu a firewall message pops up briefly and goes away. Starting the server causes the screen to flash repeatedly, which I suppose is the popup mesage popping up in the background.

Once the server is started I am able to right click on it and get the context menu. Also the flashing goes away.

Putting Eclipse itself in th firewall options would not help.
