"Allow incoming network connections" -- message recurs [message #1451452] Thu, 23 October 2014 21:34 Go to next message

This applies to Luna both on OSX 10.9 (Mavericks) and 10.10 (Yosemite). When Luna is run a pop up appears each time asking whether incoming network connects are to be allowed. (See attached screenshot.) I have set this setting permanently to "accept" in System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Firewall > Firewall options. Nevertheless, the pop up appears every time Luna is run.

With Kepler and earlier versions of Eclipse the request only appeared once so I suspect that the issue is with Luna rather than with OSX.

Any suggestions?

Same issue here with Eclipse Mars on OS X. Never found a solution.

Given that only two of us report this I suspect it's some odd combination of factors that few people encounter.

Make that 3 people getting this. Why does Eclipse want to receive incoming connections anyway?

Eclipse runs an embedded instance of Jetty to run its Help system; that's likely the component requesting to receiving connections.
For the record, I don't see this with Luna or Mars on OS X 10.8.

I'm using Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers 4.6.0.20160203-1802 with OS X Wl Capitan 10.11.4 and it happens almost every time I run or debug a as a Java Application.

The solution for me was this:

- In OS X got to System Preferences > Security > Firewall
- Click on the little lock at the bottom left corner to enable editing.
- Set - java - to block incoming connections.

That's it.

Regards

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, I do not see Java in the list of applications listed in the Firewall Options settings screen. Just to check that I'm looking in the right place I've attached a screenshot.

The issue is there in the latest Eclipse Neon too...
If you have the Firewall on, you keep getting the popup(Allow incoming connections) everytime that you open up Eclipse even though the app is market as allowed into the Firewall settings pane. Why is this happening ?

It does happen after installing some sort of additional plugin

Resolved: This occurs (for me) only when PyDev is installed. I uninstalled it and the message has not recurred. I'm using Anaconda/Spyder for Python.

Had the same issue with pydev where it would prompt to accept incoming network connections if I debugged or ran any modules that accepted incoming network connections (listen'ed)

In my case the python interpreter that pydev was trying to run had a bad signature: "invalid Info.plist (plist or signature have been modified"

Got rid of the nag with the following command:
codesign -f -s - /path/to/python
