same problem here. I bought the LSQ last year and I used to 2 of these pop-ups. For 2 months or so, since Oct 2010, this pop-up just doesn't go away! regardless what I do 'allow' or 'deny' it keeps coming. If I don't choose any option is disappears and comes back in a matter of seconds. It's unberable!!

 

I have a LS-QL/1D and iMax OX 10.5.8

There is a new version of the Nas Navigator software available for Mac OS X, version 2.30, and it can be downloaded from the Buffalo website, support/downloads section.

 

I do not know if this will fix your issues OP, as I don't use Mac, but it may be worth checking out.

 

Hope this resolves your issue. :)

I installed 2.30 quite some time ago - it still has the same issue as the previous versions.

Same problem here, running Navigator 2.30 with a LinkStation Pro Duo.

 

The reason OSX Firewall repeatedly asks whether or not to allow/deny incoming connections with particular apps is that their signatures are invalid. Leopard/Snow Leopard is quite lenient with unsigned software but rather cracks down on invalid signatures.

 

Can you release a software update with a correct signature please.

Just bought a new LinkStation Pro Duo for the office as a small media share.

Same very annoying behaviour using NASNavigator v2.31 and OS X (10.6.8).

 

For sure, I won't publish any administrator logins to coworkers :smileymad:

 

Please fix it as this occurs with any Mac user who has activated the internal firewall. Who does not?

Shouldn't be that hard...

 

The LinkStation is overall a nice NAS but with this omission, sadly it does not qualify for semi-professional usage.

I have had this annoying problem for years, and stlll do with OS 10.7 (Lion) on my MacBook, though th new NAS Navi 2.40 has helped some. I am surprised cuz it does look like an easy fix.

If you look on the MAC forums you will see it is littered with similar issue with the firewall on multiple different applications (including iTunes and Sarfari!)
There is current no official solution. The issue is with the firewall itself and nothing to do with Buffalo!
PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / Recovery files  LSRecovery.exe file.

To learn more, I searched for "firewall safari" and "firewall itunes" and didn't find the posts you referenced. Neither have I found any post from Buffalo stating that it was not their issue. I would've guessed that by this time they would have said something. That way, customers could direct their concerns to Apple, or at least deflect such complaints away from themselves.  Should I have been able to deduce that it's an Apple issue, lacking any technical affirmation either way?:smileyindifferent:

I still have the problem where it asks permission to receive connections at every login with NasNavi2.40 and 10.6.8 with firewall on.  Actually there are now two dialogs to respond to though only one is asking for an administrative password.
