Continuous request to allow / block 'rapprtd' on my MAC

Hi I have a MAC and I keeping getting a request to allow/block rapportd. Does any one know what this is. I am currently blocking this activity but the request is continuous from IP address 172.16.3.251. Any thoughts on what it is and if I should 'allow' this. Thanks

Hello bobandlesley. I did an IP lookup on the IP address you posted "172.16.3.251". It returned the following results:

Hello bobandlesley. Have you determined from the article links whether their suggestions are the reason for the issue you are seeing? How can we assist further?

Re: Continuous request to allow / block 'rapprtd' on my MAC

Hi. No not yet identified what is calling and why it is happening. The advice ranges from my iPhone on the same local network to false positives from Norton antivirus!

if you read the links it is not conclusive. As far as I am aware I did not install it and I assume Apple included it in a recent release!  So still work in process and still blocked. Thanks for asking.

One question thought what does your gate keeper say about this? Have you checked? Have you also checked for an admin account on the system with the name of "root" and doesn't have a password?
