NIS 5 for Mac and Windows Live Mesh

MacBook Pro running Max OSX 10.7.2.  NIS 5 for Mac.  So here is the problem; when running Windows Live Mesh (ver 15.4.5726.23), Norton Fire Wall constantly pops up multiple alert windows with the following message - "An unknown service port (port XXXXX) is starting on your Mac."  In my situation, the ports started with 31013.  Each alert window advanced the port by one number; so far I am up to 31045.  If I close the Mesh application, the alert windows stop.  Please advise.

Hi redneckz_king

I'm trying to replicate your issue but not having any luck. Could you please do the following....?

1. Launch Norton Firewall.

2. At File menu, select the Export option.

3. Ensure the "Export all settings" option is selected and Export/Save the settings file somewhere.

4. Please send me that file. By default it is named "Firewall settings.npfx"

This will help to ensure that I have the same firewall settngs you do when I attempt to replicate your issue again.

Thanks

David
