Firewall - Snow Leopard 10.6.2

I have just upgraded to Snow Leopard 10.6.2
I have a macbook.
The firewall is on and Moneydance is set to accept incoming connections.
My data file is on a NAS drive.
I have the latest 2010 version of Moneydance.

The problem is now when I run Moneydance on my macbook it asks me to locate the data file, this I do on my NAS drive, when I do I am asked to accept incoming connections, and the screen blinks,which is not normal, when I accept the program works fine. I can quit and rerun the program and it loads the data file straight away. If I restart the mac I have to go through the same routine. I have always had to select the file on the NAS drive using my mac but on 10.5.8 once I had accepted the incoming connection it never asked again.

As a point I have a copy on a PC as well, I used it under XP and now under Windows 7 and it never asks me for the datafile it always loads fine, I am using the same file with all versions.

Whilst there seems to be a issue with remembering the file on the mac, I am not worried about that, its just the request to accept incoming connections with the blinking screen, this is usually an indication of a problem with the software and the OS.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks Ian

    I am suspecting a corrupt plist file under OS X that is causing the Mac to not remember the information. That or a permission issue. A user can easily repair permissions using Disk Utility (warning - DU can wipe your drive if you are not careful). If repairing permissions does not resolve the error, I would start looking at the plist file for MoneyDance.

    I apologize for the long delay in our response, I am embarrassed to say that we have been snowed under with questions about Moneydance 2010. Are you still having this issue, and if so, would you please include the version of Moneydance you are using, your OS, and the version of Java you are using (if this information is different from that above)?

    Thank you,

    Hi Ian,

    I upgraded to MD 2010 and my only comment is the importing of bank data is not as intuitive as it was before. That and reconciling bank statements is not as easy as before.

    Otherwise everything works well under 10.6.2 on a 2008 early Mac Pro.

    Thank you for getting back to me.

    I am still having the same issue, it is a slight annoyance as it is obviously not correct but I have been living with it as I like the product so much and once in moneydance I am fine. I only have this problem on the mac, I do use it on the PC under Windows 7 as well and it is fine, but I prefer to use it from my macbook.

    On the mac I am using Snow Leopard 10.6.2. And as advised from the "About Moneydance" = Moneydance 2010 (723), Java Version: 1.6.0_17
    Java Vendor: Apple Inc.

    Hope this helps
