Firewall Change for College-owned Mac OS Computers 2/8

Posted February 3rd, 2016 at 11:37 am.

On Monday, February 8th, LITS will be making a system-wide change to all College-owned Mac OS computers. We will be turning on the Mac OS Firewall to enhance the security of our systems.

Most community members will not notice this change because College-licensed and other software from legitimate vendors will be added as exceptions to the firewall prior to installation. You will still retain control of your Firewall settings and will be able to manually add exceptions in the Firewall for your installed applications

In the unlikely instance that you are unable to install desired software because of the Mac OS Firewall, please contact the Help Desk for assistance: or 610-526-7440.
