Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How can I stop "accept incoming network connections?" message

Hello!

I have a quick question about starting up the Unreal Editor on a Macbook Pro.

I want to stop the pop up that says - Do you want the application “UE4Editor.app” to accept incoming network connections? - from popping up every time I start the program.

I've gone to Preferences/Privacy Settings/Firewall and it says Allow incoming connection for the Unreal Editor but it still asks me every time to allow connection when I boot up a new project.

Is this something that is just what has to be done or is there a setting to say Allow all the time?

This sounds lazy of me for not wanting to click one button :) but just wanted to see if there was a setting to fix this.

Hope someone can help!

Thanks in advance :)

Hello! Does anyone have a solution / work around / or any input on this? It's an old issue and a rather annoying one.

Hey jforder,

Thanks for the feedback! This is not expected behavior, so I've entered a report in our database to let the developers know it's happening.

Thanks!

Operating system: OS X Yosemite

Same problem still exists for me in 4.7.2. I have tried to add UE4Editor.app to trusted programs in Firewall panel like the dialog informs, but it doesn't help. Everytime I launch the editor the dialog shows again.

It is not a big deal, but very annoying, especially since the Allow button doesn't always get the focus.

Hope it gets resolved,

I'm having the same exact problem as well. I just downloaded UE4 on my iMac yesterday (Yosemite), and every time I launch the editor, I get the same firewall prompt.

Hi all,

It appears this is an issue with code-signing. The editor application bundle does not include a _CodeSignature subfolder, meaning that it isn’t being code-signed. Hence, the firewall will always display the Accept/Deny message.

For a while, some OSX and Xcode updates made it impossible for us to fix due to incompatibility between Steamworks library and new code sign tool Apple release with Xcode 6/OSX 10.9.5. There are new Steam libraries now, so it's possible what was blocking us before is no longer an issue, but adding code-signing is a complicated process and it isn't considered high priority at the moment. The devs will look into this for 4.8, but there's no way we'll be able to resolve it for 4.7.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Still happening to me as well. Running Sierra, Xcode 8.3.3. and Unreal Engine 4.18.

Still happens for me on 4.18.1. Was this ever fixed?

Thanks,

Any chance this issue can be fixed? I teach, and have to open 15-20 UE4 projects a day to grade. It's very cumbersome to have to click this popup every time. Thanks.
