How do I configure McAfee All Access Internet Security for Mac to work with PhotoSync?


The following steps have to be taken to run PhotoSync Companion with McAfee All Access Internet Security for Mac.

  1. Open the McAfee All Access Internet Security settings and go to the Firewall tab.

  2. In the Network Connections tab you should see your Wi-Fi network listed. Click on Manage Rules to add specific rules for PhotoSync to your firewall settings. If you can't click on it you might have to authenticate as an administrator first by clicking the padlock in the bottom right of the window and entering your administrator credentials.
