Firewalls, to your corners!

The frustrations I was having following recent changes to my internet security suites have finally been resolved, dueling firewalls. The built-in firewall with macOS continued to run, whilst the new firewall within McAfee was also attempting to firewall connections on my MacBook Pro. I’m a touch surprised that McAfee as part of its setup never said you need to disable the built-in if you wish to use our firewall.

This battle of the firewalls discovered, finally, I tried turning off the macOS firewall and see how things ran using McAfee’s service, it wasn’t what I would have hoped for, still experiencing issues. Is it perhaps because I am running on Apple Silicon and not an Intel processor? I’d hope not. I have noticed McAfee does seem a touch buggy when I’ve attempted to tick checkboxes the application has crashed on several occasions, hardly encouraging. Given this, I’ve decided against using it as the system’s firewall and restored macOS’ service which has worked well to date.

Nice to have this one resolved, finally.
