I often connect over a slow connection via SSH to an older Mac running Vine Server 3.0. I’ve bought Vine Viewer just to do that.
To speed things up, I’ve modified something inside my Vine Viewer.app according to this hint: http://www.testplant.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=528 - SSH compression works great for me.
However, this seems to break the code signature to Vine Viewer.app, therefore rendering the application suspicious to Leopard’s (and no doubt Snow Leopard’s) Application Firewall. That means, even if I explicitly allow it to accept incoming connections, the firewall won’t let it.
(note - we’re not talking about ipfw - it’s not just a matter of opening ports!)
I suppose I can’t re-sign the code as only the developers can do this. Is there anything I can do?
Can you please include this functionality in the next release?
