Unclear Message: Remote computer attempting access

Recommended Posts

Hello I've recently started using this on my Mac and am a little lost on this message that regularly pops up.

"A Remote computer is attempting to communicate with an application running on this computer. Do you want to allow this connection?

Application: SYSTEM
Remote Computer: fe80::
Local Port: TCP 49179
"


I feel this is really isn't helpful in finding out what is trying to access my computer at this point and feels super suspect.
Anyone able to shed light on what is attempting to access my SYSTEM application?

Most likely it's AirDrop communication in case you don't use the Home or Work firewall profile. We recommend switching the firewall to home / office profile.

I do have my phone nearby, but I have AirDrop Disabled now and I'll see if it continues to try.
