NVMS 2.0 Mac firewall configuration

There is an option to automatically allow signed software to receive incoming connections. This means the NVMS2.0 apps and services signed by a valid certificate authority will automatically added to this list. Any app that is created by Apple, for example, that needs to receive incoming connections will be automatically added to the list. If NVMS2.0 can not connect to devices successfully, the firewall may be blocking the network access of NVMS 2.0.

Blocking all incoming connections will “prevent incoming incoming connections to nonessential services and apps.” This means that the firewall allows your Mac to find authorized services provided by other computers on your network, but prevents connections to all other sharing services.
