    To add exceptions click on firewall options and click the + sign to add blackberry link.
    Now to add nginx and peer manager,
    Go to: applications >right click BlackBerry Link >open package contents >resources> find p2p folder > drag peer manager to the firewall options box. Do the same with nginx.

    Hopefully it works for you. And i do agree that we might have to do something with the terminal. To allow a connection.

    Did this work for anyone? I did this as well and I can not see my files.

    The files show up fine when I turn the firewall off so at least I know communication between my Z10 and my mac is happening just not with the firewall turned on. =(

    To all those who got it working, does BlackBerry Link (BlackBerry vpn) interfere with your Internet connection making it unusable until the vpn is disabled and the router reset?

    Mac/OSX Users: I did a little digging and found the following. If you're comfortable with webserver and firewall routing table configuration you may want to try the following to see if you can get your osx machine to respond to requests with the firewall turned on. I have not had the time to try this out myself but figured it would be useful to anyone who is curious and has some free time to try it.

    1. BB Link remote acccess appears to use an embedded web server called ngnix. Configuration is located at: /Library/Application%20Support/BlackBerry/PeerToPeer/nginx_conf.xml
    2. Ngnix appears to have trouble responding to requests when the OSX firewall is turned on. A possible solution is described on this thread: osx - On Mac OS X Leopard, how can I setup an web server (nginx) without being blocked by the Firewall? - Stack Overflow
    3. doc page for controlling ngnix: Controlling nginx

    Gray I had exactly what you had, just reboot your Z10 and voila...!
    Need to restart, or reset a BlackBerry Z10 smartphone? Hereís how!

    To restart a BlackBerry Z10 smartphone

    Press and hold the Power/Lock key following by tapping Restart

    A real sight of beauty. Works like a charm now, no firewall related issues at all.

    Pierre







    Didn't work. I'll try and reboot and see what happens.

    I got a new laptop PC and installed BB Link same as on the old one where the RFA works well, but was not able to RFA on the new one. Both systems are pretty identical with respect to OS. Old is Win 7 Ultimate the new is Win 7 Pro. I just got it to work finally! The one difference I saw from old to new laptop is that on the new laptop my BlackBerry Virtual Private Network was disabled in Network Connections. I right-clicked it, enabled it and then restarted the computer. Sorry if this was covered somewhere (I don't have the time to re-read this monster of a thread), but I think it might have had something to do with my issues.

    Didn't Link have an option where you could back up your apps and contact information over wifi? I had that experience before but I'm not seeing the option at all :s

    Couldn't find a clear answer to this..
    Wake on Lan.. anybody have it working.
    Not over wifi but remotely, this way I could let my computer sleep and save power.

    I am familiar with port forwarding and such too but haven't found a way to do this yet.

    Yes!

    Now I have access to all my files...EVERYWHERE and I don't have to rely on some cloud storage provider. I am my own cloud storage provider.

    Thanks 2 quick questions:

    Do you have to be signed into BlackBerry Link on your home computer & it's just open & running?

    If so, does that also mean anyone on your home computer on the end can also have the same full access to files on your device??

    Thanks.

    No.

    You can close Link on your home computer and the manager continues to run. Your computer has to be on, but it can be locked.

    I am running Macfee on my PC and the only way I can get this to work is to turn off the firewall! Not practical for extended periods of time. Any idea on how to configure my firewall to allow this to work?
