Poser 11 macOS firewall annoyance

I'm running latest high sierra, but I have been using poser for years with previous OSs too. I have never had that problem that Andy is so nicely demonstrating. I don't use a firewall.
I have a router Firewall, too, but I don't really understand the tech so I enabled the macOS Firewall just in case
@anomalaus I thought I did report it, but having a look into my previous cases would suggest otherwise. I'll report it now and see what become of it...
As much of a pain as it is, can I please ask anyone who is experiencing this to send an email to SM https://support.smithmicro.com/customer/portal/emails/new
I've tried to explain this best I could and even said others are also experiencing this and linked back to here, only to be told that they don't have any issues on their end and that no one else has reported anything about this.
For those who don't get this message, if you enable your system firewall do you start getting it too?
have been updating to macOS Mojave and the same problem
all SmithMicro Poser installer certificates are no longer valid (out of date so to speak) and this is the problem
can't believe this that SM isn't housekeeping their Poser installers

@posebaker it's been glaringly obvious that many things did not get a proper handover when the Poser Team changed, especially the installers. What users had come to expect: Web site update notifications with release notes detailing changes/additions/bug fixes from the previous release, documentation updates, network render updates to match the core release version. All remain outstanding.
Well, I've given up. I tried again this week, but there isn't anything else I can do, their response still stands.
"Again, we have no other report and no one in our Engineering team has been able to duplicate it."
well, of course not if they (most likely) have disabled the macOS Firewall
this whole thing sucks
xcuse ma Frentch

@a_sunbeam It's not good to just turn off the software firewall if you don't have to. You could simply open the port on which Poser is talking, instead. Why not turn off? Because it also protects against malicious software that may be lurking on your computer, spreading to others!
would you care sharing how this is done step by step or are expecting everyone to be a network administrator ?
