Canon EOS Utility - Apple Mac OS: Error AlertTitle FireWallAlertMsg

When attempting to connect a recent model Canon EOS camera to the Canon EOS Utility app the following rather unhelpful message pops up:

AlertTitle FireWallAlertMsg
Error AlertTitle FireWallAlertMsg - what a helpful message!


The solution is to open up the Apple's firewall

The problem is with the Apple's firewall, not the router, and as always, once you work it out it's easy!

System Preferences / Security and Privacy / Firewall / Firewall Options / UNTICK Stealth Mode

A simple solution once you know how!

You may have to enter your system password to do this.
