    Default tomcat.exe

    Hello all,

    Getting a tomcat.exe warning every time I boot up. I checked "always allow" but it still pops up? It seems to be part of the java application. Thanks!

    But why does it come back (showing the same port each time) on every boot-up after I check the box "always allow"?
