Blackberry Link only works over USB, not Wifi on Mac

I am unable to get Blackberry Q10 to sync with a Mac unless I have a USB cable set up.

 

I've attempted Wifi and Bluetooth with no luck.  I've even tried many different Wifi networks.

Are you able to ping the IP address of the phone?

[Solved] Re: Blackberry Link only works over USB, not Wifi on Mac

Aahh.. pinging the phone would be a smart thing to do... 

 

Turns out there are two firewalls on a mac... the default one, and on mine a 3rd party called Intego.

 

I disabled the firewall and everything is OK

 

Do you know what ports need to be open?

Depending on your router you may be able to snoop on what ports are being pinged and open them up.
