I noticed that as part of installing Local, that my iMac’s firewall was turned off. I didn’t feel comfortable with this so after installation was complete, I turned my Mac’s firewall back on. What negative impact will this have, if any? Does it have something to do with creating a public view of my local site?
If you use the default macOS firewall settings, they should not cause any issues with running Local. You should be able to remain working in Local while the firewall is running. Let us know if there are any further questions about this!
