Turning off the Mac's security is not the only way around the problem, at least not on Mavericks and I don't think on Mountain Lion either. If Italo's article (which I don't have time to look at right now to refresh my memory) doesn't cover the way I do it, then I should write a short how-to on the topic. I have two Macs running different versions of OS X.
