Indigo will not startup unless I type in authentaication

Hello Good People,

Can some please assist with this issue. Indigo will not startup if I am not at the keyboard to type in an authentication password. I have made the adjustments in the keychain but still the same.
The image provided is requesting authentication from another computer on the network.

Any tips?

T.I.A.

Re: Indigo will not startup unless I type in authentaication

It looks like you have a startup trigger that's running an AppleScript to talk to iTunes on a different Mac. It's likely that the password on that Mac has changed which is why it's prompting you. We never recommend putting AppleScripts that talk to remote Macs in embedded scripts because of the potential of hanging everything up (AppleScript timeouts are very long).

Make it an external script - so if the script hangs up it will only hang that one script up and the server will continue to process normally.

Or even better, just use the iTunes plugin rather than the script.
