Hello all Smile


I've just installed tiger and I'm looking around it and I thought it had a built in firewall? Is this correct?

If so where is this feature located?

Thanx
Bigmac


P.S I'm right annoyed because I can't find my iLife dvd Sad What luck!!

That's it. It will hide stealth all ports. Starting a shared service will automatically open those ports in the firewall. I believe it enables any incoming connection that is a response to an outgoing connection so you should never have to change the settings.

I haven't upgraded to Tiger yet. Is it correct that Tiger's stealth mode blocks UDP ports while Panther does not?

Has anyone come up with a simple way to block UDP ports on Panther?

The closest I've found is this:

Just thought I'd check in before jumping in.
