IPFW help please.

Hi there.

Could someone help me translate this http://www.studyblog.net/2011/10/blo...dows-firewall/ into an IPFW rule?

Basically I need to block connections from a specific remote IP to any local IP, on all protocols, all ports.

Thanks in advance.

First if you are really interested in using IPFW then look at the free application WaterRoof.

Thanks a lot. WaterRoof did the trick.

For an OS advertised for it's user friendliness, a front end like that should be included by default. Not trying to bash OS X, it is my OS of choice after all, just saying...

Do note that as of Lion (10.7) ipfw has become deprecated. You should be using pf instead. The maker of Waterroof has a tool for pf as well called icefloor.
