    Hey whats up. Im new here. I just switched over from Windows and bought a 20 inch iMac. I was just wondering what settings to use with the Firewall. I just went into sharing and click on Start Firewall and enabled Firewall logging. Is there any other specific things I should be doing?

    Thanks alot

    Nah. Not really. You can use the Services tab in the same preference.pane to open up for those services you want to run (if any) or, for other things, just open the ports using the Firewall tab: Just click New and choose the port from the drop down. Then sit back and feel the safety... ;)

    PS! Keep current backup! Even if we're safe from viruses and (most) cracking at the moment, there's more ways to loose all your data, like hard disk crash, theft or fire. Backup is a good thing... :)
