    So...I finally bought Little Snitch...it seems to be working...unfortunately, the documentation on the Objective Development site does not answer my questions...nor, unfortunately, do the ObjDev tech support...so...once again I take refuge in macrumors...I haven't been let down yet!
    My question: what are the default settings? what is being filtered out right now? I'd like to be asked before *anything* leaves my computer...in the Little Snitch section of System Preferences, the first few lines of preferences read:
    Any Application Allow TCP Connections to 0.0.0.0-0.0.0.255
    Any Application Allow any connection to your local network

    and so on...I thought I didn't want to allow connections without my ok...I know I'm reading this wrong...but my thick skull can't quite figure it out! HELP!

    Thanks for your reply Varmit!
    I know the problem is my extremely limited tech knowledge...in layman's terms, could you explain what exactly is being filtered with the defaults? I notice that Little Snitch responds to the Apple updates, so I know something is being filtered, but is everything being filtered? I followed the links you provided, but couldn't find and/or decipher my answer there...Thanks again for any direction you can give!
