    Hi all,

    I have had my iMac for a month or so now but due to me buying too many Xbox 360 games last month I have only just got my iMac online and I am wondering if there is a need for a firewall on OS X? I know that you don't need an anti-virus on it but I'm not sure about a firewall. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    PS. Be nice I'm new to OS X:p

    OSX already comes with a firewall, it is located in the sharing pane of the system preferences.

    OK thanks. I thought that it would but I didn't know where to find it.
