    i recently downloaded a widget for konfabulator calledknocknock

    and noticed a lot of connections to my computer that i don't recognize the IP address....

    is there an easy way to terminate connections...and a way in the terminal?

    you could try turning on the firewall (in the sharing panel in system prefs)

    the thing is though, that i set my computer up so i can share to people...assuming they have login/pass for different accounts...but some of the IPs that are returning to me i don't recognize

    so you know all the IP's of your account holders? What kind of server are you running? You can set up your firewall to only alow your "trusted hosts" to get in. Also, depending on what kind of server you are running, your serverApp might beable to block some people as well. You should only have the services that you need to be exposed to the outside world.

    ftp, ssh, Hotline, Carracho, KDX, ...???
