    I'm wondering what settings you are using for the Leopard firewall.

    Mine is currently "Allow all incoming connections."

    I ran a Shields Up Test found here: https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2

    and passed all of the tests.

    Would it be safer to change the Firewall to "Allow only essential services." or "Set access for specific services...."??


    Thanks :)

    Definitely set access for specific services. Allow all isnt the best idea. Im pretty sure "allow only essential services" is block all traffic except info to apple (like info on what youre doing?).

    I dont really know much about firewalls.
