    Why not just use LittleSnitch? It's the absolute best at what it does.

    Then configure the Mac OS X firewall properly via Terminal.

    I agree

    The new version of Little Snitch is great plus they now offer a family package for ppl like me with more than 2 comps in the house.

    You can download and use a utility called WaterRoof to change the built in port filtering firewall (called IPFW.) WaterRoof is a GUI so you won't have to use the terminal. You could just block the port used by the app in question.

    is there a good guide for IPFW configuration (using waterproof or terminal) for latest leopard release?
