    Since Apple stopped using "ipfw" as in the "Tiger" and developed their own homebrew Firewall. If I want the Firewall Service to be completely Disabled and use a third-part Firewall like "WaterRoof" (http://www.hanynet.com/waterroof/ ) for example or find a GUI that I can use with "ipfw" (Still in Leopard but not used). Is that possible and if so, How? Thanks!

    I am very interested in this too! However, I have yet had the time to really look into configuring ipfw manually. It's similar to iptables in Linux, really good but a pain to configure...

    See if this link helps:

    A blogpost on configuring ipfw. Please note I haven't vetted their code yet, so don't use their code blindly if you don't know what you're doing. :)
