Re: Firewall on Mac OS X

Mac OS X comes with a firewall. Go to System Preferences, the Sharing panel, click on Firewall. You can also use Brickhouse to let you customize it a little more (http://www.securemac.com/brickhouse.php) I believe the built-in one is based on ipfw.

I'm looking for recommendations for a firewall to use on a Macintosh running
OS X. I'm running a demo of Netbarrier X and have a router in front of the
Mac. Nothing ever comes through the router so I have no idea if the firewall
offers any extra protection.

I also have a Sunblade 100 and need to install a firewall on it and thought
sun's free firewall would be good.
