Exactly how the software firewall in the Mac works depends on the
particular version of Mac OS. You can sort of control it through the
System Preferences > Security > Firewall panel, which gives you
various (fairly limited) options. To keep things simple, Apple
doesn’t have a lot of very precise control.
10.5 Leopard is fairly basic, with three main options for incoming
Allow essential only
Allow a specific list
There doesn’t appear to be any outbound restrictions.
10.6 Snow Leopard has, IIRC, some additional options, including one
where you can get prompted for connections, but I’m not on my Show
Leopard machine, so I can’t check.
thanx for info, but i’d better recommend to use this tool protemac.com/netmine/, it’s nice!)
