Anyone here use this on their Mac? If so what default rules are ok to disable, as i have noticed there are a few on there that dont really need to be there as far as i am concerned.

I mean why do i need all the Me stuff if i never even use it

I guess in theory it's Ok to disable absolutely everything... then re-create the rules as you go along, deciding what you want to allow external access.

Depends on your uses. If you want your email, allow Mail... if you want to surf allow Safari, if you want to have your Mac set the time for you, allow NTPd, etc.

At the end of the day if you yank the network cable (or disable wifi) your Mac will continue to work, so it doesn't really *NEED* internet connectivity to function, obviously there's is just increased functionality to be gained by letting things access the net.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
