    Its all in the network sharing section, in system preferences

    But you really have to open ports on your internet router if you are using wifi, since that's the device that has most of its ports closed off.

    A mac behind a router, even with its firewall turned off on the mac will be pretty secure, since its the router is the device guarding the network and should be keeping most ports closed off
