Hi,

I've had a delve into the Mac firewall settings and come across some worrying messages in the firewall log. Does anyone known what these mean and should I be concerned ? I'm using stealth mode and I've set access only to essential services.

Any enlightenment would be appreciated as I don't know much about the security protocols.

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards

QUOTE Thanks
