    Personal Firewall
    Hi folks, does anyone of you know about a personal firewall on where I can create in a easy way rules for app to avoid them connect to internet without my knowledge??

    Normally I've to provide app full path to be internet access blocked but really I don't know how in MacOS, and am reading about built in firewall and for me seems like a server firewall, not like a personal one!!!

    So far I've found a few tools but those ask me about app name and port!! am varely new to mac's and I don't know how to monitor which port is being used I got a G4 MacMini and iMac Intel but in none of them am able to figure it out.....

    Any hints will be appreciated!

    Thank you in advance.

    Little Snitch is the app of choice for this I believe.
