    Exclamation System Preferences Firewall Assistance
    I've looked about everywhere for help on opening ports through firewall, they all say to do it under System Preferences>Sharing, but I don't see anything about my firewall... I need to add this port. Anyone willing to help?

    You do this via System Preferences > Security > Firewall > Advanced after turning on and hitting the little '+' button. This link also explains the process.

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Well this is what comes up when I do that... Is there any way to change it?

    EDIT: Well, I read how he sets it up, but i don't see options to set specific services or applications
