Broadband Internet Access - How do I configure Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger Firewall?


I just got Comcast broadband internet access today and I need to know how to configure the firewall. I have a Motorola SB5120 SURFboard Cable Modem, Power Mac G5, Dual 2.7 GHz, 2.5 GB RAM, and Mac OS X 10.4.2.

Do I just click "Start" in Sharing for the Firewall? Any special configurations that should be set? I don't have any services turned-on, and I enabled "Block UDP Traffic", "Enable Firewall Logging", and "Enable Stealth Mode".

Any other recomendations that I and others here might find useful or necessary?

Best regards,

Just start the Firewall, that's it.

Necessary - depends how how much secret government information you have on your machine :)
