Turning on a Software Firewall on a Mac Prep Step

This post is here to provide information on how to turn on a software firewall.  It is done in preparation for my series Routers – Hardware Firewalls Vs Software Firewalls.

Software Firewall

I would like to start by saying please check the status of your firewall.   If you are on a Mac I have included screen captures for you to check with.  Yes on a mac you should have your firewall turned on as well.  Unlike current Windows, the Macs software firewall is NOT turned on by default.
