10.4: Enable logging and other firewall features Network
Tiger only hintI was looking for something else in my Sharing preferences pane on the Firewall tab ... When I noticed the 'Advanced' button.

When clicked, it shows the new features in the OSX Firewall for the following:
  • Firewall logging -- enable and/or view
  • Stealth Mode
  • Block UDP traffic
As I am not the only one to not RTFM, and I know lots of people always ask about logging in the built-in firewall (which 10.3 lacked in the GUI),it's worth a hint.

10.4: Enable logging and other firewall features

Be careful about using the "Block UDP traffic" option. After I installed Tiger, I turned this option on, and later I couldn't access SMB file shares on my Windows machines. When I turned "Block UDP traffic" off, file sharing with Windows machines started working again.

I wonder if some significant fraction of the problems people have been reporting with Tiger and Windows file sharing are related to people turning this option on.

Had the same thing happen to me and it has been driving me nuts until I recently (yesterday) narrowed my not being able to logon to the Windohs shares here at home to these settings!
