10.3: Personal ipfw firewall configuration startup items fix
Authored by: pjw on Nov 06, '03 12:36:02PM

What is the "Super Server"? Is it inetd? If so, shouldn't your firewall start *before* inetd starts? I built my own startup item for this and mine requires Network before starting. Anyone have any other thoughts on how this should work?

Super Server is /System/Library/StartupItems/IPServices.
This is what you find in StartupParameters.plist:

Description = "Internet services";
Provides = ("Super Server", "Config Server");
Uses = ("mDNSResponder", "Portmap", "NetworkExtensions");

About ipfw, I also tried to set "Network" in require field. I was able to login, but when I typed "sudo ipfw list" in terminal my rules were not active.
