10.5: Use a custom firewall in 10.5 with ipfw
Authored by: Brathahn on Nov 16, '07 12:19:20PM

Yep, you just stick the .plist into /Library/LaunchDaemons/

Here are the permission on my MBP

-rw-r--r-- 1 root admin 507 28 Jul 10:20 /Library/LaunchDaemons/ipfw_firewall.plist

You are supposed to run afterwards the following to activate it:

/bin/launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/ipfw_firewall.plist

see "man launchctl" for details. I said "supposed to" because I have seen occasions where stuff just works without the "launchctl" bit... but officially you should run it.
