10.5: Control the firewall from the command line - GeekTool
Authored by: cxd101 on Jan 15, '08 05:18:09AM

MANY, MANY thanks for this post! Ever since I upgraded to Leopard, my firewall status "checker" using GeekTool has not worked, as I did not know what they new plist file was called. Using the information in this post, I was able to edit the GeekTool command, and it seems to work, as shown below:

if [ `defaults read "/Library/Preferences/com.apple.alf" globalstate` -eq 1 ];then EX=0;else EX=1;fi;exit $EX
