I was watching The Screen Savers (Tech TV) one night and Leo mentioned that OS 10 had a built-in firewall (thereby eliminating the need for Norton or something after-market). He mentioned that it was not easy to configure and that they would have a segment on it in an upcoming show. Well, I watched the night it was supposed to air and they did not cover the topic. I have checked several MAC OS X books and none of them mention it. A few questions:

1.) Did they actually ever do a segment on The Screen Savers? If so, could you provide a link to the story on their website?

2.) Does anyone know anything about this?

3.) Has anyone seen anything about this in a MAC OS X reference book?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Well, I can answer part of the question but raise another: the built-in firewall works by default and can be additionally configured if needed through some shareware applications like Firewalk (v. 2.0 just released). I never use that and I installed Norton PF anyway, since I had it. What I would like to know is whether and how the 2 apps work together. Anyone?
