Re: [OS X] PF Firewall FrontEnd

The reason that I asked if you have a router is because most routers will block incoming, outgoing, or both IPs, sites, Domains, even a whole country.

I am not 100% up to speed on the TC firewall, but I believe it can be done.

It has been my experience that most consumer-grade routers will not handle advanced stuff such as country blocking- you
need after-market (Linux-based) software for this.

I am using the Home (free) edition of Astaro Security Gateway (now renamed as Sophos UTM) on a PC that I assembled for this purpose- it has all of these advanced blocking features.

Maybe not all routers with stock FW can do this (SOHO) routers that most folks buy.

You may have to slap Tomato or DD-WRT on it, but it can be done.
