    Unhappy Server 10.4 firewall

    I cocked up me firewall.

    I gave access to all ports to the local ip range and now cannot connect to the server admin.

    Anyone know how to reset the damn thing? I cannot access any settings in the server admin?

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks.

    PS i found a ipfw -flush command. Does this do the trick?

    I have tried to remove the plist files in the ipfilter folder but that did not resolve the issue.

    Ouch!

    Well, here's a link to a site I have used for IPFW stuff on server for a long time:

    http://www.macdevcenter.com/pub/a/ma.../firewall.html

    The command to clean it all out that I have used is:

    sudo /sbin/ipfw -f flush

    But that was on an earlier version than 10.4. The command you should use is probably:

    sudo ipfw flush

    Let me know if/when you fix this. It would be good to file somewhere.

    Good luck!

    Red face All good now.

    I got in this morning and ran the command and indeed it flushed the rules (ipfw -f flush) with sudo use.
    I also found that the dns entries had been editied so was the reason i couldn't connect locally.

    It may have been a mixture of both but the main reason would be the DNS. I don't remember changing the dns entry though
