    Anyone using ipfw to firewall their iPod? Any good rundown on how to block ip's or how to block ports etc.?

    Thanks!!

    There are many reasons to ask, but one quite simple one is the logging functions of IPFW. With logging functions we can learn a lot about what's going back and forth over wifi to Apple and other developer's servers. I'd love to know about all this. One of my favorite apps on the mac is Little Snitch- would love to know which apps are phoning home etc. etc.

    Cheers!

    ps- remember, Apple says they have a backdoor to your pod- I wonder how much info is sent... all contacts? all e-mails? Begs some interesting questions!
