Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Getting past firewall & something else? in Mac OS X
From: Dan Hsu (dkhsu_at_[hidden])

Blocking all firewall connections is unchecked, but the Apple gui could
provide adequate control. On reading a bit more on firewalls, second
party guis like IceFloor may provide finer control, as suggested in:

Will try this next.
