These instructions were taken from the Install SSH article. Disabling the firewall may be necessary for installing additional servers. It is not necessary for allowing SSH access.

Step 1

Create the directory fw in /Volumes/OSBoot/System/Library/StartupItems/.

Step 2

Create the file StartupParameters.plist in /Volumes/OSBoot/System/Library/StartupItems/fw/ with the following text:

  Description = "Firewall";
  Provides = ("Firewall");
  Requires = ("Network");
  OrderPreference = "None";

Step 3

Create the shell script fw in /Volumes/OSBoot/System/Library/StartupItems/fw/ with the following text:


/sbin/ipfw -f flush
/sbin/ipfw add 65535 allow ip from any to any
