Often I want to open a port on my laptop for others to test. Does anyone
know
how, without dumping the entire Apple firewall, I can open ports in the
81-89 and 8000-8999 range?

Thanks

You can enter port ranges in the OS X firewall configuration.

Just go to Sharing -> Firewall in System Preferences,
and hit "New...", and select "Other..." from the popup.

Then enter 81-89,8000-8999 in the "TCP" field,
and choose a name you like, and hit OK, that should do it.

Works like a charm! I'm used to my firewall appliances and wasn't
finding the
port range dealie. Too obvious :)

Thanks!
