Firewall settings new NIS 5
I have a couple questions on setting up my firewall. I just upgraded to Lion and NIS 5.
I have turned off all sharing services on my Mac but when i view current connections on my Norton Firewall i see under Servers & Ports that Windows File Sharing (137 & 138) both appear to be in listening mode. I have also blocked both incoming and outgoing connections to Windows File Sharing. Why would these still appear in the listening mode? I've also notice Launchd in the Applications that is connected to the internet. Launchd wasn't connected when i was using Snow Leopord. Are these two things anything to worry about or is there a way to completely turn off?
Also in looking at my advanced firewall settings there are 2 items which I do not fully understand so I'm not sure what to check.
Enable Auto Setup
Always allow broadcast & multicast traffic (and also the Protect UDP & ICMP services)
Should these settings be enabled?
Thank you for your help. Hopefully these aren't ridiculously dumb questions.
