Where do I find firewall log on mountain lion 10.8.2?

I have a problem with refused connections and I want to see if the firewall prevents me from connecting.


The file is located in /var/log/appfirewall.log and you can access that by using your favorite command-line text editor or alternatively you can use the Apple Console application. On the left pane of the Console app, you see "/var/log" and a bunch of files - appfirewall.log is one of the first ones.

  • to see what's going on I use tail -f /var/log/appfirewall.log Jun 18 '13 at 1:53
