Q:Can I play Toontown through the OS X firewall?

A:Yes, but your firewall or proxy must allow Internet traffic to our game servers on ports 80 (the standard http port), 443 (the standard secure https port), and port 6667, which Toontown uses to connect to its game server. If your OS X firewall is enabled you must do the following to configure it to work with Toontown:

For Mac OS X:
  1. Open the Apple Menu.
  2. Click System Preferences.
  3. In the System Preferences window, click on Sharing.
  4. Click on the Firewall tab, then click New.
  5. Select Other from the Port Name drop-down menu.
  6. Enter 443, 80, 6667 in the Port Number, Range, or Series field, and Toontown Mac Client as the Description, then click OK.
  7. Finally, take a look at the bottom of the Allow list. It should now contain the Toontown entry.
  8. You can now close the Sharing window.

Congratulations! Your firewall should now allow traffic on the necessary ports to play Toontown from your Mac.
