    thanks gbudny that worked, editing with text edit makes everything much easier


    What I need to ask is what services should I block:

    telnet

    ssh

    I need to block that windows one samba because the hackers use that too.

    anymore obvious ones?

      I think you should block Telnet

      "Because it isnít as secure as SSH, Telnet access isnít enabled by default"

          Yes. However you can install a graphical version of vim for OS X:

          Do you think about TextEdit?

          sudo /Applications/TextEdit.app/Contents/MacOS/TextEdit filename
          There is also emacs and nano which come with OS X.

            to use nano in os x's terminal with a file the size of 'services' is a fucking pain....

            is that 'vim' thing working in os x's terminal?

            anyway to edit this file using a normal text editor?
            You could just enable root user in OS X, log in as it and then edit your files from a comfort of a gui if you wish and disable it after you are done your changes.
