Well, I did that, and studied other documents as well, and have packet filters 
running right now. I also did a search of the document you suggested and it 
doesn't even have the word "close" in it, therefore, it would appear to not 
address the issue. From your reply, I'm missing something obvious here. But 
would you point it out anyway?

There's this thing called pf, you should really look into it.  Start with:
man pf
Then try reading the pf FAQ.

If that is too confusing, google for a basic tutorial on network security.
