As root, do: sysctl net.inet.udp.blackhole=1 do the same for: net.inet.tcp.blackhole=2 You can use either a "1" or "2" for TCP. I would use a "2". man blackhole - for more details. If they work for you , add them to /etc/sysctl.conf as just: net.inet.tcp.blackhole=2; so they'll be turned on when you reboot.
