Hello Derek,

The best I've found is just this ... nothing more satisfactory yet.

$ /usr/libesec/ApplicationFirewll/socketfilterfw -h

usage: ./socketfilterfw [-c] [-w] [-d] [-l] [-T] [-U] [-B] [-L] [-a
listen or accept] [-s file to sign] [-v file to verify] [-p pid to
write]
firewallapp is used to control Application Firewall socket filter.
The command takes the following options that are evaluated in order,
and several options may be combined:
-h display this help and exit
-t app set trusted app, e.g. -t app1 app2 app3
-i dump socket filter internal data info
-d turn on debugging
-l do logging and run in daemon mode
-k kill daemon
-a ask when listen or accept, ask "accept" or ask "listen"
-s file sign file
-v file verify file
-c check file

In addition, I know that for some services, you can see if they have
been started in launchd. For example:
launchctl list | grep com.apple.RemoteDesktop.agent

If the PID exists, ARD is running and is allowed through the firewall.

As for other applications, I don't know yet. I'll be curious to see
answers to your question that are more helpful than this! :)

Best wishes,
Scott
