Basically I need a shell script to change Firewall State when on a specific IP address. If its on this 192.169 IP address turn firewall app off, but it needs to read the state of the firewall first.

Someone helped me with part of this but I just found out I need something else add.
here is what I have but it is not working. I'm getting error.

Thanks you so much
#Get IP Address

ifconfig -a | grep 192.169

if [ $? -eq 0 ]

then

#disable firewall

If ['defaults read "/Library/Preferences/com.apple.sharing.firewall" state' -eg 1] then

defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.alf globalstate -int 0

killall -HUP socketfilterfw

echo "Firewall Off"
 

else

#Enable firewall to Set access for specific services and applications

If ['defaults read "/Library/Preferences/com.apple.sharing.firewall" state' -eg 0] then

defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.alf globalstate -int 1

killall -HUP socketfilterfw

echo "Firewall On"

fi
