http://askubuntu.com – question concerning the ufw firewall : sudo ufw enable returns Firewall is active and enabled on system startup sounds fine, but when i start gufw after reboot, it is still off what does that mean ? the gui is off and the firewall is running ? (i know ufw is the command line to set iptables) (HowTos)
