Hi Robert!
After you do all of the changes in Gufw, the settings are still in place until the next changes.
Best regards :)

Thank you for the response costales, but I would appreciate a bit of clarification. You state that "the settings are still in place until the next changes." Is logging out or rebooting considered to be a change? Gufw is off very time one of these is done and I have to go in and manually turn it back on.

Thanks in advance!

Don't worry :) Which Gufw version are you using?
I recommend you the last: http://gufw.org/new
For your question: Yes, All you change in Gufw will apply into the system, then all the settings will persist in the reboots ;)

I may have an older version. (But I just installed it a week ago using the Ubuntu Software Center.) How do I find out which version I have?

Hi Robert! Which Ubuntu version do you have?

Robert Kraig (kraigr1) said : #6

At the risk of sounding dumb, how do I determine which version I have?

If you tell me your Ubuntu version, I could tell you :)
In other way, go to Help menu > About :D
Best regards!

I wonder if Robert is opening gufw and seeing the unauthenticated screen. When he authenticates, the status is displayed, but not until then. Perhaps that is giving the impression that the firewall is disabled. Robert can check by restarting, opening a terminal, and entering the command, "sudo ufw status". He should open the terminal before authenticating in gufw, just to raise confidence level.

Can you help with this problem?
