Gufw is running, but no ufw process running. Normal?

Asked by Eric Marceau on 2015-10-17

Gufw is protrayed as a front-end to ufw, but when Gufw is running, I don't see ufw running.

When ps -ef | grep ufw report processes for both ufw and gufw, or whould we only see gufw if Gufw is running?

Does Gufw have ufw integrated into its own code?

Does Gufw start ufw as part of its own startup routine, if not already started?

Linux -------- 3.13.0-65-generic #105-Ubuntu SMP Mon Sep 21 18:50:58 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Hi!
All it's iptables ;)
ufw is a frontend for iptables and Gufw a frontend for ufw.
Best regards!
