10.10. Firewall

Asked by peter on 2010-12-12

Which one is the best firewall for Ubuntu 10.10?

I know Firestarter and Gufw. Both of them are running, but Firestarter finds always Sources they will get blocked in Firestarter. But they passed Gufw.

Does one Firewall exists, that is able to manage all the incoming messages?

Thanks in advance.
Peter

All those programs are just front ends to the Linux iptables tool which is the only Linux firewall. You need only one, pick any tool. All of them will let you block all incoming, in fact it is the default.
