UFW Firewall not working properly

Asked by Blum on 2011-08-13

Hi,

I am a new user to UFW. As I like to test thing first my first configuration is the following:

État : actif
Journalisation : on (high)
Par défaut : allow (entrant), deny (sortant)
Nouveaux profils : skip

I would expect not to be able to do anything on the internet like surfing on the web as the outgoing traffic ("sortant" in french) is put on deny...i am however able to write this log on the net...

Can anyone help me with this? Is my test wrong? Am I wrong somewhere in my rationale?

Thanks a lot,

Lionel

Also i have to precise that I am intending to do this on my wlan0 interface not with the eth0,...Maybe this can help identify the issue?

Thanks!!
