Problem running gui part in ufw the gufw
Hi guys. I've installed the Gufw for ufw yesterday.
i tried it today and well nothing. I see no gui for ufw.
Have any of you had any similar problems with gufw on Debian ?
If i would want to open a port for ssh, ftp on my server
how should one do it. I am new to ufw or if you could recommend some other firewall. The default is to deny all incoming on ufw when running so that's good Thanks in advance guys..
Sry guys i did notice that this should perhaps have been posted under security questions

For me there is no substitute for using iptables directly. If I wanted to open up FTP and SSH, I'd run the following commands:
iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 21 -j ACCEPT iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT

If you installed gufw from the repositories, you should have /usr/bin/gufw
You can run
dpkg-query --listfiles gufw
to show what files were installed by the package. You are looking for the gufw executable file. I am running kUbuntu and it's /usr/bin/gufw , but it is possible it might be in /usr/sbin/gufw, in which case you would have to be root to run it. You are running a graphical desktop like gnome, xfce, or kde, right? If not, you will have no gui.
