[Bug 1523696] Re: Have a firewall GUI preinstalled or built-in - feature request


Will you use "firewalld-config" as the GUI for firewalld? Because that
doesn't offer you all the options that the command-line version does. So
perhaps you could make a built-in GUI which will work with and offer all
the options of firewalld?

  Have a firewall GUI preinstalled or built-in - feature request

Bug description:
  I think that it would be really good if gufw was installed by default
  as it is in Ubuntu MATE because all OSs really should have some
  security tools either preinstalled or built-in that allow for
  configuration which one would expect. So I think that either gufw
  should be preinstalled or there should be some built-in way in the
  gnome-control-center to configure iptables and also set what to do
  with incoming and outgoing traffic, and perhaps have the ability to
  create, import, and export profiles for these settings etc. I am
  running Ubuntu GNOME 15.10 with GNOME 3.18.
