Re: Gufw fails to show up in System Settings


I'm the wrong person to talk to about Ubuntu firewall policies ..... because I'm real dummy when it comes to such issues :^(

But quite a while back, maybe around Lucid, I needed to edit 'iptables' to allow access from a specific source - information I can't share publicly - so I actually payed someone to show me how to do it.

With 'gufw' it's a simple copy-n-paste but I do also know how to do it using 'ufw' from the command line. It's just not as simple.

Almost off-topic but when Debian Squeeze was released I tried installing 'ufw' but, if memory serves correctly, it was un-installable due to a some conflict with Debian's 'iptables' rules.

Anyway I just like using Gufw in the *buntu family because it's simple enough for a dummy like me to use :^)

Good call on this one, I was also investigating the possibility that something was wrong with it. Would be nice to have an entry. Is this the default Firewall config in Ubuntu now?

In standard Ubuntu 'gufw' now shows up in System Settings -> Other as Firewall Configuration but it shows up nowhere in Ubuntu GNOME Remix using "classic (no effects)".

Is that a bug? And, if so, what package should it be filed against?

Launching it using "gksu gufw" works and I doubt it's an often used app so it's not a bug deal.
