    Welcome to openSUSE Forums. Please be more specific about your technical issues. What have you tried and what is not working as expected? Are you following any particular guide?

    FWIW, here’s a great introductory article about using both Firewalld and OpenSnitch together to help with online security…

    It is a Fedora-based article but the principles apply to openSUSE as well. It might answer some of the questions you have.

    Code:
    opensnitch-ui
    That is the GUI (front-end).

    What does the following report?
    Code:
    sudo systemctl status opensnitchd
