Hi folks, not new to Linux but rather new to opensuse. I’m using opensuse 13.1.
I can not get gufw to load on start up with my few rules I use on other Linux OS.
I only have a few rules which are to Deny all in and out.
Then I load my rules as follow.
To Action From
80/tcp ALLOW OUT Anywhere
443/tcp ALLOW OUT Anywhere
25/tcp ALLOW OUT Anywhere
110/tcp ALLOW OUT Anywhere
143/tcp ALLOW OUT Anywhere
67/udp ALLOW OUT Anywhere
68/udp ALLOW OUT Anywhere
123/udp ALLOW OUT Anywhere
53 ALLOW OUT Anywhere
631 ALLOW OUT Anywhere
515 ALLOW OUT Anywhere
1194 ALLOW OUT Anywhere
I went to the GUFW site and posted a question and it seems I am not getting to far with it, hoping someone who used or tried gufw can view the post and maybe give me a few suggestions. Many Thanks for your time.
You do know that openSUSE has got a built-in firewall, do you?
You can set up the firewall in YaST (or switch it off if you want to use a different firewall).
I can’t help you with GUFW but I don’t think you actually need it.
Hi Kasi, I thank you for your reply. I see from my link above that GUFW is still looking into my problem.
I took a shine to opensuse lately and moved it to my main OS as I test usually per released OS.
Yast is very new to me but what I like about GUFW is that I can export my rules and load them into most other OS.
Usually I have most OS fully running with all my applications wanted with 10 to 15 min after loading the new OS.
I may just have to learn the yast firewall after all.
