Setting firewall using ufw


UFW is a firewall in Debian/Ubuntu Operating systems.

Enabling the firewall
root@suede:/# ufw enable

Firewall is active and enabled on system startup

Allowing ssh port :

root@suede:/# ufw allow 22/tcp
Rule added
root@suede:/# ufw allow 22/udp
Rule added

Listing the status :
root@suede:/# ufw status
Status: active

You can delete the rules as
