    I’m really hoping that you will answer this. can shorewall be used together csf firewall?

  3. Rob Krul says:

    ufw is a decent firewall system for a standalone machine, but Shorewall is a more advanced firewall solution. In this article, I demonstrated how it would be configured over a two interface machine.

  4. gerrit says:

    What about this one: sudo ufw enable
    sudo ufw status verbose
    ufw disable
