I am new to Linux and I am using a live CD with mint mate. I wanted to open GUFW so I could see for myself that the firewall was on for when I go on the net, but there seems to be no way to open it. If someone knows how to open it could you let me know how.
The other thing that I would like to know is if the firewall is on by default because when I try to find out I get these confusing results.
sudo ufw status => status: inactive
sudo ufw enable => firewall is active and enabled on system startup
sudo ufw status => status: active
So is the firewall "active and enabled on system startup", and if so why does it say inactive when I first ask?
