GUFW a GUI interfaced LINUX Firewall Management App.

Many will say this is unnecessary and will be correct. Linux firewall is one of the strongest out of the box even tho it is not enabled by default.
The only thing I was really interested in was it's firewall logging abilities. Which turns out was the only thing I have not been able to use correctly.

Further research shows I installed a very old version and there is a newer available thru terminal.
Now I need to find the best method to uninstall the one I have now but only the GUFW app.

Any thoughts on this?

In Synaptic Package Manager, you can type in gufw, it will appear and you can mark for complete removal (not just removal) - this should get rid of any configuration files and dependencies as well. I think with gufw that is just "python-netifaces".

 

Other than that from Terminal you could use

sudo apt-get remove gufw

OR

sudo apt-get purge gufw

The latter will remove config files as well.

 

Al1000 had a Topic kicking around somewhere about whom (by IP addresses) was trying to access your computer, you might be interested in that as well?

 

Cheers

@dannyboy

Could you explain what you mean by found a newer one in terminal? I could be mistaken, but I thought gufw updated regularly as a security update... :scratchhead:


Whatever it was...I didn't do it!

Thanks Wizard and 66batmobile.

My concern is both apps are named the same. If I uninstall the first one will I still have the newer version to reinstall?

@batmobile I found the one I installed with an exstensive Google search. I found a really old repository, no hash numbers. I guess it was from before they started useing them. I know the page did not look the same.

So, the one you currently have was not installed from Mint's software manager?

Let me get this straight, You want to update the User Interface to UFW,  ufw is a frontend for iptables and gufw is a front end for ufw.

No sir it was not. I found it from a google search about 9 pages of search results back. It was listed as a linux repository.
I admit I may have been too hastey to click since it only had a install button, no hash to check.

Just trying to determine what was actually installed before trying to remove anything...if you're running Mint 17.3, the one you want would be marked for Ubuntu 14.04...

To determine what you have and what's available in your operating system's own repositories, enter the following command in a terminal then copy and past the output into a post here.
apt-cache policy gufw
Generally speaking, it's advisable to install software from your operating system's own repositories rather than from repositories you find on the internet.

No mate, on two counts. One you can do it without the sudo, and two - no space between apt and -cache, so it's just

 

apt-cache policy gufw

 

... but you must be tired, too?

 

Cheers

Like the bit though, this apt has Super Cow Powers, hadn't seen that, lol

Yep, as Wiz says, no "sudo" and no space between apt- and cache. To make it as easy as possible, copy and paste the text from the box below into your terminal, in the same way as you copied from the terminal into your post here.
apt-cache policy gufw

A management GUI for Linux iptables may fix your issue. I'm using this toy right here. It automates rules and policies and works on multiple machines. I'm not sure about logging abilities, but I guess it wouldn't hurt trying the aforementioned. Worked wonders for me..
