Activate the firewall in Debian based distros

  • Open a terminal and type or copy and paste the following:
    sudo ufw enable
  • Enter your password at the prompt
Your firewall should now be activated.

 
To check the status of the firewall:
  • Open a terminal and type or copy and paste the following:
    sudo ufw status verbose
  • Enter your password at the prompt
The output should look something like this:
 
Status: active
Logging: on (low)
Default: deny (incoming), allow (outgoing), disabled (routed)
New profiles: skip
