    Mrk, well done as usual :thumb:

    I have one suggestion, though: You mention that in Ubuntu the firewall is disabled by default, but I think it isn't clear enough that ufw is exclusively available in Ubuntu. So newbies might mistakenly regard gufw as a tool to manage iptables under other Linux distros.

    You might also want to add this link to your article to give a better undersatnding what ufw is all about.

    Thanks for the update. Indeed, it was not clear enough. You can have ufw/gufw on other distros, but it takes a bit of juggling to get things sorted out properly.
