Please provide a GUI based firewall client
I'm new to linux but any GUI firewall which shows incoming and outgoing connections and can block them by a simple click will be awesome.
I used Glasswire firewall on Windows for that. But now I'm full-time linux because Microsoft sucks and Linux is great
"gufw is awful tbh"
Can you please explain why ? I don't have enough technical expertise or experience to defend 'gufw'. It's only out of interest, I am asking. But since 'ufw' is already included in Solus repos, right now 'gufw' seems to be the logical answer for the GUI need, right ? But 'gufw' in my experience has worked well and it is very easy and straight forward to configure gufw for basic to moderate needs.
If it go to stable, does it mean that it will be included ootb in the next snapshots? I remember that a gui firewall was one of the requirements to have a firewall preinstalled on Solus.
I would like to ask if there is already a how-to guide on installing PeerGuardian Linux. Based on my research it is still the only blocklist tool available, although it hasn't been updated in awhile should still work. I am stuck on the Installation process. Is there a simple way to manage blocklists, and temporarily and permanently allow/block IPs with a mouse-click (similar to PeerBlock for Windows)? If you know how to install pgl on solus, please point me in the right direction and let me know here (or PM me on https://solus-project.com/forums/)
@lethed Unfortunatly, I am not sure about it either. I hope that at some point a firewall will be installed by default but I think the consensus of the Solus team was at that time to vote against it but to leave it up to the user to install and configure it. Of course, there is also the question to what extent a firewall is helpful when there are probably better solutions to install firewalls at the router level. If anyone of the Solus team reads this, I'd be happy to have further discussions about this. I good step would also be to include different firewall configuration options in the help center.
