In my last post I talked about how to install GUFW to configure your Ubuntu firewall. Even though UFW is the default firewall configuration tool for Ubuntu, Firestarter has been a popular alternative for it.
Installing Firestarter is very easy. Just go to the Applications menu and click on Add/Remove. Then search for “firestarter”. Once you find it, select it and click on Apply Changes.
After the installation completes, you can open Firestarter by going to Applications -> Internet -> Firestarter OR System -> Administration -> Firestarter.
Note: Don’t install BOTH Firestarter and GUFW as it may prevent each other from functioning properly. You can try both and stick to the one you like most.
