Something like

Code: Select all

sudo ufw allow proto tcp from 192.168.0.0/24
I believe


or you can install firestarter directly through synaptic or other package manager and then use that (Can't verify because I'm using windows)

you can do virtually everything through the gui... for example above there's a program called Firestarter to configure the firewall. but you just have to install it.


as for cli stuff, I tend to keep everything down to a need to know basis, if it's general shell commands (probably bash) something such as this should prove useful. Otherwise if it's more specific to an application itself, I'll look either at the man page or the homepage for the application,
