Zorin firewall

I am new to Zorin and I have basic knowledge, I want to know that if I enable firewall without setting any rules then I am safe?


Yes; in fact it is recommended to not adjust the GUFW settings unless an advanced user.
But the default settings on the firewall are quite safe.

but when I enable firewall then Zorin connect doest not work, it does not connect to my mobile, for connection , I just add just one rule please take a look is it safe?zorin connect

Those are safe, not sure if they will work.
From gufw configuration GUI, you can hit the rules tab and the remove icon on the bottom to remove the rules that you select in the window. Once they are removed, open a terminal with ctl+alt+t and enter in each of these:

sudo ufw allow 1714:1764/udp

sudo ufw allow 1714:1764/tcp

sudo ufw reload

Once done, log out and in and please test your Zorin Connect.

If that does not work, you can try:

sudo ufw deny 1714:1764/udp && sudo ufw deny 1714:1764/tcp

sudo ufw reload

sudo ufw allow 1716:1764/udp

sudo ufw allow 1716:1764/tcp

sudo ufw reload

If that still does not work, you can try reinstalling the Zorin Connect extension in case the extension has a corruption:

sudo apt install --reinstall gnome-shell-extension-zorin-connect

Reinstall the app on your mobile device, as well, then Test for connection.

thank you Aravisian for your help.it works fine on the first attempt.


I was trying to leave the computer so was editing in as much as possible to cover any additional possibilities before running away. :smiley:

completely unrelated but I like the font face showing on your screen shot :heart_eyes:
