Hi there ! ...

Well, I have noticed, that in the program-packet is 2 or 3 different firewalls to download and install, if you wish ...

But is a firewall needed in Ubuntu 12.04 ?

And if, what of the 3 do you recommend ?

Can remember the 3 names, but one of the is "Firestarter", I believe it is called.

I am on a router with a cable ...

But should I install some sort of firewall - " just in case" ?

Greetings to you all from Jørn Rudolph in Copenhagen, Denmark
