I'm thinking about setting up UFW and since I'm a newbie was I hoping that there is someway to see what IP, Protocol's, port's that is in use atm, to hopefully make configuring easier. Is there a way to do this?

I believe that Firestarter, which is in the repositories is a GUI front end for the firewall.

The program called "iftop" should be useful to you.

Even though it's a terminal program it's still very useful.

iftop: display bandwidth usage on an interface by host

just type the following in the terminal


sudo apt-get install iftop


then type in iftop in the terminal and you are ready to go(you might have to type in sudo iftop since well, sometimes it won't let you access your network cards input output info for security reasons)
