It did work in 12.04 ... now there's a wifi site login I use that doesn't seem to log in with ufw enabled. After running
sudo ufw disable
it works fine.
The rules I used both times I got from:
I did it again to see if I made an error the 1st time. It acted exactly the same way.
Now, are there any ufw/gufw guides that actually explain it without assuming you're already a wireless expert and don't need proper examples that explain why you're doing this and don't just throw things in as an example without explaining whether it's appropriate to use it?
Please don't tell me I don't need a firewall in linux if I'm not running a server. I want one.
Please don't tell me to learn iptables. I'd actually rather use Windows than learn iptables unless I'm going to get paid for it.
Frankly, the state of guides for this sort of thing for those of us who aren't willing to dig that deep into the system, or those who aren't capable of it, is pathetic.
If someone could point me to a reliable guide that won't drive users back to windows, I'd be ecstatic.
