Thinking about setting up UFW and paranoid as I'm will I set default as deny :lolflag:

Question is what ports do I need to have open, for web browsing, torrent, msn, irc, mplayer (streaming), update (ubuntu), thunderbird.things to have the system working but still safe.

Each app is different and you will want to research each one. Some common ports are here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_TCP_and_UDP_port_numbers
