    Thanks mikewhatever. Now I am eager to know in what ways NFTABLES better than IPTABLES. If you know the answer please reply.
    I am waiting for a LTS release which will NFTABLES by default.

    I found this >> https://ungleich.ch/en-us/cms/blog/2...s-vs-nftables/
    So NFTABLES is easier to use in comparison to IPTABLES. IPTABLES despite being old is no less secure. In that case I am not in a hurry.
