    Geez, I thought Ubuntu was supposed to be the helpful place.

    Seriously, though, take the advice of others and stick to the software center until you have learned more about linux.

    From what I can gather, OP is just trying to configure his firewall and under the mistaken impression that GUFW won't do what he wants it to.

    Therefore, he is trying to download and install an alternate app. I've mentioned that:

    1. GUFW does indeed filter IPs, and
    2. It is not a good idea for new users to go outside of the repositories, much less compile a new program from source.

    @OP

    If you don't like GUFW, you can try Firewall Builder, which is also available in the repos and can be downloaded by doing:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install fwbuilder
    I use fwbuilder to build my rules set for my router which has been converted to dd-WRT and it works quite nicely. Documentation like users manual and tutorials can be downloaded straight from their site and are very clear and helpful with plenty of examples. ***REPEAT*** Do not download the app from the site--only the docs. Downloading apps outside of the repos is a bad Windows practice that is neither safe nor necessary.

    Thanks. For some reason none of the replies showed when I read the OP.

    Re: Installing applications

    Then what you want is a blocklist for Transmission, not a whole new firewall builder.

    A quick Google search should yield some URLs for Transmission blocklists. Paste the URL into the Transmission preferences window and it will keep you safe.
