    UFW port allow question

    Hi

    I want to set a rule in UFW to allow incoming traffic only for qBitTorrent.
    I don't want to use the port option cause my VPN uses same port as i set in qBitTorrent, i want to use the <services> option.
    Code:
    sudo ufw allow <service name>
    When i run
    Code:
    less /etc/services
    , i don't see qBitTorrent anywhere as a service.
    In a previous distro i had UFW as a GUI and there i could just type in qBitTorrent under rules,but now in xUbuntu 20.04 i cant find a GUI for firewall.

    Any idea how i could set this up?

    Thanks.

    Xubuntu doesn't have a firewall GUI installed by default.
    Most people probably use gufw.
    It's in the standard repos and called Firewall Configuration in the software center and menu.
    I don't use qBitTorrent but I just checked and it appears to be one of the predefined gufw rules.
