Best Firewall Package [Solved].

Post by albfneto » Wed Aug 07, 2019 23:01

In the more recent or upgraded Sabayon installations, is it better to use UFW or firewalld as default firewall?

Either can be used.

Here is a comparison of UFW annd Firewalld that you might find helpful: Comparing and contrasting Uncomplicated Firewall and FirewallD.

And here is an article on switching from Firewalld to UFW that also comments on the differences between the two: How to switch firewalls from FirewallD to UFW.

If I understood, both working, but not together.

UFW is good for general and easier use, in desktops.

but in servers firewalld is racommended.
Thanks, I will mark the topic as solved.
