Ufw Ftw!!!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I just got my Ubuntu Server 8.04(i likes the printed cd's), started using and looking up how to use Uncomplicated FireWall and quite frankly I love it lol. I was putting off learning netfilter/iptables as I always thought it was to complicated.

Anyone else have an opinion of ufw? Ive only been using it for a day, but its one of the best things on Ubuntu IMO(before you make the comment, yes I know ufw is more or less a front end to iptables, durr).

Whats that supposed to mean? Yes you can install Gnome if you wanted I guess. Tho I don't see the need on a server.

Ubuntu Desktop does, Ubuntu Server doesn't.

When you install the server, it asks you what services you would like to install, and X11 server is one of the options.

Why would this be useful, if as a Server Admin you never start it? I'll let you guys discuss, and I'll post the answer tomorrow.

X11 is usefull only for remote graphic administration (vnc for example), or for remote login (but that's another story). I think webmin is much more usefull and it doesn't need X11.
