I was experimenting with firewall configuration. As I understand there are iptables - there is saved configuration. But as additional tool - ufw can be installed for simpler configuration. I installed it and experimented. Btw I checked

sudo iptables --list

and there was some lines like

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination
ufw-before-logging-output  all  --  anywhere             anywhere

but I did not touch them. Maybe ufw changes them. Not sure.

I played around with uwf - adding some rules, removing them. ANd then I disabled uwf. WHen I done this - the old configuration is still filtering which was in iptables, right?

I don't want to leave without firewall :D

is this the only output you get with "iptables --list"?

I have not played arround with ufw but, this seems that there are some leftover from it, even after disabling it.

which distro are you using?

As I remember there were more lines, I just did not want to copy all of them in the forum. These were as example.
