Post Can I use old rules in rc.firewall for ufw or gfw?
I've looked a bit at the firewall wiki and IP tables stuff. After that experience I'm hoping there is a simpler solution to my problem. I set up a firewall using guarddog. From a previous thread in the fourms here someone suggested when I changed MEPIS versions I could just copy the rc.firewall file to the new version and my firewall would be set up. That worked for previous versions of MEPIS with guarddog.

So, if I want to not use guarddog in the current version of MEPIS, can I import the script (rc.firewall) from a previous set up using the GUI for ufw which I believe is gfw? If so how, if not what are my alternatives. I had a somewhat complicated firewall set up that will take me a long, long, time to duplicate and get working right with ufw.

Thanks.

The answer appears to be no. I'm tryng to figure out how to add kcm-ufw which I think can import rules.
