Re: How can I enable ufw firewall tool with an existing set of iptables rules?




Smart way to do it is to setup a cron job to run shell script that will
flush (or restore to default working ruleset) iptables rules every 10
minutes.
With this approach, even if you mess up your iptables rules and loose
ssh, you can simply wait for 10 minutes and reconnect to ssh.
Take your time and check that cron job is working correctly and if it
is, continue with ufw\iptables setup or correct mistakes.
