Why no firewall ?

Post by danielson on Tue Aug 16, 2016 12:18 pm

Just curious, but, why does ChaletOS not have a firewall app like LinuxMint does?
Not necessary on Linux?
Or, part of those programs to download separately?

Firewall comes with Chalet OS. Make sure it is enabled by running:

Code:
sudo ufw enable

Was just wondering.
Super key search doesn't come up with it like LinuxMint does.
Maybe i wasn't searching with right term?
Could not find it in settings.

So, it should be on by default?
It's not with LinuxMint.

Sad day today... sniff. Crying or Very sad
A desktop with ChaletOS is on its way to "eternal rest".
For some reason the latest upgrade made it go bananas.
It was the last straw 'cause i tried a few Linux distros and none faired as well as ChaletOS (Windows Vista was on it before).

Good question! Money is tight, so we'll have to play it by ear.
At least now i know ChaletOS has an integrated firewall and how to make sure it works! Smile

I seem to doubt that an update did it.. but my idea is to do some diagnostics. Maybe elaborate on what exactly the problem is and when it occures.

Or you could even click on the facebook or skype button (below my avatar image) and I will go over advanced diagnostics.

I guess so Sad

I would advise you to look at some cheap models on ebay. If you are looking for a basic computer you can easily get a computer with 4 gb of ram and a pentium processor very well capable of running Chalet OS for $50.
