Introducing GUFW the Uncomplicated Firewall GUI for Ubuntu Linux Hardy Heron!!

I just woke up this morning and found a great comment on my blog introducing me to a promising new project by marcoscostales called gufw and he has taken his time to create a .deb package for us all. This application looks promising and can only get better with our suggestions.

So far 1200 people on Ubuntu Brainstorm voted for an application like this, see here

Deny all inbound/outbound connections with 1 click

Allow all inbound/outbound connections with 1 click
