The GUI for gufw does not provide the options I need to setup iptables the way I want. What is the preferred way to run iptables without having any “easy configuration tool”?
One of the things I notice is that iptables is installed (by default), but I can’t find any iptables service. However, when I insert rules using the iptables command, the system responds well to the command.
When running iptables -L it lists a huge number of chains and rules jumping between them. I’d like to start empty, having my own rules and chains only.
Whats the preferred way there?
