It is currently mainly used for host-based firewalls.• Administrators can customize before.rules and after.rules as desired using the standard iptables-restore syntax. Rules are evaluated as follows: before.rules first, user.rules next, and after.rules last.• Please note that ufw status only shows rules added with ufw and not the rules found in the /etc/ufw rules files.
  19. 19. UFW• ufw is a front-end for iptables-restore, with its rules saved in /etc/ufw/before.rules, /etc/ufw/ after.rules and /var/lib/ufw/user.rules.• ufw will read in /etc/ufw/sysctl.conf on boot when enabled. To change this behavior, modify /etc/default/ufw.
