Enabling firewall without locking ourselves out
I am a new user of digital ocean. I have a droplet that is up but I have not turned on the firewall yet. I would like some advice on the correct process to turn on the firewall without closing access to ssh (which I only presume could happen).
1) Does console access work regarless of firewall settings?
2) On Ubuntu 12.04, by default, will “ufw enable” close access to ssh (port 22)?
3) If so, will console still work for us to configure ufw properly?
Thanks in advance,
