should I disable ufw if running the Digital Ocean firewall?

Hello,

Having a Cloud Firewall would essentially mean that the traffic would be filtered before it even reaches your server. This could be very beneficial in case of a big DDoS attack, that way the malicious traffic would not even reach your droplet.

I would still recommend having a software firewall like UFW enabled even if you have a separate Cloud Firewall.

Hope that this helps!

Bobby
