UFW Firewall

  • Posted July 3, 2013

Hey!

I found a link here on the site : https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-setup-a-firewall-with-ufw-on-an-ubuntu-cloud-server

Does the ruleset i make, will it still be there when i reboot the server? have a little trouble finding out that piece of info ?

To protect against DDoS and other malicious attacks you’ll want something like fail2ban: <br>https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-protect-ssh-with-fail2ban-on-ubuntu-12-04 <br>https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fail2ban

Okay thanks again :)

As far as I know, UFW isn’t flexible enough to set up complicated anti-DDoS rules - you’ll have better luck finding resources for iptables.

How can i block DOS and such things is there any guides to read about it ?

Great thanks :)

UFW will save the rules so that they’re still set after rebooting.
