Hello, I am new to linux and I have a few ports that I need to forward to allow me to play my game TCP Ports 1119 and 3724 are forwarded. TCP ports 6881-6999 TCP port 1120 So I used ufw and used the default settings to block everything. Then I allowed the aforementioned ports. Code (Text): ~$ sudo ufw allow 3724/tcp Rule updated Rule updated (v6) And this is my status Code (Text): sudo ufw status Status: active To Action From -- ------ ---- 22 ALLOW Anywhere 443 ALLOW Anywhere 1119/tcp ALLOW Anywhere 3724/tcp ALLOW Anywhere 6881:6999/tcp ALLOW Anywhere 1120/tcp ALLOW Anywhere 22 (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6) 443 (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6) 1119/tcp (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6) 3724/tcp (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6) 6881:6999/tcp (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6) 1120/tcp (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6) My question is, I don't know if this is the same as port forwarding. I denied access to two of the ports which are needed to play the game and I was still able to, which prompts me to believe that this isn't correct. I used ufw instead of iptables because I don't feel comfortable using iptables since it looks more complicated. If these aren't forwarded, then what did I do with these commands? Just allow those ports to go through my firewall? Thanks!
