Ubuntu – Gufw – rules listed in red and green. What do these colors mean


In the gufw rules table listing, some rules are printed in red and some in green. What is the meaning of these two colors?

Best Answer

GUFW uses colors to quickly identify what type of rule you are looking at.

  • Green = Deny
  • Red = Allow
  • Blue = Reject
  • Yellow = Limit
  • Black = No rule set

Note: These rules are just some default ones I stuck in here for the purpose of the screenshot, and are not meant to be seen as recommendations.
