"And that is because on a new installation of Comice OS 4, which
was recently reviewed here (see Pear Linux Comice OS 4 review), the
firewall is enabled out of the box. Because of the default firewall
rules, your computer is protected, even if you do not do anything
else. Though your computer might be sitting behind a cable modem,
fiber optic or DSL router with a firewall enabled, that does not
negate the need for running a firewall on your computer. A good
case for why this is highly recommended has been made in a previous
article. See Why your computer needs a firewall enabled.
"By the way, the firewall application is called ufw, the
Uncomplicated FireWall. It is a command line frontend to IPTables,
the original script for managing the Linux firewall. ufw was borne
out of a need for a simple, easy-to-use alternative to IPTables.
That is a very short history of ufw."
