Internet not working with "Home" profile in Firewall

Post by amogh123789 » Tue Feb 12, 2019 6:01 am

Hi Guys,

Recently my Internet is not working after selecting the "Home" profile in Firewall configuration. If I select "Office" Profile, then Internet works.Is there any issue if I select Office profile on my Home wifi? If not, then I can continue to use this profile.
But still it is very strange because it used to work earlier without any issues. Any advice is helpful.

works the way it's supposed to here with Home profile. you should see
Profile: Home
Incoming: Deny
Outgoing: Allow

do you have any Rules you've added? turn the firewall OFF and ON

No, I haven't added any rules. When I select home profile, internet stops working in all apps. When selected office or public profile then internet works.
Is there any difference between these 3 profiles? All have incoming deny and outgoing allow configured by default

the only thing i do with firewall is turn it on, it's the same in arch as mint, then add some rules for file transfer to android. what do you have for incoming/outgoing ?

Rules are pre-configured as
Incoming deny,
Outgoing allow.

But there are 3 profiles as home, office and public. All 3 have same rules as above

there should be no difference in what profile you use. sudo ufw status do you get an active when running sudo ufw status in Terminal?
