Firewall Help Please

Postby retriever » Tue May 28, 2013 7:40 am

I have not configured my firewall in LMDE because I do not know what to "allow", and what to "deny". Could someone give me some recommendations?

Deny incoming is a sane default. That would block all traffic to your computer that you didn't first request. If you are running any services on your computer that should be reachable by other computers, you can specifically allow those as an exception to the "default deny incoming" rule.
