Firewall[solved]

Post by duder1982 »

Hi I am running Linxu mint 17 mate, I currently have a firewall installed. But if wont let me connect my phone so I can use it as a remote for VLC. Is there a recommended Firewall that I can set up that will allow me to leave it on but allow my phone to access VLC.

I am currently using Uncomplicated Firewall (ufw).

Thanks.

Hi duder,

You could install GUFW (graphical configuration tool for UFW) and then adjust the rules to allow inbound connections to VLC from your local LAN.

Cool, looks simple enough. So I would create a rule to allow incoming for port and it should allow my phone to see VLC. I will give it a try later this evening.
