I have just installed Firestarter on my Debian server, because I want an easy-to-use tool to administer the firewall on this server. The plan is to restrict access to some ports (e.g. 8080) and I've thought that an inbound rule is the right choice.
Am I on the right way?
I've added an example rule, which restricts access to port 8080 to IP adress 127.0.0.1. (will change 127.0.0.1 later to the right one).
Another problem is, that I don't know if I should also activate SSH access or if this is activated by default. I am a little bit scared, that if I don't allow access to it in Firestarter, that I will take access from myself. :)
