I have UFW enabled on my server. However, I find that it is disabled at times, showing a status of "firewall not loaded". I enable it, verify that it is running (shows loaded and gives me a list of my active rules when asking for status verbose), and if I check it a few minutes later, it shows not loaded again.
I thought there might be a flag in the config to unload itself as a safety feature while it is being configured, but couldn't find anything. It seems to disable itself about every 5 minutes.
It is driving me crazy, any ideas? Could another firewall be loaded and cause the conflict? How would I know?
