Template:Firewall Settings

Modify Whonix User Firewall Settings.

Note: Initially, if you have not made any changes to Whonix Firewall Settings, then Whonix User Firewall Settings File /etc/whonix_firewall.d/50_user.conf appears empty, because it does not exist. This is expected.

If you are using Qubes-Whonix, complete the following steps:

Qubes App Launcher (blue/grey "Q") -> Template: whonix-gw -> Whonix User Firewall Settings

If you are using a graphical Whonix-Gateway, complete the following steps:

Start Menu -> Applications -> Settings -> User Firewall Settings

If you are using a terminal-only Whonix-Gateway, complete the following steps:

sudo nano /etc/whonix_firewall.d/50_user.conf

For more help, press on expand on the right.

Note: Whonix Global Firewall Settings File /etc/whonix_firewall.d/30_default.conf contains default settings and explanatory comments what these settings purpose. It gets opened read-only by default. By default you are not supposed to directly edit the file. Below, we recommend to open the file without root rights. The file contains an explanatory comment on how to change firewall settings.

## Please use "/etc/whonix_firewall.d/50_user.conf" for your custom configuration,
## which will override the defaults found here. When Whonix is updated, this
## file may be overwritten.
