what are first steps after installing ubuntu?

why ubuntu dont have firewall on out of box?

>> No.27573424

because linux don't have virus dipshit

>> No.27573430

Why OP does have english on out of preschool?

>> No.27573432

Linux operating systems do not get viruses. Actually, due to the nature of Linux, it is impossible for them to get viruses.

>> No.27573461

not true, they are more secure yes, but not everyone effectively uses the way permissions work, not all the applications you will install come from user repos and ultimately what it comes down to is its popularity or lack thereof. but no one will argue that it isnt the most secure.

and OP if you want your ubuntu to come with iptables, make your own image of it and include the package. assuming that it doesnt, i dont actually know because i dont use ubuntu personally

>> No.27573488


I completely forgot to answer the other question, you wanna check out alternate desktop environments and window managers to see if you like any better, and customize your bashrc look up some info on that. also customize what starts up when you boot, if it starts from commandline or into Xorg

I dont know what you do so i wont recommend many applications, but you should get screen and ssh i think its a must have for everyone

>> No.27573501

and startup scripts, works similar to windows but its a lot easier to edit, you can select programs or even bash commands that will start up, either via Xorg or from the linux system itself

second step would be to learn about usergroups
and symbolic linking for drivers

Dude, it does have a firewall out of the box,
You just never see it.

>> No.27573601


> why ubuntu dont have firewall on out of box?
because personal firewalls are only used by fucking software pirates to keep the pirated software from calling their home servers

so there's no need for one

>> No.27573621

Yeah, and most pirates actually use windows.

>> No.27573631

> 2012
> using GNU screen

get tmux instead

>> No.27573660


On linux there is nearly no need, instead of pirating software only available for windows, use the free available cross-platform alternatives.

If the high-end software is needed for the professionality, why the fuck is it pirated in the first place?


>> No.27573682


you dont know how firewall work

>> No.27573689

Yeah, if someone is a professional then they can afford to ACTUALLY buy their professional software like any decent human being, or least find an open source/GNU alternative.

>> No.27573698

We didn't mention anything about firewalls, you dummy.

>> No.27573749

Can your tmux be used as a serial port interface?

I don't think so.

>> No.27573780


Personal firewalls are used like that most of the time.
I don't think you connect directly to THE INTERNETZ, but live behind some router of some kind, so there's not that essential need for a firewall.
And I don't think a personal firewall can compete to an actual firewall to protect subnets from THE INTERNETZ

>> No.27573796


>> No.27573808


tmux+picocom can

actually, tail -f /dev/ttyX can.

>> No.27573814

They don't achieve the same results.

>> No.27573827

first steps are :
1 format c:\
2 install windows 7

>> No.27573869


How do tmux + picocom/minicom not achieve the same results?

Anyway, a serial port interface is no way a common need.

>> No.27573890

Because it's builtin, you can also use it for telnet!

>> No.27573907


I use telnet for telnet

and telnet is also no common need
hence ssh in the original post

I seriously hope you didn't install 12.04.

>> No.27574167

This. I don't know why there isn't a script that does this for you though.

>> No.27574184

Trolls everywhere

>> No.27574186

OP type this in terminal:

sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=1M

It displays Ubuntu's default firewall rules in hex.

>> No.27574209

>format c:\
>on linux
I'm mad.

>> No.27574228

Contrary to popular belief, this should be done AFTER one is completely done setting up their machine and doing their configs. This way the command effects even the new changes you made, so you don't have to worry about updating things later.

>> No.27574248


first real funny post in this thread

>> No.27574258

>why ubuntu dont have firewall on out of box?

Because most users do not need it enabled out-of-the-box? Ubuntu's target audience is the normal desktop user that probably has a firewall on their router, or wouldn't know how to use a firewall properly in the first place.

Anyone who understands firewalls, and would have a need for one on their machine, would know how to read a man page and enable it themselves. (man iptables, for example.)

>> No.27574284

OP didn't ask why ubuntu doesn't come with a firewall (it does), he asked why it doesn't come with it enabled by default. I totally understand the confusion considering the way he worded it though.

>> No.27574295

He didn't ask why it didn't come with one, he said why isn't it ON by default.
