ESET NOD32 and UFW rules on Linux Mint 19.3

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Before buying a licence for our four computers I would like to be sure not to have problem due to the configuration of my firewall :

On the firewall (UFW on Linux Mit 19.3) I put this kind of rules for Samba.

ufw allow proto udp to any port 137 from 192.168.1.17
ufw allow proto udp to any port 138 from 192.168.1.17
ufw allow proto tcp to any port 139 from 192.168.1.17
ufw allow proto tcp to any port 445 from 192.168.1.17

Somebody wrote it was possible to do so : sudo ufw allow Samba but it does not look secure to me (I am far to be an expert).

It was so difficult to install our home network I am afraid to change.

How it will works with Eset Nod32 for Linux...(1) if I keep UFW...(2) if choose the Eset firewall  ?

Thank you.

Jacques

ESET Nod32 V4 doesn't include a firewall , you can use it as a scanner and then use ufw along with it

But V4 is a legacy product and have some troubles with AppArmor but it should work fine , but it cannot access some areas because AppArmor denies access.

There should be a v7 coming to consumer products , but I don't know how much time that will take , v7 is already available for endpoint , but sadly for me it failed to run

I'm still with v4 , same as you described with ufw.

Thank you Nightowl,

Another question please : will I need to add some rules to the firewall?

 

Nope I have added nothing to my firewall for ESET

You are welcome :)
