|0003949||Kali Linux||[All Projects] General Bug||public||2017-04-04 23:43||2017-04-05 07:57|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||2017.1|
|Summary||0003949: UFW not enabled on boot, has to be started manually|
|Description||On recent Kali installs, UFW has been consistently broken. This goes back to the 2016.1 release if I recall.|
I have reinstalled multiple times, and the issue has not gone away. I am running the latest weekly release on a Lenovo L512 laptop.
All packages have been updated.
Once installed, I run `ufw enable`. It says "Firewall active and enabled on system startup". Upon reboot, it is not automatically enabled.
|Steps To Reproduce||Terminal:|
apt-get install ufw
|Additional Information||I have been working around this by adding the start command to rc.local. This is also broken with the latest version (separate bug report).|
I have also tested this on a VM, with the same results. The VM was 2016.2, the 64 bit version. It is the official virtualbox version from kali.org
I guess that "systemctl status ufw.service" says that the service is disabled. I have modified our default policy so that it gets enabled by default on a new installation.
You can fix it with "systemctl enable ufw.service".
|Should be fixed with base-files 2017.1.0. If you install ufw while you have the new base-files, then it should be enabled by default.|
