Firewall checkbox in QuickSetup

April 24, 2016 — BarryK
QuickSetup is a GUI that pops up at first bootup, with a collection of things that you might want to configure.

There is a checkbox for the firewall. Tick it if you want a firewall.

I had pre-ticked it, even though there is no firewall running. My reasoning was that is what a user would want. However, gcmartin (Puppy forum) saw it differently -- that the ticked box meant the firewall is running.

Hmm, I see the potential misunderstanding. Well, I have changed it to not-ticked.
