when I enable my ufw it completely shuts me out and I have no internet connection.
when i do:

sudo ufw status numbered
I get:

Status: active

To Action From
-- ------ ----
[ 1] 80 ALLOW IN Anywhere
[ 2] 80 ALLOW OUT Anywhere (out)

but i need to disable my ufw in order to reconnect back to the internet.
Why is that? Doesn't the above rules indicate that I should have inbound and outbound traffic even if my firewall is up?

Even if you're using a firewall front-end troubleshooting rules is more efficient and easier if you list those rules. As root user run: (sudo) 'sort -r /proc/net/ip_tables_names | xargs -iN iptables -t 'N' --line-numbers -nvxL > /tmp/iptables_rules.tmp;'. If you understand iptables you can read them ('less /tmp/iptables_rules.tmp') else you could *attach* the file to this thread. Elif you're cool with troubleshooting rules yourself then precede all "-j DROP" rules with "-j LOG --prefix='dropped_reason '" rules (or watch 'iptables -t 'N' -nvxL' counters) to see what gets dropped where.

when i do:

$ sudo sort -r /proc/net/ip_tables_names | xargs -iN iptables -t 'N' --line-numbers -nvxL > /tmp/iptables_rules.tmp;
i get:

iptables v1.4.4: can't initialize iptables table `filter': Permission denied (you must be root)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

'sudo (sudo sort -r /proc/net/ip_tables_names | xargs -iN iptables -t 'N' --line-numbers -nvxL > /tmp/iptables_rules.tmp)'?

I stopped using ufw, and set up my firewall with firewall builder; however, wasn't able to install it using the fwbuilder built-in installer. I found this link and installed it manually
I still would appreciate someone helping me out with how to install the policy that I created with fwbuilder with its built-in installer. I spent a lot of time reading the docs but couldn't find it there. The error I get is

scp: /etc/fw/tmp/: Is a directory

SSH session terminated, exit status: 1
this error is presented on the installation stage after the compile went fine, so if anyone has any idea how to go about fixing this leave me a message.
