If you have a proper iptables configuration file you could try 'sudo iptables-restore < /path/to/iptables_configuration_file' from the command line?

If you're using gufw, it takes a bit of time to respond. First you need to click on "unlock" and give your password. Then you click (not pull) on the ON/OFF button and wait about 10 seconds.
