Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

Currently I use ufw and Firestarter, and I'm just learning how to use a firewall.

When I used windows there were a couple of firewalls that could block a process which tried to establish connection and show a dialog with the process name and buttons with preferred actions.

Is there deb package which can block connection and show which process tries to establish it, giving the user a choice what to do with the connection?

I really need it because I cannot figure out which process was blocked by Firestarter given that log entry:

Time            Port  Source        Destination    Protocol Service
