There are red and grey text in GUFW firewall report.

I can't figure out what do they mean. Tried googling it up but best I could find was mention that there are "color codes" in report.

Originally I thought it's blocked applications, but nope, applications in both colors are added to the rules list.

    Which report are you referring to? Could you possible include an screenshot? – vidarlo Jun 18 '19 at 17:12
  • Ah yes, added screenshot to original post. I see only one report so that's how I called it. I think it's list of running accessing network (well some of them) – Ashton Jun 18 '19 at 17:24
  • @Rinzwind Would work if there was a gray one among the listed.. Rather it's not about rules, but the way report section is displayed which is why I'm confused. – Ashton Jun 18 '19 at 18:42

In the GUFW Report tab...

Which ports are active...

RED indicates rule exists... probably accepts.

BLACK indicates no rule exists... probably blocked.
