UFW configuration

If you want to use ufw (uncomplicated firewall) on a server connected to Wodby, you’ll need to do additional configuration. Docker uses a bridge to manage container networking. By default, UFW drops all forwarding traffic. You must set UFW’s forwarding policy appropriately.


  1. Edit the UFW configuration file, which is usually /etc/default/ufw or /etc/sysconfig/ufw. Set the DEFAULT_FORWARD_POLICY policy to ACCEPT.


  2. Add the following rules:

    ufw allow ssh
    ufw allow http
    ufw allow https

    ufw allow 4001/tcp
    ufw allow 6443/tcp

    ufw enable
