(g)ufw and default 4.9 kernel – fix

Running with default antiX-19 series, running sudo ufw enable gives an error.
Previously, we suggested upgrading to a 4.19 or later kernel.

However, it may not be necessary. Instead just switch to using legacy iptables.

# update-alternatives --set iptables /usr/sbin/iptables-legacy
# update-alternatives --set ip6tables /usr/sbin/ip6tables-legacy

  1. Hi mikey,
    commands, you will need them to be prefixed with sudo.

    files set for use are /usr/sbin/iptables-legacy
    /usr/sbin/ip6tables-legacy
