Ubuntu Firewall

UFW (Uncomplicated Firewall) comes with Ubuntu preinstalled, but it is disabled by default:
sudo ufw enable

Then you'll have to allow specific ports for some applications.
For example, to allow the default port of Transmission Bittorrent Client:
sudo ufw allow 51413

Another way to allow ports for an application is to create an application profile and allow that profile.
For example to allow Plex Media Server:
  1. Edit (create) the app profile:
    sudo gedit /etc/ufw/applications.d/PlexMediaServer
  2. Paste the following in it:
    title=Plex Media Server
    description=This opens up PlexMediaServer for http (32400), upnp, and autodiscovery.
  3. Allow the profile:
    ufw allow PlexMediaServer
Refer to Ubuntu Wiki and Ubuntu Help for more information about UFW.
The solution for Plex Media Server profile was originally posted on Plex Forum.

Some other useful commands:
List all rules (with reference number):
sudo ufw status numbered
Then the reference numbers can be used to delete a rule:
sudo ufw delete 1
The other way to delete a rule would be like this (for an allow rule):
sudo ufw delete allow 51413
