This sounds like a good idea. I can tell you it took me a while to figure
out what ports Samba needed. I had googled for it, and apparently found
innaccurate or old information (this was before I knew about netstat).
Anyway, this should make it much simpler.
I do have one suggestion though. I am the type of sysadmin who likes to
know exactly what is going on with his system (which is probably why I
generally like text editing config files over gui interfaces), so it would
be nice if a short message after running the command would tell you what
ports were being opened (I know I could just look over the config file, but
to make things easier...). Such as:
$ sudo ufw allow Apache-Full
This would give me some peace of mind to know it is opening the ports I
want, and also be convenient for services with unkown ports in case I would
need to open those ports on an external firewall appliance.
