Have you looked at "man ufw" as it looks pretty simple to
do what you are asking about; or, maybe you are like me
and don't understand about FW rules. Also, there is gui
tool, gufw, that may be easier for you to use. I don't
understand all this, but I think I could do what you 
want by using the man and the "dry run" option which
would probably tell you if the syntax your usisg is
OK or not.  HTH
