14.04 firewall

Firestarter, which worked fine for me under 12.04, seems to have been
dropped from 14.04 for some reason.

I'm not committed to Firestarter, but the problem is that putting the same
rules into gufw as I put into firestarter doesn't allow me to do what I
used to do, namely run a dlna server.  The only way I can play the music I
have on HD (all my music) is to disable gufw altogether.

Is there a good alternative to gufw? Or, given the limited firewall options
on Ubuntu, does that imply that I do not need one at all?
