is there some kind of hot key or app that allows me to set firewall on/off without using the setting centre?

not exactly, but you can make your own hotkey in cinnamon via System Settings>Hardware/Keyboard/Shortcuts/Add a custom shortcut
using you preffered keybinds with a command something like(to start it):

Code: Select all

psu sh /etc/rc.d/rc.FireWall start
this will prompt for a password
and another for stopping

Code: Select all

psu sh /etc/rc.d/rc.FireWall stop
a better solution might be to invoke the gui (outside of psc) instead:

Code: Select all

psu /opt/porteus-scripts/gtk-firewall
which would make it easier to keep track of on/off status..

It sounds like a desktop file, or two, which put those options in the Porteus Menu, or on a user's desktop, might be a convenient approach.
