I'm using pulseaudio-dlna+pavucontrol to direct sound output from my laptop ( to my yamaha stereo ( This only works when I disable ufw with sudo ufw disable

I struggle to find the right rule to allow that specific traffic.

sudo tail -f /var/log/ufw.log

shows block messages like:

Apr 21 20:40:50 foo kernel: [ 5349.911161] [UFW BLOCK] IN=wlo1 OUT= MAC=01:00:5e:7f:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:65:c3:04:08:00 SRC= DST= LEN=204 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=1 ID=0 DF PROTO=UDP SPT=40760 DPT=51200 LEN=184

As you can see I already added various rules without the desired effect, which I want to remove again when I found the right config:

sudo ufw status verbose

Status: active
Logging: on (low)
Default: deny (incoming), allow (outgoing), disabled (routed)
New profiles: skip

51200/udp                  ALLOW OUT 40760/udp

I was able to find the right rules. The application iftop is handy to see which ports and addresses see traffic.

ufw disable
# Now start playback and watch the traffic with:
iftop -i wlo1 -N -n -P

These rules allowed me to have ufw active and stereo playing:

ufw allow proto udp from to any port 8080   
ufw allow proto udp from port 1900 to any port 1901
ufw enable
