Bug Description

on this page https://help.ubuntu.com/stable/ubuntu-help/net-firewall-on-off.html the displayed usage is off.

Somebody on askUbuntu was troubled by these docs. At least block should read as deny, not sure what else needs updated

Thanks for the report, Jeroen. However, the problem needs to be clarified. Do you have a link to the related Ask Ubuntu question?

Thanks, it helps. I'm going to make that minimum (s/block/deny/) change for yakkety.
