"Step 1: Preparing Your Raspberry Pi 5 for Firewall Installation"

Before diving into the firewall installation, it's crucial to prepare your Raspberry Pi 5. This initial step ensures that your device is ready and equipped to handle the GUFW firewall setup efficiently. Follow these sub-steps to get started:

Assemble and Connect Your Raspberry Pi 5: If you haven't already, assemble your Raspberry Pi 5. Connect it to your monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Ensure it is powered on and connected to a stable internet connection.

Update the Raspberry Pi System: Keeping your system up-to-date is vital for security and compatibility.

Check Network Connectivity: Ensure your Raspberry Pi is connected to your network.

Optional - Configure Static IP: For a more stable network setup, especially if you plan to use the Raspberry Pi as a consistent firewall, consider setting a static IP address. You can do this through the Raspberry Pi's network settings.

Prepare for GUFW Installation: Make sure that your Raspberry Pi’s operating system supports GUFW. Most modern Raspberry Pi OS versions do, but it’s good to double-check compatibility.
