I haven't seen it recently, but I know that older versions of Fedora
(and Red Hat) default firewalls are utterly useless. If you want to
learn iptables yourself, fine; if not, look on freshmeat for something
better. Just about anything you might find is probably better.
At this time I don't have something specific I can recommend. Before I
learned iptables I used MonMotha's, but that's too complicated for my

Wrong question. Use stateful inspection as described in the Packet
Filtering HOWTO. The ipchains-style approach of opening high ports is a
terrible idea, completely unnecessary with iptables.
I could answer your question, but I won't. It is documented in the
manual, of course.
