I don't have time to go looking, but ISTM that many of today's crop of 
questions was related to this poster's issue. They are probably not 
really wanting to learn firewalling, they simply want to have a rule 
set that works and is easy to manage.

Yes, I know there are things like firestarter which can generate 
rulesets. But is there something non-GUI, and simple?

Am I going to have to write one myself? :) There are 37 hits for 
http://freshmeat.net/search/?q=iptables+script . Most of them look 
unmaintained.
