Search around on these forums -- this topic gets brought up a lot. Basically, Linux does not get infected by Windows viruses, and there are very few native Linux viruses, so you really don't need to worry about virus control unless you're running a mail server for Windows clients. Same for spyware -- Windows spyware doesn't tend to work on Linux. For firewalling, look at iptables -- there are a lot of good iptables guides on the Internet, and there are some GUI front ends for it too, if you don't want to muck around with command line firewall scripts.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

You got many replies in http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=199642 so I'm closing this one.
