iptables is the firewall program type
iptables -L

that means you accept all packets coming to your machine and going from your machine in other words you do not have firewall other option is if you have dsl or cable my dsl modem has a internal firewall

they do the same job but they use different libs. to work one uses qt and other uses kde i use fluxbox but installed gnome in order to run gnome app but you can run them in any window manager gnome and kde they both use to much resource so switching another window manager is better
