How do I install a firewall for Debian 3.0 woody r2???

I would like to install a firewall for Debian 3.0 woody r2. Is this necessary? I checked my sytem with the website Shields up and it founds some open ports on my debian system. Is there a firewall in the distribution or do I have to download it from the web and install it.
For this case are there any favourite firewalls for Debian?

greetings kryptotronic

I use Guarddog for KDE, which is a frontend for iptables ( Which is part of the kernel ). Their are others as well, including shorewall ( shoreline firewall ) which is quite popular.

Look at the Debian package searcher for others as well.

STOP INETD, PORTMAP, SSHD, etc... if you don't need it
/etc/init.d/inetd stop
update-rc.d -f inetd remove

install one of them
apt-get install shorewall(console) | firestarter(graphical) | guarddog(graphical,needs kde)| or something else
configure the firewall after.
