Linux firewall

You couid edit it through webmin (http://127.0.0.1:10000) which is usually very helpfull.

There you could insted choose to use 'Linux firewall' which is as simple as activating it and it use default values.

After that go check your protection at http://www.grc.com I think (or search Shields up, ports)
