Here's a good port scanner...

As for the firewall Linux uses iptables. The GUI that RH provides should be ok, but if you want to go into more detail with your firwall rules you can make a script.

One option is to download nmap and port scan yourself.

[edit] Crap! Beaten to it. At least it was by another Slacker!
