Yes, its called SuSEfirewall2

To configure via yast

Yast -> Security and Users -> Firewall

The settings are in /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2

SuSE 9.3 has firewall built-in (actually it has scripts that work with iptables etc... and a front-end via YaST).

You will find Firewall in YaST under "Security and Users" tab.

In typical YaST fashion however, going to the firewall icon won't enable it. Installing SuSE only enables what they call "stage one", which blocks absolutely nothing. To complete the "phase two" firewall setup you have to go to a completely different place, the System - System Services icon.

Go to System menu - System Services (runlevel) icon in YaST instead. Putting all the firewall stuff in one place wouldn't be confusing enough.
