You can use suse firewall2 to achive this. It's silly to say that you
don't need a firewall. Although it is not (yet) so bad with linux, an
unprotected windows machine is infected with blaster within 5 minutes on
the internet. NEVER say that you don't need a firewall (except if you have
NO port open, not even ssh)
