I hope these questions are not to easy.  

What is a good and simple tool in SuSe 
to turn off active ports?  Or setup a firewall?

I'd like to suggest a program to a kid in California.
He is very new to Linux but is being bomb barded by
attacks.(Snort) Real telnet and x11 attacks.  Instead 
of me manually setting a firewall for him.   I'd like 
to suggest an app for him.  

While he is setting up his firewall what is the 
simplest way to shut off ports in SuSe for only one 
nic?"eth0" but leave localhost and eth1 to be able 
to connect using the ports?
