You can give this a try:

However, I highly suggest you spend some time reading up on how to 
control iptables yourself.  There are some decent scripts out there such 
as monmotha's firewall, or fwbuilder, and another one that was curses 
based that I had run across not too long ago.

Also, Webmin has an OK interface to iptables, however, you need somewhat 
of an understanding to create a decent firewall.  There is also 
shorwall, but that would probably be overkill for what you need.
