That's what Leon said, shorewall is an iptables abstraction, and 
iptables is a command that manipulates netfilter.

FirewallD is similar in that it abstracts and simplifies using netfilter 
without using the iptables command.  Which has a GUI that can be used 
remotely but it is not web based as requested.  Fedora's CoPilot 
probably has a module for it, but I don't know that it can be used with 
a CentOS based server.  Webmin likely has a module for it by now.
