The system defaults are to have no firewall of any kind.  A new install
by default does not have any ports blocked at all.  If something is
installed that listens on a port, then that port should be open, and
otherwise it should have no response.

Installing something means now you have one.  Help with a given firewall
is certainly not architecture specific, and would get way more answers
from a list dedicated to that particular firewall managing tool,
or debian-user.

Installing and fixing issues compiling code on arm is very much what
this list is for.

How to use linux in general, is not, no matter what kind of device it is.
