Totally not self-promotion or anything - ;) - but to achieve what you
need I have a firewall script and some explanation on my site
(drw.ninth.su/gnu.html). It is based on what you'll find in the Securing
Debian Manual (which is well worth a read if you feel up to it).

Let me know if you have any questions.
