If you installed only the services you need, there is no need for a
firewall for a PC, you only need some iptables set-up if you use your
computer as a firewall for some LAN. 

In my opinion the Debian position: no personal firewall is the correct
one. It avoids a LOT of problems when you install a new service which
does not seem to bea ccesible, just because of a stupid automatic
iptables configuration.
