Next, choose the firewall rules. Please
note that these rules are very basic. You are strongly encouraged
to use a more sophisticated firewall setup; however, these will provide
basic security. If any servers are running on the machine, you must
choose 'NONE' and set up a firewall by other means. Otherwise, the
firewall rules will deny access to all standard servers like Web,
e-mail, ftp, etc.
The firewall choices are:
0 - NONE: This script will not set any
firewall rules. You are responsible for ensuring the security of your
machine. You are STRONGLY recommended to use some kind of firewall
