Thank you for responding so quickly! I actually read that tutorial and it led me here.
So iptables is the built in firewall. Is it installed by default? and just difficult to manage from the command line.
The main reason I was thinking of not installing SSH was because all of my other machines are Windows <ducks> and I'd like to be able to just use their CMD prompt to get into this box (and not have to install an SSH client on them).
