It's possible that Ubuntu has an easy-to-understand iptales configuration file or even a command line configuration tool, but I don't know for sure. You might have to google a bit, or you install ISPConfig which brings its own iptables firewall which is easy to configure from a browser...

PuTTY is just an executable file, you put it onto your Windows box, click on it, and it's running. No installation needed!
