Question(s) default firewall in Fedora



Dear fellow Fedora users,

According to some users, Fedora has a default firewall that adds basic protection.  There is no service "firewall", but some users have pointed out that iptables takes care of this.  

[root localhost ~]# service iptables status
Table: filter
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
num  target     prot opt source               destination

Which traffic if any is allowed to come in to our computers if and when we do get on the internet?

We can use system-config-??? to configure simple iptables to change stuff around and/or get webmin?

I know that by default Fedora provides a good basic firewall, but are there any howto's/readme's as to how to learn more about Firewalls in Fedora.

Thanks,

Antonio
