Try the firewall script at:  http://projectfiles.com/firewall.  I have 
used this script
on RH 7.x, 8 and 9 boxes.  It is very simple to use for simple 
applications, and
yet has considerable power for more challenging situations.  It requires 
in order to operate.   The "graphical" installer actually uses 'dialog', 
and has a
text-based menu interface.

If I understand your request correctly, it would be handled that way by 
Once the firewall is started, any external connection that is not 
explicitly allowed
will be denied.
