    Default firewall

    is there a firewall in this operating system to see if I can monitor inbound and
    outbound traffic.

    Iptables is included in bt3 but is not enabled by default. If IPtables is a little complex for you there is a excellent GUI front end called guarddog which uses IPtables but is a little more user friendly to set up.

    Nothing is secure by default.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    while i completely agree in theory (security is a process, not a product)...
    i would like to throw OpenBSD a bone here.... IMHO, if anything was, it would be. that OS has saved my bacon more than once...
