1) Install CSF follow their documentation @ http://www.configserver.com/free/csf/install.txt
2) Navigate to the Plugins section and select "ConfigServer Security&Firewall"
3) Go to firewall configuration on the CSF page in the "csf - ConfigServer Firewall" section
4) Scroll to IPV4 port settings, then in TCP_IN, TCP_OUT set the ports you want to allow in and outbound
5) Enter the relevant ports you need opening in the TCP_IN/TCP_OUT/UDP_IN/UDP_OUTS field (remove port(s) if you want to block!)
6) Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Change" then on the following page "Restart csf+ldf"

That's it, time to test! :)
