I have a XenServer installed that faces the internet, we just use very long passwords for the XenCenter root user and ssh access.

I'm not sure but I think IPtables runs on them just fine ( in the end it's just a modded CentOS).

If you can I seriously advice to get a small firewall/router so you can VPN into it rather than face it all the time to the internet.
