comment Why should I firewall servers?
True, but that same server probably has port 3306 (mysql) and a variety of other protocols which would potentially benefit from a firewall. That is not to say that you should have no other protection; just that the firewall isn't going to hurt. Also, I think you missed my point that all traffic doesn't need to be open for all users. Port 22 may need to be open, but not on ALL your hosts, and certainly not to the entire internet (or accounting and HR either). Closing 25 for accounting if they are supposed to operate over 465 may mitigate some spam malware for example.
