I used the out of the box Mandriva firewall Shorewall.

Using webmin will let you use a gui interface to edit the files found
in /etc/shorewall if you use https:localhost:1000 in your browser
to connect to the webmin server.

Looking at http://www.shorewall.net/Documentation_Index.html there is
a link for Port Ranges in chapter 9.
