If the box has been compromised, I would not trust any firewall running
on the box itself. Who/What ever compromised the system may just disable
the firewall and/or scan other ports as well. Instead, I would consider 
installing another system or piece of hardware in front of the
compromised system and having that do the filtering.

Also, its usually good form to have the firewall in place before
deploying a honeypot. That way none of the outbound scans get out.
