So, you'd like to effectivly mirror the settings on the linux box, that you set on the widows box.
It won't be easy... while the XML file will be a good place to keep the settings, as it is a very universal format, gathering the data, and applying it will require two very different methods.

I'm no programmer, but there are already tools that M$ has built in that can query just about anything in the OS.
http://www.xinn.org/wmic.html  http://xinn.org/logonscripting102.html http://xinn.org/misc-scripts/examples102.txt
WMIC has an XML output format, as does the MSBA tool form M$

You'd then have to parse those settings into linux, the firewall rules would have to be read from the XML file, then converted to IPTable rules...
http://xinn.org/iptables-nat.html
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -i eth1 -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -i eth1 -j DROP
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -i eth0 -j ACCEPT

I'm not sure what other settings from the M$ OS you'd want to duplicate to the linux machine...
