Create a standard firewall

This script order a firewall service on a virtual instance using the SoftLayer_Product_Order::placeOrder
method. First we'll build a skeleton of a SoftLayer_Container_Product_Order_Network_Protection_Firewall
object, providing the ID of virtual instance in which the firewall service will be configured.
