Here: Google didn't find that for you?

You must have really good reasons for installing a non-supported Fedora release. Fedora 21 is End-Of-Life since end of 2015, you won't receive any update, not even for security-related issues.

thanks, I'm just the summer student and basically its dedicated computer for a science instrument. The computer engineer had software for a similar instrument, but it was a really old version of fedora. For some reason he only updated to 21 (no idea here...)

I think the idea is it would have a firewall that pretty much blocks everything except when we specifically want the computer to do something via internet (not sure if im explaining this right)

Keeping the computer offline (from internet and LAN) will definitely help to keep it secure, and I can understand how that would work in case of a PC that runs a lab device or functions as a data recorder/data processor.

If you guys want a Red-Hat based Linux, that is free but comes with Long Term Support, aiming at stability, you or your supervisor should take a look at CentOS. You will get up to 10 years of updates, without worrying about upgrades. Fedora is aiming at bleeding edge open source software, which you probably don't need in your lab...
