[svlug] Local computer responds "connection refused"

This sounds like a problem with the firewall configuration. When I loaded 
Red Hat 7.2 it was necessary to decide what level of firewall to mount. 
For fun I made mine complete, so even a root user can't telnet or ftp to 
my linux.

Now on my linux hackers try to get on and try passwords but it fails to 
work. Likewise a LAN computer trying to telnet or ftp would fail.
