Firewall Config Screen


The Fedora install went smoothly and I am now at the screen stating,
"
You can use a firewall to allow access to specific services on your computer from other computers and prevent unauthorized access from the outside world. Which services, if any, do you wish to allow acccess to?

FTP
Mail(SMPT)
NFS4
SSH
Samba
Secure WWW(HTTPS)
Telnet
WWW(HTTP)
"

By default the SSH option is checked should I check others too?

Hi.

No, they are only for services you are providing to the internet.

Only select ssh, if you plan to login to your computer from someplace else (over the internet).

Cheers, Glenn
