Question DHCP configuration and incoming telnet, ssh

Hi Linux gurus, especially to you master peter (peter_robb),

I got another question, i configured the network of my slackware 10 machine as DHCP so when i run the "ifconfig eth0" command, the output was:

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:02:E3:55:06:2B
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
RX packets:1904 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:214267 (209.2 Kb) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
Interrupt:5 Base address:0xe000 Memory:dfdfe000-dfdff080

is this correct? did i get the assigned IP address? pardon me, coz our network here is protected by firewall so we cannot ping other machines.

as for the telnet and ssh configuration, what would be the right thing to do in order for my slackware linux to accept telnet and/or ssh from other machines?

the default ssh port is 22 you would just need to allow it in your firewall configuration and if you are behind a router you would have to port forward it to the linux box. I wouldn't suggest using telnet as it is insecure but I think if memory serves me correctly that the port for telnet is 23.
