Help w/ FTP and SSH rules

Well part of the questions deals with iptables and part deals with configuration.

What ports do I need to open to run an ftp server from my Linux host? And how do I configure SSH so that I can manage my server from a remote location?

Also what ports to open to allow SSH access from a remote client? What software need to be run at the remote client that will allow my to login a session.

If you have an iptables example it would be helpful as well.

I don't have an iptables example for you, but here is the project page: It has comprehensive documentation.

ftp server - usually runs on port 21.
ssh server - usually runs on port 22.

Instead of running an ftp server, consider learning about and running the sftp-subsystem. Also, don't start running any servers until you understand them and know how to secure them.
