Question Security level and SSH

I'm setting up a web server apache based on Mandrake 10.0. I set up the security level to "More High" but I can not access via ssh to the server from my pc. If I use the security level "High", everythings works!

How can I keep the security level to "More High" and allow the access via ssh from my pc (with a static ip) or a group of pc?
Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure what does the level change actually change in configuration (because that's how the levels work). The things to check are:
* firewall - may block ssh attempts
* ssh configuration. Look into /etc/ssh/sshd_config - options like AllowUsers etc
* ssh may be off on the higher level
