Cool Level & Checks block Services (Telnet, VNC...)

I have discovered that if I set the "Level and Checks" to Higher, It will prevent the other computers from accessing the Linux services, including Telnet, VNC and others, even though I have configured the firewall to allow all the services (No Firewall). I have to set the Level and Checks to High to make it work.

I want the Higher Level and Checks while also allowing Telnet, VNC and other services. How do I make it work?

you should specify a distro, and also outline how/where you are changing things. for instance I have no idea where this "Level and Checks" Toggle/dialogue is...

Sorry. It's Mandrake 10. In Drakesec, under "Level and Checks", if I configured it to Higher level and leave the Firewall open, I cannot access the services (Telnet, VNC, and others). I have to set the "Level and Checks" level to high for it to work.
