I have installed RH7.1 with full install. And then added telnet and ftp in 
the setupprogram and i use as IP. Internet connection by modem 
works. But noone can connect to me by telnet    or ftp (from my local netword) (and it is not possible to se http 
page in (the internet providers IP i get when connecting my modem)
it works from my machine but not from any other in the locan network. I 
have setted up the firewall to accept averything in and out. All this has

This sounds like the default firewall is blocking access.  Please run either
lokkit or gnome-lokkit to enable access to these ports.
