This is not an XFS issue, but a Wolverine issue. With Wolverine, RedHat
has instituted some security using ipchains (or iptables, I forget). During
the installation process, you get a screen which asks you what security
level would you like. The default, IIRC, will disable most daemons and
allow access only with SSH.
