To add a bit more info to this, I'd check the following...

make sure selinux is disabled in /etc/selinux/config

check/disable your firewall via the terminal by running "setup", and  
selecting "Firewall configuration" in the menu.

I'm assuming this is for a home LAN as I would recommend caution when  
disabling firewalls and selinux on a host that is directly accessible  
to the internet.
