You can check the exact settings by looking in /etc/sysconfig/
This is run out ot /etc/init.d/intables
If I recall correctly- the 'High' settings blocks the standard service
ports, but these files will tell you for sure.

You can check the logs in /var/log - Redhat Specific: /var/log/messages
You should also check out Redhat's security recommendations for services
when you install - depending on what you are using the computer for.
Good luck.
