This way you just allow anonymous access and if your users want to upload anything to your server they will use a secure connection to their home directories. Good for loggin purposes too!

Keep in mind that system-config-firewall opens a port in a general
sense and offers
no granularity to specify only this or that IP.
Is there a system-config-securitylevel package for F11?
