Do you have servers for ssh, telnet, NFS installed? Ubuntu doesn't come 
with any of them by default. If you have them installed, do you also 
have a firewall installed which blocks connections from the outside? 
While ufw is installed by default (IIRC) it isn't enabled, so you should 
remember if you enabled it yourself.

And please don't repeat your mail several times within an hour if you 
don't want to be ignored. This is an international list and it may take 
a day until everyone has seen your question.
