Thanks a lot for your response Owen. But the same thing happened when I
installed Apache in a computer which was connected to the network of my
University(with a static IP) and tried to access it from my home. Do I have
to change anything in the configuration files (ServerName or something like
that?).
I am really surprised that you know the greek word for money. Have you
visited my country?

Thanks Again

Greg Liapis
