My understanding of your message is that you can see the website on the
Mac server via localhost on the Mac or over the LAN from another Mac. So
apache is running OK and the network is probably configured OK on the

>From the Windows ME box, you can ping but cannot telnet, ftp or http to
the Mac server. Note that ping uses ICMP whereas all the others use
TCP/IP so this is not impossible...  

I assume you connect the ME box and the two Macs to a hub so they should
all see one another and that there is no router or firewall between the
ME and the hub or Macs. If there is, remove it while you test.

How do you define the Mac server when you try telnet, http etc. from ME?
Do you use the IP address or a server name? If a server name, how does
the ME resolve this name to an IP address? what if you use the IP
address directly?
