Please reread my post again - "order deny, allow" is OK, it is the next two lines you should
swap, i.e.

Order Deny,Allow
Deny from All
Allow from

If you do ipconfig now does it confirm it?

All the requests are timed - look at the bottom for the most recent. Otherwise, make a unique
request then look for it in the log. E.g. if you request "banana.html" and then search for
"banana" in the access_log, you will see a line with banana.html and a 404 error code (assuming
you *don't* have banana.html). The first item on the line is the remote host which usually
is just an IP address...

Also, is your client computer connected directly to the server via a hub or bus? You don't
have them on different networks perhaps with a FW or router or bridge in the middle which
could be doing network address translation, do you?
