I have no idea whether these will apply to your problem, but they were
my gotchas.  After configuring my firewall to forward rather than drop
port 80 requests, I neglected to edit the forward conf, telling it where
to send it.

Another gotcha is that my firewall won't accept a LAN side origin on the
WAN side.  Thus I can't connect to my server over the internet from a
machine on my LAN.  There's no reject, just a black hole & time out.

BTW, thanks for finding the word wrap.  That's rare among lookOut users.
