Subject Re: Help needed - cannot access Apache from outside my box
Date Wed, 14 Aug 2002 15:45:44 GMT

If it works locally it should work from the internet as long as you don't have a firewall
and you don't have some entries in access.conf or httpd.conf.
You could try to telnet from an outside server to port 80 (telnet 80) and
see if you get a connection.
If you do you could try it from the server itself. If you can't do it from the internet but
you can do it locally you have a firewall in the middle or apache is configured to deny access.
