Subject RE: [users@httpd] Port binding problems not resolved

You already know where your problem is.
Port 80
And verything should work fine.

"Port" settings is the default, as soon as you add the "Listen" command,
which is a selective and more flexible type of "port", you'd have to remove
the "port" now try doing:
telnet 80 (that should connect if that's your IP address)
and then try doing:
telnet 81 (that's a loopback for your own IP and port)

when you want to access you website from within your network (192.168.x.x/24
is private address, so I guess that you are in a network) you should type:
http://localhost:81 or

I would suggest that before you are running after the router, try solving
the "internal" problem.
If everything I said will work, then you can keep going with the router

All the best,
Jeff Cohen
