The access_log has: - - [09/Aug/2003:09:24:25 -0500] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 

but nothing seems to go through.  The error_log has nothing in it.  
Maybe I'll set it to debug and see what comes up.  Although the last 
time I did that I got nothing.

I'm fresh out of answers.  The configuration worked fine on another 
network that was bridged but it doesn't work on this one that is 
routed.  I'm not a network newbie but this one has me stumped so badly 
I'm thinking of going back to school!

I don't have ftp set up on this network.  The pages serve fine on 
another machine on the same network.  It's just outside.  I have port 
80 forwarded to the machine in question and holes opened in the 
firewall for port 80 traffic but nothing seems to help.
