Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache 2.0.40 with dual nics
Date Thu, 11 Mar 2004 17:29:56 GMT
All machines...working or not have an /etc/hosts file.  All these machines
have the exact same config.

And yes....httpd works on all machines when using a browser on the machine
itself pointing to localhost...or

I'm really not suggesting that Apache is not working per say....but that
http does not work to a box when the box has dual nics with at least 1 of
those nics being integrated to the motherboard.  Since the symptom is http
related...I thought I'd ask on the Apache boards if anyone else had seen
this.  My belief is that ultimately it is a hardware/driver issue with
integrated nics....but...again....the symptom is http related so I figured
the people here would be the ones most likely to have encountered it before.

I have also since tried disabling the onboard nic in the BIOS with no

Thanks for the reply.
