Subject Re: [users@httpd] Beginner - port 80 and firewall
Date Wed, 14 Apr 2004 12:52:07 GMT

Have you tried to use the browser with http://localhost/ to see if
that would bring up the site??  What are you trying to use to see
the page?? Are you doing localhost, or  If you are
trying to use and it is not reaching it, it could be
a DNS issue.  

Please explain more what method you are using to reach the page.

connect to it through the browser.

6).  I disabled the Firewall but to no avail.

Port 80 being already in use (more or less as I expected).  The only other prgramme that might
be a culprit I guess is Mailwasher which I use for anti-spam.

do that (less so the Firewall) expecially until I am sure it is the problem.  If posible I
would like to be able to run Apache and keep my protection.

problem and can advise me.
