Were you able to telnet to the IP that represents the Linux box?

  Well, this is for the Apache but I would be more interested about the Linux files setup,
it seems like it is the Linux setup that does not allow any communication even I can ping
the Linux box.

    Hi george,

    Basically, you only need to modify httpd.conf and
    commonhttpd.conf located at /etc/httpd/conf: With your
    favorite text editor just make sure you get this or
    add it:

    To /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

    ServerType standalone
    ServerRoot /etc/httpd/2.0
    DocumentRoot /whereyou/got/yoursite/files (usually

    To /etc/httpd/conf/commonhttpd.conf 

    User apache (or whatever user you like to run apache
    under, customary apache)

    Group apache (or whatever group you like to run apache
    under, customary apache)

    ServerAdmin (this is for people to know
    whats the webmaster´s mail)

    There´s a section that looks like this:

    # This should be changed to whatever you set
    DocumentRoot to

    I think that´s it, but i should warn you that this is
    the very basic configuration but for making it work
    its ok.

    Hope it works.
