Subject Re: [users@httpd] apache not responding to firewall routed ports
Date Tue, 14 Sep 2004 19:50:17 GMT
It sounds like packets are coming in and reaching your server, but not
going back out.  When your server answers, the FW is probably blocking 
outgoing packets.

I'd check your firewall logs.  You may have to turn on logging, depending
on the firewall.
