Subject Re: [users@httpd] connection refused

Check your firewall. Usually they default to "block all in" then have
rules to make exceptions for ports 80, 22, 23 and so on. Your firewall
may be blocking port 81. Also most consumer routers in use today have
firewalls built in. Make sure the router's firewall isn't blocking port
81. Finally, I had a problem with a DSL modem supplied in connection
with MSN. It also had a firewall which blocked just about everything
incoming.
