Subject RE: [users@httpd] Networking problem?
Date Wed, 29 Jun 2005 20:25:32 GMT
Is there any way to know there is a firewall blocking
between Linux runing Apache web server, and a Windows
PC?

Do I need a SSL server certificate for the Linux
machine, in order to run Apache web server?

Thanks,
Joe
