It is not clear *how* you try to connect to apache - via the public internet? directly from
inside your LAN? Let us assume it's via the internet so that your request goes out to the
internet and back in again via your ISP-router-modem.

Some experiments:

- can you hit the site directly from inside the LAN? [to identify routing problems]
- what if you use the IP address instead of the domain name? [to identify DNS problems]

Assuming these two things don't work, then it looks like an apache config problem:

- Check your "Listen" directive. Are you listening to port 80? If in doubt, comment out all
Listens then apache will default to port 80.

- Do you specify the correct IP address in any Listen? If in doubt, comment it out and apache
will default to listen to all active IPs (I assume the PC picks up its IP address by DHCP
from the modem?)

- Do other services on the server respond? (eg, SMTP on port 25, ICMP echo on port 7)

 I was blaming it on the dynamic address changing and the ISP DNS being cached. It made sense
even though the dynamic IP address was updated at ZoneEdit, the ISP cache still held the old
address.

problem even though the IP address is not changing. I can query the modem, see the IP address,
and check ZoneEdit and it is the same. So now the cache should not need to be changed. So
why is the connection being refused?
