Subject [users@httpd] Next Newbee Question - Can´t access host from outside firewall...
Date Mon, 08 May 2006 18:12:19 GMT
Hope someone can consider this question

When getting Apache 2.2 up and running, and doing well on the local LAN
I would like to access it remotely. BUT it does not work :-(
Errormessage in the browser is "can't find host or DNS-failure"

1. I have checked all possible problem by turning off Norton Antivirus
and such stuff...
2. I have linked all the incoming traffic on port 80 in the firewall to
my local webhost. Even switched the firewall off. 
3. I do not understand what the configure is saying in the part belove.
This are the settings at the moment: 

# ServerAdmin: Your address, where problems with the server should be
# e-mailed.  This address appears on some server-generated pages, such
# as error documents.  e.g.
# ServerAdmin # I do not have any own domain
# ServerAdmin # My email, but an error message comes
up when staring up the server when this is switched on

# ServerName gives the name and port that the server uses to identify
# This can often be determined automatically, but we recommend you
# it explicitly to prevent problems during startup.
# If your host doesn't have a registered DNS name, enter its IP address
# ServerName
# ServerName # My remote IP
ServerName # This is my local host IP. The other
alternatives does not help to get remote access as well...
# ServerName localhost:80
# ServerName

Is there any other settings I should consider like Virtual host? Please
give me a hit how I should do.
