You may have two or more firewalls, if you are running a software firewall 
then you will need to configure it to allow access on port 80.  If you are 
running your machine behind another device such as a router then your router 
will have to be configured to allow traffic through port 80 to the machine 
running the web server.

To find out if port 80 or and any other ports are open visit and have all your Common Ports scanned. 
Port 80 should be Open, if it is not then something / someone is blocking
