You have to disable your firewall, or you have to configure it to allow
traffic from port 80 or whichever you are using (if you don't use port
80, let's say it's 8080, you must request with
the port number after the server name-or-ip address).

The only thing that could be wrong in httpd.conf might be


which says listen only to local machine (loopback).  Make sure it's either

Listen    (e.g. Listen 80) or
Listen  (whatever IP(s) this machine is assigned)

Seriously 1.3 on Windows is a huge mistake (only a clumsy choice on other
architectures since you will never see improvements again - sites shouldn't
feel compelled to migrate but I'd never deploy new ones.)  Jump to 2.0 or 2.2.
