This is new information (not in original post) - Are you saying that
after a reboot, you get a single response with the first hit but after
that a timeout? 

Other things to check out: 

- try using IP address in browser to eliminate DNS issues
- what is on the homepage? I hope it's a plain HTML page... If it's some
clever dynamic content, are you sure it works with an external request?
(eg, if it does something clever with the client-IP, like a reverse DNS
lookup... you might have problems).
- what browser are you using? Get Firefox with the LiveHTTPheaders
extension and look at the request-response headers for more clues.

The point about quadruple-checking the FW is that, for security reasons,
a FW usually *drops* disallowed packets (as opposed to refusing the
connection). So timeout problems are often due to FWs (if you hear
hoof-beats, think horses, not zebras). Are you sure you only have one
FW? Check the process table...

*Now* I can see, since this is the first time you post any config
snippets. The point I was making is that you should be clear that if you
do not define a Listen, apache listens by default to port 80 on *all*
IPs. However, once you define one Listen with an IP, apache listens
*only* to that IP.
