That is probably not an Apache problem.  If Apache responds correctly 
when called from the same computer, then Apache is fine.

Your problem is probably that something is blocking accesses to the port 
80 of your computer, when trying to access it from another computer.
Check the firewall settings for example, or SELinux, or /etc/hosts.deny 
or whatever may be in the way.

 From the other computer, try the following :
- open a command window
- type "ping"
   Does that work ?
- if yes, then try "telnet 80"
   Does that work, or do you get an error ?
