Apache doesn't control how packets get routed to your computer, it
only controls what it does when they arrive. If you listen on *:80 or, then anything that can route packets to that
server/port will communicate with apache.

Eg, if you configure your router to forward packets coming to your
external IP on port 80 to, then computers outside your
network would now be able to access your server, but nothing changes
in apache.

If you have configured apache to listen on *:80 or, and
cannot connect to it from another machine on the same subnet
( for example), then you have some firewall issue between
those two computers.
