Subject Installation Help Needed (Solved)
Date Thu, 01 Apr 2004 18:46:36 GMT
Thank you much for your trouble-shooting help. I was able to get 
things working thanks to you. In the end it was my firewall script. 
The port was open as I said, however, I forgot that I had specified a 
port range for re-direction and yup 8080 was in that range. So I 
changed it to exclude 8080 and voila it all worked fine.

I'd forgotten all about lynx heh. Lynx worked just fine on the 
machine as did telnetting to the 8080 port from the host machine. 
Which narrowed it down. So thanks again for helping me pin point it. 
I know someone else suggested that it was a firewall issue and I 
suspected they were right but I needed to find a way to determine 
that for sure and for the life of me I couldn't figure out what the 
deal was. I'd checked my script before but since I wasn't sure it was 
the culprit I didn't examine it as strongly as I just did. :)

So thanks again.
