Apache Not responding


Apache is up and running. I am running with virtual hosts enabled. I can access the web server when on the server itself by localhost, IP address, and by either of the two virtual hosts dns names. I can ping my server from another server using IP address or dns. Here is the problem. If I try from another machine to get to my server, nothing happens. It just sits there and stares at me.

I am trying to move this stuff from a SUN Ultra 5 to RedHat 7.3 Linux and eventually to RedHat 9.0. This is my first experience with RedHat. A freind of mine said I should go to Mandrake, I choose RedHat.

Anyone has a suggestion on what my problem may be.

Do you have a firewall enabled?

When I installed RedHat, I choose medium firewall protection. If the firewall is the problem, what do I do in Linux to allow WEB access to the WEB server?

Use RH's security GUI to disable the firewall to verify the problem.

You can change the firewall rules to accept traffic on port 80 i.e. webserver.

You can also verify if it's due to firewall by looking at the ACCEPT and REJECT rules by running 'iptables -L'.
