Can't access Linux web server web pages from LAN client
I am new at using Linux and just got Mandrake Linux 9.0 on my machine
and trying setting up a small LAN using the Linux box as my server with
two Mac OS 9 clients and one Window 98 SE client. I only have one of the
Mac's connected to the LAN right now until I learn what the hell I am
Now for the problem, I setup the DHCP server and got that working and
everthing seems to work fine. Then I got my web sever (Apache 1.3) up
and running. I can access my web pages on the server itself with the
addresses http://localhost/ and http://127.0.0.1/ but can't access them
from my client.
Can somebody please tell me what i'm doing wrong or what I'm not doing right?
Are you typing in hostname or 127.0.0.1 from your other PCs?
Sorry for checking the obvious mistake....
You'd have to type in http://the ip address of your webserver here:80 and see if that works
Still no luck
hey jaydave !
well did u check the error log and access log files of the web server and are you able to ping to the server with that ip address from the client i.e ping 192.168.0.1 and what does it shows when u try to access the web server from the client side browser ? and check the fire wall rules !!!
post the relpy
on your win98 box, ping the netbios name of your linux box and it will resolve the IP. if you are not using samba or didn't setup a netbios name then that won't work.
Or on your linux box as root type, ifconfig
this will tell you your ip address for all your nics
