How do you configure apache to allow access from inside and outside a network? When I access it internally (via IP address) is tries to load the public IP which isn't a local address. The only way that I can get to my own site from home is to connect to a public proxy and come back in to my network, which is a pain because every proxy I try is completely unreliable.
Have you setup name resolution in /etc/hosts? It should not be necessary to specify the port for http connections as it should respond to requests on port 80 which are then sent to the specified DocumentRoot. For example on my server if I use either the IP address or server name I am sent to /var/www/index.htm. If I try a link on the internet to this address I cannot because I am using the same interface. This sounds like either a DocumentRoot problem or a firewall problem.
