Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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.
