Question I cant browse my web server on another computer


Greetings

Im using SLES9

I configured my dns and I go to dnsreport.com and all components pass (except reverse mx).Using the server(firewall is OFF), I can browse my web server but using another computer and try to browse, it says the connection has timeout. Can anyone guide me to my wrong configuration.

*this server is a fresh installation.

Are you behind a router on a home network? If so is the router set to forward port 80 requests to the internal Web server? Can you do a dig or nslookup to make sure that when you type in the site name the correct address is resolved?

You'll need to provide some more detail as to your setup.

My webserver is in PUBLIC IP. Do I need to forward port 80 even im using public ip.OR does it matter to my configuration on my SLES? When I use dig, nslookup or host...it resolve correctly.Pls guide me.

Could you provide some details on the configuration of your webserver? Is it Apache? Have you made sure it listens to port 80 on the right network interface (ie not "localhost")? Is there any firewall rule that might be blocking access? What URL do you use?
