Thanks heaps Demonbane for sticking with my post this far!
This is quite odd indeed...I have httpd running on my linux box (10.0.0.2). I have configured my router to foward port 80 from all sources to 10.0.0.2, i have the correct ip assigned to the hostname pointer, and as far as configuring apache goes, i havent touched it....

make you don't have a firewall running blocking the port

Ok, firewalls are kind of configured using IPTables right? What i do know is that i have never installed a commercial firewall product on the linux system. What exaclty am i looking for, should i look in and around /etc/sysconfig/iptables ? I have not tampered with iptables since i did the install, so i can guarantee that the defaults are still in place.
Not sure if all this assists you or not...

The only line of any relevance to port 80 in my iptables script is this:

-A RH-Lokkit-0-50-INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 --syn -j ACCEPT

stop iptables to make sure its not a firewall problem first
Code:
/sbin/service iptables stop

sounds more like a port forwarding problem, if there's a firewall configured on the router make sure it allows incoming port 80.

hrmmm been at this for a while now, i think that the problem is with the linux box.
I have told my router where to send port requests, and have assure that the hostname points to the correct IP. I think the connection breaks when it hits the linux server. Doing some googling on iptables... One question though, since it also didnt work with iptable stopped, does not confirm that the problem is actuallly not with iptables??
