apache security for intranet: "listen 80" vs. "listen 127.0.0.1:80"
i just started with apache and am using it for an intranet to host a calendar for everyone in our small office.
i cannot get apache to start if i list in the ports.conf file (ubuntu) the ip address of the network computers followed by the port (for example 192.168.0.101:80). i get an error which i cannot remember right now (am on a computer away from work).
however, if i use "listen 80", then i can access the apache server from another computer.
if i use "listen 80", am i opening the server to the internet? this is something that i want to avoid, which is why i wanted to list the ip addresses specifically.
