Hey everyone, sorry to be asking such a simple question, but I've been trying to google it with no luck, I'm sure I'm just wording something in my searches wrong and that this issue is rather common, so please forgive me for posting a question about it. However I'm really at a loss, since this problem makes no sense to me.
On to the details! I'm running a version of Slackware 10.1, along with apache 1.3.33. I am running it behind a firewall, but I'm not having firewall issues because if I port scan it from outside of the firewall (i.e. asked a few friends to do it from their homes) they can see the version of apache and that the port is open.
The issue is this, I can always view my web page from my intranet no problem. That's cool, I call it's by it's internal IP address and I have no problems. However if I try to call it from outside of my network, i.e. over the internet, sometimes I get connected and have no problems, but other times I get a "site contacted... waiting for reply" and the page never loads. In my logs this shows up as a "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200, but that's all that shows up in the logs, never anything about the get request for the index, the images or anything.
Honestly this just doesn't make sense, why would it work some of the time for some people and not have issues for everyone? If it's of any use the site is www.programmershandbook.com
and feel free to give it a test of your own.
Terribly sorry to bother everyone, but any help/similar experinces would be of great help! Thank you for taking the time to read this post, and I look forward to any assistance anyone can provide.
