Challenging Requirements

I've sold a customer a LAMP website at an extremely low price and I'm pulling hardware out of retirement to meet the requriements.

I'm using a 2002 era Dell PowerEdge 300SC server with a 800 Mhz Pentium III with 1Gb RAM.

I've installed Fedora 13 and the latest Apache web server 2.2.something.

Now the web server is running but I can't access the web server from other computers of the LAN

For example, the server IP address is and, on the server, I can browse to and get the Welcome to Fedora page. I added a page to /var/www/html and named it default.htm and I can browse to and see that page. Obviously the Fedora and Apache components are working.

When I go to another computer on the LAN (all Windows) I can ping and all is good. However if I browse to or I get can not connect\connection times out.

Second issue, I wanted to remote cotrol the server so I installed client on my Win7 laptop but can't figure out how to intstall the TightVNC server on the Fedora machine.

All help is appreciated.

1) Run "system-config-firewall" and make sure you have a check in "WWW (HTTP)"
2) You'll want tigerVNC, the instructions are here.
